Glass Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets

Because of the acidity and corrosive nature of vinegar, wanting to find the ideal vinegar cruet sets should be given due consideration. Vinegar should be stored in containers made out of glass, ceramic or stainless steel. A cork or stopper made from a non-corrosive material that won’t break down will also need to be an addition. You do not have to worry about the corrosive nature of olive oil as it is a non-acidic food.

It makes sense that cruet sets made from copper, aluminum or chrome finishers should not be used. They may look good but the inside finish will be dissolved in the contents of the bottle due to the acidity of the vinegar. This can and in most cases does endanger the health of anyone using these containers. Inexpensive stoppers or spouts that have come from China should not be used. The quality is not there and when preparing an ideal dinner party, the last thing you want to be concerned about is anything purchased with a “Made in China” label.
