Oil and Vinegar Cruets For The Kitchen and Dining Table

An olive oil bottle, known as an oil and vinegar cruet for the table and kitchen is a very practical and necessary purchase. Olive oil is very healthy for your heart and it is very flavorful, especially when using extra virgin olive oil. Of course, the cost of cold pressed extra virgin olive oil is rather steep, but the taste outweighs out of pocket expenses. That is why it is so important to buy a vessel that will not waste a drop of the precious olive oil when serving it at the table or using it when cooking. When the recipe you are using calls for a “drizzle” of extra virgin olive oil, it means a very small stream of oil will need to be poured out rather hastily.

Oil And Vinegar Cruet Sets

A glass Oil and Vinegar Cruet set should be created with an elegant looking, practical and useful design, especially in a pair. A cruet that has oil dripping down the side will make any guest reluctant to hold it let alone use it during a meal. Olive oil purchased from the store in a dark bottle does not add to the ambiance of a successful meal until it has been poured in an oil and vinegar cruet from The cruet can then save you from having a mess of drips and spills, saving you money that would be wasted on spilled cold pressed extra virgin olive oil.

There are numerous designs and popular decorative cruets which feature gourmet or Tuscan scenes on the bottles. Cruets made in China will have labeled silk screen to appear hand painted. If the cruet pour spouts are made from any other material other than glass or stainless steel, they will corrode when vinegar is added to the bottle. Most chefs prefer oil and vinegar cruets made from glass so that the contents of the bottle can be seen.

Inexpensive olive oil bottles can be bought at retail stores and grocery stores and they come with a rubber and chromed spout. Unfortunately, though, these cruets tend to tip over easily and drip oil down the sides. Almost all of them break or shatter during light use. You get what you pay for. The Oil and Vinegar Cruets from are made of borosilicate glass and they are the most durable cruets of all. For storage, olive oil needs to be stored in a dark, air tight bottle. This will protect the precious olive oil from ultraviolet lights. Cork stoppers are provided to seal the bottle once it is opened.

The Grape Cruet Is The Best Oil And Vinegar Cruet


Olive Oil Cruet Set

Finding drip free olive oil bottles and Oil And Vinegar Cruets can be a difficult task.  After continual use, the sides of an olive oil bottle can become rather slippery, when trying to pour. This often occurs with the cheaper store bought olive oil bottles. These olive oil bottles often have a rubber or chromed metal spout, which can make pouring messy. Eventually the poorly made spouts will become corroded by the vinegar and be very distasteful for using at the dinner table. An olive oil bottle spout should be made from stainless steel, ceramic, or glass material to remain hygienic and easy to clean. The best solution is an Glass Olive Oil Cruet, like the one in the picture. It is known as an oil and vinegar cruet.

You will want to dispense the olive oil you use differently than you store it. If olive oil is stored in clear, large, type bottles it will be less likely to be protected from air and light. Most olive oils are stored in a colored or dark bottle to protect it from any ultraviolet light. The bottles also have a re-sealable cap or cork to try to keep the oil fresh after opening. Inexpensive olive oil bottles are not tasteful to use on the table when serving guests. A decanting olive oil bottle or drizzle cruet is usually recommended for everyday use at the dinner table. These hold about 6 to 8 ounces. The olive oil will stay fresh longer, but will require refilling more often.

Glass Olive Oil Cruet

The ideal Glass Olive Oil Cruet has two features which allow it to be used as a drizzle cruet as an olive oil bottle, which is the primary function of the Oil And Vinegar Cruet decanter. These serving bottles have a glass spout that will not corrode, and a large flared neck that will curb the annoying drips that occur with the cheaper store bought bottles.

Oil And Vinegar Cruets for olive oil and balsamic vinegar show off the artistic Euro design and are practical as well.

The flared neck of the bottles are especially useful as a built in funnel when it comes to refilling. The drip less feature of these olive oil bottles help prevent the slippery or sticky touch that always seems to accompany dispensing olive oil or vinegar.
