Oil and Vinegar Cruets

Oil and vinegar cruets not only look great, they are practical as well. You could even consider them a good investment for improving your health and quality of life. Having one in your kitchen cupboard, on the kitchen counter, or on the dinner table can help you transition from eating gloppy bottled salad dressings to enjoying the subtlety and healthiness of a simple vinaigrette.

Advantages

Storing your ingredients, in particular oil, in air tight containers like these will increase their shelf life and having them in easy dispensers will make you more likely to grab them when the time comes. Put a cruet of olive oil on the table to replace butter as a bread or vegetable topping and you'll soon find your family reaching for it.

Some of these cruets you can order already containing oil and vinegar, but hopefully you will soon need to replenish them with your favorite vinegar and a quality olive oil. Please also note that not all of these are dishwasher safe.
