Savora Oil Misters In Your Color

Savora Misto Oil Sprayer

Pump oil sprayers have become a standard accessory in the kitchen. Makes sense: they use no propellents and spray a fine mist of oil on whatever you point them at. However, while elegant, the contraptions have mostly lacked color. Or at least, the color of your choosing.

The Savora Misto Oil Sprayer is available in a variety of colors: Crimson Red, Indigo, Raven Purple, Persimmon, Passion Pink, Noir Black. So now, instead of repainting the kitchen to match, all you need is to choose your color. Whoever said it was difficult to accessorize? Now about that toaster…

Olive Oil And Vinegar Sitting In A Tree

Vintage Chic Vinegar and Oil Dispenser w/ Pour Spouts & Metal Stand

Olive oil and vinegar may come in some of the more attractive packaging that inhabit our supermarket shelves, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved upon by eliminating it all together (after it gets home from the store, that is). If scooping handfuls of olive oil from a baggie isn’t your thing, you’re gonna need a serving device to store your salad dressings in.

Can the cooking spray

Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer

Flavored olive oil can be a delicious way to season vegetables. Keeping herbs and spices in oil imparts flavor into every drop. That’s lucky considering sometimes all you want is a few drops. Trying to throttle back on the olive oil can be a delicate operation, and for that there is the Misto Gourmet Olive Oil Sprayer.

Featuring a brushed aluminum housing, the oil sprayer disperses contents without the use of chemicals or propellants. Standing at almost 8-inches tall, the handy kitchen gadget allows you to precisely control the amount of oil (flavored, or not) that you wish to use.

Oil and vinegar one drop at a time

Pipette Oil & Vinegar by Design House Stockholm

Sure, you could use an oil mister to dress up your greens, or even the old fashioned way of pouring (gasp!) a mixture over your salad, but I think that’s all a little too last millennium. In this scientific age we all need to embrace the era that we live in. If that includes salad dressing, then so be it. I am prepared to meet the future head on; now you can too.

The Pipette Oil & Vinegar set by Design House Stockholm intends to bring up to date the way that we store and serve our salad essentials. Doling out exact measurements drop by drop, you have full control over your salad. The pipette set, designed by Camilla Kropp, is the perfect serving solution for the precision cook (or budding molecular gastronomist) in all of us.

Flavor your food with Prepara Oil Mister

Prepara Oil Mister

You know those store-bought spray oils in a can that you use for maybe one or two things? Well, say goodbye to those, because the Prepara Oil Mister makes it easy to use not only the oil of your choosing, but to flavor it with herbs and spices too. Simply fill the BPA glass reservoir with oil and whatever you want and the unique filtering system will keep the sprayer from getting clogged.

Use it to add a thin layer of (delicious) oil to salads, or anything else you can think of. I’ve always sparingly used those somewhat off-tasting spray oil cans on air-popped popcorn just to give the salt something to stick to. Now, I can ditch the can entirely and actually add some flavor too.
