chef's squirt bottles (with caps!) ?

Like the chefs use to decorate a plate with sauces. The only ones I can find have no caps. Need caps.

      the only ones my S&F has are capless.

        Are you sure they are capless? Sometimes they invert the lids so the pointy part of the top rests inside the bottle.

    2. I use empty bottles of Braggs aminos and Sriacha sauce for squirters as they both have caps and are a convenient size.

      1. I bought a dozen of them w/ caps at a restaurant supply store for $1.00 per.

          1. I've seen many chefs use plastic bottles intended for hair dye. You might want to check a beauty supply store.

              I have seen the bottles you mention, but I would be very careful about putting food in bottles that are not labeled as safe for human consumption or NSF approved. Acidic food or sauces and hot caramel can leech toxic compounds into food. I would prefer to spend the extra money to get a safe container, than risking my guests health on a bottle because I saved $.50.
