Marthat Stewart's Olive oil Cruet she uses for cooking

madonna Feb 23, 2010 09:59 AM

Does anyone know where I could get the Olive oil cruet Martha Stewart uses when shes cooks on her show?

    Some years ago, on her original show, she did a segment on adapting vintage bottles for use as cruets. I think she's still using the same type thing. The stoppers are available as kitchen and bartending equipment.

      Don't know about MS, but I use a pour spout stuck in an old wine bottle. It's like the picture, only with a cork stopper instead of the plastic flanges. I recommend the kind with a little hinged cap at the end (as shown) rather than the kind with a little removable plastic cap (troublesome and easy to lose).

        Hi Soup,

        What about those with metal bearing?

          Hi CK - I've never seen those before, but I'm kind of skeptical. I like the fact that the kind with the hinged metal cap seals off the entire spout, not just the bottle. Also, the bearing mechanism looks hard to clean, and I wonder whether it would work well with thick oils. TS

            Ah, come to think of it, I think those are sold for alcohols, so it may not work as well for thick oil.

              On one of MS shows she was instructing how to poach a salmon and she mentioned because she had so many requests and e-mails asking where her Olive oil cruet is sold she put the information on her website. I was pretty sure she said it was sold at O&Co.. I did not bother writing it down because she had said it was on her website. Later when I went there , it is not there nor is it mentioned on O & Co's website. I find that most of the glass cruets are made so cheaply and fall apart. I've went through several. Her's not only looks beautiful but also looks well made.
