Blue Monday - EVOO Dispenser

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The last time we purchased olive oil, we bought a large bottle. It was clumsy to handle, and way too much olive oil would spill out whenever I used it.  What a mess!

I began to long for a dispenser that would allow more control. So, I asked for an olive oil dispenser for my birthday. Of course, the color I chose was Blue--in fact, it's Rachel Ray's Agave Blue.

Here it is, on my kitchen counter right next to the stove. Doesn't it look pretty?



I copied the picture below from the web page. EVOO stands for extra virgin olive oil. It's really handy because it dispenses only as much oil as you wish. No more glug, glug, wasted oil.


Happy Blue Monday!

I am not sure if i wanted an oil dispenser that looks like the one from the garage of my Dad *lol* i would always feel like using oil, that`s not meant for eating. But the colour is gorgeous.

Hi Sally!

What a good idea. I've been thinking for a long time to create me something. And then of course I would also choose blue.

Best wishes to you
Anne

Love your olive oil bottle, blue, great shape and very handy. Thank you for Blue Monday Sally. I finally got my dahlia's planted (about 1 month late) and they will all be surprises because I bought the tubers at a church sale.

A pretty and practical device. It almost looks like a sculpture.

jeannettestgermain said...

A lovely blue! Right now I am using a mix of olive oil and butter, or coconut oil, which "they" say is healthier (until they find something else, haha). Have a great week!

Wandering Wren said...

I know what you mean I get huge tins of olive oil and it is always messy, what a great birthday present for you! Have a great week Sally :)

GOOD MORNING SALLY, WE JUST ARRIVED HOME FROM FL LAST NIGHT. THIS WEEK IS PACKING AT CHURCH BUT I DID GET A PHOTO UP FOR BLUE MONDAY JUST NOW. IT IS A REALLY FUN PHOTO AND Oops, my caps are on. I do not have time to start over. Sigh!

I really love your new olive oil dispenser. I want one too. It is the best idea and for gifts as well. Very pretty on your counter. One of our daughters leaves her big bottle of olive oil on her stove. I'm on it.

I'm off to church.

Love, Jeanne

Deborah Kay at The Paint Splash said...

I love the shape of this dispenser ! I have one a friend gave me but it doesn't have a handle.

DougPhoto2009 said...

Sally, Rachel Ray is the best. Great products, great recipes, and great TV show. Thanks for sharing.

Nick V. said...

Looks just the right size, shape and of course colour, Sally!
Thanks for hosting.

Jim said...

I'll have to get one of those for my mum. She would love it.

LV said...

Good morning Sally. Trust all is well with you and that Friday turned out okay. Since I am not big on cooking anymore, seldom use olive oil. I love the dispenser and the little house next to it. My air conditioner is not cooling. It picked a fine time to go out on the hottest day this year. The AnnA from Sweden that left you a comment, is one of my special overseas friends. We keep in touch through blog and she sends me little things from time to time. Never knew her or so many other wonderful people until I started blogging.

Nick V. said...

Thanks for hosting, Sally!

Marie C said...

Lovely olive oil dispenser! It's a great idea, too, and very pretty.

Jeannie Marie said...

Those are very handy, especially with the little flap over the opening. Happy cooking!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

That is a beautiful oil dispenser, Sally! Very stylish design and pretty blue color.


PS: My second granddaughter was born this morning! Two hour labor and all went well--will be putting photos and info up on facebook later in the day when we see her.

Oops, I'm feeling a bit green with envy. Very nice. And something that will now be on my wish list.
