Plastic Oil Bottle Caps

You know how much we love interesting cooking life hacks and unusual facts about kitchen appliances. However, until recently, we didn’t know anything about why plastic oil bottle caps have such unusual slits.

If you, just like us, thought that they only make the oil run more slowly, this article is for you! It turns out that all this time we could simplify our everyday life.

What Are the Slits in Plastic Oil Bottle Caps For?

The oil does pour out a little slower due to the special structure of the cap. It can be either slits or a cap with holes. At the same time, if you need to pour back the excess oil, the task is much more complicated. So what’s the matter?

It turns out that you can insert a dispenser into such a cap. You can do it easily, and the dispensers are available at any kitchen appliances store.

This little thing helps to control the amount of oil. Also, the bottle won’t get greasy.

Some put a bottle in a small tray. Others put an old cloth on so that it absorbs the oil. But you can simply buy such a dispenser that will solve the problem and will last you many years!

An oil dispenser is especially convenient while dressing salads or for measuring oil with spoons. It is also budget-friendly. Therefore, the dispenser will be an excellent alternative for such popular oil cooking sprays!


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
