A good olive oil can
« on: November 07, 2010, 01:01:49 PM »
I'd like to order an good oil can like Domenico is using at the 1:00 mark in this video...

youtube***dot***com/watch?v=eNKeF5gNh1E

Does anyone have a good place online to order items like this?  Amazon was rather bare.

Also, I have heard some people say that one should not place olive oil in brass or copper due to a toxic reaction.  Does anyone know about this potential risk?

Thanks in advance!

davidcwilliams,

The complete YouTube link is

.

On the matter of oil cans (olieras), you might get some ideas from the thread at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,10922.msg97806.html#msg97806 and also from a series of posts starting at Reply 40 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,8248.msg77399.html#msg77399.

I think I've found my source.  Can anyone make a guess as to what size (2 Pint or 3 Pint) he is using in the video?

Were you able to find a source in North America?  My only source is in Naples.  You would be best off with 1/2 or 3/4 litre.

Matt,

I'm not sure of quality, but it looks like with shipping it's a little over $50 out the door.

I'm guessing they're based in Italy.

Why is a larger cruet better?

David,
I was lucky enough to find what I was looking for and I am planning to inquire about importing what I found for you  Matt and others. Hold on before ordering.  I do have that cruet I am willing to part very cheap, for a fellow Pizza making.com member here is the new and 1 you found I will sell to any mwember for $20 !

That's the same one that John has for sale.  You're much better off buying his.  Larger is better for the simple fact that you don't have to keep refilling it.

Gotcha... and why would I be better off buying his used one?  Much less expensive?
