Nope. Olive oil usually comes in a pretty enough glass jar.

I'd like one, but it seems kind of unnecessary right now with the limited amount of entertaining I do at home.

I keep mine in an old barber's bottle. We use it so fast that it doesn't have time to go rancid.

I don't ... but I wish I did (though I agree with the other posters about the pictured container being an incorrect way to store oil). Luckily (unluckily?) my kitchen does not have a lot of natural light so I could get away with a pretty jar on the counter.

nope, olive oil should be stored in a dark cool place bc light destroys olive oil. so why have something pretty when you'll be storing it most of the time

My special container for my olive oil is a wine bottle with one of those bar pourers in place of the cap. Works for me!

I thought about getting one, but once I get in the store I see something else that I really want.

Cool bottle but I thought you weren't supposed to store oils open like that. It exposes the oil to the air and I think oxidizes which leads to it going rancid. I want that bottle though! :)

It's really more about having the oil handy, since I use it just about every time I cook. Since it's on the countertop, why not show it off to its best advantage?

Olive Oil is supposed to stay in a dark container. You never want to put it in something glass where light can get to it

Nope, but the bottle looks really cool 8)

I really like the glass shown above. Unfortunately I do not have the counter space to display it so my olive oil stays in the original container in the cabinet.

I love olive oil containers. I just got one from a local festival with a small spout. It's easier than trying to pour from a huge olive oil container. Plus, it's not good because it always pours more than you need.

I used to. Then my cat jumped up on the counter and knocked it over in the middle of the night, spilling olive oil all over my kitchen floor. Now it stays in the original bottle with the cap securely fastened.

I keep mine up in a cabinet because it's supposed to be kept out of the light...right? it's so expensive that even though i'd like to make it look pretty, that's not practical.

I'd like one with a really thin spout for pouring, but I've been too lazy to get one. oops!

I agree with Babychloe. After a food tour of the North End in Boston, I learned a ton about olive oil. It should not be put out where sunlight (part of the reason why it is in cans) or heat (as in near the stove) because it can go rancid. And rancid means the taste suffers. Here is a link I found that explains this: but I do love that bottle...wondering what else I could put in there...

I use a plastic squeeze bottles that I got from a kitchen supply store for 99 cents. Not pretty, but they do the job.
