About this Item

A favorite of French chefs, this bottle can be found in most homes in France, and is pretty enough for the table as well.

It is designed for those who buy high-quality olive oil by the can, and need something smaller and more decorative for the kitchen. Aesthetics aside, it has perfect functionality built in: its size and slender proportions make it easier to hold and pour with just one hand; the cork seal stays tight, and the steel spigot makes it easier to direct a stream of oil and easier to control the amount being poured. In addition, the porcelain will not alter the flavor of your oil, and will prevent sunlight from deteriorating the contents.

Capacity: 8.75 oz

Colors: Creamy White, or London Yellow, with painted olive motif on molded porcelain.

 

Features:

• the porcelain is fired at a high temperature for strength, durability, whiteness and shock-resistance.
• the non-porous porcelain stays bacteria-free and is oven, microwave, dishwasher and freezer-safe.
• made with an environmentally-friendly manufacturing process from their own clay, recycling heat, wind, water and power.

Revol Products

There is no question why we love Revol products. It is a company that was founded in 1789 in Rhone Valley, France and is still operated by the same family for 11 generations - talk about family tradition!!  Here’s how it all began:

A WALK WITH DESTINY... FROM EARTHENWARE TO PORCELAIN
On a Sunday walk after a series of violent storms, two brothers, Joseph-Marie and François Revol, noticed some unusual white streaks. For these specialists, there was no doubt they had found a deposit of kaolin. The region was already producing the red sandstone used by potters and tile makers. The Revol brothers' discovery led to the manufacture of much harder-wearing white stoneware and to the establishment of the REVOL factory in Ponsas, later transferred to Saint-Uze. There followed a succession of stoneware and “terre d'acier” pottery. A few years later, the REVOL factory developed a non-porous formula that could be enameled in various colors, which went on to become the benchmark of fine porcelain.
