The oil bottle cap hides a secret function. 98% of people don’t know it, but it makes the job easier

Opening the oil is purgatory and pouring it out is an adventure. Just recently, my husband and I were discussing why they don’t make the oils so they pour better. Because if you pour oil on your kitchen floor, you will slide for another two weeks. You may have a similar experience with handling oil. But beware, imagine that the manufacturers have really thought about it. Unfortunately, hardly anyone knows about this gadget.

How to pour the oil more easily?

We will take it in order. You buy a new bottle of oil. Now unscrew the cap. And here comes the unpopular step. Insert your finger into the plastic grommet and tear off another cap. Can you do it, congratulate yourself and throw the unnecessary piece of plastic in the trash? This is exactly the mistake.

If you turn this same piece and put it back on the neck of the bottle, it will create a “funnel” from which you can pour the oil into the pan much better. You can find the video tutorial below under the article in the resources. Try it.

And now that you know how to properly open and pour the oil, let’s take a look at some other facts.

Myths about cooking oil

It is claimed that the oil is unhealthy. The truth is, too much of everything is harmful, but if you use it in reasonable quantities, it can actually be very beneficial for your body. It provides him with omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which we cannot do without.

Another myth is that it is always better to replace cooking oil with olive oil. Olive oil is suitable for seasoning, but you will use it for frying in vain. It has a low smoke point, so it burns at higher temperatures. Therefore, it is not recommended to try to use olive oil for everything.
