One Good Find: Olive Oil Taster
A beautifully shaped spout for drizzling the perfect amount of oil
Everyone at the SAVEUR office knows that I'm an olive oil freak—I use it almost daily on everything from salads to soups to steak. And I've been a fan of Alessi's stainless steel designs for years. So this item from the Italian company, designed by Marta Sansoni, was bound to strike my fancy. Called the fior d'olio, it's a bottle spout made to resemble an olive stem that makes drizzling finishing oils easy—letting you pour only the exact amount desired—that can also be used as a cover for the green resin tasting cup that's included. Whether you keep it in the kitchen or bring it to the table, the spout adds a stylish touch to your enjoyment of "green gold."
