Oils, vinegar, etc. storage

The bottles can be found at Sunburst Bottle in all different sizes and shapes. Having them out in the open gives me other ideas while cooking.

Nice job, Jeekins. My olive oil is stored on a shelf near my cooktop in an old wine bottle with the same kind of spout you have on your bottles. All my other oils are stored in the pantry.

All my different vinegars are stored, corked, in old decorative wine bottles in a wine rack on a cabinet in the kitchen. I have about 7 bottles right now.

I have all that kind of stuff on a lazy susan so that I can cram more stuff into a small space.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

Hi there,

Your bottles look very cool!

But, isn't there an issue with storing oils where they're exposed to light. A chef friend suggested I store my oils in my fridge, away from heat and light.

Does anyone know the scoop here?

Yes, light speeds up the oxidation process which significantly shortens the life span of oils. They should be kept in a cool, dark place, in very dark or opaque, non-reactive containers.

The oils are refilled within 2 months. The larger containers are in a pantry.
