A good choice would be one with an airtight cap and tinted body as light and air oxidize olive oil. With that said, I don't use one. The oil I use has a drizzle restraint installed in the bottle.

Another vote for leaving it in the original packaging.

Years ago I used a liquor pourer inserted into an attractive wine bottle but IMO it more trouble than it was worth.

I have considered buying an olive oil mister to save on calories but I have a feeling that it would end up in the back of the cupboard.

I put the inexpensive supermarket olive oil in this dispenser from Bed Bath & Beyond. The expensive ones, as well as good balsamic vinegars, from the specialty store stay in their original bottles; I bought dispenser lids for them. The store offers $1 discount when you bring back a clean bottle to refill.

I keep my good (California Olive) oil in the original bottle. I reuse a green bottle with a drizzle restraint to hold my less expensive cooking olive oil, washing the whole shebang after it's been emptied almost always. On occasion, though, if I'm in a hurry, I'll just refill it as long as I'm pouring from the same larger can.

Pass on the mister. I've had two, a Misto sprayer and one from Pampered Chef. Neither of them cleaned out sufficiently, and both lost their ability to produce a fine mist rather quickly. Just drizzle a little oil on a small bit of paper towel and rub your pan.

I'm another that leaves it in the original container. Way back, when I tried a dispenser, no matter how well I cleaned it, the oil would get rancid. The only oil I use a dispenser for is the Asian sesame oil. Never had any of that Kadoya get rancid. Yet raw sesame is one of the fastest to go rancid, unless refrigerated.

I have a couple of these from Bed Bath and Beyond. I have canola oil in one, and Olive Oil in the other. I keep them by the cooktop.

If I could find a small dispenser, I probably would. My finishing EVOO pours a bit too quickly for my taste. It even has one of those plastic thingees in the opening that slow down the flow. For people who buy the gallon cans of EVOO, it makes sense to use a dispenser.

Empty wine bottles here with liquor spouts.
Blue bottle for EVOO.
Clear bottle for grape seed oil.

Right there at the ready. However, I do like the squirt bottle pictured above. Professional looking....lol
