Roll-On Olive Oil Prevents Soggy Bread


This clever invention takes a cue from the roll-on glitter bottles of the 90’s and swaps the sparkles for olive oil. Created by design group Oaza, the Oil-On dispenser is made from a glass container topped with a hollow cork stopper that’s sealed with a rolling wooden ball. The ball soaks up the oil, then dispenses it evenly as you roll it across your bread.

Oil-On focuses on subtly — playing off the idea that we oh-too often overpower bread’s flavor and texture by dunking it in olive oil. The ballpoint pen-like dispenser enables us to get a thin layer of oil, as opposed to a piece of bread soaked in the stuff. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on this item, as the firm is still considering plans to move the unique dispenser into production.

‘Til then, we foresee Nutella roll-on bottles ahead. Goodness knows we need something to deter us from slathering ungodly amounts on our morning toast.

Now that’s a neat idea. Another one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” items.

That would be nice for when you’re grilling cheese sandwiches or any other type of sandwich so you don’t have to apply oil directly to the griddle or your Foreman grill. Just roll it right onto the bread instead.

But then that’s what cooking spray is for.

As for dunking bread in seasoned olive oil, that’s what you’re SUPPOSED to do. You couldn’t really add all the seasonings and chunks of dried peppers to the oil in the dispenser because it would probably block up the roller ball and that seasoning is what makes the oil taste good. That and I doubt many people are going to sit there rolling their bread with an oil-dispensing device before every single bite.

But I could be wrong.
