What it could be ... if only
on June 18, 2016
I have owned this dispenser for about a year. Initially I was very excited to test it out. I had planned to use it for dispensing cooking oil. It has a simple but remarkable design. Sadly the execution leaves much to be desired.
The chief flaw IMO is the screw top. As many other reviewers have pointed out twisting the cover too hard makes it crack. The edge of the bottom ring of the cover does not align neatly with the glass bottle and moreover the plasticky material it is made from is flimsy. The reason why you turn it so hard is that there is a lot of give in the top.
The dispenser valve at the top of the cover functions beautifully. Any extra oil drops slide nicely back into the bottle. Now if the screw top worked properly life would be perfect. However because of its defect, oil tends to leak from under the cover along the sides of the bottle and creates a greasy mess.
I really wish the Trudeau company would give this dispenser bottle a second look and fix the screw top. Once they did that it would be the best thing out there.
