Photo of the Day: Elephant Spout on Oil Bottle
I opened my new bottle of grapeseed oil bought from a Korean grocery store expecting a run-of-the-mill spout. but instead flicked open the cap to reveal a tube-like protrusion. My first thought was, "Damn, that's awesome!" But then I took a closer look and realized the tube was part of a larger design: an elephant's face. The spout was elevated from "awesome" to "BEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN (related to bottles of oil)."
But seriously, isn't that an awesome design? Is anyone else's mind totally blown? (Please say yes, or else I'll think I'm insane.) I've lost count of how many times I've poured oil out of a bottle with a too-large spout and cursed the spout for releasing more oil than I wanted, aside from not being an adequate drip catcher and making my fingers slippery. Since I've used this bottle, I haven't had any problems with excess oil use or undesirable drippage. If any oil manufacturers are reading this, get those elephant spouts on your bottles, stat!
