Took a chance, didn't quite work out!
on 16 August 2014
I wasn't sure these would be suitable for my needs (a bottle in which to mix, use and keep salad dressings for family use) but I took the chance because it wouldn't be a huge disaster financially if they weren't. Size-wise they're perfect (many I looked at were too big, whereas I only want something small like this). They're ok for some combinations of ingredients, but the holes at the top are way too small for anything bigger than a grain of course ground black pepper in a viscous liquid such as a salad dressing - add in crushed garlic and it just gets clogged!
I do still use them for dressings that have no garlic, and they do work for those, but I shall continue looking for something will work with salad dressings with bits in! Also, the red 'caps' are so small as to be pointless in terms of trying to remember where you left them! I have to admit to having taken them off when the bottles arrived, and then forgotten where I put them - I think someone threw them away!! But they're not really essential - however, again, I shall continue looking for a bottle of this size that comes with a cap attached with a plastic 'tie'.
The bottles do feel flimsy, and are thinner than I was expecting (compared to, say, similar sauce bottles you find in cafes) but I have to say they do wash well in the dishwasher, and that is certainly a plus.
All in all, I have gone right down the middle in terms of stars because they're sort of ok and sort of not for me - but they might be ok for you!
