Can Olive Oil Be Refrigerated?

Disadvantages of refrigerating olive oil

The most noticeable drawback of chilled olive oil is that it congeals into a thick, turgid substance. The oil is unsuitable for meals like salads in this crystallized state because it won’t drip.

Olive oil is a liquid at room temperature, which is seldom as warm as the human mouth in most countries. This means when frozen olive oil enters a human’s mouth, it is bound to warm up and turns into liquid. Unfortunately, the warming process is uneven and can result in an unpleasant taste and, most likely, an unhappy culinary experience.

Many studies strongly suggest that repeatedly removing and returning olive oil to a refrigerator stresses the oil and shortens its shelf life. This is due to repeated oxidation (when oxygen in the air mixes with fatty molecules, causing the oil to lose its cohesion, consistency, and flavor).

Since using it congealed isn’t preferred, a final disadvantage of refrigerating olive oil is that you must wait for the oil to warm up. No one wants to wait around for their olive oil to warm up.

How to properly store olive oil

With refrigerating your olive oil not an option, what’s the best way to store olive oil? We’ve got a few recommendations…

  • To help prevent spoilage, we recommend storing your olive oil where it’s dark and in a well-sealed container. Olive oil and oxygen don’trow of olive oils - Olive Oil Pour Spouts Can Olive Oil Be Refrigerated? mix well together. On top of that, a poorly sealed container could potentially allow for bugs and other unwanted substances to get into your olive oil.
  • Store olive oil where it is dry, along with air, moisture is the oil’s worst enemy. As water hydrolyses its fatty molecules, turning them into horrid-looking clumps of goop that neither you nor any dinner companions would willingly eat.

In brief, store olive oil in a cold, dry cupboard in a sealed container. For best results, we recommend using a pour spout to seal the container, especially one with a separate intake for air and a flap to keep the tap closed when oil isn’t pouring out of it.

Refrigerating olive oil myth

There is a persistent rumor that refrigerating olive oil will help you tell whether you have authentic olive oil. This in fact isn’t true.

Manufacturers of genuine olive oil produce liquids with different chemical compositions. Each composition acts differently when refrigerated. Thus, there isn’t a way to use refrigeration to distinguish that quality of olive oil.

In short, should you refrigerate olive oil?

While it’s completely up to you, we highly recommend not refrigerating your olive oil. When stored in fridge-cold temperatures, olive oil forms crystals and turns solid. In this hardened state, olive oil is difficult to pour out of an open-topped container and even impossible to use out of a pour spout.

How do you know if olive oil has gone bad?

Can olive oil go bad?

Most oils don’t go bad. They have stable fats which do not easily suffer from exposure to oxygen or moisture. However, the fatty bits that make up olive oil are sensitive to oxygen and dampness, so the short answer is, “Yes. Olive oil can–and does–go bad.”

How do you know if olive oil has gone bad?

The most sure way to tell if olive oil has gone bad is to eat some and see if you end up spending an unpleasant amount of time in the bathroom. We’re kidding! Kind of…

The taste test

Olive Oil Pour Spouts - olive oil in clear bottlesIt is important to note that rancid olive oil tastes bitter–exactly the same as good, fresh, unspoiled, extra-virgin oil. This means that taste alone is not suitable for proving that olive oil has gone bad.

Instead of noticing if your olive oil tastes bitter, seek to notice a change in the oil’s taste. If the oil tastes the same as when you first bought it, then you are probably alright. However, if the oil tastes different, then it has gone off.

Note: unlike other types of cooking oil, it is super important to pay attention to the “use by” date on olive oil bottles. If your olive oil tastes more bitter than it did and is past its “use by” date, then we’d advise you to throw it away.

The smell test

There is a certain smell that rancid olive oil gives off. Most people often compare it to paint because there’s something “chemical” about it. Fair enough to say that if your olive oil smells like paint, don’t use it.

The “use by” date test

Pay attention to this. Maybe stretch it out for a few weeks, but be very aware of any sudden changes to your olive oil’s taste, smell, or looks once it is outside the manufacturer’s usable period.

A simple and effective way to protect olive oil from going bad early

Apart from its other advantages (such as helping to regulate the amount of olive oil you pour and preventing accidental spills), using a good pour spout seals your olive oil bottle, blocking bacteria, air, and moisture. Find an excellent, reasonably-priced olive oil pour spout here.

How Do You Clean an Olive Oil Pour Spout?

With each pour of your olive oil, the spout develops a layer of oil that catches debris in the air. Eventually, you’ll need to clean it off to keep your olive oil clean and contaminant-free use after use. Thankfully, you can clean all your olive oil pour spouts quite easily by following these steps.

Get Your Cleaning Supplies Ready

You cannot simply rinse the olive oil pour spout and call it good. The oil sticks fast to the metal spout, requiring the use of soap, scrubbing brushes, and plenty of elbow grease. To make quick work of the process, you’ll want to get a tiny straw scrubbing brush plus a regular dishwashing sponge. On top of that, grab your favorite grease-fighting dish soap.

Use Hot Water for a Quick Rinse

water faucet water running - Olive Oil Pour Spouts How Do You Clean An Olive Oil Pour Spout?

With your supplies by the sink, turn on the water to get it nice and hot. Then, take the olive oil pour spout off the bottle and rinse it under the running water. Keep moving the spout under the water until you cannot get any more oil or debris off the surface. Repeat with all the pour spouts you want to wash at that time.

Soak the Olive Oil Pour Spouts

Fill up the sink with hot water and a few drops of dish soap. Consider adding a ¼ cup of white vinegar as well if you think the pour spouts have stubborn stains. Put your spouts in the sink full of hot, soapy water and let them soak. You can leave them to soak for about an hour before coming back to assess their progress.

Scrub the Spouts with a Straw Brush

Working one by one, use a tiny scrubbing brush to clean each olive oil pour spout inside and out. Remember to move the weighted flap open and close to scrub around its moving parts. Don’t forget to scrub around the threads on the plastic corks to get all the oil off their surfaces as well. Use a regular kitchen sponge to wipe down all the exterior surfaces even more. Dunk the spouts back into the water to take a look at their surfaces once again.

Check the Cleanliness Level of the Spouts

Inspect the pour spouts thoroughly after scrubbing. If you’re satisfied with their state of cleanliness, rinse them with hot water. Youpouring olive oil into pan - Olive Oil Pour Spouts How Do You Clean An Olive Oil Pour Spout? may need to empty all the soapy water out of the sink, and then fill it with clean hot water. Let the spouts soak for a few minutes to get all the soap out of their crevices. If any soap residue remains, you’ll taste it in your olive oil, likely ruining the whole bottle.

Try Different Cleaning Methods

If the pour spouts do not look clean at this point, then you may need to let them soak longer and scrub again, for starters. But if that doesn’t work, you can fill an empty bottle with 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Then, put the still dirty olive oil pour spout on top. Cover the spout opening with your finger or a rag. Shake the bottle vigorously to agitate the vinegar through every part of the spout. Then, clean it in hot, soapy water and rinse it thoroughly.

Let the Spouts Air Dry Completely

Before putting your olive oil pour spouts back on the bottles, let them air dry completely on a dish drying rack or towel. Check the spouts carefully for any drops of water before reinstalling. Otherwise, the water could get into the oil and contaminate it.

Olive Oil Pasta Sauce Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious meal that can help you feed a crowd? If so, then you have probably thought about making pasta. Pasta is a great option because it is relatively inexpensive, can be prepared in bulk, and is appealing to most people. Furthermore, if you have someone with food allergies, you can find gluten-free pasta available as well! Even though you should think about the quality of the pasta you buy, you also need to think about the sauce, as this is what really makes the recipe. Fortunately, we have put together an easy recipe that everyone will love! Take a look at the recipe below, and get ready to wow your family members and friends!


To make this recipe, you will need:

  • Approximately 1 lb of dry spaghetti for every three to four people
  • A half-cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 to 6 garlic cloves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • Fresh parsley as garnish
  • 1 to 2 tbsp of fresh basil, chopped
  • One tbsp of fresh mint leaves

The Steps

After you have all of the ingredients, the steps you need to follow include:

  1. Start by pouring 6 quarts of water into a large pot. Add some salt to the water to get it to boil faster.
  2. Once the water is boiling, add the pasta. You should cook the pasta until it is al dente. The exact cooking time will vary depending on the type of pasta you use. Some pasta will become al dente in as little as seven minutes, while other types of pasta could take ten minutes or more.
  3. When you drain the pasta, reserve approximately two tbsp of the pasta water. This is going to act as the base for the sauce.
  4. After you have drained the pasta, do not rinse it with water. You need the pasta to retain its natural starches.fresh basil in pot - Olive Oil Pour Spouts Wholesale
  5. Set the pasta to the side and get ready to cook the sauce. Start by heating the olive oil in a large pan. Use medium heat.
  6. Once the olive oil is rolling around the pan, add the garlic and sauté it until it becomes fragrant. The garlic should turn a light brown color. Take extra care not to burn the garlic, or it will become bitter.
  7. Once the garlic is fragrant, go ahead and set it to the side. Add red pepper flakes to the pan, which should still have the olive oil in it. Sauté the red pepper flakes for approximately one minute.
  8. The oil should have a nice flavor now. After you have sautéed the red pepper flakes, take the pasta and add it back to the pan. Toss it in the oil gently to coat the pasta thoroughly. Now, go ahead and add in the reserve pasta water that you set aside earlier. It should create a nice sauce.
  9. Stir the pasta in the sauce for approximately one minute. Then, turn off the heat and remove the pan from the burner. Add the herbs to the pasta including basil, mint, and garlic. You can also top the pasta with salt and pepper to taste.

Once you are finished, serve the pasta as quickly as possible to prevent it from getting tough.

The Tricks To a Delicious Pasta Sauce

This is a relatively easy recipe to follow, but there are a few tips and tricks you can follow if you want to make your pasta sauce taste even better. These include:
After you are done cooking the pasta, do not rinse it. You do not want to deprive the pasta of its natural starches. If you rinse the pasta after you drain it, it will not stick to the sauce. Therefore, allow the pasta to keep its starches if you want the sauce to taste delicious.

You can save time during the measuring process if you use an olive oil spout or an olive oil pourer to make the measuring process easier. They will give you a nice smooth pour, and you won’t have to worry about using too much or too little.

When you add your olive oil to the pan, try to keep it on medium heat. That way, you will not burn it.

You can also use your olive oil spout or olive oil pourer to top the pasta once you’re done cooking. It will really give the recipe a nice smooth finish.
