Hi Team Nigella, could you please tell me where I can purchase the oil bottles Nigella uses on her TV show? She always has them on her counter near the stove. Thank you.

Nigella has quite a variety of bottles on her counter top but we suspect you may be referring to some ceramic bottles. These came from eBay. Unfortunately you may need to keep checking auction websites to find similar bottles, but also search under "oil dispensers" and "oil cruets" as quite often the bottles are put under this heading rather than just "bottle".
Emile Henry also makes ceramic oil and vinegar cruets which are similar and are usually available on-line in the US.
The oil bottles look nice and they also have some practical advantages. First as they are ceramic they keep the oil away from direct light which can cause the oil to deteriorate slightly more quickly. Second they come with useful metal pouring spounts which can make it easier to drizzle oil into a pan or over food.
