I never thought that I would find a replacement stopper for my Alessi Oil and Vinegar set. The set was a gift more than 20 years ago, or shall I say 30! The one stopper had broken.... view more Now I am set for another 20 or more years, because I bought two of the stoppers at a great price! Thank you! view less
Q: I've got the REPLACEMENT DRIP STOPPER FOR 5074/AO OIL OR VINEGAR BY ETTORE SOTTSASS FOR ALESSI and notice that the flat edge around the tip isn't the same width all round. I wonder if it matters which way it goes in - should the wider edge face down when pouring, or up?
A: It should not matter as long as air is able to get in there and a vacuum is not formed. My guess is wide edge down but you may have more control with the narrow one. I like a lot of olive oil... I would try it out both ways. Since it is a cylinder you can rotate it.
