By now, you've come to understand our little contribution to being environmentally conscious with our refillable bottles and refill packs. One item that we've received a few questions on is exactly how to refill a bottle that has a pour top.
The refill pack nozzle is exactly the correct size to fit into the bottle top without the pourer. So, there are two ways to refill: with the pourer in the bottle or without it.
If you have a small size funnel, we recommend using it to fill the bottle. They are pretty inexpensive at a homeware or kitchen store and we now offer an option to purchase one for $4
when purchasing a refill pouch. The bottle can also be easily filled by removing the pourer. The top will come out with a little elbow grease. Use a dull butter knife or a spoon to wedge in between the pourer and the bottle. Just pry the pour top until you get a little gap. Then you can use a dry towel and twist the pour top out. A paper towel works well.
If you are planning on washing the inside of the bottle before refilling, be sure it is completely dry before adding any oil--even a little water can degrade the quality of the olive oil. See our post on Caring for a Stoneware Bottle
for more information.
