    How does this compare to the 3l?

      It's 1/4 the amount.

        1/4th the price? I'd rather get a few of these than 1 big 3L bottle.

          Same, better to buy frequently and fresh smaller bottles.

          same olive oil go rancid very quickly

          3L come in cans.

          I bought some extra virgin oil from an olive farm. They told me that best practice with the cans is to leave the oil in the can until you're about half way through, then decant into old wine bottles- the darker the better. Is this better than buying small bottles? I haven't done a controlled study.

          @AlbyDuck:

          I bought a couple of bottles of olive oil (specifically to keep and reuse their dark bottles) and one of the large cans. I used the bottles first, replaced their lids with speed pourers and have been refilling them from cans ever since. Does the job.

      The 3 litre tin is showing as "unavailable" at Coles, but is $25 at Woolworths, so this price is good and the bottle is easier to handle.

      The tin doesn't come in all the varieties.

      Thanks for the responses… I was just trying to find out which one comes out cheaper. As someone who goes through 3L every couple of months, I'll go for the 3L as it's marginally cheaper. I also don't need any bottles/nozzle etc as I have my own and simply refill. Good deal though for those with lower consumption.

    Best olive oil.

    I've always purchased the ALDI one due to its always low price. I assume this one is just as good if not better?

    One of the purest olive oils available in Australia. The colour is amazing!

    Australia now produces some top notch Olive oil - including Cobram estate and the Aldi brand. Check the label of the olive oil you buy to make sure its Australian Extra Virgin Certified, compliant with standard AS 5264-2011 - oils that comply with this standard have undergone some pretty stringent testing so you can be sure you're not getting lamp oil with a bit of green colouring (like many imported olive oils).

      Costco also has top quality Olive Oil, as confirmed by independent tests. When I had Costco membership I'd buy it regularly, and Cobram when on special. I didn't know about Aldi - will give it a try.

      Cobram and Aldi are produced by the same company.

      Check the label of the olive oil you buy to make sure its Australian Extra Virgin Certified,

      I would only ever date certified extra virgins.

    Bought two of these yesterday, great price.

    Big packs of Sultana Bran are also 50% off if that's your thing.

    the pouring tip in this bottle is awesome

    • -1 vote

      I beg to differ. I find the pouring tip from New Zealand, Grove avocado oil to be the best so far. Much less messy all around.

    •  

      It is, plus the bottle is tinted so oil is less affected by light.

  •  

    Have any of you tried the espanola brand available at Coles / woolies? It makes every other brand including the Australian ones taste like water…

    Is it near expiry date at all?

    I buy the Woolworths Dollevi 4L when it is priced at $20. Isn't that better?

    • +1 vote

      Imported - quality uncertain. Also transport time means more likely to be rancid.

    I've already did the bonky, not sure if this Extra Virgin deal applies to me.
    Maybe it should have the label [Targeted] ?
