Neapolitan Pizza Maker’s “Oil Can”


Naples is, of course, the city where pizza was born – the art of Neapolitan pizza making has actually been protected by UNESCO since 2018. To practice their art, local pizzaiolos have long used copper cruets to store the extra virgin olive oil they need for their work.

With a thick handle and an extended spout, these oil jugs  which hold half a liter – give just the right amount of control to finish a pizza with a fine drizzle of fragrant oil. The vessel also protects the oil from direct exposure to light and from having its taste altered in any way.

The sturdy yet elegant jugs are hand-made in the workshop of an artisanal manufacturer located in Sant’Anastasia, a town near Naples famed for its copper work. This item ships directly from Naples.
