If you’ve got a restaurant, you probably deal with a lot of oil. Between changing the oil in fryers, making dressings and sauces, and cooking on the line, the only person moving more oil in the neighborhood is the local mechanic. And, like any restaurateur, you probably buy the stuff in bulk containers so that it’s a little easier to handle and a little cheaper to buy. And we all know how annoying those bulk containers can be to handle. They’re, well, bulky.
The Smart Spout is exactly what it sounds like: a smart idea that makes a restaurateur’s daily life a little easier. It’s simple, functional, and easy to use. What does the smart spout do? It allows you to pour bulk fryer or vegetable oil easily without spilling. Simple as that. Anyone who has stepped on oil on the floor in a commercial kitchen can attest to the dangers even a small spill can create.
The Smart Spout fits 1, 17.5, and 35 gallon bulk oil containers. It swivels so that oil can pour freely in any direction. It comes in red and green so you can tell fryer oil from ingredient oil. It’s washable, sealable, and reusable.
The Smart Spout reminds me of old gasoline cans. 20 years ago they had a screw cap and that was it. Then somebody got smart and invented a pour spout so you didn’t spill gas everywhere, which is both costly and dangerous. Now every Jerry-can in the world has a spout.
I don’t know if every bulk vegetable oil container in the world will have a spout one day, but they should, for the very same reasons every gas can now has one. If you deal with those bulk oil containers, make your life a little easier.
