TOP 500 REVIEWERon July 1, 2012
Attracted by the low price, I bought a dozen for various uses. As other reviewers have noted, these can leak, especially with thin liquids. The tops do not seal strongly, so excess pressure can make the top pop off. One other complaint is that these do not come with caps.

You can solve all of those problems easily and cheaply!

One application I use these for is dispensing premixed epoxy, which is thick stiff stuff! I can't afford to have the top pop off but I must squeeze hard to get the epoxy out. So, I wrap regular plumber's tape ( teflon sealing tape ) around the threads. Works beautifully!

Another application I use these for is dispensing controlled amounts of very thin shellac. The tape-trick fixes that problem too! No spills or leaks whatsoever.

Taping the threads with teflon tape is cheap, fast and solves two of those problems.

No cap? No problem!

I use regular stick-pins like those used on office cork-boards & maps. Stick 'em in the little hole and seat the plastic part all the way. That works for glue, latex paint, sauces.

If you must enlarge the hole (as I do for thick gooey epoxy) then I use toothpicks.

For some really large tip-holes, I just use a short length of 1/4" dowel sharpened to a point with a pencil sharpener!
Stick that in the hole for a good seal. Leave enough length so that it is easy to grab & pull out.

Finally, i also use these for some fancy syrups and sauces that must refrigerated. I make a viscous delicious raspberry sauce that is too good to waste. To prevent air from degrading the fresh raspberries too soon in the fridge, I tear off a 2" square of aluminum foil, squeeze the bottle till the remaining sauce is near the top ( evacuating excess air) then place the foil over the hole and screw on the top. Foil grabs the threads and seals very well. The bottle is squished into funny shapes, but with the foil in place the sauce stays good for weeks!

Also, the food-grade plastic these are made from is quite pliable, so you can freeze some sauces so long as they do not contain too much water and you leave room for expansion. As we all know, water expands when it freezes, but things like hollandaise sauce does freeze very well.

Even some watery sauces and water-based paints can be frozen so long as the bottle is not completely full. Leave a little room for expansion and DO NOT seal the top. The bottle may bulge, but it won't break. I have frozen gourmet sauces, hide-glues, wood finishes, liquor-mixers, syrups, flavorings, Easter Egg dyes... all with no problems.

These bottles have many uses, but the low-price guarantees they won't be perfect for every application. Cheap teflon tape, stick-pins, toothpicks, foil and sharpened dowels will help you adapt them for just about anything.

Hope that helps!

I bought these to hold some sauces and oil. Two of the bottles I got does not seal well and leaks. Pretty cheap bottles, ok for things like ketchup but not for liquids like Olive Oil or thinner liquids

Update 5/6/15- Still using these for dressings and sauces. They've held up extremely well. I have tossed them in the dishwasher on the top rack without any damage.

Original review-
I got these for easy access to sauces when I'm making my bento boxes. Now they are an essential part of making my lunch. I buy condiments in bulk, so using these is a lot easier than digging out a gallon of mayonnaise or soy sauce. Because they can squirt, I can make pretty designs on my food. I use one for mayo, one for soy sauce, and one for homemade salad dressing. If you need a bigger nozzle to squirt (I did for mayo), you can just snip it down with scissors. The plastic is soft enough to cut nice and evenly.

One thing that I would change about these is the cap and the opening the cap screws on. If it were bigger, sauces would be easier to put in. I had success using a mini spatula when I filled these with thicker things or with things that were in a jar/tub (as opposed to something you can pour).

The caps screw on pretty tight, so I don't know what the other reviewer was talking about when they said their oils leaked out. None of mine have leaked, and soy sauce is thinner than cooking oil.

I would repurchase! These make life easier; and for as cheap as they are, you can't go wrong.

These bottles are pretty much exactly what I expected. Cheap squeeze bottles suitable for art or cooking. The only problems are that if you squeeze too hard, you compromise the seal around the cap, and that they do not come with tip covers for storage.

Pretty basic. Not much could go wrong with this product. They are great for people who are into cooking. These bottles will help clean up the look of your kitchen.

I use mine for general use garage oil, and for filling my lamps with oil. I like how flexible they are. I haven't had a problem with the lids leaking.

The tops don't screw on straight and they don't have an O-ring so they leak every time I turn it over to squeeze the contents out.

these are great for all condiments. Even better for ones you create and want to store and dispense with ease. I use it for Olive oil and for platting meals with additional sauces

I really like the bottles but eventually the bottle does begin to leak out from under the lid. This is the best bottle I've found to put my homemade chocolate syrup in. I don't regret the purchase but it would be nice to not have the leak.

Product description says it is tapered so you can cut to desired opening. This was not the case for my order, my lids came precut. The opening was too large for my use.
