Sorry for another Costco deal starting on Monday for 2 weeks (or whilsts stock last). Please don't vote cold just because you're not a member. Non members can accompany a member and the membership criteria to join is quite broad. If dissatisfied Costco claims it will refund your membership at any point during the year- not tried this out myself. But i can't fault its customer service.

This is a great deal for the large 5l bottle working out at £3.40 a litre which is even cheaper than most supermarket's own brands. Most supermarkets are stocking the 750ml bottle for around £6. (mysupermarket.co.uk/sai…tml)

5 Litre bottle £27.69 at Amazon (amazon.co.uk/d/O…JDU)

Yes it is a large bottle but the oil doesn't go off. Just pour it into smaller size borttles. I've just finished the last of the ones i got back in 2017 (from Costco) so the timing is perfect. Offer on for 2 weeks from Monday.

For those voting this deal cold can they please explain where they can get extra virgin olive oil cheaper?
Olive oil has an open shelf life of 6 months, at the absolute maximum, ideally 2 months. That's stored in ideal conditions.

If you're going to buy in this kind of bulk, make sure you'll use it. Rancid olive oil will make you super ill.

It's a good price though, so hot nonetheless.

It's not a particularly good price, Lidl/Aldi and others do extra virgin olive oil for under £3 a litre and you don't have to buy massive quantity.

Yes this is a FAB deal, has got it before. @Cheapasnowt any idea if it will be available online for home delivery too? As it was last time.
Disgusting, Berio oil. Bitter and just nasty.

Not true at all. It is true that the sweeter the olive oil, the shorter the shelf life. The olives oils with high polyphenol content that have a bitterness and a kick to then can last much longer, up to a couple of years if stored correctly.

I never had this brand in high regard. Cheap oil and you really do get what you pay for. A decent olive oil would cost double this. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a mixed with a cheaper oil or old olive oil mixed with some current season olive oil to freshen it up. I'd stay away.
This is good for cooking (frying) and at 3.4 £/L is a bargain considering it is of a decent quality. For cold anti-pasti use you would normally go for a better quality olive oil, Carapelli Bio for instance.

Not hot.

i took my member to Costco as instructed and showed it at the front desk, and they threatened to call the police.

Certainly a risky rigmarole just to get olive oil. Although I did notice they sold inflatable spa too. Gives me an idea...

Why would you use Extra virgin olive oil for frying? Even ignoring the arguments on whether it is good for you doing this or not, it has a very dominant flavour (which you want for some dishes but not for everything) and high cost.

LOL you have been stuck by the curse of the Costco deal, where sour grapes is the order of the day. If they cannot get in because they are too mean to pay for a card & reap the benefits or ineligible they vote cold. They can't get it cheaper but if they can't have it then no one can !

I thought that would be obvious to most. You can pop into a local supermarket and buy extra virgin olive oil in smaller quantities at a better price per litre than this. It has also been stated that this isn't a great brand.
No one has suggested it is a bad deal because it is Costco.
Your comment is utter nonsense.

You have no proof that it wasn't because of Costco, and this happens on every deal which is listed for Costco, therefore on the bases they can't all be bad deals it has to be due to the wholesale nature of their business.

If you believe you can pop into a local supermarket and buy Extra virgin Olive oil for less than £3.40 a litre then why not tell us where this amazing price can be found?

Tesco's own Brand £3.60
Sainsburys own brand £3.60

Not quite true though because the Italian Extra Virgin oil at Lidl is in fact £5.98 for 1L and we do have to compare like with like

Both versions from Aldi & Lidl are Spanish olive oil which is not rated as highly as the Italian one.

Here is the review from Good housekeeping which rated Berrio as the number one best in their own blind tests:

It's a little like putting up a bottle of branded vintage champagne and you coming along and saying it's a poor deal because you can buy Babycham cheaper !

Utter tripe. This Filippo Berio oil uses olives from all over the world, not just Italy. Good Housekeeping isn't a valid reference, companies pay to get recommended. There are plenty of proper reviews that say Lidl and Aldi are among the best.
I've had enough of this, have a good day.

It is a matter of taste l guess and it depends what you are used to eating, as, l like the dominant flavour you are referring too. Smoke point is not an issue with this oil as this is not a very high quality unrefined evoo. You will easily get away with medium temperature cooking / frying. I don’t on the other hand use high quality unrefined olive oil for frying as it is not suitable.

You will easily "get away" with oil sodden food by frying at medium temperature too. Still, there's no accounting for taste.
I used to think one should never use olive oil, let alone extra virgin for frying. Then I watched the whole Gordon Ramsey Ultimate Cookery Course (18 episodes I believe it was), and he was always frying with olive oil.
Olive oil is one of the safest products for frying. Lard is best. LINK
