About Banhoek Chilli Oil

Banhoek Chilli Oil is the brainchild of Stellenbosch local, Ken Kinsey-Quick. It was borne from a hunger for the subtle, chilli-infused oils that he enjoyed while living abroad in Paris. Together with his brother-in-law, Adi Meintjes, both took on the challenge of creating the perfect chilli oil. They realised that when chillies are mixed with olive oil, the taste of the olives gets in the way of the pure chilli flavour, and so chose to infuse their flavour in high-quality canola oil — so that it doesn't get in the way of the chilli taste. The result is a subtle chilli spice that enhances dishes without overpowering them.

Banhoek Chilli Oil won the Great Taste Award in 2019, hosted by The Guild of Fine Food.

There is no other chilli oil!

Item Reviewed: 250ml

Review by Ken K. on 12 February 2019

Wow. Trying to find a chilli oil that is not too hot is so difficult. Most have the actual chillies in the bottle which means it gets hotter as time marches on. Also the packaging is superb! Ideal gift as well if you are bored of taking a bottle of wine all the time.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I love cooking and trying out new recipes and experimenting with food and wine. I have just come across Bahnhoek Chili oil, so thought I would give it a try. I LOVE it, a must in any kitchen. The chilli is in perfect balance, not too hot but adds that zing and flavour to any meal.
Even my 2 teenagers love it.

Takes Every Meal to the Next Level

Review by Alecia P. on 17 February 2020

It is so difficult to find a product that adds that much needed "hot" undertones without changing the flavour of the food.

Banhoek Chilli Oil on the other hand enhances the flavour of food without taking away from it. The level of "hot" is just right so that you don't have to drench your food in oil to get get some of that wonderful chilli taste.

Really tasty.
Canola oil, not the healthiest though. Will look for alternate oil type on next chilli oil purchase. Only for health reasons, nothing to do with the taste.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Banhoek Chilli Oil

Item Reviewed: 250ml

Review by Louis C. on 20 June 2019

Verified Owner

The TV review on this item said it was very mild, with a nice chilli flavour. We have used this oil, and it is spicy and HOT!
Be careful how you apply it to your food.
