I have fried with the oil, marinated with the other ingredients, barbecued, braised, and baked with it. oo'mämē has transformed my kitchen. My family says they feel like they're in a restaurant. I'd go on more but I've got to go cook dinner.

There was left over pasta in my fridge when I got home last night and I made two bowls of “peanut sauce pasta.” One Chinese and one Mexican. It was the simplest and most delicious thing I have made in a long while with only 3 things. Then I mixed it with some plain hummus and boom – really, really great addition to many dishes.

— Brett Tintera, Two Men and a Garden

The Chinese Chile Crisp is truly a unique product! Better than Sriracha, Sambal, and Hoisin combined. oo'mämē is my new secret ingredient as it elevates my simple, everyday dishes to another dimension!

I put this stuff on everything I eat!

The Mexican oo'mämē is a condiment of wonder. Every taste offers up a little mystery to compliment whatever I put it on. A little spicy, a little sweet, a little nutty, and a little something I can't name. I endeavor to use it in as many dishes as I possibly can.

— Rashda Buttar

Best New Condiment! Oo'mämē adds so much flavor to my basic everyday meals. I love the extra kick it gives. Makes cooking fast and easy!
