I’ve been buying most of my serveware in white in simple styles because it makes it easier to add new pieces I like from different collections that will go with what I already have. There are a lot of things I have unearthed that I don’t see on many tables, so I thought I would share a few of them with you here.

BIA Cordon Bleu 2-Quart Large Moses Serving Bowl, White

bowlI love the design of this bowl, and have purchased one as a gift. Its a 2 quart serving bowl made of glossy porcelain. Its modern design makes it perfect for keeping on the counter with fruit, or used for salads or chips, or at the table to serve warm foods. Microwave and dishwasher safe. Dimensions: 12.2 x 8.2 x 5 inches

gravy boatNorpro Porcelain Gravy Sauce Boat with Stand and Candle

Based on the idea of a butter warmer, this gravy boat has a candle under it to keep the gravy warm, great idea!  Two cup (16 ounce) capacity. White porcelain, dishwasher safe. Its nice that the gravy boat isn’t attached, so you can pass it around the table without the candle, and you can use it on its own for cold sauces or salad dressing too. This would make a great gift.

jugBormioli Rocco Frigoverre Jug with Hermetic Lid, 2-Liters (78 ounces)

I love the fact that this jug has a lid. It has no lead so is 100% recyclable; bpa free. Its dishwasher safe and shock resistant. Remove lid prior to pouring. It has a 78 ounce capacity, dimensions: 5.40″ h x 7.30″ w x 7.50″.

Mrs. Anderson’s Baking Better Butter Keeper

To use, simply place butter in bowl section, add ¼ cup cold water to the base, and insert bowl section into base. The water helps keep the butter fresh by forming a protective seal. Holds about a half cup of butter. Dishwasher safe. Great stocking stuffer.

Pancakes cook up easily and evenly every time. Great for Pizza or nachos too. Or chill it in the fridge to keep appetizers cold. Wipes clean with paper towel. 12-Inch by 15-Inch.

coffee dripperHario VDC-02W V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper, White

These coffee drippers are used as an alternative to a coffee press for a single serving cup of coffee, and are becoming quite popular. Brews one to three cups at a time. Very hands-on brewing, allowing you, the user, to control brewing time and temperature. Ceramic body is durable and helps prevent heat loss during the brewing cycle. These can be offered to guests for individual use, and would make a great stocking stuffer.  You just rinse the filter like you would with a cup of tea to warm the cup, dump it out, then put your coffee grounds in and pour a small amount of water over the grounds, wait for it to become saturated, then continue pouring water in very slowly, mostly in the middle, don’t wash down the sides. Uses Hario 02 100 Count Coffee Paper Filter.
