Common Questions About Salad Dressing Bottles
Why do I need dressing bottles?
These bottles give creative chefs a place to store and serve their house-made salad dressings. Operators can also use extra bottles to portion out commercial salad dressings for dispensing either in the kitchen or at the table. Table-side salad dressing bottles give customers control over the quantity and positioning of their dressing, which could be beneficial to some establishments. Others might prefer holding the dressing in the kitchen and distributing it as the dish is prepared – this option could need dressing servers for easier dispensing if, for example, the dressing is purchased in large quantities and comes in unwieldy containers. These different needs can be met by different bottle styles, which we'll go over below.
Which style of salad dressing bottle do I need?
The style of bottle you need depends on your intended application. If you want to provide each table with a serving bottle of your homemade salad dressing, you'll want containers that match the rest of your establishment's décor. KaTom carries a wide variety of dispensers to help you meet this goal. If the salad dressing you're serving is attractive and colorful, consider getting clear, clouded, or glass bottles to show it off.
On the other hand, if you just need bottles to hold your dressing before plating it, the aesthetics aren't as important. Simple plastic servers are cheaper than decorative ones, and if customers won't be seeing them, they will work just as well. Clear bottles enable operators to see how much dressing is left and refill them when necessary, while opaque options can provide specialized decoration. Other stylized options include items such as salad dressing jars, which fit quite well with rustic or farm-to-table themes.
What pieces are included with dressing servers?
Some of our offerings are sold as sets, ensuring every table in your establishment has matching bottles. These sets can include varying options, so you can change up the spouts, for example. Before purchasing a set, consult the product specifications page for each item so you can know for certain what you'll be getting. Additional options enable operators to use their bottles for other purposes, such as serving juice, syrup, or other liquids.
