What is a cruet?
Cruets are small containers that most often hold oil or vinegar. They can also be used for holding salt or syrup. While these sometimes have a glass or cork stopper for a top, they most often have a stainless steel dispensing top.
What size sauce cup do I need?
The average size for a sauce cup is 2 ounces. This size is ideal for things like ketchup, butter, or sour cream that usually aren't needed in large amounts. If you are serving things like salsa or salad dressing, you may want to invest in a sauce cup that can hold at least 4 ounces. Keeping the size of the sauce cup close to the actual amount of items you want to serve will help prevent servers from overfilling the cups and help keep your costs in check by preventing wasted product.
What are the benefits of using a wine decanter?
Pouring wine from the bottle into a wine decanter aerates the wine and keeps any settled sediment out of the wine that is to be served. Aerating a wine means exposing more of the liquid to oxygen, which can help open up the aromas and flavors. Older vintages generally benefit the most from decanting.
