sleek & functional gravy boats
Gravy will undoubtedly be served with many a Christmas meal next week. Here are a few then and now options of sleek gravy boats that are equally beautiful and functional at a few price points. A gravy boat is something I’ve never had but always wanted, for not only serving gravy (which I rarely do) but also for other savoury or sweet sauces or syrups.
Thrifty: vintage stainless steel gravy boat, marked AS Stainless 18-8 Sweden | $1.99 | Salvation Army – Bracebridge ON, paired with a perfectly sized vintage two-handle stainless steel tray, marked Gense Stainless 18-8 Sweden | $2.99 US | Goodwill – Medina OH. Given my bent for mid century modern design, I was thrilled to find these pieces. I plan to rejuvenate the wooden handle of the boat with a bit of teak oil.
Affordable: stainless steel thermal gravy boat by Kuraidori | $19.99 – Home Hardware. Stylishly sleek and practically insulated.
Splurge: Nambe gravy boat | $125 | amazon.com. A unique design with reversed, elongated handle and organic shape.
