Sitting down to dinner can be a trying experience. No, I’m not talking about trying to feed the dog Aunt Bertha’s meatloaf on the sly, but rather trying to keep tableside arguments to a minimum. As they say, it’s best to avoid religion and politics while at the dinner table, but that doesn’t stop other arguments from breaking out. Like passing the damn gravy before it gets cold.
This Mini Sauce Boat Set can go a long way to alleviating dinnertime congestion by providing to each their own—their own gravy boat, that is. The set contains six pieces, each polished to an attractive finish. While the individual gravy boats may satisfy all eaters during the meal, unfortunately, they have nothing to say about whose turn it is to do the dishes. (Not to mention the five extra dishes!)

Wooden ships may float, but wooden spaceships? Maybe. But if you’re using this Flying Saucer Serving Bowl, you’re probably going to hope that it is too weighed down with delicious foods to get up and fly away. Depending on what you’re serving, that is. I’ll pass on the bowl of little green men, thank you very much.

It looks like a space-car part out of the Jetsons, or perhaps a board game from Star Trek, but this shiny contrivance is actually a five-piece coaster set. The Coaster Set with Rubber Base and Stand may take up a fair amount of room on your living room table (each coaster measures four inches), but it is sure to act as a conversation starter; consider it an icebreaker before breaking out the real ice. When the drinks finally do hit the table, the stainless-steel coasters along with the rubber bases will keep your table top neat and tidy and free of

Zombies may always in style, but this chef hat doesn’t contain any brains. Sorry. Well, unless you put them in yourself. In which case you might be a zombie. But if that were true, you would have no need to purchase this Revol Porcelain Chef Hat Server, because you can just go out and get your own—with brains still in it. However, chances are that if you are reading this, you are not a zombie, in which case it would be perfectly appropriate to pick up either the Large (with a 5.25-ounce capacity) version or the Mini (1.75-ounce capacity), and fill it with whatever your (hopefully beating) heart desires.

Of course you wouldn’t want to actually eat this cabbage, not because it is over a hundred years old, but because it is made from jadeite. The carved Jadeite Cabbage with Insects dates from the late Ch’ing Dynasty (1644-1911) and even features a locust and katydid on the leaves. While this awesome carving may not exactly blend into the vegetable drawer, it sure would look great sitting on the kitchen counter.

In the very near future, hams, turkeys and roasts across the land will be broiled, braised and baked to perfection. From oven to table, the wafting scent of dinner will cause family and friends to gather ‘round in eager excitement. And then you cut into it, ravaging the poor beast into disrespectful clumps. Enthusiastic smiles become replaced by disappointed grimaces. Don’t let your stunning table presentation fall into a meaty pile of disarray: the Victorinox Precise Slice Knife will help you clean up your slicing act.
The serrated knife features an adjustable guide to help you create perfect slices from 1-mm to 15-mm thick. Operating similar to a mechanical slicer, the offset guide directs the cutting edge all the way through the meat during the slicing action. Serve thick slices for the entrée and then just as easily cut some thinly sliced for sandwiches the next day. With neat and clean dinner presentation along with perfect leftovers, your guests may just never leave.
