If you are passionate about cooking, then a gravy boat is something that you should own sooner rather than later. There’s something about just seeing a gravy boat that conjures up images of Thanksgiving dinners and sumptuous banquets with all your friends and relatives. You can use them for gravy, but also various other sauces to accompany your favorite dishes. Gravy boats come in many different styles and materials. You can find them in stainless-steel, or porcelain. There are simple ones that look decidedly modern, while others are much more elaborate and hearken back to the 1600s, when these sorts of “sauce boats,” as they were called, made their first appearances. As you’re trying to pick out your gravy boat, look at the style and see whether it matches the rest of your tableware. You should also get one that’s the right size to accommodate your needs.
