I only came across a gravy boat with a warming stand like this one recently and my first thought was - waht a great idea. If there's one thing I love about winter (I live in Australia so we're entering winter right now) is the Sunday roast with lashings of delicious gravy.
This cool looking gravy boat serves a great purpose in style - what more could you ask for. Admitedly the candle under the gravy boat did make me think of 1970s fondues for just a moment, but the idea is still fantastic.
Apparently this glossy-white porcelain gravy boat will keep the gravy delicious piping hot - even for second helpings which means you should buy it!
The other great thing about winter is that I will often make apple pie for pudding on Sundays too - well I say pudding, but we generally let the roast settle for a bit so it's more like supper! Anyway apple pie goes really well with custard and you know what? You can also use this gravy boat to keep your custard lovely and warm, ideal to pour over your apple pie, apple crumble or whatever dessert rocks your boat1
I want one of these myself, but other ideas are to buy one for a housewarming gift or to give to newly weds etc. Just don't forget to give them a few tealight candles as well.
