All well-laid tables need a cruet set, with salt and pepper shakers and oil and vinegar dispensers. If you eat a lot of salads, cruet sets also come in handy as you can store mayonaise and vinaigrette in the creuts instead, allowing you to dress your salad quickly at the table.
Here are the best cruet sets available:
Cuisinox Cruet Set
In this set you get two glass shakers and two glass bottles, all held within a chrome cruet stand.
The spouts of the bottles are drip-proof stainless steel, and the lids of the shakers are also made of stainless steel.
Each bottle holds 6 ounces (175 ml). Please note that you need to hand wash the bottles and shakers.
Prepara Cruet Set
You get two five ounce glass bottles, with drip-free plastic spouts.
The bottles have a built-in filter, so you can fill it with infused oils, but the filter will ensure that the spout doesn’t get clogged.
The stand is made from plastic with a chrome handle, and has a non-slip foot. The bottles can be washed in a dishwasher.
Four Piece Cruet Set
In this set you get two 6 ounce square glass bottles and two 2 ounce square glass shakers.
The caddy and the tops of the bottles and shakers are made from stainless steel. They are inexpensive, but do a good job.
