This porcelain gravy boat boasts one of the largest holding capacities at 18.5 ounces. If you’re using a ladle, you can rest it on the matching saucer. (By the way, using a ladle is a personal preference. Some prefer it, while others would rather pour directly from the boat.)
Why it made our list: “I love the upright shape. It feels traditional yet modern farmhouse,” says Steph.
