 Sauce Boat,

Gravy Boat or

Saucière

A gravy boat,sauce boat or Saucière is a type of pitcher or elongated dish designed for the purpose of serving gravy or sauces and any other liquid.. They are very decorative with their long slender shapes, curled handles and thin spout. These are not used nearly as much as they used to be which is unfortunate since they are quite handy still. They are often seen on the table during the holiday season, when cooks make gravy to accompany turkey, goose, mashed potatoes, and other traditional winter dishes. Gravy boats range from the simple to the lavishly decorated, and they can be made in a wide variety of materials to coordinate with an assortment of service sets. Many families include a gravy boat with other pieces of heirloom china and silver, passing it down from generation to generation.

The gravy boat is somewhat unique in the crockery world, because it is designed for a very specific purpose and ill-suited to others. Most people have a gravy boat languishing in their cupboards waiting for its moment of glory, although in the past, the gravy boat was set out more frequently, especially in the Southern United States, where gravy is a common accompaniment to the evening meal. Some old fashioned diners and restaurants in that part of the United States still offer a gravy boat with certain meals.

Most gravy boats are made from clay or china and shaped like long, deep dishes with a handle at one end and a spout at the other. These gravy boats also usually have an accompanying bottom plate to collect spilled gravy, although some versions are a solid cast, instead of having two parts. Some gravy boats have a two handled design and are meant to hold a gravy spoon or ladle, while others are shaped like small upright jugs from which the gravy can be poured. Silver companies may cast gravy boats to accompany complete service sets, although these are rare.

The gravy boat is usually brought out with the meat course, because gravy is traditionally made with the pourings from the turkey, goose, lamb, or other meat that has been prepared. Like other small condiment dishes, the gravy boat is often passed around the table, although at formal dinners, a waiter may carry the gravy boat from diner to diner, in which case a ladle design is typically used.
