Tabletops Unlimited Porcelain Bread Basket {Giveaway} – CLOSED

I used to teach Home-Ec, right?  And one of the topics I taught was hospitality–how to treat your guests, how to eat at a 5-star restaurant, how to set the table, etc.  We focused a lot on table settings, and I loved stressing the importance of setting out your finest dishes when you are serving guests!  With two tornadoes in the house, our fine serveware is slowly disappearing into higher and higher shelves, but when company comes over, I pull out the good stuff!  You know, matching plates, real cups, and most recently, my beautiful new porcelain bread basket from Tabletops Unlimited!

I had the privilege of reviewing two beautiful porcelain bread baskets from Tabletops Unlimited!  Beautiful, beautiful!  The fantastic thing about high fired porcelain is that it can be a great hot or cold conductor.  You could preheat this basket in the oven and then pull it out with the rolls to keep them warm on the table.  You could also chill it in the freezer to keep fruit or treats cold.  They are resistant to thermal shock (so they won’t shatter with sudden temperature changes), and are quite durable!

I keep thinking about how this would be such a great wedding gift idea!  I imagine every young married couple would love such an intricate basket in their kitchen, or even as a trinket basket used for home decor.  Tabletops Unlimited sells these bread baskets here for $19.99!

And one lucky winner is going to win a set of their own porcelain bread baskets!

If you have been on a cruise recently, you probably know what I mean when I say, “chocolate melting cake”.  If you’re like us, and have tried for months and years to recreate that recipe without any luck, listen in!  We’ve found the perfect imitation recipe!  And I think the key difference in our success was cooking them in our new beautiful porcelain ramekins from HIC – Brands that Cook!

When my husband came home and I pulled these out of the box, he exclaimed, “molten lava cake?!”.  Haha, indeed, we have an ultimate favorite dessert around here, and HIC just made our dessert dreams come true.  Previously, we’ve made our lava cakes in giant muffin tins, but methinks it doesn’t create an even cooking medium like porcelain ramekins.  Previously, we’ve had to dump out our cakes unless we all want to huddle around the ugly muffin tin.  Not so cool when we have guests over for dessert.

These ramekins are just the ticket–they are just so pretty!  They are called Oven-to-Table Transitionals because, just like they say, they can go straight from the oven, to the table.  Aka, the cooking dish IS the serving dish, and the beautiful red high-fired scratch-free glaze makes it as lovely and appealing as the food inside.

These ramekins are top quality!  They are solid, sturdy, and have a good weight.  The glaze is excellently finished, and the textured sides are great for handling.  They washed up as nice as new, and didn’t leave any stains or residue.  There are no rough places or paint imperfections, and the paint is so deep and vibrant!

These work great in a broiler or oven, and are dishwasher safe!  You can purchase them on Amazon HERE.

I am always so impressed with all of Harold Import Company‘s products!  I’ve done several reviews for them, and every time, I am pleased, impressed, surprised, and excited to share my opinion.   They carry a number of brands in addition to their own, and their collection of kitchen equipment, tools, and supplies is quite impressive!  Go take a look at their other exciting products, and pick up some ramekins of your own!
