Turning the Tables

No, you're not imagining things. Those goblets of red and white wine that appear to be standing on their heads are actually clever cruets for holding olive oil and vinegar. Pour the liquids through the delicate stems to dress your salad, and cap them off with their glass base. The set of two includes a funnel for easy filling, and a brush for cleaning. Made in China.

              Very easy to use; I was given one as a gift from Amsterdam and had a hard time
              finding a place in the states, until I found uncommon goods! Bravo! for carrying such unique and functional item.
              Cleans like a dream, great conversation piece at the dinner table.
              Every one wants one!

                  Comments about MING CRUETS:

                  These neatly designed cruets did indeed make a nice discussion item at my dinner party. But they're also functional, and besides they're beautiful beyond the initial shock effect.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Hyper fast international delivery. The international shipping cost was more than the price of the product, though. This made me think twice before purchasing - but eventually I did, and am happy about it.

                      These cruets are super cute and are a great way to store and display oil and vinegar. The "stem" necks are narrow, but they come with a funnel and a thin bottle cleaner.

                        I got these for my dad as a birthday gift and he loves them! The only negative thing is that there isn't a seal for the lids. You just place them in the top.

                        I was going to purchase these for Christmas but they were sold out, I checked back everyday and about a month later they were in stock again. I signed up for the notification e mail to let me know when they were in but I never received it. Luckily I was checking everyday. I realized later that I did receive it, but it went to my junk e-mail, be sure to check your junk e-mail for notifications from here!

                        Comments about MING CRUETS:

                        I fell in love with these upon first viewing. Not only are they funky & unique but the design is pretty ideal. I have gone through several cruets that have become unusable because of that plastic stopper. It would either get stuck in the bottle, break off in the oil or the like. With the glass top stopper, there is probably very little likelihood that this will occur. My only complaint with the product is that I wish they were slightly bigger, like my actual wine glasses :) Oh and the brush that comes with it is not very visible on the packaging. I almost threw mine away like a previous poster mentioned b/c it was taped to the underside of the packaging.

                        Received these as a Christmas gift from my son and his girlfriend...so cute on the table, very whimsical yet elegant on a formal table. funnel is an added bonus. * note comes with a cleaning brush, I accidentally threw away in the packaging.
