Ramekins and Sauce Cups: Complementing Your Appetizers
Ramekins and sauce cups are small containers to serve condiments, sauces, dips, and dressings, which are essential to maximize the food's taste. Although foods, meals, and appetizers perfectly match the well-thought sauces, they should be served separately in some cases, particularly when the food is crispy and the sauce causes sogginess. Hence, upscale restaurants and cafes purvey ramekin sets to ensure an attractive presentation while maintaining the best texture of their foods.
Chef's Deal carries ramekin and sauce cups in different sizes (including 2-1/2 oz (70.87 gr) options) and designs that offer versatile and long-term use. You may also wish to see our other servingware and dinnerware accessories to equip your tables.
What is The Difference Between a Ramekin and a Cup?
The difference between a ramekin and a cup lies primarily in their intended use and design:
- Ramekins are small dishes used for baking and serving individual portions of desserts, dips, or sauces. They're made of ceramic, porcelain, or glass and are oven-safe. Ramekins have vertical sides and no handles.
- Cups hold liquids for drinking and are common in tableware sets. Depending on the drink, they are made from materials such as ceramic, glass, metal, plastic, or paper. Cups have a handle and a curved design for comfort but are not for oven use. Unlike ramekins, cups are for drinking, not baking.
