Habitus Loves… Condiments

As much as the dish served should be up to scratch, the tailoring and diner-participation provided by last-minute additions are often the winning flourish of a meal. Present your culinary accoutrements in style with these eight items of condimenting equipment.

Oil/Vinegar Cruet


Designed by: Group SA

Why we love it: Hand blown in Spain from borosilicate glass and featuring an ingenious integrated funnel for refilling and a system to catch any drips that spill down the side of the spout, this oil/vinegar cruet is both convenient and elegant.  

Where you can get it: Oil+


Parmesan Planer


Designed by: Microplane

Why we love it: Allegedly the result of a carpenter’s epiphany regarding the use of a wood-planer for grating fromage, this sturdy implement shaves hard cheeses into curled ribbons, creating beautifully fluffy clouds to garnish pastas, risottos and salads.
