We use these at our b&b for piped butter, ketchup, jellies - whatever a guest might request as a condiment. We think it looks nicer than pre-packaged servings or putting out a large communal dispenser. Also use them in guest rooms when someone has a lot of little things lying around - hairclips, earrings, change. We'll put their things in the little dishes so that it's more organized and they are less likely to forget them. Very sturdy, easy to clean.
We use these as condiment dishes at our b&b for ketchup, butter, jellies - whatever a guest may ask for. They hold up well, no chipping, cracking, etc. We'll also put them in guest rooms if we notice someone has a lot of little stuff like rings, earrings, hair clips and will put the items in the dish so guests are less likely to lose their things. Just a good, convenient dish with lots of uses at our business.
