A hottle is something a customer may see in a restaurant and think, “Hey, I want one of those.” This miniature carafe is excellent for holding refill-sized amounts of coffee or hot water for tea. Rather than having wait staff continually coming back to visit small tables for refills, it’s much easier to simply leave a full hottle of their desired beverage at the table with them. Update International has a perfect option in its 10-oz. Hottle (TTL-10). It has a sure-grip neckband and is large enough for one large or two small cups of coffee. It may also double as a condiment holder for sauces like au jus, which need to be kept at a certain temperature.
