This interesting device bears a passing resemblance to a child’s ring-stacking toy, but it is far more sophisticated. The Stackable table set from Peleg Design combines three table condiments into one attractive, space-saving object that looks more like a sculpture than an ordinary kitchen item.
Central to the set and appearing as the bottom ring of the stack is a flat bottomed jar of olive oil. Its angled opening makes it easy to pour without spilling, and a rustic cork stopper contrasts with the very modern look of the rest of the set.
The other two rings are salt and pepper shakers. Maybe having two separate shakers and a bottle just for olive oil doesn’t take up much space, but this brilliant design saves at least a bit of space while making a table look sophisticated and even a little playful. Though the design might appear a little gimmicky at first glance, it’s actually just as functional as a more conventional set, if not more so. The space-saving stackable nature of the set makes it easy to keep your kitchen organized, too.
