A cocktail strainer is a metal bar accessory used to remove ice from a

mixed drink as it is poured into the serving glass. A type of sieve, the strainer
is placed over the mouth of the glass or shaker in which the beverage was
prepared; small holes in the device allow only liquids to pass as the beverage
is poured.
A blender (liquidiser in British English) is a kitchen and laboratory
appliance used to mix, puree, or emulsify food and other substances. A
stationary blender consists of a blender jar with a rotating metal blade at the
bottom, powered by an electric motor in the base. Some powerful models
can also crush ice. The newer immersion blender configuration has a motor
on top connected by a shaft to a rotating blade at the bottom, which can be
used with any container.
The carafe /krf/, is a container without handles used for serving wine and other drinks.
Unlike the related decanter, carafes do not include stoppers.
Coffee pots included in coffee makers are also referred to as carafes.
In France, carafes are commonly used to serve water. To order a carafe d'eau ("carafe of water")
is to request to be served (free) tap water rather than bottled water at a cost.
An ashtray is a receptacle for ash from cigarettes and cigars. Ashtrays are
typically made of fireproof material such as glass, heat-resistant plastic,
pottery, metal, or rock. Improvised ashtrays may include coffee cans and
In US English, a pitcher is a container with a spout used for storing and
pouring contents which are liquid in form. Generally a pitcher also has a
handle, which makes pouring easier. An ewer is a vase-shaped pitcher, often
decorated, with a base and a flaring spout, though the word is now unusual
in informal English describing ordinary domestic vessels.[
A funnel is a pipe with a wide, often conical mouth and a narrow stem. It is
used to channel liquid or fine-grained substances into containers with a small
opening. Without a funnel, spillage would occur.
A decanter is a vessel that is used to hold the decantation of a liquid (such
as wine) which may contain sediment. Decanters are normally used as
serving vessels for wine.[citation needed] Decanters vary in shape and design. They
are usually made of an inert material (such as glass) and will hold at least
one standard bottle of wine (0.75 litre).[1] A similar kind of vessel, the carafe

/krf/, is used for serving wine as well as other drinks, but is not supplied
with a stopper.
A wine bucket is normally used in a restaurant, the bucket is filled about one
third full with ice and cold water, and is then used to keep a bottle of wine
chilled by the table whilst you enjoy a fine meal.
A bottle opener is a device that enables the removal of metal bottle caps
from bottles. More generally, it might be thought to include corkscrews used
to remove cork or plastic stoppers from wine bottles.
Wine bottle openers are required to open wine bottles that are stoppered
with a cork. They are slowly being supplanted by the screwcap closure. There
are many different inceptions of the wine bottle opener ranging from the
simple corkscrew, the screwpull lever, to complicated carbon dioxide driven
openers. The most popular is the wine key, sommelier knife or "waiter's
friend" which resembles a pocket knife and has a small blade for cutting foil
and a screw with a bottle brace.
A mixing glass or stirring glass does what its name says. It is used to
prepared cocktails that contain light ingredients and do not require of a hard
shake but a light stir only.
A cutting board is a durable board on which to place material for cutting.
The kitchen cutting board is commonly used in preparing food; other types
exist for cutting raw materials such as leather or plastic. Kitchen cutting
boards are often made of wood or plastic and come in various widths and
A knife (plural knives) is a cutting tool with a cutting edge or blade, handheld or otherwise, with or without a handle. Knife-like tools were used at
least two-and-a-half million years ago, as evidenced by the Oldowan tools.[1]
Originally made of rock, bone, flint, and obsidian, knives have evolved in
construction as technology has, with blades being made from bronze,
copper, iron, steel, ceramics, and titanium. Many cultures have their unique
version of the knife. Due to its role as humankind's first tool, certain cultures
have attached spiritual and religious significance to the knife.[3]
A wine stopper is an essential wine accessory to close leftover wine bottles
before refrigerating them. Wine stoppers are used because it is hard to put
the original cork back into the bottleneck.

A juicer is a tool for separating juice from fruits, herbs, leafy greens and
other types of vegetables from its pulp in a process called juicing. In
separating the pulp, juicers concentrate the nutrition naturally present in
fruits and vegetables which allows the body to more easily absorb the
nutrition than digesting the solid produce. The use of juicers also makes it
easier to consume more raw produce. Some juicers of the masticating or twin
gear variety perform extra functions too, such as crushing herbs and spices,
and extruding pasta.
An ice pick is a tool used to break up, pick at, or chip at ice. It resembles a scratch awl, but is
designed for picking at ice rather than wood. Before the invention of modern refrigerators, ice
picks were a ubiquitous household tool used for separating and shaping the blocks of ice used in
ice boxes.
The term ice pick also commonly refers to a mountaineers' tool known in the USA as an ice axe.

A corkscrew is a kitchen tool for drawing corks from wine bottles. Generally,
a corkscrew consists of a pointed metallic helix (often called the "worm")
attached to a handle. The user grips the handle and screws the metal point
into the cork, until the helix is firmly embedded, then a vertical pull on the
corkscrew extracts the cork from the bottle. Corkscrews are necessary
because corks themselves, being small and smooth, are difficult to grip and
remove, particularly when inserted fully into an inflexible glass bottle. The
handle of the corkscrew, often a horizontal bar of wood attached to the
screw, allows for a commanding grip to ease removal of the cork. Corkscrew
handles may incorporate levers that further increase the amount of force
that can be applied outwards upon the cork.
A jigger or measure is a bartending tool used to measure liquor, which is
typically then poured into a cocktail shaker. It is named for the unit of liquid
it typically measures, a jigger or shot, which measures 1 12 US fluid ounces
(44 ml).[17] However, bar jiggers come in other sizes and may not actually
measure a fluid jigger.
In US English, a pitcher is a container with a spout used for storing and
pouring contents which are liquid in form. Generally a pitcher also has a
handle, which makes pouring easier. An ewer is a vase-shaped pitcher, often
decorated, with a base and a flaring spout, though the word is now unusual
in informal English describing ordinary domestic vessels.[1] An example of an
ewer is the America's Cup given to the winner of the America's Cup sailing

regatta match.[2] In English speaking countries outside North America, a jug

is any container with a handle and a mouth and spout for liquidAmerican
"pitchers" are more likely to be called jugs elsewhere.
