I will always go for the mini version of something over the regular-size version. Sure, the cute factor is one reason, but it also has to do with how little space I’m working with in my apartment. Exhibit A: My compact air fryer toaster oven, which I swear by for easy dinners. It’s multifunctional, so it saves space in that regard, but it’s also half the size of most others on the market. Exhibit B: My mini Always Pan, which is my go-to for basically every meal. It’s perfect for individual portions, and cleanup time is way shorter.

I just came across another mini product that immediately shot to the top of my wish list. Why? For one, it’s from Le Creuset, and secondly, it costs only $22. It can do multiple jobs, and to top it all off, it comes in Pêche, the brand’s latest summery hue. I won’t hold you in suspense: I’m talking about the Signature Petite Pitcher. Trust me, you have to grab this gem before summer entertaining kicks off. Check out the details below!

What Is the Signature Petite Pitcher?

Inspired by mid-century design, the Petite Pitcher packs a ton of style despite its small size. With its 10 fluid-ounce capacity, it’s ideal for serving syrup and sauces, as well as cream or milk while you’re drinking your morning coffee. Like its larger counterpart, it also doubles as a stunning vase for tiny flowers. Like many other Le Creuset pieces, its timeless design means that it transitions seamlessly from functional kitchenware to decor. The pitcher is available in four of the brand’s iconic colors, including red, blue, white, and the aforementioned peach shade.

More on its functionality: Pouring is easy thanks to its large loop handle and tapered spout, which helps prevent spills. The glaze on the high-quality stoneware is easy to clean and wear-resistant — like the rest of the brand’s offerings, it’s built to last a lifetime. You can even put it in the dishwasher and microwave, and it’ll still hold up.

If limited space and a tighter budget are what held you back from grabbing the $50 full-size version, this is your sign to grab the tiny one before it sells out. (The regular-size is already gone in Pêche, FYI.) Summer is almost here, so don’t wait!
