    An elegant companion at the bar and even on the salad table, the Porthole is a striking infusion vessel from the house of Crucial Detail Design. Originally customized for Chicago’s Aviary bar-chefs, the Porthole finds culinary expression in creating dressings, lemonade, coffee and a host of infusions and syrups. Crafted mindfully with tempered low iron glass and stainless steel this 7” infusion vessel ports your bar and kitchen creations to a whole new dimension, all the while extending a gorgeous visual invitation to its creators and consumers alike.


    Designed by Martin Kastner, this chic utilitarian infusion vessel comes with three photo etched stainless steel filter screens of differing densities, a silicon cap to seal in those long term infusion experiment, tools and a custom Porthole cocktail recipe booklet  studded with infusions from the bar chefs of the Chicago’s beloved and globally admired Aviary itself.
