In the kitchen, you will use many different syrups. Some syrups will be used to top things like griddle cakes, and other syrups will be used as ingredients in various recipes. After cooking for 50+ years I have learned that a syrup dispenser can be an important tool in your kitchen.
The best syrup dispenser is practical, useful, and decorative. You want a dispenser that makes life easier for you. You also want things in your home to add to the beauty and elegance of your surroundings. The following dispenser is some of the favorite ones I have tried.

Syrup Dispenser Buying Guide
Having a syrup dispenser is a great way to serve warm toppings for delicious desserts and breakfast entrees. Before you purchase one of these units you should consider their possible features to find the right one for your kitchen.
Size of Dispenser
The holding containers of these items may hold anywhere from six ounces of fluid to 18 ounces. You will be able to decide how much syrup you want to have available dependent on how you use the syrup inside.
If you plan to simply use it as a means of serving sweet toppings for pancakes and such a smaller unit will be fine. If you plan to store honey, molasses, or contents for cooking in the unit you might want a larger device.
The Material it is Made From
Dispensers may be made from plastic, acrylic, or glass. They may also have lids and handles that are made from metals like chrome.
Acrylic and plastic containers are lighter than glass containers. Acrylic and plastic are easier for children to handle, and they usually do not break as easily as glass. Normally you cannot wash units made of plastic in the dishwasher.
Glass holders can be washed in the dishwasher, and they are very hygienic. The glass is attractive and can be used when you are heating the contents in the microwave.
How it Works
Some dispensers release the contents through an opening on the lid of the unit. Generally, there is either a spring-loaded lid or a slide back lid that closes the opening when the unit is not in use.
Some units have openings on the bottom. The units with openings on the bottom are great for thick contents like honey and molasses.
The materials the unit is made of will determine whether or not you can clean the unit in a dishwasher or have to hand-wash it. Read the manufacturer’s suggestions before you begin to clean.
The best dispensers are the ones that can be used to hold a variety of different ingredients. The units that have an opening on the lid can often be used for syrups, dressings, milk, or cream. You tip these dispensers slightly to pour the liquid out of the opening.
If the opening is on the bottom of the canister you will want to keep thicker contents like honey or molasses in. These units work on gravity so thinner liquids like milk would rush out too quickly from them.
Using a dispenser for your syrups, dressings, and other liquids allow you to glamorize your meal. They also make measuring a teaspoonful or tablespoonful of contents like honey easier to do.
You can even keep flavored syrups like chocolate or caramel so you use them to dispense toppings for ice cream.
They are perfect when you want to serve warmed ingredients like warm maple syrup over a pancake. The warming of the syrup will allow the pancakes to absorb the sweetened liquid and you will use less syrup when serving.
