A comport can be similar to a bonbon dish or compote but with a larger, flatter dish section. Likewise, they are also used for holding food and sometimes can be quite flat. For example, they might look like a small, slightly rimmed plate resting on a pedestal base.

Certainly, comport and compote dishes are sometimes confused. In fact, comport is a 16th century variation of the word compote so, in other words, there is a connection. Consequently, it has been suggested that the difference between the two is simply that compotes have lids and comports don’t. However, some compotes don’t have lids either so that makes it a difficult distinction. Comports do tend to be flatter and often saucer-like in shape but in contrast, compotes have a more distinctive vase shape.
