I read that a reviit (the minimal size for a cup used for kiddush, havdala etc) is 86.4 mL according to the generally accepted view (see here for options). Does anyone know where I can get a cup that is exactly that size or as close to it as possible? I don't need to be using extra wine when I make kiddush every week.

Try this one. It's 94 mL which is as close as I'd feel comfortable with. The manufacturer's website is here, but the first link has free shipping in the USA.

are you talking to yourself?? – avi Dec 6 '11 at 18:50
@avi You caught me! See meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/306/… – Double AA Dec 6 '11 at 18:57
Answering your own question is different from talking to yourself :) "try this one." is something you say to other people :)P – avi Dec 6 '11 at 19:13

This cup is 3 oz which is 88.7 ml and is actually a kiddush cup :)

To be clear, your cup is 3 ounces. I don't know enough laws about advertising but I bet they can be slightly off and still label it that way. My answer above is a European manufacturer who labeled it as 94 mL. But, yes, yours is an actual kiddush cup! – Double AA Dec 6 '11 at 18:55
Compare with this cup: amazon.com/Woodbury-Pewter-Communion-Cup-oz/dp/B001A6LR82/… They are clearly the same cup but one is $10 cheaper! I wonder if it counts as AZ.. – Double AA Dec 6 '11 at 18:55
I guess the Jewish star makes demand lower so they have to charge more :) – avi Dec 6 '11 at 19:11
avi, that's the opposite of how supply and demand are supposed to work. More likely, it's for the extra work and additional supply chain steps required to put the star on. – Isaac Moses Dec 6 '11 at 19:16
@IsaacMoses That is actually how supply and demand work in Judaica, however. – Seth J Dec 6 '11 at 20:13
