Google: "table vinegar" site:uk

Table vinegar isn't a common phrase in Britain, whereas Tafelessig can be found in all German/Austrian supermarkets.

If you are usng it for a UK audience, you may want to specify a different type of vinegar that's available there.

Tafelessig is the cheapest and most commonly used vinegar - at least in Austria. It's also called Branntweinessig and it is stronger than Weinessig (contains more acid).
Wikipedia(DE): Branntweinessig

I would say the most common types of vinegar in the UK are
* malt vinegar (a dark brown vinegar which we put on chips and in mint sauce, and which the Internet tells me is made of malted barley - but I never knew that until today, I just knew it as the vinegar my mother had in her cupboards when I was a kid - if you say "vinegar" to me, malt vinegar is what I think of)
* white/red wine vinegar
* distilled vinegar/spirit vinegar (a clear vinegar made from distilling malt vinegar - it's used for pickling and for cleaning purposes)
* Balsamic vinegar (an Italian vinegar used on salads and in Italian recipes)
* cider vinegar (vinegar made of cider - often considered to have health benefits and often also used for rinsing your hair - a somewhat more recent arrival in my cupboards than any of the aforementioned vinegars)

If you wrote "table vinegar" I'd assume you meant malt vinegar.
Interestingly, dict.cc says Branntweinessig is "distilled vinegar" or "brandy vinegar". I've never heard of "brandy vinegar" in English. I don't get the impression it's exactly the same as distilled vinegar, but it's possible you can use it in the same recipes. I'm not convinced British shops sell Branntweinessig, so "brandy vinegar" may well be the correct translation, but it would be hard to find in the UK if it is.

and would have written something very similar if I'd had more time earlier :-)

just as matter of interest. You have Tafelsalz. Wouldn't this be table salt? (There are also different grades)

Table salt is a common term in English. As I understand it, it simply means "(non-specialist) salt for eating" as opposed to salt for non-food purposes such as the dishwasher or gritting and also as opposed to more expensive forms of salt for eating, such as sea salt or rock salt.

thanks Windfall. I had assumed one could also transfer this and say table vinegar, but quite obviously not!
