Buffet & Catering Utensils
At the heart of a catering business are the utensils that are used to help customers serve themselves. The most common types of catering utensils include serving forks, serving tongs, buffet serving spoons, catering knives, and more.
Obviously, catering utensils are mostly designed to help ladle, spoon, grab, and scoop food from chafing dishes and food bars or buffet stations. Needless to say, most of these catering utensils must address all the serving needs of the customer.
What every catering business should avoid are instances wherein diners get to the buffet only to find out too late that there are no catering utensils that can help them scoop, grab, spoon, and ladle the food into their plates. Nothing can be more infuriating for the customer, and this can potentially result in negative press for your business. With that said, it is imperative that you make sure you have catering utensils on hand.
Most buffet utensils are made of various materials, the most common of which are stainless steel, silver, and plastic with each type of utensil suited for different types of uses.
For instance, stainless steel serving utensils are great for use in tandem with a chafing dish or a stainless-steel buffet station. Plastic utensils like plastic serving tongs are ideal for use with tabletop food bars as well as modular food bars and even in outdoor dining events.
It cannot be stressed enough to catering businesses to make sure that they provide the appropriate catering utensils to their customers in order to make sure that their guests have the best dining experience possible. It is also important to make sure that you have the appropriate catering utensils depending on the type of catering event. For instance, for casual catering, plastic utensils like plastic serving tongs and the like can be used, but for more formal and fancy events like weddings, silverware such as silver serving tongs and the like or polished stainless steel serving utensils are more appropriate.
