Serving dishes vs platters - what is the difference?

Serving dishes are plates or dishes used to hold food to be served during a meal. Platters are serving trays, often used for canapes, cheese or antipasto. Platters can be carried outside, taken down to the pool or sat upon a bar.

Get to know your materials

The right material depends on how you plan to use your servingware. Whilst China might be beautiful in the dining room, Melamine may be more practical for the deck. Choose from a wide selection of materials made to suit the occasion:

  • Wood - Beautiful for breadboards, cheese platters and fruit bowls

  • Plastic - Easy care, practical for outdoor dining and available in fun colours and prints

  • Ceramic - Elegant, durable and great for keeping food warm

  • Stainless steel - Chic, functional and long lasting

Match your servingware to your meal

Have fun matching your servingware to your meal. Pull out the Royal Doulton for a Sunday roast, place tapas on a serving board for a casual lunch, or decorate an oval platter with salmon blini for the cocktail party. The opportunities are endless.

Keep your butter fresh with butter dishes

Not only does it look great, but a butter dish keeps your butter at the perfect spreadable temperature. Leave butter out on the bench as long as you like with a cute, modern, or classic dish.

Choose the right shaped dish for your food

The sight and smell of your dish are as important as the taste. Select the right dish to complement all your hard work and impress the guests before they have even taken a bite.
