When the buffet opens, make sure that guests have everything they need to serve each dish. Serving spatulas are perfect for serving casseroles, hamburgers, meatloaf and other food items that need a flat serving surface. Use them for serving flat-shaped foods at the buffet, such as lasagna, pancakes, waffles and patties. Using a fork or tongs to serve these items could result in crushing of the food. If you will be pairing your food servers with chafing dishes and steam table pans, consider buying stainless steel models. The sleek and shiny steel will complement your metal chafing dishes and steam tables nicely. We have serving spatulas in a variety of styles, too, from slotted to solid models.
