In terms of size the dessert spoon is older brother to the teaspoon and younger brother to the tablespoon. Caught somewhere between the two, dessert spoons accommodate generous bites and we offer them in sizes of 5” to 9” in length, dessert spoons are quite similar to soup spoons in size although a main difference between the two is that the dessert spoon has an oval bowl, not round. The styles we offer are just as varied as the restaurants and businesses that need them, whether you are looking for something more modern or formal, we have the right dessert spoon for you. A dessertspoon is also a unit of measure equal to two teaspoons or roughly 10 mL fluid measure. Use the dessert spoon to serve up all your favorite spoonable desserts, from ice cream to custard or pudding. Everyone loves dessert; serve it the right way with the help of these small spoons.
In a formal table setting the dessert spoon has a place right above both the plate and cake fork with the bowl pointing to the left hand side of the plate, though sometimes it is either a dessert fork or dessert spoon instead of both. For casual place settings, the dessert spoon is omitted and only brought out if dessert is served. Add a set of dessert spoons to your restaurant flatware collection or hotel silverware, we have hundreds of options for silverware patterns that will look great in all sorts of situations. For long lasting and durable restaurant flatware, choose bouillon spoons made of either 18/10 stainless steel or 18/8 stainless steel. For restaurants and hotels that need to save a little money, go for the less expensive flatware in 18/0 stainless steel, these spoons will be a little softer and may be prone to bending or being scratched.
