These sherbet dishes are specially designed for serving sorbet in a commercial food service establishment. The most traditional model has a metal bowl and a flat base with a mirrored finish. Glass sherbet dishes are shaped like goblets and are another popular choice, since they allow customers to view the colors of the sorbet inside. Sherbet dishes are not only for sorbet. They can also be used to serve sundaes, banana splits and other ice cream dishes. The bowl is designed with a scalloped edge, which improves the presentation. The base of the dish will protect the table from the cold sweat of the bowl, which is created by the frozen cold ice cream. Restaurants should look for sherbet servers that are dishwasher safe and resistant to rusting and corrosion. This will help prevent damage to the product and will ensure that your dishes remain presentable.
