Stainless steel serving trays are a classic, timeless choice of tray for any catering operation, or for family-style service at a restaurant or home. Whether you are catering a formal ball or throwing a New Year’s Party, you can find a stainless steel catering tray that is perfect for the occasion. When shopping for stainless serving trays and platters, it is most important that you consider the size, style and weight of the tray. If you will be using the trays for table service, a lightweight stainless steel bar tray with wide rims might be the best choice for you. On the other hand, if you will be using the trays at the buffet line, style becomes the most important factor. Choose a tray that will match the style of the rest of your buffet displayware.
If you will be using the tray to carry appetizers from table to table or to bring them from the kitchen to the buffet, a decorative tray with handles is often a good choice. On the other hand, if the trays will be used to serve relishes, dips and finger foods, a divided multi-compartment serving tray is probably your best option.
