What do you mean by serveware and why is it necessary?

We are all aware of the task of serving, in which serveware can be defined as the extensive range of dinnerware products that help in bringing food to the table. Serveware plays a crucial role in enhancing the visual appeal of your table. Servings are available in a vast price range, from costly bone china to affordable yet durable melamine. They are offered in a variety of designs and patterns, shapes, and sizes to suit the needs and preferences of the consumer. Below is a list of what utensils are included under the term serveware, along with their benefits?

Serving Bowls 

Built in the form of shallow or deep spaces with a diameter of 8 to 9 inches, a flat base, and sloping sides, a serving bowl can be used to serve a variety of dishes, from firm foods such as asparagus, rolls, etc., to soft or creamed foods, like pasta, mashed potatoes, etc.

Beverage Pots 

The utensils falling under the category of beverage pots are:

  • Teapots: can hold about six to eight servings and are crafted with a bulbous body that flares in the center, making room for tea leaves to infuse properly. The spout is precisely placed at the low side of the body so that the leaves are not harmed while the tea is poured from the pot.
  • A coffeepot: a tall and narrow-shaped pot that resembles the look of a truncated cone, allowing the space for the grounds to sink to the bottom and the brew to rise to the top simultaneously. The spoon placement is high on the coffee pot, which prevents the coffee grounds from being pored along with the brew. 
  • Chocolate pots: a chocolate beverage is traditionally prepared by blending a thick paste of chocolate with either hot milk or boiling water. To accommodate this blend, the spout of this pot is wide and short. 


The French word that makes the term platter, "plat", translates to "flat." It is a serveware for dishes that offer meat and potatoes without sauce. It is available in various shapes and sizes, ranging from a 24-inch platter to a 9-inch platter in round, rectangular, or oval shapes. Each plater has a different function. Listed below are a few of them:- 

  • A 24-inch platter: Due to its gigantic size, it is used to serve roasted turkey or ham garnished with vegetables.
  • A 16 to 18-inch platter: can accommodate hot or cold meat for a group of about six to eight people. 
  • A 14-inch oval platter: can serve up to four people with a roast, fish, salad, fruits, and vegetables. 
  • A 12-inch platter: served canopies, sandwiches, food that needs to be served in a ring mould, cake, pies, cookies, tarts, and petit-fours. 
  • A 9-inch platter: to serve condiments and relishes.
  • Formal and informal platters: a traditional platter is used to present a fish course, main course, entry course, salad course, and dessert course, whereas an informal platter can serve meat garnished with assorted cold foods such as sliced fruits and vegetables at an event.

Sauce and Gravy Boats.

An open boat-shaped vessel built with one or even two spouts is used to accommodate and serve sauces and gravy. These vessels are presented in front of the diners by the butler during a formal meal, but the vessel is already placed on the table in the case of an informal meal.

Trays are of great use, be it an informal meeting or even a formal one. They can be used to transport several beverages and pots from one room to another and can even accommodate several dry meals such as bread, rolls, cookies, and sandwiches. In daily life, trays play a vital role in a household.
