The humble spoon is one of the most versatile pieces of cutlery there is. Spoon hire can be used for all parts of a meal including starters, mains and desserts, along with the postprandial coffee.

What do I need to know about spoon hire?

There are three main kinds of spoons available for hire. Soup spoons are generally used for soups (as the name would suggest) and are rounder in shape. Dessert spoons are more oval and are used for puddings. Either spoon can be used with a fork for a main meal such as pasta as a decision on which to use would come down to personal aesthetic. Tea spoons are smaller in size and can come with long or short handles depending on design.

The main difference in styles are down to the patterning on the handles, although in modern times there is now a trend for gold and silver coloured cutlery.

Do I need to clean my spoon hire before I return them?

Cleaning cutlery after a big function is not only a boring job but is also the time when cutlery is most likely to get lost while on hire.

It’s the main reason why we have made it compulsory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All a customer needs to do is to ensure that all food debris is scraped off cutlery before it’s repacked ready for collection.

Looking after your cutlery order

All of our spoons for hire are cleaned and checked before being banded into bundles and packed ready for dispatch. If you want a polished look we advise giving the spoons a little buff with a cloth prior to use. For larger orders we recommend ordering a few more spoons than actually needed just to cover any unexpected eventuality.
