These dessert knives are part of our Bead selection of cutlery and are great for any function where food is being served.
The dessert knife is smaller than a table knife, and is designed to be used as their name suggests, desserts. However, these knives work with starters or appetisers, particularly when the food on offer is of a smaller, more delicate style.
Our bead cutlery is so named because it features an attractive beading border. They are made of high-grade stainless steel to give the best finish. They are one of our most popular styles of cutlery available, and while we have literally thousands of pieces in stock at busy times of year availability can go quickly.
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.
At Expo Hire we are committed to offering the very best quality of service. We clean and check all of our cutlery carefully before we pack it ready for delivery. It’s worth noting that we do not polish cutlery; if this is needed it’s worth setting some time aside to give items a little buff.

Unless the two person carriage charge has been paid for, deliveries and collections are made by a single driver, who has 15 minutes to deliver or collect your order.
Our drivers are not allowed to take items up or down stairs or into lifts, and all deliveries need to be made within 50m of the vehicle. If it takes the driver longer then you will be charged £12.50 per additional 15 minutes. If a driver arrives and delivery or collection is impossible then unfortunately an additional carriage charge will be added to your order.
If there are likely to be issues with regards to location, staff onsite or the size of the order, then it's imperative you advise us BEFORE you place your order. Please note that our vans cannot go off-road onto grass or dirt areas, particularly when it has been wet due to the chances of the vehicle getting stuck.
As our drivers are multiple drop drivers, any issues with your delivery or collection of your order could result in issues for other customers. We ask that you are mindful of this when we are delivering or collecting your order.
