Butter pads are essential when serving bread at a function or banquet. Butter can often need time to melt when being served, particularly if being taken from a cold location and the butter pad offers this space on the table.
Like all of our crockery hire, these butter pads are fully vitrified for strength. This means that they can be used safely in dishwashers, freezers and microwaves without worry.
Don't worry about cleaning your crockery hire prior to collection
The last thing anyone wants to do after a big event is wash up all the crockery hire used; but did you know this is when most crockery gets broken while on hire?
It's for this reason that we have made it mandatory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing a customer needs to do is to ensure all crockery is free of food debris and residual liquid before repacking ready for collection.
