If you’re serving food at your event or special occasion, there is every possibility you will need some kind of speciality cutlery to do so. We’ve tried to think of everything you could need to help you make your event go smoothly.

What kinds of speciality cutlery hire are there?

There are actually many different kinds of speciality cutlery available for all kinds of use.

Carving knives and forks are essential if meat is being served, and can be used either in the kitchen or at the table. Carving knives are longer than standard knives and are designed to easily cut meat into aesthetically pleasing slices, while the carving fork holds the meat in place. Wedding cake knives are similar in size but are prettier so that they look nice in photos at a wedding reception.

Cheese knives are shorter and have a fork shape on the end to pick up cheese.

Serving tongs and serving spoons are great for buffets to allow guests to serve themselves. These can either be plastic or stainless steel, depending on the type of food being served.

Do I need to clean speciality cutlery hire before I return it?

We know how much of a pain cleaning cutlery hire is - especially after a big event - but did you know that cutlery is most likely to go missing while it is being cleaned?

It's for this reason we have had to make it compulsory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing you need to do when you've finished using your cutlery hire is to make sure it's scraped clean of any food debris before you pack it ready for collection.

How does delivery of speciality cutlery hire work?

We clean and check all of our speciality cutlery for hire before we pack them ready for shipping. All of our cutlery hire is packed in branded boxes, making it easy to store and pack away ready for return.
