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
Nobody wants to wash up crockery hire after a big event or occasion. However, from our experience of delivering crockery hire to Milton Keynes and the surrounding area we've found it's while cleaning most breakages happen.
This is why we have made it mandatory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All you need to do when your event is over is to scrape food debris from your plates, bowls etc and to empty them of liquid before repacking them in the packing crates. We'll look after the rest for you.
