Shell presented as a single dish shaped "half"

This shell may be used for food presentation. Although relatively shallow at 1.5cm the shell does have a substantial area of approximately 140 sq cm (24 sq inches) making it a suitable platter for Sushi, Tao Fu and Sea Weed.

Use of Shells for Food Presentation.

Seashells like these river oysters make for high quality presentation due to their shallow dish shape and the ability to clean them thoroughly on all surfaces.

Sea shells offered by Online Shells as serving dishes are made naturally form the mineral Calcium Carbonate. We are not aware of any other compounds or minerals within the seashells that would preclude their use as food presentation dishes.

Seashells have a complex layered construction, making them extremely strong and light weight. In many cases seashells are stronger than ceramic plates, but be aware that chipping can occur along the edges of thinner shells.

Whilst seashells are dishwasher safe we would suggest that hand washing may be more practical. Online Shells have been thoroughly cleaned, however, post cleaning the shells are stored under warehouse conditions and appropriate measures should be taken commensurate with established food hygiene practice before using seashells for food presentation.

Seashells are non-porous. However, deterioration of the surface can cause pitting when multi-used.

Seashells can be used for cooking and presentation of hot food. Do not put seashells in the microwave.

Seashells can also handle the cold. When for display in the chill cabinet repeated cycles of washing may dull the shells’ colour.

Colour & Form:
We take great care to provide accurate images, however, as a totally natural product shade variations and irregularities can occur, we consider these add to the fascination of the collection.
