Description & Application

Classic scallop shaped dish but substantially heavier than the traditional Atlantic variety .

Use of Shells for Food Presentation.

These scallop shells make for first class presentation containers due to their bowl-like shape and the ability to clean them thoroughly on all surfaces. The weight of the shells makes them very stable and able to hold the cold very well.

Sea shells offered by On Line 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. These shells are frequently used as food platters in their native California.

Seashells have a complex layered construction, making them extremely strong and light weight. In many cases seashells are stronger than ceramic plates.

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, the surface can become pitted which could potentially harbor bacteria if the shells are not properly cleaned 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 used as display pieces in the chill cabinet repeated cycles of washing may dull the seashells’ colour. This can be restored with a very light coating of cooking oil.
