Cutlery

Choose from a huge range of cutlery hire for your next event or occasion. All of our cutlery hire is expertly cleaned and packed ready for you in Bristol and the South West of England.

Cutlery hire is the base of what we do at Expo Hire Bristol & Avon. While cutlery are some of the cheapest products to hire, they’re also vitally important to get right for any event or function.

What kinds of cutlery hire are there?

There are four basic kinds of cutlery hire available.

The most used piece of cutlery is the fork. Forks can be used for all kinds of food and come in table and dessert varieties.

The knife is another important piece of cutlery, and like the fork comes in dessert and table varieties. There are also specialised knives for things like carving, cheese and wedding cakes.

The humble spoon comes in three main varieties depending on what kind of food they are to be used for. The soup spoon is the rounder version, while the dessert spoon is more oval and the tea spoon has a smaller bowl. There are also serving spoons available for buffets and serving.

The fourth kind are tongs, which can be used for serving all kinds of food and food products. These can be made of either plastic or stainless steel, to fit what they need to be used for.

Does cutlery hire need to be cleaned before it is returned?

Nobody enjoys washing up piles of cutlery the day after a big event or function - but did you know this is when pieces of cutlery hire is most likely to go missing?

This is the main reason why we have made it mandatory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. This means all you have to do when repacking your cutlery hire ready for collection is to ensure all food debris has been removed.
