SALAD SERVERS / TONGS

  • Modern salad servers that neatly slot together to become tongs that can be used with one hand.
    • For use as salad servers or tongs
    • Made from bamboo
    • Perfect for picking up small seeds and tomatoes
    • L 30.5cm W 8cm H 0.8cm / L 12" W 2.7" H 0.6"
  • Are the servers dishwasher safe?
    The bamboo servers are not dishwasher safe.

    How should the bamboo servers be treated and cared for?
    We recommend using a food safe mineral oil and applying with a cotton cloth once a month (if you are using them regularly). Make sure you wipe off any excess oil. This will ensure that it does not dry out and crack.

    What are the benefits of bamboo as a material?
    Technically speaking, bamboo is a grass and not a wood. It is a sustainable resource due to the fact that it grows so quickly and can be harvested. It is a very dense wood and this means that it holds less moisture compared with other wooden boards. It also makes it less prone to warping (if cared for correctly).

    How should the bamboo be cleaned?
    Clean your bamboo servers with hot water and soap or a dilution of bleach and water (1 tablespoon of bleach per gallon / 4.5l of water). Do not leave the servers in water and make sure to dry them with a tea towel or kitchen roll after cleaning.

A WORD FROM THE DESIGNER

Looking at how people use salad bowls and servers, we noticed that often the salad is passed around the table so people can help themselves. With standard servers, it requires people to hold the bowl, so the person sitting next to them can use both hands to serve the salad. The advantage of tongs is that you can hold the bowl with one hand and serve the salad with the other. Having said this, there is a nice social interaction of the person sitting next to you holding the salad bowl for you, so we wanted to keep the option of traditional servers. We wanted a minimal solution that worked in both formats and took advantage of the bamboo to create the living hinge. We made many different models of the servers, to work out the best way they can slot together to form tongs.
