Tesco Value Platters
Advantages: Cheap, durable, can be re-used
We have quite a large family so at many family gatherings the food is served buffet style, so everyone can help themselves. At such events we regularly use these Tesco Value Platters to serve the food on. These platters are only available at Tesco and are part of their "value" budget range.
These platters come in a pack of 5 and they cost £2.50, working out at 50p per piece. They are oval in shape and quite large in size. The platters aren't anything special to look at. They are made of foil and they are kind of embossed and have a textured feel. To make them look a bit prettier at parties we will often place coloured napkins on them before putting the food on top.
The foil is reasonably sturdy and the platters hold a decent amount of food - approx 25-30 sandwich triangles to give you an idea of amounts.. We regularly fill these with sandwiches, cocktail sausages and other party nibbles. The platters can withstand the weight of food well and are easy enough to carry when full. They do not become out of shape or bent even when filled with food. The edges of the platters are raised which makes carrying them when full a little bit easier. At Christmas time in work we had a party and I brought some food in on one of these platters and I found that the platter was easily transported in my car and didn't become damaged in any way.
A big advantage of these platters is that they are re-usable. I am not sure whether or not Tesco actually intend them to be reusable but we have found that if you give them a good wash in hot soapy water they hold their shape well and stay as good as new. I have found that you can get away with re-using these about 3-4 times before they start to lose their shape a bit, at which point we chuck them out and buy new ones.
These platters are really cheap at the price of £2.50 for a pack of 5, especially considering they can be used more than once. They are so useful for serving food to large groups of people. I can't really think of any disadvantages of these and for this reason I am giving them a 5 star rating. I hope you have found this review useful, and thanks for reads/rates.
