Use of Sea Shells for Food Presentation.
Seashells like these scallops make for excellent food presentation due to their bowl-like shape and the ability to clean them thoroughly on all surfaces.

Shells for food presentation 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 yet light weight. In many cases seashells are stronger than ceramic plates, however, chipping can occur with thinner shells, especially blue mussels and river clams.

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 for food presentation.

Sea shells are non-porous, however, deterioration of the surface can cause pitting if the shells are 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 and used for display in the chill cabinet.

Safety Considerations:
Whilst this natural sea shell is considered to be harmless, it is not suitable for children under 36 months due to either shape, small particle size, or the possibility of breakage.
