Portion utensils are kitchen accessories commonly used by caterers, fast food chains, and buffets at restaurants to serve food in portions. They are made of plastic or stainless steel that are durable and will last for years. They have long handles so you can hold onto them easily. They are rated for temperatures up to 190º F so there is no need to worry about them melting or getting deformed. They come perforated at the bottom so that juices are drained, while others come in a solid bowl. A lot of them are color coded, and they are also stain resistant and dishwasher safe. Some of them have holes in the handles so you can hang them up on pegs when they are not in use. They come in various sizes and capacities, from as small as 1 ounce to as much as 12 ounces. They are also offered in a range of prices to satisfy every budget. Portion utensils are also great for establishments that promote healthier eating through portion control sizes and providing a calorie count for each meal as seen on their menu.
