Disposable Bamboo Expendable Overview




Handgards® Bamboo Expendables add character, elegance and value to foods. They make foods look more aesthetically appealing and give dishes that fine-dining gourmet look. Handgards® bamboo expendables can be used to complement drinks by holding fruits, lemons, and olives for an upscale, stylish look. Our wood and bamboo expendables can be used to improve the appearance of foods, hold together sandwiches and kebabs, keep meatballs from falling apart during cooking — in fact, there’s no limit to their usefulness in the kitchen!
Why use Bamboo Expendables? Our bamboo options offer an innovative and elegant way to spice up your hors d’oeuvres, appetizers, and beverages with a modern
look that’s sure to please. Restaurants today look at many avenues to add an upscale touch to their menu selections. These bamboo items bring a contemporary look to an otherwise bland presentation and are an eco-friendly option that will be a hit with eco-conscious customers. 
NOTE: If you are placing bamboo or wood expendable products over an open flame, it is recommended to soak them in water for 30 minutes before cooking or grilling.
