3 Reasons to Have A Teak Food Tray in Your Patio




Whether you agree or not, wood-crafted accessories offer a sense of artistic experience, even an item as simple as a teak food tray. People love the authentic and unbalanced look of wood, as compared to human-made materials like stainless steel or aluminium; it offers a sense of artistic experience to the surroundings. Especially if you have noticed, fine dining restaurants tend to serve their food with wooden food trays, as it adds another layer of luxury to their food.


Nevertheless, a wooden tray sometimes can give you a headache too, as it is naturally permeable because of its porous surface, thus liquid or moisture is its enemy, and unavoidably they both will make contact at some points – spilling of food or drink or cleaning the tray. The pores of wood create microscopic tunnels for bacteria to move from the surface down into the grain of the wood serving tray, and soon that particular tray will be rotting and fading; it looks gross and unsanitary, and it eventually ends up in your trash.


Ok, now you might be skeptical of using any wood for a food serving tray ever – wrong. There are many types of woods that you can choose to make the tray of. Teak, a premium type of wood, is what we recommend for you, specifically the treated teak wood. Below are the 3 reasons why you need to have one teak-made food tray for your home or restaurant business, as opposed to regular wood.

Ease Of Clean

If you own a teak food tray or any wood-made furniture, you know the struggle – you have probably been told not to clean with water, but it is hard sometimes trying to remove stains or dirt without water. However, since the treated teak has been properly processed for weather resistance, liquid simply cannot penetrate it. Therefore, cleaning treated and untreated wood is not as easy as one might think, as a small mistake can bring in a disaster or break your bank account again.


Additionally, as mentioned it is not permeable meaning any liquid or sauce can be removed quite easily, with a wipe. Whereas regular wood will quickly absorb the water and you will have a hard time eliminating the stains.



Due to the weather-resistant feature of the treated teak food tray, any harmful elements or bacteria like fungi or mildew will not take place on the surface. Therefore, there is no problem serving your food with the teak tray, and most importantly, your guests will feel delighted.


Moreover, it has become a style of displaying your food on a tray, especially in those self-service dining restaurants. The teak tray not only is capable of performing in such high traffic usage, with the natural oil finish for its shiny look, but it also offers a luxury dining experience to your guests.

With the solid quality and weight, one will feel much safer carrying food with a teak food tray, especially when carrying a heavy lot of stuff on top. Lastly, even though teak made tray costs more than a regular one, it is a long-term investment – it can help you to serve your customers for many years in the future.

We suggest getting a teak tray with a handle to increase the ease of use, and with the curved-up edges around the tray, you can prevent food from going off while using. Alternatively, a stainless steel handle will be best matched otherwise, as it can last just about as long.
