Make every dish stand out with a stylish 3-Tier Round Display Stand, designed to optimise your space while keeping each tier easy to reach. Each stand is available in a range of sizes and can be matched with the serving bowl of your choice. Plus, the tiered design means you can display up to three bowls per stand, freeing up space for other stands and displays on your tables.
Buffet risers bring a unique dimension to food presentation. They're not just about elevation but also about adding depth and dimension to the display. In upscale restaurants or hotels, risers like the Serax Studio Stand/Riser allow you to differentiate your offerings, making dishes more enticing to guests.
Buffet stands are essential for a diverse and visually appealing dining spread. They allow you to display dishes at different heights, creating a visual hierarchy that guides the guests' eyes and makes the buffet appear more abundant. The APS Vintage Mini Buffet Stand is made with a faded wooden design, adding a touch of rustic elegance that seamlessly blends traditional charm with modern functionality.
From buffets to desert displays, catered events and more, everyone knows that cake is always the main event. Give your cake the display it deserves with our range of cake stands and plates, designed to show off your beautiful desserts while keeping your tables crumb-free. Our cake stands are available in chic stainless steel, modern black polycarbonate and natural-looking acacia wood, designed to suit most interior decor styles.
For a beautiful and hygienic display option, try pairing your cake plate or stand with a clear cake cover or cloche from our range. Each cake cover is made with clear polycarbonate, featuring a clear appearance that lets you show off your cake creations while protecting them from the elements. Durable polycarbonate is built to stand up against the rigours of commercial use, making it a great material for restaurants, cafes, buffets, catering and more. Our selection of cake cloches is available with straight sides or in stylish domed designs, so you can find the perfect pairing for your plate or stand.
What’s the difference between a cloche and a cake cover?
In hospitality, cloches and cake covers are essentially the same thing. Both products are used to cover and protect food and are generally made with transparent materials. The main difference is in the name — cloches are generally used in fine dining and upscale venues, whereas cake covers are more common in cafes, catering and restaurants. However, both types of covers share the same purpose: to cover, display and preserve food.
The term "cloche" is derived from the French word for "bell" and traditionally refers to a bell-shaped glass cover. It was originally designed to protect young plants from cold and frost in gardens before being incorporated into the culinary world. Cake covers are typically dome-shaped but not necessarily bell-shaped like a cloche. While cloches are generally made from glass or stainless steel, cake covers are made with various materials, including plastic, glass, metal, ceramic or wood.
Do you stock large covers for tall food stands?
Yes, we do! Our APS Hygienic Covers are designed for tall displays such as our Beechwood Pretzel/Sausage Stand. Made from transparent, food-safe acrylic, each cover is easy to clean and dishwasher safe, making them a durable and convenient option for long-term commercial use. The clear plastic acrylic allows you to show off your food while preserving it for longer — plus, the stylish hexagonal design complements our unique APS Hanging Stands perfectly!
