If you've had escargot before you know there is a specific escargot plate you can buy for serving.

What Are Escargot Plates?

Escargot plates' defining feature is the indentation the shells rest in for serving. The indentations keep the snails from falling out or shifting too much in the dish. They also ensure that all the seasoning and juices remain in the indentation for enjoyment. With such a specialized delicacy, an escargot plate is only used for escargot.

What Are Escargot Plates Made Of?

An escargot plate is typically made of stoneware, porcelain, ceramic, and other materials that are oven safe so it can be cooked and served all on one plate. Porcelain tends to be lighter and brings an air of refinement to the experience. However, porcelain is more difficult to take care of and is prone to break and chip easier. Ceramic is less delicate that porcelain and is a good option all around. You may also consider using a metal escargot plate for serving purposes. The handle design on an escargot plate you may buy can tend to vary from a single, long handle to two smaller handles on opposing sides.

Are Escargot Plates Dishwasher Safe?

Many escargot plates for sale are available in a dishwasher safe option. You will want to consult each item's care instructions to confirm if this is the case. Most porcelain and ceramics are dishwasher safe.
