Slate Serving Tray, Used By Restaurants, Makes A Unique Cheese Board
There are few things more visually pleasing than the stark contrast of natural, deep black slate against the light and welcome presence of fresh cheeses, fruit, meats and breads.
Slate has always been the staple when it comes to plating cheese because of its unique physical properties and visual appeal; the dark color of the natural stone brightens your cheeses and other foods making your dishes or offerings more vibrant and attractive.
Our footing keeps the slate board stable on the table and easy to pick up, and the board is easy to clean by hand or in the dishwasher… that's why top restaurants choose Slateplate!
We offer our boards in a variety of sizes, suited to your easy-going needs, or for the many restaurants that use our boards. We also have stainless steel handles available for select sizes, as well as gift boxes for certain sizes. You can take a look at our gift boxes here.
We also offer two different edge finishes. Our original, hand-cut and finished, natural edge and surface provides a subtle texture. Our latest, carved edge and surfaced slates are smooth and refined. Both can be warmed or chilled prior to serving, and are dishwasher safe.
We suggest that you buy one of our stainless steel knives if you are to cut on this board. Although you can use our slate as a cutting board, it will dull your knife after extended use.
Slate works great as a chalk board so it takes an ordinary serving dish and makes it different and fun. For the ultimate unique gift, any of our slate serving boards or trays can be personalized with laser engravingRead more...

We want you to be happy and will send a replacement on any item broken in transit (see details below). Since slate is a natural stone, we can not refund your money if you are unhappy with the texture or color of the product. Please review our photos, they are very representative of the final product that we ship. There are no refunds for custom lasered items.
Although very rare, if you receive a slate that has been broken in transit, please contact us and we will ship you out a replacement or refund your purchase. We can not take any action though until you provide us with a photo of the broken product.
Variation in texture , size and composition of the slate is normal, the result of nature’s processes in formation and the unique beauty of a Slateplate.
Our slate plates and serving trays range in thickness from 1/4"-3/8". Individual slates may vary in thickness over the course of the slate, which is not uncommon and does not affect the quality or strength of the slate. All slate products are hand finished and leveled.
Each slateplate is put through a rigorous, hand-finishing process to eliminate flaking and sharp edges. If a portion of the face of your slate chips or is scratched, simply rub a small amount of olive oil on it to restore its finish.
Slateplate is very strong, but if you drop it, it may break or shatter. Any portion of a broken slate is as sharp as or sharper than glass, so please be careful to clean it up and discard the broken slate.
If your slate has acrylic feet, it is dishwasher safe. Slates with handles or felt feet are not dishwasher safe. Never put your slate in the microwave or the oven. Slate conducts heat and will be extremely hot. You can put your slateplate in a warming tray (for ceramic dishes) or the refrigerator to preheat or cool the slate prior to use.
