Restaurants often make use of special dishes to make appetizers and other foods look even more appealing and there's no reason not to use the same tactic if you're serving food up at home. It doesn't hurt if such special serving dishes make cleanup easier, too. The Appetizer Serving Cone, designed with fries, mozzarella sticks, and other treats fresh out of the fryer in mind, is easy to use and clean up. It even helps such treats stay fresh because they don't sit in grease the way they might on a plate. Twist a paper liner into a cone and place it in the metal framework that makes up the Appetizer Serving Cone. Fill it with your favorite foods and, when they've been eaten, throw away the paper liner and place the metal cone in the dishwasher.

The Appetizer Serving Cone is 7 inches tall and 5 inches wide, which is big enough for a small crowd. If you're entertaining a big party, you may actually need a few cones. It's constructed from black powder-coated metal. The Appetizer Serving Cone is $8.95; you can typically pick up packs of paper liners, such as those made for food baskets, for around $5 per pack.
