Good Idea! Serving Platters with Handles

Best Kitchen Basics

We found the perfect serving piece the other day — right before a big party, too! It was a big platter, gently curved enough to hold a chopped salad, but open and flat enough to still be called a platter. The best thing about it? It had handles!

I found this at World Market and I already love it. The handles give the platter a slightly more casual look, but they're genuinely functional. When it's loaded up with sandwiches or steak, it's easier to handle and carry; I'm less afraid it will slip out of my hands.

• Find it: White Oval Serving Platter, $14.99 at World Market stores (not available online)

This platter isn't available online, though, so here are a couple other handled platters look equally appealing.
