Why shouldn't you serve caviar in metal utensils?

There is a widely held belief that caviar should not be served using metal utensils, whether a spoon, platter, or serving bowl. The argument is that metal has reactive properties that affect the delicate caviar, altering its flavor and potentially causing it to become tainted or spoiled. Additionally, metal utensils can scratch the delicate surface of the serving dish, which can alter the caviar's flavor and affect its presentation. Mother of Pearl spoon is a popular choice for serving caviar because they are non-reactive and suitable for serving caviar.

Is metal tin safe to store caviar?

Some of you may wonder why a metal spoon isn't allowed for caviar, but then why is caviar packed and sold in a metal tin?

Storing caviar in a metal tin is safe as long as the tin comes with non-reactive interior linings to prevent any adverse effects. The metal tin provides an airtight and durable container that can protect the caviar from light, air, and moisture, which can degrade the quality of the caviar. Note that once the tin is opened, we recommend transferring the caviar to a glass or other non-reactive container to maintain its quality and flavor.
