Charger Plates

A charger plate, also known as a charger dish, service plate, or underplate, is a plate that's primarily used for fine dining decor and to help retain heat from other dinnerware. For example, placing your fresh, hot entree plate on a charger platter helps the upper plate and pieces of food on it stay warm for guests at your restaurants or at your formal parties and banquets. They also come in a variety of colors, designs, and patterns, so you can choose the best ones to match the rest of your table setting.

FAQ's


A charger plate is a large decorative plate that acts as a base place setting that you place other dinnerware, like soup bowls, plates, and trays, on top of. Charger plates are also called service plates, under plates, and chop plates. Though not meant to come into direct contact with food, they are typically used in formal dinner service settings, such as weddings, upscale parties, and fine dining restaurants. They're also much more than simple table decor.


A charger plate can be used as a dining accessory in place of a placemat, helping to protect your tablecloth from spills, crumbs, and other messes. During formal meals, you can also place name cards, napkins, or menu cards on top of a charger plate. The use of charger plates is also an elegant way to serve multiple course meals as they remain on the table while replacing bowls and plates in between courses. You can even place floral centerpieces and other dining decor options on top of the charger if it matches your tablescape.

Charger plates are great for setting a stylish dining experience, and they come in a variety of colors, sizes, and materials. These different styles make it easy for you to elevate your table settings. You can also find different shapes, like round charger plates and square charger plates to compliment your table and dishes.


Even if you have simple white dinnerware, the right charger plates can help you set the tone for the occasion. A gold or silver charger plate, for example, is best to use during formal occasions with catering, corporate celebrations, or anniversary parties. Glass and antique charger plates, on the other hand, fit romantic settings like weddings or intimate restaurants. For more information on gold charger plates for your wedding check out our buyers guide: Gold Charger Plates for Weddings - Buyer's Guide & Top Recommendations. Whatever event you're catering to or what restaurant you're running, you can find the right charger plates in bulk or wholesale here at TigerChef.

Choosing the best charger plates for your restaurant, catering service, or event is largely a matter of taste, but there are a few characteristics of chargers that you can keep an eye out for. Unlike the average dinner plate, most charger plates are hand wash only, but we do offer some dishwasher safe chargers at TigerChef if this level of convenience is important to you. Look out for porcelain or ceramic materials.


You'll also want to look out for the right dimensions to serve the meals you're preparing. If you're planning to fit many salad plates or soup bowls on the same charger, for example, you'll want a large diameter, like our 13" to 14" chargers. Experiment with a few different charger dishes to find creative ways to use them in your formal settings.
