OR Polished & Sealed
traditional, caribbean detached “coaster style” stand
OR a customary attached stand
Our detached “coaster” style stand is perfect if you want some true traditional Caribbean flair & style for your meal or drinks party and these shells can safely go in the dishwasher without damage.
Our raw or polished shells with attached stands are more convenient and customary, using natural, food safe adhesive to attach the stands, but these are best if hand washed.
WASHING & MAINTAINCE
After each wash, like many other wooden kitchen items, please rub coconut oil (or any long lasting, non-rancid oil) inside and outside the cup to keep it moist and in good condition. Hand wash only with gentle soap. All our coconut shells can go in the dishwasher if they are properly oiled and maintained but the attached stands may fall off after a few washes, especially in really hot water, so …. best to wash by hand.
SIZE & FINISH
All Coconut Shell’s are sealed on the inside with our Coconut Oil. Our polished shells are sealed on the outside too with coconut oil.
The size of natural coconuts varies but, most of our pretty coconut shells are approximately 4″ round x 2.5″ high and will hold about up to ~6 oz , 170 grams or nearly 3/4 cup measure.
If ordering multiples, please add a note to your order if you’d prefer your shells match. We’ll get as close as we possibly can with such an organic product but often two coconut shells that look nothing alike can hold the same amount AND two coconut shells that look quite similar may not hold the same amounts. So … be specific if you can.
