Your Preserve cutlery dispenser

Preserve's Cutlery Dispenser offers space for 400 pieces of cutlery and interchangeable chambers which allow you to configure the dispenser for your needs. All Preserve cutlery is made in the U.S.A. from 100% recycled polypropylene plastic and is BPA free.


Your dispenser will work best if it is placed on a level surface and is prevented from sliding back. Please use either a backstop (for example, up against a wall) or screw down the base. You can access the screw holes in the front of the base by removing the tray.If you choose to mount your dispenser to a wall you will need to use the wall mount. The wall mount comes with every dispenser and is secured into the back panel. If you do not need it now, please save it for later. Fully loaded the dispenser weighs about 25 lbs; please use screws and supports that fit your wall type.


Please train all operators who will load the cutlery. Handle the sleeves with care. Cutlery may fall out. No adhesive

  1. Lift off dispenser’s clear green hood and set it aside.

  3. Hold cutlery sleeve with bowl or tines facing down. Knives must face to the right.

Each chamber of the dispenser holds 115 pieces of cutlery. This is about 2 sleeves.
