About SOS Oyster Shells

The char-grilled oysters served in New Orleans have become a national favorite. Serving char-grilled oysters on their natural shell has always been a problem for professional and amateur chefs. There is a lot of labor involved in opening natural oysters, sanitizing the shells, and cooking on the natural shell. As a result, we began making our own stainless steel shells to use in our restaurant. These were so effective that we began offering them for personal use.

Stainless steel multi-use shells.  Char grill shrimp, oysters, veggies and more.

Schwing’s Oyster Shells (SOS) are large, flat bottomed, stainless steel “shells”. They are sanitary, deep enough for your “special” sauce, and easily cleaned and reused. Use them to grill oysters, shrimp, vegetables and more!

You are limited only by your imagination!
