I am relatively new as a host only starting in March this year. My location is a 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bathroom apartment entirely used for Airbnb. I don’t live there. When I started I remembered my own experiences as a guest and took some of their better ideas. For example I provide a welcome light breakfast of bread people can toast, butter a selection of jams and cereal.
Given the current awareness of safety I always use cereal in single serve sealed packets and jams in single serve packets. Single serve containers does limit the choice you can provide but appears to be safer.
I am now wondering if I should buy some nice jam jars and fill them up with a better selection each time I guests arrive. My question is if you were a guest and saw jams in a jar that we’re not manufactured sealed would you be hesitant to use them?
Similarly if I bought a selection of cereals and put them in cereal containers, would you as a guest feel hesitant in using them?
I recall on one time the host provided home cooked muffins and croissants and jams in jars. I had no hesitation in using them but perhaps I’m more trusting? Then of course if you’re sharing a room in a house often the host will say feel free to use the food in the refrigerator which isn’t always new from the supermarket.
Just wonder what other hosts think of this?
