When browsing dinnerware sets, you need to pay attention to the materials.
Most sets are made of stainless steel, which is usually durable and usually dishwasher safe.
Ideally, it should be marked 18/10, which means the stainless steel contains 18 percent
chromium and 10 percent nickel to prevent rust and corrosion.
Another option is silver-plated flatware.
This usually means that the parts are made of steel, brass or copper with a thin silver coating.
Silver-plated flatware can mimic the look of sterling silver while providing the same
durability as stainless steel.
There are many different styles of flatware on the market with modern designs with
round heads and thin handles, faded styles that exude farmhouse charm,
vintage (or retro-style) silverware with intricate patterns, and everything in between.
In addition to shapes, plated appliques and engravings, flatware is available in a variety
of colors and finishes.
In addition to silver, black, bronze and gold are available, as well as matte finishes
and mirror-like sheens.
When shopping around for flatware, you also need to pay attention to quantity.
Most sets come with 20 pieces and include four dinner forks, four salad/dessert forks,
four soup/dinner spoons, four teaspoons and four butter/dinner knives.
However, some services only include one for one person, which means you only get
one of each and will need to order multiple sets, which can drive up the price.
Then there are larger sets, which can include service for 6, 8, 10, 12 or more people.
Consider your needs and go from there.
How should you care for your dishes?
Dishes can be washed in the dishwasher or by hand, just like your other dishes,
flatware and cutlery.
If you are washing by hand, we recommend towel drying or placing your hands face
down on a drying rack.
For everyday sets, Infull recommends something dishwasher safe because you'll be
washing it every day.
Be sure to put the parts with the handles facing down in the dishwasher for better
cleaning results and to avoid dulling the heads.
How many sets of utensils should you buy?
If you have enough space in your kitchen, I highly recommend that you have two sets of dishes.
The most important set is your everyday cutlery, which usually consists of forks,
knives and spoons.
Then for more formal occasions, I would choose silverware like your grandmother's
that you only bring out for dinner parties or special occasions.
How can I tell if my flatware is real silverware?
To determine if your flatware is real sterling silver and not silver plated or stainless steel,
start by polishing it with a soft white cloth that is not abrasive.
Sterling silver will leave a slight black mark on the white fabric.
This is due to a chemical reaction (oxidation) of the silver with oxygen, resulting in
a bronze color, whereas stainless steel does not leave marks.
