Choosing the perfect set of stainless steel cutlery is a complex decision, because not only do we have to consider
that it looks good, but it's also important that it feels good in our hands, which is a complicated decision and
So how do you decide?
Keep reading our article on how to choose the perfect cutlery set that will make you feel comfortable and
pleasant when you use it.
Stainless steel or silver-plated cutlery?
Stainless steel cutlery is strong and durable, making it an excellent raw metal for tableware.
It is low-maintenance, hygienic, durable, resistant to oxidation at high temperatures, will not rust, and is resistant
to stains and damage from fruit acids.
Silver-plated cutlery is as hard and durable as stainless steel and is usually a more affordable option.
Both options are suitable.

Percentage of Chromium and Nickel
Premium 18/10 stainless steel is the highest quality composition for flatware.
The number 18 represents the percentage of chromium, while 10% is nickel.
Chromium is the element that makes cutlery rust resistant, while nickel gives cutlery its luster and shine and adds
to the corrosion resistance of the steel.
Although 18/10 is the highest grade of stainless steel cutlery, 18/0 composition (with negligible nickel content)
is also a suitable composition.
Keep in mind, however, that it is prone to rusting and will likely shorten its service life.
Our advice: look for cutlery with 18/10 composition whenever possible.
Weight of stainless steel cutlery
Many people don't realize that weight plays an important role in choosing cutlery.
Weight provides you with a firmer feel, resulting in balance, strength and durability.
Our advice: test the cutlery as much as possible to see how it feels in your hands.
Match your cutlery to your china
Some owners are afraid to have flatware that doesn't exactly match their china pattern.
The truth is, there is no right or wrong when it comes to matching stainless steel cutlery to a china pattern.
It's a personal choice, related to your style, not a specific rule, and whatever you like is the best stainless steel cutlery.
That being said, matching cutlery with china will give a more formal feel to a dinner party.
However, not matching your china and cutlery will add a bit of personal style to your table, just as mixing and
matching your clothes defines your personal style.
It all boils down to the look you like.
Have fun with them!
Don't let anyone else dictate what looks good on you.
Find your own style and be confident.
Stock up on tableware
Our best advice is to start with as much place settings of flatware as possible.
Usually a 4-5 piece place setting is good for a starter family, or a 20-45 piece setting is good for a large family, etc.
You may also want to add extra forks and spoons for your coffee and desserts.
Or keep a few spare pieces in case of loss and damage.
