Shop Flatware by Type

There is such a wide range and variety of restaurant flatware ranging from intricately carved to simpler styles. Since almost all restaurant flatware is made from stainless steel, understanding the various types of stainless steel is crucial to choosing the perfect style for your establishment. Most stainless steel utensils are mixed with other metals like nickel and chromium. The amount of nickel or chromium included is vital to know. Most flatware is marked with fractions to help you determine the metal content in each flatware piece. For example, 18/10 flatware denotes 18% of the flatware is chromium, and 10% is nickel. Since chromium makes steel stronger, the higher the percentage of chromium means your flatware will last longer, and higher nickel prevents rusting.
