How to choose my restaurant flatware?

Your restaurant flatware needs to be able to handle the anticipated use level. If you'll be washing the flatware in your dish machine, it needs to be strong enough to withstand the heat and chemicals. Some patterns are designed to reduce the visibility of scratches and other signs of daily use, and because restaurant flatware is usually the first item customers interact with after seating, weight should be a consideration when choosing pieces. Most customers equate heavyweight materials with quality.

The appearance of restaurant flatware is important since it needs to complement your existing dinnerware and tabletop accessories. When choosing flatware, ask yourself: Does it fulfill a purpose? Each piece should be essential to the operation and easy for customers to use. Cost should be considered during the initial purchase of the items, but also take into account how much the anticipated replacements will cost since restaurant flatware is often mishandled, stolen, and damaged.

What is restaurant flatware made of?

Stainless steel is made of chrome, steel, and sometimes nickel. Using chrome gives restaurant flatware strength, while nickel adds rust resistance and the silver look that is popular with these pieces. Flatware is made of a mix of these materials. The three common compositions are explained below, so you can choose the best option for your application.

  • 18/10 stainless steel flatware contains 18 percent chrome and 10 percent nickel to create the highest grade material, which customers expect to find in high-end operations. It is almost completely resistant to rusting and bending.
  • 18/8 stainless steel flatware contains 18 percent chrome and 8 percent nickel, for a shinier and more resistant material than 18/0 stainless steel. Mirror, matte, and silver-plated finishes are most common with this material.
  • 18/0 stainless steel flatware contains 18 percent chrome and 0 percent nickel. It is a more economical option than 18/10 and 18/8 flatware, so it is easier to replace and is popular with operators adhering to a tight budget.

How to maintain my restaurant flatware?

Restaurant flatware is generally simple to use and relatively easy to maintain because most pieces are dishwasher safe. Drying flatware immediately after it's washed keeps it shiny and spotless. Bleach may cause steel to pit, corrode, or stain. Restaurant flatware will also begin to discolor and corrode if it's soaked for long periods of time with other metals. Magnetic flatware retrievers keep these pieces out of the trash, but 18/10 and 18/8 restaurant flatware is not magnetic, so it may accidentally be thrown away.
