Stainless Steel – Most of the tableware we use today is made of stainless steel. This is done with different combinations of steel, chrome and nickel depending on the grade of stainless steel. The best stainless steel is 18/8, which means 18% chrome and 8% nickel. However, most of the best tableware are made with the 18/10 combination. Stainless steel can be molded very well and thus the variety of stainless steel designs is almost endless. Many people like classic designs like Debary tableware or Harley tableware, but there are also some modern designs.
Silver Plated Plating – This is commonly used to prepare tableware for special occasions such as wedding tableware for use in high-end restaurants. Silver plated tableware is made by electronically combining silver with a high quality base metal. Therefore, it is slightly more expensive than stainless steel, but can last significantly longer if looked at carefully.
