Did You Know There Are 14 Kinds Of Spoon?

Lost and Confused Signpost

Have you ever been invited to a really fancy restaurant and been lost with the rules? Maybe you would like to host a fancy or themed dinner party but it seemed a lot of work?


Cutlery can get complicated– for example each of the fourteen spoons has a different use – the obvious teaspoon, to the obscure five o clock spoon which is apparently for afternoon tea.  Then there’s the place setting and the etiquette – just remember with cutlery work from the outside inwards, course by course. Worst case you can bring this along:


Another thing that can get confusing is which cutlery to even buy – should you impress with silver or invest in stainless steel?  When it comes to flatware, some metals require more care than others. Sterling silver and silver plate tarnish, whereas stainless steel is comparatively easy to care for. Sterling silver cutlery is easily cared for using vinegar, bicarbonate of soda, olive oil or lemon juice.


Regarding pricing, stainless steel can vary depending on quality i.e. nickel content. This is shown by the depiction 18/10, 18/8 or 18/0 where the second number is the nickel percentage – the higher it is the better quality. So ultimately stainless steel cutlery can give both the finish and affordability you need for your big night.


Shanghai Metal manufactures high quality stainless steel cutlery at competitive prices. Stainless Steel Cutlery and Flatware is designed for the modern household and today’s modern lifestyle. Casual dining is at the core of the stainless steel cutlery collection, which is composed of 304 unique stainless steel pieces.
