When an individual explores the realm of flatware, there are so many different things to consider. Everything from metal composition to the handle design, you will find there are thousands of options to explore. One of the best options for flatware patterns is 18/10 stainless steel flatware. This style of flatware is composed of 18% chromium content and 10% nickel content. The nickel is the portion that helps keep the shine of the flatware.
As you can see there are many options even outside of the ones discussed here to consider when looking for your new set of flatware. Hopefully you have seen that beyond looking at styles that compliment your tastes and your home décor, you should also be looking for a flatware brand name that can not only provide quality product, but also a host of guarantees to protect your investment.
No matter where you purchase or obtain your silverware, a fine name stands out. Most people purchase certain brands only for the purpose of display and some of the most sought after flatware sets are the Oneida, Sterling Silver, Reed Barton, and Lenox. All of these sets are very special in their own unique way.
One similar brand of flatware to compare is Gorham. This is a flatware provider whose legacy goes all the way back to 1831. Though it is similarly priced to Othenia, Gorham has much more of an elegant and traditional design. With Othenia being an Oneida brand, they also offer an open stock policy which Gorham does not. This means that if you were to lose a piece of your silverware from Gorham you would have to buy a complete set to replace your lost piece. With open stock you are able to buy a single piece to replace the one that has been lost without spending a fortune on an entire new set.
