Silver is one of the expensive metals used by the humans, it has become a passion and interest and more than anything else a way for wealthy people to show off by using flatware. Take for example the dinner hosted by people belonging to the rich and the higher classes, most of these parties comprises of cutlery made of Silver flatware. It is a classic example to show off their wealth to the guests and the position of the host.
Some things to never wash in the dishwasher are hollow handled knives, or anything made of brass, bronze, copper, gold colored or pewter flatware in the dishwasher. And though both silver plate and stainless steel can be washed in the dishwasher, never mix them in the same load! The stainless steel flatware creates a chemical reaction that causes staining on the silver plate.
Another impressive Towle stainless flatware set is the 20-piece Wave flatware that is priced a little higher, at about $57. This one has more weight than the previous design, which gives it a very classic and vintage effect. It is dishwasher safe and is made of high grade stainless steel. The Towle Silversmiths Royal Medallion is another popular design in the Towle stainless flatware collection, and is priced at $220. This boxed set comes with a total of 45 pieces and is great for formal use as well as everyday use. This set includes dinner knives, dinner forks, teaspoons, soup spoons and dessert spoons. Other items included are various pieces from the hostess set.
When shopping for flatware, it is said that one of the main things to keep in mind is that the flatware you choose should be able to last for many years and, if possible, even lifetimes. Also, since most flatware you purchase will be used for almost daily meals with your family and friends, it is suggested that one should take time to invest in a quality, sterling silver special occasion set that you feel confident that can last for generations. Just like any purchase, a great deal of time and careful thinking should be spent into your next your purchase of flatware.
