The basic parameter that proves the quality of cutlery is the material from which they were made. Some time ago, the object of desire was elegant cutlery made of silver. Unfortunately, silver cutlery had many disadvantages – they were very heavy, expensive, quickly devastated and required careful care. In a modern kitchen better are light and resistant cutlery made of stainless steel. In stores we can find cutlery marked 18/0, 18/8 or 18/10. The best quality products, which exhibits the highest corrosion resistance, are models containing 18% chromium and 10% nickel. The nickel coating additionally protects the cutlery from tarnishing and scratches. High concentration of nickel is especially important for people who prefer using dishwasher.
