Eat in style: the right flatware for every occasion
Flatware must meet two needs: the aesthetic emphasis on table decoration and ergonomic design for a pleasant eating sensation. You’ll find a wide range of ZWILLING flatware and flatware sets in the ZWILLING online shop, for everyday use or for the perfect evening with friends — for 6 to 12 people.
Which cutlery belongs in a classic flatware set?
If you are setting the table for up to three courses, then you should include the following four pieces of cutlery:
- soup spoon
- dessert spoon
Every flatware set contains this cutlery. You will find, however, that some flatware sets contain five or six pieces. What’s different?
5-piece flatware sets
If you want to buy a 5-piece flatware set, besides the four usual pieces, these contain a dessert fork for firm desserts. This allows you to be flexible about which dish you cook and how you want to set the table.
What is a stand-up knife?
Are you looking for a special eyecatcher on the tabletop? Then delight your guests with a stand-up knife. You’ll find this, for example, in the BELLASERA series from ZWILLING. The knife handle forms a cavity when placed on the table, so that it stands up, with the blade touching the table. This knife is particularly easy to pick up and put down again.
Flatware design: high-quality stainless steel flatware sets, in silver and rose gold
Today’s good flatware is made from stainless steel. 18/10 stainless steel in particular shows its advantages as it is low-corrosion and impressive at first glance thanks to its high-quality design. You can buy stainless steel flatware either polished or matt. Stainless steel flatware is also easy to care for as you simply put it in the dishwasher after use. Stainless steel is resistant to acids in food and, in contrast to, say, silverware, does not change the taste of the food.
