18/10 Stainless Steel Tableware vs 18/0 Tableware


wKhQt1N1i3uEWok6AAAAAGWeOpY628 (2)

When choosing stainless steel tableware for your catering company, restaurant or party rental, understanding what makes up the tableware and its pros and cons is important. It helps an owner understand how to care for the cutlery and how often they should be looking at replacing it. Tableware typically comes in 18/10, 18/8, 18/0 and 13/0 compositions. The most common type of composition found in rental situations, restaurants and catering functions is 18/10 and 18/0 and is what the basis of this news post is on.

18/10 stainless steel tableware and 18/0 stainless steel tableware is made up of Chromium and Nickel. The ''18" number refers to the percentage of Chromium in the stainless steel tableware. Chromium is a strong durable metal that resists stains, rust and corrosion. The ''10" or ''0" number is the percentage of nickel in the tableware. Nickel is a corrosion resistant metal that is very expensive and often used for its shine and luster. For casual restaurants or high volume events restaurants, choosing an 18/0 cutlery will work well with its soft sheen and economic value. Higher end fine dining restaurants or rental companies who service a luxury clientele will be happier with 18/10 tableware for its high shine and stain resistance. Below outlines some of the pros and cons of each tableware type.

18/10 Tableware:

High polish finish

More costly than 18/0 due to nickel

18/0 Tableware:
