Deliciously creamy butter is a roll’s best friend; help them get together with the help of a good set of butter knives among your restaurant supplies. Butter knives can also replace the dinner knife on informal place settings, especially at diners and breakfast restaurants where bread and butter is your bread and butter. Slightly smaller than dinner knives, the average butter knife falls between 5 and 7 inches in length. When setting a formal place setting, the butter knife is supposed to be placed onto the bread plate, this is located to the left of the dinner plate above the forks. Butter knives are an essential addition to your restaurant silverware or hotel silverware if you happen to serve bread and butter before the first course.
When deciding on the perfect butter knives for your restaurant silverware set, there are many factors you must consider first. First, you should decide on the silverware pattern you like, try to choose something that fits with the mood and décor of your restaurant. There is more to choosing great silverware than just picking a good silverware pattern, when selecting a set of oyster forks for your restaurant supplies or hotel silverware consider the stainless steel quality. 18/10 stainless steel and 18/8 stainless steel both contain a bit of nickel in their alloy, this means that flatware made of this type of stainless steel is much stronger, it will not easily bend or be scratched. If your restaurant needs to save a bit of money, consider a set of cocktail forks in 18/0 stainless steel, it is less durable but much more affordable and it is available in many style to suit formal, modern and casual décor.
