When shopping for a great set of restaurant flatware or hotel silverware there are many factors that will impact your decision. Firstly, you must consider which silverware pattern will best fit the décor and mood of your restaurant, if you run a casual burger joint your silverware pattern will probably be vastly different from the silverware pattern that a professional caterer or hotel banquet hall would choose. Next, decide what steel grade you need. There are three different types of stainless steel flatware, 18/10 stainless steel silverware and 18/8 stainless steel silverware are the higher grade, they will resist bending or being scratched, choose this grade of flatware for a long lived and beautiful flatware set. For those with a smaller budget, there is 18/0 stainless steel silverware, restaurant knives made with this type of stainless will be a bit more flimsy than ones made of a higher grade, but they are less expensive and come in numerous beautiful patterns.
