The salad fork is used in formal and dining settings. In place settings the salad fork is always placed to the left of the dinner fork. In casual place settings the salad fork is often interchangeable with a dessert fork. The shape of the salad fork is usually distinguished from the dinner fork by the thick, notched left tine. This type of left tine is used to cut through salad leaves and it also makes it easier to spear slices of vegetables. This type of fork can be used to serve salad, as well as dessert, and appetizers, add the salad fork to your restaurant silverware set and you will be adding a valuable addition to your dining supplies.
Included in most flatware sets, the salad fork is an absolute essential for your restaurant supplies. Salad forks are flatter and wider than dinner forks an they are a little shorter as well. With our extensive collections of modern, basic and formal styles, you’re sure to find the perfect salad fork for your place setting at FSW. Besides the flatware pattern you choose there are a few other considerations, mainly what stainless steel grade you need. Choose 18/10 stainless steel or 18/8 stainless steel for the strongest and most durable flatware, this type of steel has a small amount of nickel in the alloy that makes it stronger and more resistant to bending or being scratched. 18/0 stainless steel flatware is a great choice for businesses that need to save a few bucks, it won’t last as long as higher grade stainless but it is much more affordable and it still comes in many different patterns to fit nearly any décor.
