Smaller than tablespoons and dessert spoons, teaspoons are used in informal dining settings for pretty much anything. They can be used to stir coffee, sip soup, eat ice cream or anything else that involves a viscous substance that will slip through the tines of a fork. FSW offers teaspoons from the top restaurant supply manufacturers in the industry. The styles we offer give restaurants a large palate to choose from. Surprisingly, this ubiquitous piece of restaurant cutlery was first mentioned in 1686 in the London Gazette, that’s about three hundred years after the advent of the modern spoon itself, making the restaurant teaspoon a relatively historic addition to your restaurant supplies.
In either a formal or informal place setting, teaspoons fit between the tablespoon and the dinner knife on the right hand side of the plate. Teaspoons are also a unit of measure, but don’t use your restaurant tablespoons to measure out baking ingredients or the like, because the size varies quite a bit from a measuring teaspoon. When shopping for silverware for your restaurant, don’t forget to decide on the pattern you like, the steel grade and the size of the spoon you need. In this section you will be able to choose from 18/10 silverware, 18/8 silverware and 18/0 silverware that are the perfect addition to the flatware collection of any restaurant or hotel.
