Make Walco your preferred brand when it comes to high quality, durable stainless steel flatware. There are varieties from casual to formal and classic to modern. Take a look at the different designs today to figure out what patterns would be best for your establishment.
When selecting your flatware from Walco, you will need to choose not only the patterns, but the steel quality. Walco makes only 18/0 or 18/10 quality stainless steel so that you can be guaranteed a premium piece of flatware. The numbers in 18/10 and 18/0 stainless steel represent the amount of chromium and nickel as a percentage. For example, 18/10 stainless steel is composed of 18 percent chromium and 10 percent nickel. In order for a product to be labeled as stainless steel, there must be a minimum of 10 percent chromium in the mixture. The higher these numbers, the higher the corrosion resistance of the metal.
The highest quality of stainless steel available is 18/10 because of the added nickel which is another combatant in the war on rust and corrosion. 18/0 steel is actually somewhat misleading since the zero simply means there is no nickel in the stainless composition. While this means that it is less corrosion resistant, it is still a very high quality of stainless.
