Here at the Cutlery Review we are big fans of Fortessa Flatware.
Fortessa tableware is used by over 70% of the Forbes Four and Five-Star Hotels in North America. Fortessa flatware is made from heavyweight 18/10 stainless steel, the highest quality available for flatware. The company Fortessa has a great backstory:
“Some of our happiest memories happen around the table – shared stories, savory meals, warm laughter. And sometimes, as was the case for brothers Scott and Eric Hamberger, devising a plan to follow their entrepreneurial passion and start a family business. So, in 1993 after finding inspiration in the quality and craftsmanship of fine German porcelain, the Hamberger brothers started importing and selling high quality dinnerware direct out of their parents’ garage.”
This new set “Fortessa Bistro” came to our attention recently. It has a simple elegance. Made of 18/10 dishwasher safe stainless steel this 20 piece set includes 4 each of a table fork, salad/dessert fork, table knife, dessert/soup spoon, and a coffee/tea spoon. The design features a banded cuff at the base and top of each handle.
