The Wirecutter has always been an amazing website for product reviews and advice. I was a little worried when the NY Times bought them but they continue to be wonderful.
They have an amazing page called “How to Choose Flatware According to the People Who Design and Make It” and boy oh boy does it cover everything. If you are looking to buy cutlery or just want to learn more about the construction this is the site for you.
The article is so full of info it needs a Table of Contents, check it out:
This is our favorite quote: “A single five-piece flatware setting (meaning a salad fork, a dinner fork, a knife, a soup spoon, and a teaspoon) can cost anywhere from a few dollars for stainless steel to well over a thousand dollars for sterling silver.”. Something we see here at The Cutlery Review everyday and try to help you with.
This is one of the less used but most valued items in our kitchen. The weight and balance are wonderful. Not great for teflon pans but perfect for everything else. And especially good for making the infamous “Pasta Aglio e Olio” also from “Chef” as below:
The 7-Inch Messermeister Park Plaza Forged Carving Fork is made of German 1.4116 high-carbon stainless steel. And it has a lifetime warranty against material and manufacturing defects. And did we mention it’s forged steel?
Well, that’s a nice family portrait of cutlery isn’t it? They call this a starter set and I’d say it’s a start to a large family and an adventure (pun intended). The International Silver Adventure is a flatware setting for 8 people. This includes a hostess set that consists of a large tablespoon, 1 pierced tablespoon and 1 cold meat fork (what would make it a hot meat fork?). The full set includes salad forks, dinner forks, dinner knives, dinner spoons and teaspoons.
It’s made of 18/0 stainless steel and is a good price for a complete set to fit a new kitchen.
It’s the end of 2015 and 2016 is barging in whether we want it to or not. We’ve taken a look at what were the most popular posts in the last year and wanted to highlight them. So let’s start at the top:
In first place by a huge margin is anything even remotely related to Nutella. It is such a popular topic on this blog that we even made a category for Nutella. And the shown Nutella knife (or Spife) was the top of the charts. You people are crazy for Nutella.
In second place is the Artaste Rain Stainless Steel Flatware which a lot of people really liked and the feedback after purchasing was quite good. And I have to say this is one of the nicer and better staged photos for cutlery that we’ve seen in a long time.
