Buying guide about Lekoch

Find the perfect flatware for any adventure!

  • 1)Stainless steel cutlery: 18 / 10, 18 / 8 and 18/0

    Stainless steel meals come in three different ways: 18 / 10, 18 / 8 and 18 / 0. The first number refers to chrome, which is another saying "rust and stain." The second number represents the nickel content of the flatware - the more nickel, the brighter the gloss. These three options are designed for everyday use and will last a lifetime with proper care.

    2)Stainless steel tableware quality

    The quality of 18 / 10, 18 / 8 and 18 / 0 stainless steel cutlery is different, the price and composition are also very different. At first glance, on a flatware package, it may look like 18/10, but a closer look may reveal that it's actually just 18/0 flat cutlery.

    This type of flat tableware information can be very deceptive, and it's no wonder that the price looks so good. This is actually a marketing strategy, and if these flat cutlery specifications are completely missing, then this product may not be stainless steel at all. If you are in the flat tableware market, be sure to understand the differences and implications of stainless steel cutlery.

    18/10 stainless steel cutlery means 18% is chromium and 10% is nickel. The higher the nickel content, the less protected the flatware from corrosion. The price of stainless steel cutlery varies greatly depending on these specifications and quality, so if the nickel content is 0%, don't be fooled into thinking that you are buying the highest quality.

    However, some tableware manufacturers will mark the tableware as having a nickel content of less than 8%, for example 8.3% is 18/10, because it is not suitable for the 18/8 category, and such a label is completely permissible, but a bit deceptive, although in this way.

    It should be noted that even the best stainless steel cutlery can occasionally pitting and corrode if not properly cared for. Dishwasher cleaners tend to be rough on stainless steel cutlery, sometimes causing blemishes. These can usually be removed with stainless steel cleaners, but sometimes it is not possible to remove pitting, debris or rust.

    3)Stainless steel tableware quality craft

    Forged flatware consists of a continuous sheet of metal that is heated to an extremely high temperature and then hand-formed to form a clean, simple pattern with a heavier feel.

    Stamped tableware refers to a pattern that is "embossed" on a continuous sheet of metal. The result is a flat tableware with a strong weight that doesn't feel too heavy

    4)Stainless steel cutlery set

    Stainless steel cutlery sets come in many different services. Although some people have 20 or fewer, others have 65 or more. The number of pieces depends primarily on the number of people you want to use. If you have a small family, then buying less pieces of tableware may be the best option. However, if you want a cutlery set for a family gathering or occasion, consider a suit that contains many parts.

    Five pieces of dinner set

    One-person services include salad forks, forks, knives, spoons and teaspoons.

    Twenty pieces of set meal

    The four-person service includes four salad forks, dinner forks, knives, spoons and teaspoons.

    5)Stainless steel cutlery selection

    Don't ignore this when choosing stainless steel cutlery. Some suits are heavy and you can't hold them for long periods of time; therefore, just consider things that look comfortable. In addition, you should not forget the aesthetic look, as these suits should enhance the visual appeal of your kitchen or restaurant.

    How does it feel:

    Pretend to cut with a knife and fork to see if it is comfortable. Determine weight, substance and strength. Also consider the size and contour of the spoon bowl.

    Choose the appearance:

    With its sparkling form and artistry, cutlery is like a piece of jewelry on a table. Lekoch offers more than cutlery, from fashion and modern to classic or formal. Many of our models are suitable for special occasions and casual meals. Or keep two sets - one for daily use and one for formal dinner.
