Crazy for Cutlery

Restaurants are made up of a ton of moving parts and some aspects can easily fall to the wayside without even knowing it. You might think that cutlery mainly refers to knives, but it involves all flatware in your restaurant. And there’s so many different types of knives—I mean a dessert knife and a fruit knife, really?—that choosing which ones are a necessity for your restaurant might be harder than you think. Here are some tips when choosing the right cutlery for your restaurant:

Knives

Dinner knives, steak knives, fish knives, etc., which to choose! Dinner knives are probably essential if you’re running a sit down restaurant, and steak knives are probably a close second. Dinner knives are used to cut and push food on the plate, and steak knives are similar. Steak knives can be serrated or non-serrated—it depends on preference and what you’re serving—and can be used in place of a dinner knife. 

Spoons

Obviously spoons transfer the food from your plate to your mouth—a necessity if we’ve ever heard one! There are teaspoons, tablespoons, soup spoons, dessert spoons, and many more, so which do you choose for your restaurant? If you serve coffee and tea at your restaurant, and you’re a sit down place, you should invest in teaspoons because they're meant to stir sugar and cream into your coffee and tea. Tablespoons are the other ever-popular spoon to invest in because these spoons are for bigger dishes served from serving bowls.

Forks

Last, but certainly not least—forks! There’s a fork for dinner, salad, dessert, and fish! While it seems that a dinner fork will probably be able to cover all those needs, if you’re a running a sophisticated establishment, you should at least have a separate fork for salads and dinners!

While you might not find the type of cutlery you invest in important, there are customers that care! The only thing you can do is to make sure that you're choosing the right type of cutlery for the type of restaurant you run! Check out some of our cutlery here: https://www.restaurantsupply.com/restaurant-smallwares!
