Common Questions About Restaurant Flatware and Serveware

How do I choose my restaurant flatware, dinnerware, and glassware?

Your restaurant flatware and serveware need to complement other service pieces and tabletop accessories you may be using.

Restaurant flatware, dinnerware, and other serving items should be durable enough to handle daily use. Before making a purchase, operators should consider the durability and maintenance requirements of their particular dining room since this information will determine what material should be used.

Restaurant flatware is made of stainless steel, which is an alloy of steel, chrome, and oftentimes nickel. Depending on which combination is used, the flatware is either marked as 18/10, 18/8, 18/0, or 13/0, with each having its own unique characteristics and benefits. Dinnerware is typically made of melamine, ceramic, or fine china, while glassware is made of plastic, glass, or crystal.

Like material, construction is extremely important. Rolled edges and extra thickness reduce the risk of serveware chipping at vulnerable points. Oftentimes a foot on the bottom of dinnerware supports the dish. If this foot is polished, it protects tabletops from scratches and other marks. Some dinnerware is vitrified, meaning it has been melded together at temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Through this process, the piece becomes glossier, more durable, and less porous.

What are some essential serving items and serveware?

Pitchers are typically used to refill water, tea, juice, and soda, and are usually made of plastic, glass, or stainless steel. Clear pitchers showcase the drink to merchandise the product. If you're serving wine, a decanter or carafe is the best option.

Most restaurants need equipment for coffee and tea service. Coffee pots, teapots, and creamer pitchers are the most common pieces of coffee serveware. They help wait staff serve customers and enable customers to fix up their own drinks.

Ramekins and cups hold condiments, house-made sauces, dressings, and butter. They usually have a 2-ounce capacity but are also available in other sizes.

Dessert dishes, usually made of plastic, glass, or stainless steel, come in many shapes and sizes and are perfect for serving ice cream, cake, brownies, and milkshakes. Designed with a more distinctive shape, tulip dishes are commonly used to serve desserts and are usually large enough for one scoop of ice cream.
