When shopping for the perfect cutlery set for your home, you may have noticed a certain set of numbers used to describe the quality and grade of the stainless steel used to manufacture the cutlery. You may find yourself asking what the difference is between 18/10, 18/8 and 18/0 stainless steel, and why there are considerable price differences between different cutlery. These digits actually do matter when shopping for cutlery and it is important that you know what they mean.

The two main ingredients used to manufacture cutlery are chromium and nickel.

The numbers simply illustrate the percentage of chromium and nickel content present in the stainless steel. For example, 18/10 stainless steel means there is 18% chromium and 8-10% nickel, whilst 18/8 means 18% chromium and 1-8% nickel.

GD Products offers both, and whilst the 18/10 is most popular because of its quliaty,  we understand that keeping costs down is important too. Cutlery seems to be the item that is forever being replaced, both commercially and domestically.

We are pleased to direct you to Suppliers offering the most affordable, beautiful and up to date fashionable cutlery.
