Flatware alternatives

spection | Oct 24, 2013 06:12 PM

HI all-

There are many forums on which stainless steel flatware to buy but I haven't found much on alternatives to stainless steel. I read that stainless steel is both reactive and corrosive, has some properties that can change the flavor of foods (true?) and, I know, holds heat for a long time. Plus, the 18/10 Oneida stuff I bought 3 years ago looked great out of the package but now is faded, has scratches and hardly seems presentable.

I always like the ceramic spoons I get at Asian restaurants and even the single use wooden chopsticks seem to feel better in the mouth. So, is there any sort of flatware out there made of wood or something othere stainless steel that someone would recommend?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
