Once you have the cutlery set of your dreams, one can follow these simple guidelines to ensure that it is always used correctly (these tips include some basic table manners to boot):
- Cakes can be eaten by hand, but only if they are large enough. Small chunks must be scooped up with a cake fork.
- When eating a watermelon at the table, use a spoon. Place the seeds in your hand and then plonk them on the side of your plate when finished.
- Looking to keep your cutlery set incredibly shiny? Rubbing a cork on them (a real cork, not the plastic versions) will restore their lustre in no time at all. Scouring your cutlery with salt and a wet cloth is also a decent way to keep silver clean.
- For cutlery that is to be used often, stick with stainless steel, and only bring out the best cutlery for important occasions.

For Best Care of Cutlery..
Only ever place 18/10 stainless steel cutlery in the dishwasher, if your cutlery is not 18/10 then you must hand wash it otherwise the cutlery will corrode over time. Always Rinse off excess food stuff in advance of placing cutlery in the dishwasher. Once the cycle is over please remove cutlery from the dishwasher immediately and dry off any wet water spots and put away. Never leave just washed cutlery in the dish washer over long periods of time. To really care for your cutlery we would recommend hand washing in hot soapy water and hand dry.
