High quality design flatware sets

Mastering the art of table setting is a luxury that Sambonet makes possible with its vast assortment of tableware. Made of the highest quality and with notable Italian good taste, each flatware set is a masterpiece. Sambonet continually brings art, tradition, craftsmanship and high quality to your table. More modern flatware sets like the Conca Gio Ponti stainless steel place setting or the Deco silverplated place setting take center stage on a modern black marble tabletop, while a carved wooden table can be adorned by something a little more classic like the Rome stainless steel set. With more than fifty flatware sets to choose from, there is the perfect fit for everyone.

Silverplated vs. Stainless Steel flatware sets

Most all Sambonet flatware sets are available in either a silverplated or stainless steel version. What’s the difference between silverplated and stainless steel? The silverplated flatware sets are made with an exclusive Sambonet silverplating process that covers the stainless steel item with a layer of silver to prevent corrosion and add a lustrous shine. The purity of the silver is 999.5% and with Sambonet’s special technique, the silverplated layer is two times harder than regular silverplated pieces and four times more resistant to sulfur. Both the silverplated and stainless steel versions are unique and of the highest quality. Choosing which flatware set you prefer depends on your taste and your table. Both can be used for daily use or the most special of occasions.

What makes up a 5-piece setting in a flatware set?

Special cutlery and steak knives aside, the most fundamental table setting is made up of five important pieces. Two spoons, two forks and a dinner knife:

  1. Salad Fork
  2. Dinner Fork
  3. Dinner Knife
  4. Soup Spoon
  5. Tea spoon / Coffee Spoon

Offering everything from modern flatware sets to gourmet settings flatware, Sambonet has something to fit every kind of lifestyle. Whether you are looking for a 45 piece flatware set or flatware sets for 12, each 5-piece place setting is artfully created with the highest quality materials and superior techniques. Almost all of the flatware sets allow you to choose between a solid or hollow handle for the knife. All sets have a bright polished finish and a firm, sturdy feel and weight.

Maintaining your flatware set

When maintaining the value and beauty of your modern flatware sets or gourmet settings flatware, Sambonet suggests to follow these pieces of advice:

  • To preserve the brightness of the silver, the item must be cleaned by soaking the product in warm water and a mild dish detergent. After rinsing and drying, use a silver polishing cream or spray to provide an invisible protective layer. This ensures that surfaces stay clean longer.
  • Do not use chlorine containing detergents like bleach (sodium hypochlorite). They can damage the stainless steel.
  • Use a soft and clean cloth to wipe surfaces. Avoid vigorous rubbing and abrasive cleaning products.
  • Do not let spoons, knives or forks come in contact with hard or abrasive surfaces as it may cause scratching.
