When selecting your tableware you will likely be considering the quality of the items you need, when it comes to cutlery the quality of the stainless steel is what sets each range apart. For the best quality available, look for fully forged 18/10 stainless steel, these sets will be quite expensive but are made from a single piece of steel. Maxwell & Williams utilise 18/10 stainless steel, the result is a stronger, more scratch resistant final product. Most commonly you will find that 18/8 or 18/0 steel is used, this is still high-quality stainless steel but it will not be as scratch resistant as 18/10 stainless steel.
