For over 25 years, Fortessa has offered fine drinkware and tableware, with a focus on providing thoughtfully designed, well-crafted and long-lasting products. Their choices in flatware are no exception.
The standard for determining the quality of any flatware is its constituent percentages of chromium and nickel. Chromium provides strength to utensils, as well as resistance to corrosion and rust, while nickel lends shine and luster. Stainless steel flatware is described by three ratios to indicate the relative amounts of chromium and nickel: 18/10, 18/8 and 18/0. The ratios 18/10 and 18/8 are considered the highest quality.
All Fortessa flatware has the 18/10 superior-quality rating, yielding utensils with a great “feel” in your hand—somewhat heavy, but well-balanced. They also boast a fabulous luster, which doesn’t fade even after years of being cleaned in a dishwasher.
