10 Easy Pieces: Everyday Stainless Steel Flatware

Janet Hall November 09, 2011

Everyday flatware might be the most frequently used household item you will ever buy (who doesn't remember the silverware of their childhood?). So it's worth investing in flatware that will endure; if you can't afford a full set, you can always build a collection place setting by place setting, as Catherine Bailey of Heath Ceramics suggests. Here are the Remodelista editors' personal favorites; also see 10 Easy Pieces: Architect-Designed Flatware.
