The use of dining sets
Dinnerware isn’t just for dinner parties, as they say. Dinnerware refers to a set of plates, bowls, spoon and fork or simply put it refers to dishes. Dishes are used for eating and serving food. A person who likes to cook and adores food wants his dishes to be useful and last longer. We will review the different types of dinnerware available today.
There are times when cutlery is not only used for serving food or eating. Sometimes it is locked in a cabinet properly arranged with a specially designed rack to hold them in place. When I went to my grandmother’s house for my birthday, I went to her kitchen to help her prepare the food. I saw many plates and bowls, different types and designs of spoons and forks, all displayed in a beautiful antique wooden cabinet. I asked her if I could wash those dishes and use them for the guests. She strongly disagreed and said these plates were valuable and never used and only for display because it was her collection and worth a fortune.
In addition to displaying expensive plates in the cabinets, a chef, for example, wants his tableware to be durable or depending on the event and its use. Paper plates, for example, are more convenient and affordable for a picnic than using a ceramic plate, which is heavy. Ceramic plates on the other hand are used for display or on special occasions like a formal dinner. Our ancestors used carved stone or wood as a plate. Although stones are no longer used today, but wooden plates are still used in some restaurants to go with the theme. Plastic dishes are more popular today in most households because they are durable, cheaper, and easier to wash.
Also, the spoon and fork are usually made of plastic or metal. Plastic spoon and fork, like paper plates, are used at picnics and parties because they are lighter and more convenient. Metal spoon and fork are used in the household and restaurants. Some restaurants do not provide a spoon and fork, or they are Chinese or Japanese restaurants, or they want their food to be eaten with your hands. Today there is a more modern utensil which is a combination of a spoon and a fork which they call a spork. A spork looks more like a spoon but has spikes on the end.
Tableware or tableware these days have different shapes and types that serve different purposes. So, make sure that if you are buying one, it should suit your needs whether it will be used or just for display.
