What is the proper care for culinary grade cutlery?

Check out today’s blog about how to take care of cutlery hire for events.

cutlery hire

It’s one of the elements of your event that you will probably leave until the last minute – cutlery hire. Let’s face it, it’s really not very exciting – after all, a knife is a knife and a fork is a fork, right?

Well, to a certain extent, you’d be right, though today’s event cutlery rental market is much more than just stainless steel cutlery, as it was a few years ago.

There are many types of cutlery styles around today, but it’s relatively easy to choose the best one to suit your event. What we would say, however, is that it is important that you remember to place your order well in advance, especially if you are ordering large quantities for a big event.

Also, bear in mind the time of year, as during the summer months and in the lead up to Christmas, demand for cutlery and all other tableware is at its peak. The last thing you need is to leave everything until the last minute, try to rent cutlery and then be disappointed that others have got in there before you!

It’s also fair to say that when you choose wedding cutlery hire, gold cutlery hire and other event cutlery rental, you’ll want it to be in pristine condition – after all, it’s going to be up close and personal with your diners, as is all cutlery and crockery hire, glassware and more!

Cutlery hire companies such as easyEventhire, therefore, take great steps to ensure that cutlery is well looked after. After all, maximising the longevity of a hire product is always a good thing!

Below, we take a look at some ways in which we look after our cutlery. At the same time, as a client, you can also help us with this, when you are handling our cutlery on site at your event.

Firstly, it’s important to note that cutlery is certainly not stainproof. For instance, stainless steel cutlery is stain resistant but not completely stainproof, especially when subjected to harmful chemicals and extended exposure to salt vinegar, acidic fruits and others.

And, maybe you could help us by adhering to these guidelines below:

  • As soon as possible after use, rinse cutlery with hot water to minimise the effect of salts and acids.
  • Don’t leave cutlery to soak overnight in water, as mineral salts may attack the metal surface.
  • Store and wash different metallic cutlery types separately.
  • If using in a dishwasher, remove from the appliance as soon as possible after cycle finish. Never leave cutlery for extended periods in a closed, damp dishwasher.

Ultimately, our cutlery hire products are all pretty robust, and they get regular TIC in between hires to ensure that our valued clients receive the very best cutlery, right first time, in the table-ready condition you would expect.
