For a stunning splurge, there’s no better option than the Towle Silversmiths 90-Piece Hotel Flatware Service. It follows the tradition of England’s finest hotels in the 1900s, too, and its 18/10 stainless steel craftsmanship is second to none.

Want to add some color to your flatware game? The West Elm Fantasia 5-Piece Set is one of our favorites on this list from turning the stainless steel look into a fun, eclectic mood boost. You can choose from a bunch of different colors and we love its shiny finish as much as the vibrant pop it provides.
For a flatware set on a budget, we recommend the Project 62 20-Piece Stainless Steel Marsio Hammered Silverware Set. Available at Target, its handles have the most unique texture we’ve seen and it’s another set that’s equally as great for everyday use and formal dining.

From the makers of some of the best kitchen knives in the biz, JA Henckels has a 45-Piece Flatware Set that’s just as good. Specifically, it’s a hybrid of 18% chromium and 10% nickel for optimal corrosion resistance. Coupled with its timeless look, we’re all in.
How stunning is Gather by Anthropologie’s 5-Piece Streamlined Flatware. We think it’s the best value sets on this list, especially for its quality brushed gold finish and versatile design (you can pick up a few sets and it will be just around $100 total). Plus, there are other colors to choose from.
For a larger-than-life assortment of spoons, forks and knives, the Gorham 65-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set understood the assignment. It’s no-frills, brushed exterior will never go out of style, either.
