As discussed in our article about steel, the numbers 18/10 refer to the amount of chrome and nickel (respectively) in the steel alloy. These spoons are actually nickel-free, but are chrome-plated, which makes the amount of nickel in the interior alloy irrelevant.
That is, the WH-50 is a heavyweight 18/0 stainless steel spoon thatís completely chrome-plated. It makes the spoon very silvery and shiny, as well as impervious to the lack of nickel. While this cuts their cost, it doesnít cut their durability, and the high-gloss enhances their beauty.
The design of this spoon is VERY simple: one clean line with a modest curve, and no embroidery. In fact, because of its high gloss, it is good to keep the pattern very simple.
That makes the Windsor heavyweight spoon a great choice for daily use. Itsí simple pattern avoids ostentation, while itsí high gloss catches your eye. These demitasse spoons are 4.5Ē long.
