As far as materials go for serving food I love 18/10 stainless steel.
I am sure you have all heard about the latest craze of using stainless steel for lunch boxes. It's because this alloy of steel is developed to be non- corrosive and it does not rust or react chemically with food not even acidic food.
The surface is non-porous so it does not absorb odors and it does not stain.
It's multifunctional, durable, oven safe, dishwasher safe and it can be used indoors as well as outside the home.
Another major point is that stainless steel is Eco-friendly. As much as 99% of all stainless steel used in industry is recycled.
In brief: 18/10 stainless steel is easy to use, good for you and good for the environment...so 18/10 stainless steel serveware is a great choice.
