You've probably got enough stainless steel flatware for yourself and everyone who lives in your home. But what will you do if you have a lot of guests one day? It's best to get prepared ahead of time and buy some stainless steel flatware to keep put away for when you need it. Otherwise, you may be faced with the embarrassing situation of having to serve some of your guests with plastic knives and forks. Stainless steel flatware doesn't cost a lot of money, but not having any when you need it the most will make you wish you had laid out a little more cash to buy enough of it.
