Winter afternoons are all about lavish brunches and sparkled drinks, and if there’s stylish and chic cutlery to serve the food, there’s more reason than one to enjoy (one’s food).
With changing times not only there has been change in the style and look of décor items but kitchenware too has undergone a change in being more chic and trendy.
“Kitchenware has become more contemporary, simple and straight. While buying kitchenware, people prefer to buy easy to use and maintenance free items,” says creative director of Elvy, Vandana Khosla.
Not only durability is essential when people go for kitchenware, material too has become a pre-requisite. “The new styles in kitchenware include products in glass, porcelain, brassware, silver cutlery, non-magnetic stainless steel etc. They are earth friendly, high-tech, colourful and healthy for food preparation,” says Praveen Rao, managing director of d’Mart Exclusif.
Well! When it comes to price, well-designed kitchenware too comes in affordable price. “Nowadays exclusive and exquisite kitchenware is not only easily available but is affordable too,” says Amitabh Bendre of Evok.
Tips on what to see when buying kitchenware:
1. Check if glass is toughened and microwave rated.
2. Check if plastic is food grade and non-recycled/re-used, odorless post storage.
3. Plastic kitchenware made from 100 per cent food grade, virgin plastic ensure a lifetime guarantee against chipping/breaking and also ensure that stored food remains fresh.
