Fortessa Metalware - Design & Performance
Fortessa, Inc. is a leading designer, developer, and marketer of quality tableware for high-end restaurants and hotels globally, as well as for the luxury consumer market.
Fortessa brings a passion for design and exacting standards of performance to the manufacturing of its metalware. During a meal, few things will be handled with such intimacy as flatware, and it deserves particular attention. Therefore, we specialise in heavy-gauge 18/10 stainless steel crafted with heft and balance. Our high standards of production ensure the long lasting performance of all Fortessa Metalware.
Every Fortessa flatware piece is created using heavy-gauge 18/10 stainless steel, the highest quality available for flatware. Comprised of 18% chrome and 10-12% nickel, 18/10 stainless steel offers the best resistance to corrosive agents and keeps its brilliant lustre even after years of dishwasher cleaning. The difference in heft is noticeable. Each piece is also perfectly balanced so that it simply feels right in your hand.
Fortessa offers a range of stunning designs that will enhance your dining experience. Each Fortessa flatware pattern is manufactured according to the most exacting standards, designed for elegance in 360 degrees and stamped with a hallmark for quality. Each piece is sculpted in every detail, finished even between the tines and brought to a high polish. From classic to modern to whimsical, Fortessa will make sure that your flatware is anything but flat.
Fortessa Metalware is dishwasher-safe and made to withstand use in the busiest of restaurants. However, it is recommended that certain steps be taken to ensure the longest possible life of your flatware. When handling and storing your flatware, be sure to separate by type to prevent scratching. Avoid steel wool or metal scrapers when hand-washing and abrasive cleaners when dishwashing to avoid corrosion. In the dishwasher, facing flatware with the heads facing up allows for proper washing and drying. After your metalware is cleaned, it is important to make sure it is dry before storing in order to avoid water spots, oxidation and corrosion.
