Since most manufacturers now outsource their production to China, it is difficult to find high-quality flat software. Even so, some manufacturers have made the decision to go against the trend. To maintain their quality, they instead stay in their native countries or outsource to countries other than China. In this article, we will introduce to you the best flatware not made in China.
The Coolest Flatware Not Made In China
Annapolis by Liberty Tabletop
There aren’t many problems with this flatware not made in China (and the near-perfect ratings on Amazon attest to this). This is one of Liberty Treetop’s best-selling product lines, crafted with the finest raw materials supplied from the USA and manufactured using the same meticulous manufacturing techniques and machines that have been used. Used for many years to produce the best Oneida underwear made in the USA.
Unlike Chinese manufacturers, they do not use harmful chemicals, oils or lubricants in their production, which improves the lives of workers and the environment in the periphery. their New York umbrella.
If “Annapolis” isn’t the design for you, they have a wide selection that is manufactured to a high standard.

Another well-known flatware not made in China is this one. It was recently featured as one of the top products that Wirecutter reviewed. I was pleased to learn that Wirecutter acknowledged the Oneida “soul” imbued throughout each of these implements.
Ginkgo International Simple
The Ginkgo International Simple Flat Suite is, as its name suggests, proof that sometimes it’s best to keep things simple.
The Simple is the perfect choice for individuals who want to add a touch of elegance to every meal without necessarily going over budget. It has a simple modern design with square terminals and straight handles.
Simple has considerable weight although the quality of 18/0 stainless steel is inferior to that of 18/10 or 18/8 stainless steel.
From there it looks like the manufacturers didn’t cut corners. Another sign that Simple can cause a lot of damage is the fact that the manufacturers also claim that Made in Korea products are safe to use in the dishwasher.
The Simple, with its most expensive configuration, has enough service for 8 people along with two sturdy serving spoons for the hostess. This flatware not made in China is reasonably priced, especially given how lovely it looks.
Christofle Essential 24-Piece Flatware Set
Christofle Mood ensures that your flat tableware will always please your guests and never go out of style as it is possibly the most beautiful flat tableware not made in China—and certainly one of the best. most expensive price.
The Essential, made in France, includes six complete sets of tableware.
The fact that this flatware not made in China comes with a uniquely beautiful mirror polished stainless steel cylinder case is what really makes it stand out.
Not only does this make flatware storage simpler, but the container also improves the look and feel of the overall set. In addition, the interior is made of white oak with plastic cutlery forks, ensuring that the cutlery will last as long as you own.
Christofle Essential is a must-have if price isn’t your concern.
Caesna Mirror Flatware Set
If none of the Liberty Tabletop models work for you, the Crate & Barrel is a great alternative. Unlike Amazon’s website, Crate & Barrel makes each set’s country of origin pretty clear. They deserve further investigation just for that (because, in case you haven’t guessed, Amazon intentionally withheld this information).
There are a total of 1,077 reviews for this set by British designer Robert Welch, five times the total for any other not made in China flatware they sell. Even more striking is the average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars for the reviews. Because of its simple design, satin finish, excellent weight distribution, and clean lines, many people love this set. Robert Welch has also created several beloved flat-wear collections for Crate & Barrel, including the Foster satin, Stanton satin and Iona mirror lines.
Robert Welch models such as the Westbury, Kingham, Whitby, Flute and Aaron are available at Williams-Sonoma and have received equally brilliant reviews.
These lines are all made in Vietnam, whether you buy from Crate & Barrel or Williams-Sonoma.
Scoop Flatware Place Set
This flatware not made in China is one of my favorites on Crate & Barrel and has another excellent rating and reviews. This set includes elegant tips in 18/10 stainless steel, mirrored finishes, and graceful dimpled handles. It was created in Vietnam and is suitable for both formal and informal occasions.
Of course, you should browse the entire Crate & Barrel catalog as there are many other highly-rated designs available. You are sure to discover a great non-China alternative that catches your interest. Made in Vietnam, Grand Hotel II has a recognizable classic look. The Aero Black is built in Portugal and boasts a sleek, modern European design. The Uptown has an easy grip and is as thin as a pencil.
Fortessa Royal Pacific Flatware Set
Williams-Sonoma, which like Crate & Barrel highlights the country of origin of most of their products, is another great alternative to Amazon. The majority of the sets at Williams-Sonoma come from Vietnam (13), Indonesia (10), France (10), Italy (7) and India (3), with only a small number (4) coming from China. This surprised me.
This was created exclusively for Williams-Sonoma by an Indonesian manufacturer. This flatware not made in China is made of 18/10 stainless steel and has a distinct bamboo-like pattern. I especially like how the bamboo pattern gives each piece a bit of weight while still being fashionable.
Laguiole 28-Piece Flatware Set, Wood
This 28-piece flat knife set originates from the Laguiole region of France, which is famous for its expertly manufactured knives. Okay, this is starting to sound a bit ridiculous. The designs showcase six different hardwoods harvested in France and in the same style that Laguiole en Aubrac has used since 1829. (olive, juniper, plum, apple, cedar yang and walnut). Spending a few hundred bucks more you can get handles made from polished animal horns, which is insane.
Christofle Essential 24-Piece Stainless Steel Flatware Set
This is another expensive French alternative. The French silverware and food manufacturer Christofle was founded in 1830. Their stores are located in high-end boutiques and shopping malls. You will not be able to ignore this brand when looking for high-end flatware not made in China.
