If you're running an easting establishment, chances are you have a lot of stainless steel flatware. While you'll probably rotate much of your stock throughout the day, you may also find yourself with a surplus of pieces. This isn't a bad thing; between mangled forks in the dishwasher and spoons dropped behind counters, flatware has a way of disappearing after a while.
In order to keep your stainless steel flatware in like-new shape, store pieces in felt bags. For your convenience, bag like pieces together and label the bag. Do not store in plastic or paper. This can cause discoloration and/or scratches on the surface.
