Feeling Clean and Civilized Matters.
At Dining Elevated, we believe that big ideas come in small packages. Take the almighty silverware rest, for example. Also known as a knife rest, cutlery rest, fork rest, utensil rest, and the new and improved Dining Elevated Flatware Rest, these understated items have a giant impact on food safety and peace of mind.
Who knew that simply having a clean, stable, designated spot to rest and return our utensils to throughout a meal could feel SO calming, orderly and hygienic? Yet outside of the occasional chopstick rest, these items are practically unknown and almost entirely unmanufactured and unused. The reality, though, is that in between bites and over course of mealtime conversation, we all need a rest.
We need silverware rests.
But how can something so small make such a BIG difference?
When you think about it, as diners, we all have a surprisingly under-recognized psychological struggle when it comes to where to place our utensils over the course of every meal:
● Should I prop them on my plate?
● Should I set them down and soil a beautiful tablecloth?
● If no tablecloth, how clean is the table surface anyway?
This clumsy dance of silverware stashing is arguably the most un-curated and potentially unsanitary element in the world of dining. We've come so far in our foodie culture of today, and this lack of excellence in customer experience and cross-contamination prevention is simply unacceptable.
Addressing these issues with one sophisticated solution is exactly what we're inspired to do at Dining Elevated. With a single addition to today's modern table setting, the overall dining experience can be completely improved and transformed.
Another upside to offering your friends and guests flatware rests is they're guaranteed to LOVE them! They'll likely want to take some home for keeps, too. Dining Elevated flatware rests make great gifts and white-label souvenirs for enthusiastic patrons.
