When one is hungry the colour or design of the plate, spoon or fork does not hold much significance except as a tool for eating. But experiments show that food is relished more by adults and children when the cutlery is bright and attractive. Warm colors like yellow and red are able to capture attention of people easily and even food product manufacturers package their products in these colours. Research also shows that while street food can be relished better with warm colourful spoons in red and yellow, expensive food like caviar or cheese will taste better when eaten off the tip of a silver spoon or fork.
The beauty and class of ceramic flatware is timeless and even after being used for centuries it is treasured by owners.
