Medium Weight vs. Heavy Weight Cutlery

While browsing CiboWares’ selection of single-use flatware, you may have come across the terms “medium weight” and “heavy weight.” There are many factors to consider when choosing the right cutlery for your needs. This handy guide overviews the various differences between the two options.

Medium Weight

Cost-effective and economical, our medium weight cutlery is made from lighter density plastic. This style is perfect for busy concession stands, takeout locations, and other establishments serving lighter fare.

Heavy Weight

While costlier than medium weight styles, heavy weight flatware is the more durable option. Customers will be impressed by the higher quality and heavier weight of these products. With a greater density than medium weight styles, these spoons, forks, and knives are the perfect choice for use with heavier foods, such as baked potatoes or lasagna.

CiboWares offers a variety of quality disposable cutlery, napkins, and other products for all your restaurant needs. Read our Disposable Utensils Buying Guide to learn more about our selection of disposable cutlery.
