Full List of Flatware Brands Made in the USA

Liberty Tabletop


Headquarters: Sherrill, NY

States manufacturing in: NY



Among the over 20 different flatware companies that we looked at, only one produces all of their flatware in the U.S. – Liberty Tabletop. Liberty is the name brand of Sherrill Manufacturing, a family-owned and operated business run by Matt Roberts and Greg Owens. They’ve been producing American made flatware for over 100 years right out of their factory in Sherrill, NY (here are other great products made in New York). Their product quality is among the best, even compared to international manufacturers, because they take the time to make their flatware with high-quality materials (18-10 chromium/nickel stainless steel) that are also sourced from the United States, and test all of their steel to ensure no toxins are present and it meets all health and safety standards.


Factors To Consider

Style

The best styles are largely subjective to what your preferences are. If you’re shopping for someone else, look for styles that are very popular among the previous buyers of these flatware products, and that goes well with a wide variety of settings from casual to formal.

Strength and Longevity

Durability is important when looking for your next flatware set. However, we don’t mean durability in the sense of these utensils breaking or snapping. Durability more means rust prevention and the ability to clean safely and effectively. You need flatware that is going to last you a long time, and that you don’t have to hand clean and dry every time you use them. Choose options that are made of the highest quality materials and are dishwasher safe.

Safety

Speaking of high-quality materials, those also come into play when thinking about the safety of your flatware. Typically, you want to look for flatware that is made from high-quality stainless steel, typically 18-10 chromium/nickel stainless steel and up. Make sure the manufacturer uses high-quality materials like this, and also does extensive safety testing on all of their flatware to check for toxin or lead exposure. Everything from Liberty Tabletop goes through a rigorous QA process.

Value

Make sure to choose patterns that are high quality and price appropriate for your budget.
