When it comes to everyday dining, flatware can be somewhat of an afterthought. Many of us started with a first-apartment starter set and never upgraded. Maybe we've moved around and mixed sets with roommates—making the utensils drawer even more of a melting pot. If this sounds all too familiar and you think it might be time for an upgrade, now's a perfect time.
