Indians use silver plates as well as stainless steel plates and utensils because the metal is durable, rustproof and lasts a long time.

Stainless steel plates have long been used in Indian households.

They are rustproof, durable and the surface is renewed each time it is scrubbed.

These plates contain iron, chromium and nickel.

When we eat out of steel plates, these metals enter our bloodstream through the food.

Silver plate is just that - a thin layer of silver plated over another metal such as copper, brass or nickel.

Often silver plated items will be marked with an EP, EPNS or Silver on Copper or have no mark at all.

You should see one of the following markings or something similar: "9.25," "925/1000," "Sterling," "S/S" or "Sterling 9.25."

If you do not see any of these markings, it's highly unlikely the item is genuine silver.

If you do not see the sterling marking, the item is probably silver plated.

Eating food in silverware also promotes your digestive health because it has a soothing effect on your body.
