Archanatara Mahegawale silverware can be used for any ages from new born to age old people. (Sharing from my experience after seeing my grandparents still having food in silver plates).

since many years ago silverware is used for food (eating and storing). But came to know about all the uses now after reading this blog. From new born to age old it is good to eat in silver plates. After steel entered our houses people started buying steel vessels because they are affordable and no fear of theft.

@ Afrida , There is no need to sterilize silver ware, just use vim powder to clean it. If you will put silverware in boiled or hot water it will get black. Any thing (vim/liquid dish wash) which you use for other utensils can be used for silverware too. And to remove blackness vim powder.

In our community we made the baby to wear, compulsory, silver bangles with a hanging silver ball for the baby to suck at six months ... Probably the reason is for the anti bacterial properties of silver and to boost the child's immunity

Silver is good for health n gold is also beneficial.... but always cook food like dal,sabji,dosa in iron vessel instead of non stick vessel.. will benefit more when you serve this in silver vessel.. as it will be full of iron which boost the immune system n also helps in maintaining hemoglobin... n silver has its numerous benefits...... we say an apple a day keeps doctor away... I say food cooked in iron vessel helps to increase your blood,immunity n many more

@ Rekha R You do not need to buy a compelet set to serve dinner or food. Only a silver glass is sufficient. and use it as common. how? Take a steel jug and dip a small silver glass into water and use it only as drinking perpose not in cooking. A very small intake which disolves into water is enough.

@ Kalpana KK Dear never cook food or boil eggs in silverware. it will not make eggs nutritious by boiling them into the silverware. However, serving food in silverware is beneficial. Silverware is prefered for serving food with the trust that it will touch the food and then go inside our body not for cooking. Clean sliver utensil with Vim Powder and use for serving food.
