Tableware can be glass, ceramic, earthenware, stoneware, or porcelain. Other beauties and preferences in dishes are observed for each nation and religion. We divide utensils into four types: serving spoons, tableware, silverware, and drinkware or glassware.

Serveware – as the name implies, such dishes are used for serving. This category includes plates, gravy boats, salad bowls, dessert bowls, pots, soup pots, teapots, and any other utensils used to serve food to the table. A serving spoon, ladle, pair of tongs, or other forks also fall into this category. Containers used for serving drinks, such as jugs or carafes, are also classified as tableware.

Dinnerware – dinnerware is a utensil used to serve individual portions during a meal. Dinnerware consists of various dishes, ranging from the primary plate and bowl to more specialized items used for specific purposes. It is also known as chinaware or ware and is usually made up of ceramics. The formal arrangement of dishes depends on the dishes served.

Flatware – includes items such as cutlery, considered one of the essential tableware sections. The most popular silver items are spoons, forks, and knives. Depending on the variety, they may vary in size and shape.

Drinkware – This category includes mugs, cups, and glasses.

There are two types of glassware – goblets, and glasses.

Martini glass – has a cone-shaped bowl located on a leg over a flat base, used for serving cocktails.

Wine glass –used for drinking and tasting wine. You can subdivide it into red wine glasses, white wine glasses, champagne glasses. Choosing a specific wine glass is essential.

Snifter or brandy glass is a kind of glass on a short leg, a more detailed explanation of a vessel with a wide bottom and a relatively narrow top. It is mainly used to serve aged spirits such as brandy and whiskey.

Champagne coupe or champagne saucer is a shallow glass with a wide bowl on the stem. It is used not only for serving champagne but also for making cocktails such as daiquiri, a Spanish cocktail.

The champagne flute is a glass on a leg with a narrow high bowl. Most often used for serving sparkling wines.

Cordial glass – is an elegant glass used to serve expensive after-dinner liqueurs.

Sherry glass – is used for serving aromatic alcoholic beverages such as sherry, port, or liqueurs.

Tumbler – is used with flat bottomed drinking glasses.

Collins glass – is used to serve water, soda, and sometimes beer.

Highball or tall glass – somewhat reminiscent of a Collins glass, but this one is relatively smaller in size.

Water glass (utility glass) – is an elongated tumbler type of glass and is usually confused with Collins or highball glass. It is also used to serve juices.

Rock glass or low ball – short tumbler and is known as old-fashioned. You can use them to serve neat drinks such as whiskey.

As the name suggests, a Whiskey tumbler is used to serve whiskey.

Shot glass – holds one single measure of alcohol is served to be consumed straight from the glass. Tequila and vodka shots are some of the popularly known photos done.

As the name suggests, a beer glass or mug is commonly used to serve beer.

Vitrified glass –is usually opaque in the case of dinnerware that has been fired at an ultra-high temperature to be nonporous and highly durable. The best-known vitrified glass dinnerware is Corelle, a proprietary glass laminate that is virtually indestructible—it will not break or chip even when dropped onto a hard floor. Vitrified glass is safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave.


For each person, the choice of tableware is an entirely different approach. Some prefer exclusive tableware, and others love antiques; some eat only with silver spoons and drink exclusively from silver glasses.

Who says that tableware is boring?! Nowadays, manufacturers have surpassed themselves when it comes to creating tableware which means that today’s models can be tedious.
