Customer questions about this product

Can I use biodegradable plastic flatware the same way I use regular disposable flatware?
Biodegradable flatware is somewhat pliable compared to regular disposable flatware. For this reason, it is best suited for softer foods.

    These disposable names article friendly and made from corn fiber. They come packaged in a plastic clamshell containers if you order quantities of 100. Full cases of 1000 utensils are also available. Nice and sturdy and well worth the money.

    These knives do not disappoint! If you are looking for a disposable knife, this is it! I haven't seen a better disposable knife in my life. I actually cut a tender filet with this knife, no problem!

    These biodegradable knifes are a sturdy alternative to plastic utensils. Heavy weight is great for any take out application requiring a nice solid knife. Made of corn starch instead of plastic is a great idea!

    Go Eco! Biodegradable Cornstarch! Works well to! All natural and environmentally friendly. We purchased it from the Webstaurant store. We gave it 4 stars for the being green !

    Love that these knives are eco friendly instead of throwing away so much plastic from other traditional disposable knives. These are also nice and sturdy.

    This is my second order of the entire line (forks, knives, spoons). They come in boxes of 1,000 but the box isn't huge and can be stored easily. I'm an event planner and highlight that the disposables are green. The guests always are interested to find out these are made of corn starch. They have a great feel in the hand, they are heavy weight, can cut meat and don't feel cheap at all.

    These biodegradable knives are perfect for a food truck, especially if your environmentally responsible. Simply add a composting bin to your set up to decrease plastic waste.

    We used these at our wedding rehearsal BBQ dinner. We appreciated that we could compost them, and they held up well cutting sausages. I'm not sure how they work with tougher meats or veggies as I have not yet tried that. For our purposes, they worked just as well as the plastic version. I recommend and plan to purchase again for our startup food truck operation!

    Where else but the WebstaurantStore would you find knives of superior quality like these? Unlike many plastic knives that are offered out there, that you get just to give you a knife because including one is expected. Good handsome knife!

    Very good price for a compostable knife. Compostable products show your guests you are aware of the future trends and care about the environment, which seems too rare for restaurants.

    These biodegradable knives were perfect and durable for our wedding rehearsal. None of them broke during use and I highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of product.

    These were fine knives, they did the job. Good value and will last a long time. Will have them for awhile, and future events too.

    Customers do use the knives with our Chicken & Waffles. The knife broke on two occasions. Customer had a great attitude about things. No problems. We all laughed it off. But do wish there were plastic utensils that can withstand pressure.

    The best disposable flatware I have found, and an exceptional price on this site. Some sites charge a fortune for "eco-friendly" products. Not this one! These knives are large enough for an adult to use comfortably, the blade is sharp and the weight is nice. Excellent product!

    from The Savory Spoon Catering Co. Posted on

    These biodegradable knives will not break, and will cut better than any plastic knife. The knives were used on semi-hard foods and vegetables, and they worked wonders! I recommend these to any eco-consumer!

    from JAM Vegan Bakery Posted on

    I love the fact that this product is biodegradable. It is a good way to help the office go green. However, unlike the forks and spoons, this knife is a bit too flexiable/flemsy for cutting into something tough.
