Silver was often used for cooking utensils in 18th and 19th century kitchens due to the hygienic properties of this metal. To-day, antique silver saucepans are used for serving vegetables and sauces in the dining-room by some aristocratic and other families. This may be whimsical but has the advantage of keeping the contents hot.
