I only recieved four out of the five boxes i ordered and paid for. Since we have been using this silverware I have hand washed it so it will maintain its sheen and not be damaged by the dishwasher. I wash and hand dry each piece. Even though I have taken these precautions they are getting scratches on them merely because they lay in the dishwater with other siliverware. Very disappointing. Additionally, I want to purchase the serving spoons and additional pieces that do not come in the standard serving set. They are no where to be found in an internet search. I was able to find soup spoons and other pieces like a sugar spoon and spreading knife. They are a minimum of $7.00 each!!! I wish I hadnt bought this silverware. :((
I like how shiny they are. The knifes look like they may need to be hand washed to prevent rusting but its higher quality than the ikea set I had before.
While this flatware is positively adorable to look at, I was surprised at the size of the forks. The size concern is with the closeness of the tines. The dinner forks are modest-sized and the salad forks' tines are even closer together. In our home some of us prefer smaller forks and so we are happy with them, however, if this is a concern for you you may wish to thick twice. They are beautiful and high quality. Overall, we are happy with our purchase.
I was disappointed at the weight and feel of this flatware, which feels cheap. I got it on sale, so for the money, is OK. We got it to replace some other flatware we've had for years and years, but have decided to keep our old flatware which even though old, is much nicer with a heavier weight and better appearance.
The set is comprised of, for lack of a better word \"kids dining utensiles\". The items are small sized, flimsy, and lightweight. You get what you pay for. In this case, the groupon discount did't really help, since this set was worth half of what I paid for it...even with the Groupon. Will probably end up giving away to the Goodwill...
I was very excited to get the set(s) but after my purchase, I was informed that they ran out. Now I have only one set and it's not enough for my family....very disappointed. As now I will have to get rid of the one set to purchase 2 other matching sets, to assure there is enough for my family.
I bought it because it almost matches my regular flatware and I need extra place settings for the coming holidays. I haven't used it yet, but I did put them in the dishwasher and they came out perfect. Very satisfied with the flatware, it looks good and suits my purpose.
I purchased this flatware because the pattern was similar to a pattern I already owned by another manufacturer (which was discontinued) and I wanted extra pieces. It is lighter weight that I was expecting but is a close enough match to work for my purposes.
Its OK. Description was perhaps over-sold as to quality, but as a single-guy wanting carefree selection and \"flatware\" ; well, it works and probably better than some WalMart or Target alternative.
Very happy with the silverware. Pattern is nice and weight feels substantial. Only slight minus: salad fork tines long and close together so food gets stuck and is hard to rinse off.
