This flatware set is exactly what I was looking for. While it isn't as heavy as an Oneida set, it is not as light as a cheap flimsy set. The weight is perfect for kids and it works great for adults also. The greatest feature for this set is the number of pieces included (we no longer have to wash dishes a couple times each day). We have gotten multiple compliments on this set. It is wonderful as an everyday set and works fine as a low budget entertaining set.
For the price, this flatware is an excellent buy! Been using for about a month, washes well, sturdy enough for every day use. Nothing fancy, but I did not want fancy - nor did I want to pay a lot of money for everyday flatware. This fit my needs, perfectly.
This silverware looks nice and is a great value for everyday use. It's not heavy at all though so not appropriate for formal events. Spoons will probably bend if try to scoop ice cream. I got rid of the steak knifes...very cheap and flimsy. I didn't mind though... Most collections of this price don't even come w steak knifes or the large qty of each item. I especially like that the salad forks are quite large and could pass for dinner forks. Definitely an upgrade from my old silverware.
I love the flatware. It is the perfect weight (not too heavy). It keeps its shine in the dishwasher. I love having so many place settings plus the extra pieces. I hope it last a very long time. I plan to use it instead of my sterling for a dinner party later this month. I added iced tea spoons that are similar and they work together fine.
I bought this set because of the picture. I've been trying to match some pieces I already own, and the photo was spot-on. When you zoom in, you can see the indentations on the fork base between each tine. There are NO SUCH INDENTATIONS on the set I received. They are otherwise terribly similar, but not at all what I ordered. If you're looking for something specific, don't order these. I'm returning mine, and Overstock should pay the shipping.
When I ordered this product, I also ordered pillows at the same time. When I received the two packages, I wasn't sure which was the flatware, and which was the pillows. The flatware is very cheep feeling, and has no weight to it at all. I do understand that I am paying a small amount for the product, but I wanted what the reviews and the description promised. If you are expecting something that has decent weight to it, do not buy this product.
My flatware drawer runith over! This was just what we needed to fill the drawer with everyday flatware. Very nice design and feel. We are glad to not be running out of spoons and forks every time all the family shows up. This set was a great price too!
