it was time to replace my gorham stainless which my mother in law bought us as a wedding gift over 15 years ago. she paid over $800 for the full set back then. my old set is still of the finest quality so i had very high expectations in a new set. when this set arrived i was not disappointed. the weight and quality is outstanding, but at a fraction of the cost. it's a particularly beautiful set and i have been searching for a new set for over a year. having bought and returned four different sets by various manufacturers i am happy to have finally decided on the villeroy and boch oscar.

I already have a set of six of the Oscar and love them. I decided I'd like to use them everyday plus when I entertain so needed more. They are a good weight and feel and look classy and expensive without being over the top. Their classic design goes with everything, be it a bbq or a formal dinner. It is so nice to use good quality all the time. They don't come with a soup spoon or bread and butter knife, which I will try now try to buy separately, but apart from that, I would highly recommend them. I live in Western Australia and the delivery was 9 days which I consider pretty good. My only complaint was the packing, The cutlery box had been place into a larger box and when I received it, the cutlery box had come open and the cutlery itself was loose and a jumbled mess. Fortunately nothing was scratched, but it was disappointing to receive it in this condition. But you also may look at this as being a credit to the product that it can obviously take some rough handling and still look beautiful.

Great set, the quality is exceptional. Just one notion, please be aware that as I stated in the theme, the size of the utensils is on a bigger side. The kids in my family are actually using the tea spoons for soup. We also own *** set from *** and it's considerably smaller. All in all, it's a very good buy.

I absolutely love the simple design of this flatware, but it is definitely on the small side. Also, the manufacturer wants you to remove it from the dishwasher right away, which is totally impractical, but if you do not you will have water spots at least, or rust on the knifes. I have a new Bosch dishwasher, and use rinse aid. I will return the set because I do not want to ruin the stainless interior of the dishwasher. I have a set of WMF flatware that does not have these flaws.
This cutlery set is a great addition to the one I got as a gift with my Miele dishwasher. My only issue is that the packaging was damaged and the cutlery loose in the box on arrival, due to poor packaging, I would have been disappointed had I been giving it as a gift as the presentation box was a mess.

Very disgusted with Overstock- box arrived cracked and broken and the whole set was completely tossed about and out of order. They should take more pride in service, i could buy from anywhere, and this was not an inexpensive item! Get it together Overstock! Villeroy and Boch would NOT be happy with the way you treat their merchandise. We had to rearrange and count everything- and this item was a gift!!!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect, but arrived in disgusting broken package.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. i may not order from O again
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? lovely high-end table service that looked thrown about in transit
We were wanting an upgrade to our flatware - this fit the bill. Like it because it's got smooth lines (read no food particles), it's weighty enough for guest dinners, but light enough for everyday use. It looks nice and streamline. Would recommend! We got 2 sets which was perfect for our needs.
I love this flatware set. They are very weighty, shiny and they have clean lines. I use them all the time for casual meals and dinner parties. I would like to buy another set so that I have extra forks, since those seem to run out first.
The V and B flatware is very elegant looking and is also handy in the hand. The only problem is that after 6 months of use, the knives have rust spots when taken out of the dish washer. The spots wipe off but leave a little disappointment.
