I liked the design of this set and it feels good in one's hand. It has the motif on both sides. For holidays, I use my gold set but I use this La Mer set when I have company and the everyday set is partly in the dishwasher. While it is dishwasher safe, the only problem is the ends do not fit into the dishwasher's flatware basket's holes so I have to flip that up and just plop them in and hope they get clean. Of course this will vary based on the brand of dishwasher you have. My dishwasher is a Bosch.
Nice Flatware, better than I thought especially for the great price. I believe it will hold up very well for the long run. It washes well too in the dishwasher. Feel nice in the hand and feels like quaility and not cheap like some Flatware. I bought this set because it was the closet I could find to match what I have but I would not have bought it if it were cheap. I would buy again.
Approximately 15 years ago I ordered a similar set of silverware from Overstock. It was modern and oversized just as this set is from Sasaki. I got very used to using and handling this larger silverware. I recently moved into a new home and decided on purchasing a new set and the Sasaki Aria Asana fit the bill. Even though it's a big 45-piece set, I decided to order two sets to have extras for when company comes. They are absolutely beautiful. I do put them in the dishwasher and they come out sparkling! If you like a modern flair you will love this style. And they are substantial, so no worries about bending any of these utensils! So glad I made this purchase!!
