I ordered this as a 8 piece set about 4 years ago. My daughter accidently turned on the disposal and one spoon was dropped in. I noticed they only sell this as a five piece place setting. Very pricey now but I can tell you that my set has gone from table to dishwasher with no problems. I don't use any detergents with lemon of course. No signs of rust or other problems with this set. love the heavy feel not cheap like the ones at target or walmart. I think these will last a long time. The only reason I can think of to get rid of them would be if I got bored of the design. probably not...
I've owned this flatware pattern for over 15 years. We received 12 place settings for our wedding. It is a timeless and elegant pattern that isn't gaudy. It goes well with many different china patterns and is durable enough to be used every day. Our service looks as good as it did when we first received it, despite being used every day and put through thousands of washes in the dishwasher.
still waiting to order another set, this is wonderful flatware I only thing some pieces do not fit in basket for dishwasher, but well worth the bother to find a place for it in dishwasher.
