Rated 4 out of 5Â by Arrg Beware if giving as a gift - no retail box
This item was purchased as a wedding gift. It arrived in a small 3"x4"x10" shipping box. Each utensil was in its own plastic slip and each group of utensils (knives, dinner forks, etc.) were rubber-banded together and placed in the shipping box - there was no retail box. Ummm...makes for an awkward gift presentation.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by TexasGranny Pleasantly Surprised
I read the review that complained about the cheap costruction of this flatware set before I bought my sets. I thought that I would use these sets occasionally with my red spatterware "cowboy dishes." I was astonished at the heavy weight, the good quality of manufacturing, and the beauty of this flatware. I don't know what the other reviewer expected but I was very pleased. Not only do we use these every day, but I might buy more of the flatware in a different color.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by buyology2010 So far so good
I purchased this item with some hesitation, since I was worried the plastic handles might get dull and fall apart, I have had them for two weeks now and have been washing them in a dishwasher using no-lemon detergent.
I have so far been pleased with the quality and I like the fact that they are colorful and easy to handle. They are perfect for everyday use and if I have any problems within 6 months, I will write another review.
