I collect and KNOW flatware. So in my "collectors" opinion, yes they are definitely flimsy. If you seek sturdy at an affordable price, go with Gourmet Settings. They have many patterns to choose from, including several similar to this. You won't be disappointed.

Not at all flimsy. Pretty, heavy, and sturdy. The soup spoons however, are large enough to be used as "the famous blunt object". They look and feel much more expensive than they are.

It is much sturdier than most inexpensive silverware, but not as strong as really good silverware. It definitely can be bent, but it wouldn't likely happen accidentally.

I use these daily, and ofter they sent in the sink in water overnight, and have had no problems with the rusting, or getting dinged up in the washer. This is the first affordable set I haven't thrown out for rusting and pitting after just a few weeks of use, so would reccomnend them.

answered 3 years ago
By
BastaPasta
answer 4
The company states yes they are dishwasher safe and rust resistant, however because these are 18/0 I would not recommend putting them in the dishwasher.
As there is no nickel content, the finish will become dull over time due to the heat in the drying cycle and water spots may also be an issue.

Made of 18/0 stainless steel, the Simplicity line of flatware has a classic look to it that fits in both traditional and contemporary settings. Dishwasher safe; avoid soaking stainless flatware in water for a prolonged period of time or overnight.

These are made in China.
I have yet to find new "made in the USA" flatware, there does not seem to be any companies left who continue to manufacture here.
HOWEVER ...affordability AND top quality can be found with all Gourmet Settings products - made in Canada.
France/Italy flatware ( pricier brands such as Dubost, Rosanna, etc.) are still very high 18/10 quality as well.

What is the metal content of the "flatware"? stainless steel with or without silver and what ratio?

Pieces are on the larger size -- longer tines on forks, bigger bowls on spoons, etc. -- so probably too big for little kids' hands.

This is 18/0, 18% chromium stainless steel no nickel content. No silver content whatsoever. Good for every day but if you have young children, I would go with Gourmet Settings flatware. The pieces are more substantial.

These pieces are great for large AND small hands. My husband has huge hands (bigger than the average male), and I have very small hands (smaller than the average female), and we are both comfortable using this entire set of silverware--I normally use the small salad fork while he normally uses the large fork.
