@jpalm13:  weird. I wonder if you got a bad set. My parents have had Oneida for years with no problem. That’s what we registered for

@jpalm13:  There are different grades of Oneida Stainless Steel flatware, but even the lower-end options should not have done that. Hmm. I have had my Oneida Stainless 18/10 flatware for 15.5 years, and it’s been through the dishwasher a gazillion times.

At any rate, I registered for Reed & Barton flatware to go with my fine china. I have only used the pieces once or twice, because I am committed to hand-washing them.

I’m not big on flatware (I’m not going to shell out tons of $$$ just for stainless steel) and I’m pretty picky (I don’t like overly designed stuff).

I registered for these, and I love them:

All I wanted was some sleek 18/10 stainless steel that I actually liked with good reviews.  And I wasn’t going to pay above $40 a set.  I actually preferred C&B selection and they had reasonable prices for all 18/10 flatware.  I couldn’t find anything I liked among the more tradition brands.

I have some intricate silver flatware that was my grandmothers I’ll get down the road so I definitely didn’t want any of that.

@jpalm13:  We have those same dishes!!

We recieved the Kate Spade Union Street set. It’s kind of expensive ($70 per place setting) But while we were registered Macys would have buy 2 get 1 free sales, coupons, etc and we ended up with the full set. 1.5 years later…. we still love it and use it every day. Each piece looks as shiny as the day we opened the box.
