Oneida makes great silverware. I own two sets and years later they still look brand new. Highly recommend them. (I think mine are 18/10 though...)... Just checked, and no, they are 18/0 just like these. Buy 3 sets, you can't go wrong.

(it is cheaper to buy them in sets so you don't have to replace the individual pieces when they are ground in the disposal by accident)

Oneida will sell their patterns for a lifetime (that's what they say and so far, so good). If you ever need more of a discontinued pattern, you won't have to hunt high and low...

Of course, you can just buy 3 sets and never have to worry about it...

PEACE

Well, people had started to complain how Woot was regurgitating the same products over and over. Wood yesterday, silverware today. Nobody can say that they aren't bringing out new products now.

What is the significance of flatware being 18/0 Stainless Steel Flatware? I know it says that it is Chromium: 18%, No Nickel, but is that a good thing?

Reviewers on Amazon always make the point that 18/10 stainless is the heavier, more desirable kind.

just got this stuff for my wedding - good everyday tableware. heavy enough to feel like you're holding something, but no ugly designs.

winner.

got the same oneida polished set from walmart, in packs of 8 for $50 each, so i got more serving utensils than this offer.

[ no wooden box, tho ]

oneida is good stuff, but this isn't that good of a deal.

18/10 is the more desirable. The Steel is more durable and pretty much lasts forever. All-clad cookware and Rosle are both 18/10 and they are very nice quality.

The deal is currently posted on bradsdeals.com. However, I just noticed shipping was $12 so I guess this is better.

They used to be manufactured right here in central NY, but alas, the lure of super cheap offshore labor proved too strong, so yes to China I believe. Skilled Americans used to make a decent living, buy cars and homes and pay taxes making these. I always heard that there should be an 18/10 mix with nickel for better quality.

Looks like Woot is targeting a different group of consumers. Grilling planks yesterday and silverware today. Nice to see something other than TVs and monitors.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

$125 on Amazon ... good reviews for both, even though 18/10 is suppposed to be a better quality in the long run. It's probably better than my 15-year-old post-divorce flatware from Target, which I'm sure is not 18/10 and still looks good after all this time. In for one!

Over 75 wootilicious purchases so far, including: 1 unmutilated Be the Monkey Woot T-shirt, 12 screaming monkeys and 2 leakfrogs. Ribbit.

Meh. Good deal. Def not great deal.

Not so long ago I bought same size Oneida set with tray (which is great btw) for $39.99 on Amazon deal-of-the-day. With their free shipping.

The satin version will not look as "worn" as time goes on, compared to the polished version, since it's harder for tiny scratches to be visible on satin finish.

Woot's includes the tray, too... Very last thing under "In the box:" is "Wooden Storage Caddy."

Nope, that code only brings it down from $149 to $119.

hopefully, you're being sarcastic here! if that's all you want, you can get it for $15 through oneida...or you can get similar ones at any department store or import store.

Never used satin finish flatware before. Love the look, but what do you think the odds are of it wearing to shine over time? I'm torn between the two sets.

Some people do have nickel allergies...would that be important to know with flatware?

And the pattern on the set you linked to is butt ugly. The patterns woot is offering are almost twice as expensive elsewhere.

If I recall correctly, after 2004 things began being outsourced to Indonesia. Up until then I believe everything was made here in the U.S.A. As far as China goes, I don't believe anything Oneida is made there, but then again EVERYONE makes their stuff in China.

Fun Fact:

Look up "Oneida Community" on wikipedia. They were a "Utopian commune" in late 19th century New York that supported themselves by making metal animal traps, and then eventually silverware.

To anyone looking at this that has never bought any stainless steel before:

Be careful of the grade used!

This set is 18/0 stainless steel. These two numbers represent percentages of alloys included, but the important number in stainless steel is the second number. This represents the percentage of nickel used. What does nickel do? It prevents rust. Where is flatware often used? In wet environments. Where does this leave us?

If you were to hand wash and dry this flatware, you would never see an issue. However, by putting them in the dishwasher or otherwise exposing them to wet environments, you will see them rust like nobody's business.

So, as a bit of advice from a moderately experienced kitchen guy, avoid these. Yes, you will have to pay more to get decent flatware, but buying 18/8 or 18/10 stainless steel flatware is an investment. If you want cheap stuff that might rust, but definitely won't last several years, buy these. If you want a great set that will outlast your kitchen, look to spend a little more. This is about the price you would pay for a single 4 place setting set of decent 18/8 or 18/10 flatware. As far as brands go however, Oneida is excellent, no problems there.

When shopping for *anything* stainless steel, be careful of the grade used. If the box does not list a grade, or you see 18/0... avoid. This applies to pots, pans, flatware, pretty much anything stainless steel that you would purchase.

Hope this post helps anyone that was considering purchasing based purely on the price. My warning boils down to this.. research before you buy. 18/0 stainless steel in flatware that will essentially always be wet is like investing in a motorcycle when you live at the North Pole, it's just not the best idea.

I assume the 18/0 refers to 18 percent chromium and zero percent nickel content. What is the significance of that? What exactly does the nickel do, and why is flatware with nickel considered to be more desirable?
