Everything But The Plates

The truth is, plates aren't as important as you'd think. These days you can balance cake on a napkin or slap a slice on the pizza box top. But cutlery and glasses? Vital! So stock up on forks and goblets right here. You can improvise everything else. Even napkins! Don't you know that's what sleeves and pants are for?

Which flatware set are you using for your bacon?

I'm just hanging out, really.

@inkycatz - FYI I just sent an email to service@woot to cancel an order I placed for the Oneida set. Once I checked out I realized I would prefer to order 2 of the Rizzi sets. Just thought I'd mention it since it's also a woot-off day and I hope everyone isn't too busy to catch that.

DECEPTIVE!!!

Made of quality 18/10 stainless steel, 18% chromium and no nickel



18/10 means 10% Nickel (which is good), and yet they also say no Nickel... So which is it?

Caveat emptor

No advertising please.

I Might pick up another one of these sets. I loved the first one and still have them all packed away ready for moving. I just wanted to have a set for eating regularly and a set for special nights. Bow chica wow wow for silverware. =)

Insert cool signature here.

It should say 18% chromium and 10% nickel. It'll be fixed momentarily.

Is the ricci flatware being offered today the exact same as was offered a few weeks ago? It looks the same except the closeups on this show china made - the one I received and really liked from a few weeks ago was made in vietnam. The previous one also didn't have all that much stamping on the back (which I prefer). So which is it?? The one I purchased in July? Or as pictured today? Thanks.....

Well crap crap. If it is indeed 18/10 now I wish I hadn't cancelled the order and gone with the Riffing. Not gonna make you all cancel yet another order so I'll stick with the other ones. This Oneida one Isaac hell of a deal and now wish Woot wasn't so quick on the Customer Service for my cancel request!!

The July offering had the China picture, too, but the silverware arrived without a China stamp.

And once again I miss the Luigi Bormiloi 14 oz glasses! Dangit!
Has anyone received their order of these from the last time Woot sold them? I'm looking for glasses that don't have a big rolled lip and a bit less of that clunky look & feel of Libbey or Anchor Hocking glassware. These look like they'd fit the bill. Wooters are the most reliable reviewers I know, so some one throw out a review.
Looks like I'm going to have to watch Woot like a hawk until they come up again.

Wine may not heal all things, but it sure will make you feel a whole lot better.

Wait Vietnam? I purchased the Ricci or recate (SP) set the one with the curved butter knives and they should be 40 bucks. Same price as it was last month or the month before that.
edit: Has made in China on it.

Oh, wow, that's confusing to me again then. I bought the grazia last month and it definately is made in vietnam, which I prefer. And less stamping on the back too then is pictured with the china pictures.

On each of my silverware, it says China on it. I don't remember it saying Vietnam on any of em, but O well. As long as you like em.

a bit confused on the Oneida Chandler... are we sure this is 18/10?

The Oneida site lists it as 18/0 as does Overstock, and amazon reviews...

edit: I also see Kohls lists it as 18/10

I bought the Oneida set last time it came up in April 2012 (different pattern - Carolina). They are made in Vietnam. The back says "Vietnam" then "9 11" under that, then the "O" stamp, and "Oneida" on the handle. I love this flatware and should have ordered 2 sets because they do get scratched from daily use. They still look great but they do take wear. They also have made dark marks on my (somewhat old) ironstone (from cutting) but the men in my house (3) tend to use too much force in whatever they do. If this is the same kind of flatware I will buy another set to keep for nice occasions. They are very heavy in the hand, which is a good quality in flatware.

Oh, and, I just read the Specs section and I do none of those things, such as removing the flatware before the final dry of the dishwasher! I load my flatware with knives because I only have a small on-the-door flatware holder (which I despise) and I still end up washing about half of the stuff we use because it fills up over the course of a day. If you wash these by hand, you have to hand dry them right away or the water will stain them, but we have very hard water here, and the stain comes off with a steel wool pad.

So since I am not following instructions, I suppose I should not expect my flatware to stay pristine looking. Just a heads-up for the rest of you, look at the specs. I have another "good set" of flatware that I wash by hand when we have dinner parties.

If you guys don't mind me asking, for anyone who has the Renata set, how do they feel in your hand? I saw that the knife has a unique curve and I don't want to purchase 3 sets if they feel real funky or uncomfortable. On the other hand, I can see how that shape "might" even have better leverage for cutting, but I don't want to take the change of being wrong and be stuck with 3 sets.

My current flatware is still perfectly nice, I just kinda like the fluid shape of this set. It would be a totally unnecessary purchase so I want to make sure the handles are comfortable.

Thanks.

I have one add'l question, to owners of any of the sets (not just Renata). the descriptions say 18/10 SS, but the knives are 18/0 to increase hardness (however, this will decrease corrosion resistance).

Has anyone had any problem with their knives getting discoloration?

My current flatware is from Crate & Barrel. The forks and spooks are punched with 18/8 and still carry a smooth brushed matte finish from the day they were new. But the knives have ugly stains on them - I am guessing they are 18/0, but I don't know for sure.

Can you guys please tell me your experience so far with your Ricci flatware (and how long you have had them?) Thanks!

really need some clarification on this... this set is listed almost everywhere as 18/0

edit: it may be from what I'm reading that the older version of this set is 18/0 and the more recent version is 18/10

From the buyer:
Per the bottom of the utensils in our sample room it states 18/10.

All knife blades are 18/0 which is stronger than 18/10, to keep the edges sharp.

Is the Oneida set American sized or the larger European size? I bought the Ricci Renata set from the last sale, and, unfortunately for me, I didn't know there are three flatware sizes (continental, dinner, place).

I was surprised when I compared against my existing flatware and the Ricci teaspoon is the same size as a normal American sized tablespoon! The whole set is a bit larger than expected (that's what she said) so I will end up selling these on Craigslist.

I think it depends when/where you bought it. I have an 18/0 Onidda set from ShopKo but others reviewers of the same pattern say 18/10.

Picked up 3 of the Filomena set last time around. Really nice, good sturdy hand feel, well finished, no corners or burrs.

Though whoever mentioned the size is right; they're huge. The head on the small fork/spoon is about the radius of a CD, the large are about 20% over that.

I just bought these and as far as the Grazia set goes, they have a small Vietmam stamped on the backs of every fork, spoon, and down the handle of every knife. Barely noticeable.
