Isaac Mizrahi Live! Reed & Barton Stainless Steel Flatware Set
I love this set,will get my sister one for Christmas.
Isaac Mizrahi/Reed & Barton Flatware
Excited to order this "leaf" flatware after seeing such a beautiful shiny, rich & elegant looking presenation on the tv. I opened the outer box & was surprised to find an overly taped box inside. After getting through all the tape, I opened the box & was immediately stunned & disappointed. I thought someone must have shipped me the "faux" version by mistake. I found a dull, cheap-looking bunch of metal utensils, with pieces missing! I cannot believe this nonsense would knowingly come from Reed & Barton & QVC. It's going back as fast as UPS can pick it up! QVC - please REFUND all my money, including my return shipping costs.
I ordered the Tunis pattern, which has the potential to be edgy and really sharp, or cheap and tacky. This flatware was super lightweight and unfortunately, in person, fell on the cheap and tacky end of the continuum. Very low quality for Reed & Barton. And this pattern is a bit too trendy for me...at least to keep for years of use. So, this set is going back. Also, some of the serving pieces honestly seem pretty unnecessary...I would rather see the quality of the stainless upgraded and receive fewer serving pieces that I won't use. Most of those would only be used with "company" or on holidays...and I would NEVER use this set for special occasions!! I didn't even want it for everyday use.
Where is the 18/10 that Reed and Barton built it's reputation on. Not worth the money. Come back to quality QVC
I am very pleased with this flatware set. The pieces are a nice weight and a substantial size. I ordered one set, and after I received it, I liked it so much that I ordered another set because I needed extra tea spoons and serving pieces. I have put the pieces in the dishwasher, and they came out fine. My only concern is that they are 18/0, which means they contain no nickel and may lose their shine over time.
so pretty and elegant
love my new flatware set!!! would of given 5 stars but they were not as heavy as I hought they would be. Great price for all you get too!!!
I was excited about this. Not to impressed with quality. I've purchased other Reed and Barton and this is not quite up to par. I won't send it back due to shipping cost. Will probably "gift" it. Darn!
