Reed & Barton 18/10 Premiere S/S 108-piece Service for 12 Flatware Set
I love it! My new flatware is gorgeous to look at and it feels wonderful in my hand. The size and weight are perfect. I'm so glad I finally made the purchase.
I have had a few different S/S flatware sets by different manufacturers over my lifetime. This set ranks right up there with the best I've had. With over 108 pieces, this is an incredible deal. Most sets require you to buy the serving pieces separately at big prices. This set comes complete. Enough place settings for that big dinner party. Heavy heft, good feel in the hand, and goes through the dishwasher perfectly. Strong enough for the family with kids. This was a "gift for me" purchase and I have to say I'm so glad I did.
Best value for a really great contemporary set
I haven't replaced my silverware in 30 years so bought it for myself and absolutely love them. Couldn't believe how much they weighed when they were delivered. So So heavy and had one knife with a small spot on it and Reed & Barton immediately replaced the knife with no questions asked. One note. when using them in the dishwasher, the rep told me not to use the dishwasher tablets as it will make marks on the silverware so I went back to liquid and no more marks.
We haven't had the flatware set for long but the quality seems to be as good as is claimed during the on air demonstration, except for a couple of pieces which had
defects. We called Reed & Barton and they said they would replace the defective pieces, which they did except they sent the wrong replacement pieces. We called again and hopefully this time the correct pieces will arrive shortly. Hopefully we will enjoy this set for years to come, but it is certainly better than the set we replaced. Not perfect but very good.
Oh, its all fine the first few months......after that, ,the tarnish and rust is ridiculous.
test of rime.
I have had a similar set of the whitley for at least 8 years. We use them every day and have had no problems with the set being used has an everyday flatware. This is the best flatware that I have every owned. And I love the size and quantity of the hostess pieces. we have not had a problem with the quality of the flatware, no chipping or rust, and everything gets ran thru the dishwasher. Excellent purchase.
I bought my Reed and Barton "Domain" in 2006 after I decided to replace my set that I had since 1970. My set came from the gas station ( get one set with a free fill up of gas). It worked well, but time came to get a new set. When I saw the "Domain" I loved it and still do. It was exactly what I needed and is still beautiful today. I am thrilled with it and know that anyone looking for flatware would love Reed and Barton. You will not be disappointed.
We decided to replace our old flatware because there seemed never to be enough teaspoons. After researching lots of options, we found the QVC website and the search was over! We ordered the Benson pattern because we preferred the simplicity of the design and we are not disappointed. With all the pieces in this set, it is truly a value for the price and the flatware is beautiful. We ordered two sets and only found a couple of pieces with very minor scratches. Nothing that is visible with everyday use and nothing that needed to be returned. And we received the sets four days ahead of the scheduled delivery. QVC really lived up to their name with this purchase!
SO FAR SOOO GOOD
I love the weight of the silverware, I love the shine, niether is too overwhelming. A very good deal for the price. I'm pleased.
I needed silverware and Reed and Barton was suppose to be good. To my surprise when i received these they were very poor quality. They were either dented, scratched, marred and most disburbing of all, some of the pattern was missing!! I reordered and the new set was the same -- returned them as well.
I can't give it five stars because there were a few very small flaws in the finish. However, I do like all the serving and accessory pieces. The teaspoons are a little larger than my old Reed and Barton stainless I got from QVC decades ago. In fact, everything is a little larger. It had a bright, shiny finish when I bought it in December. It is already looking a little scratched up. Only my husband and I are at home to use it everyday, anymore.
Nice product, but a few problems
I read a lot of the reviews before purchasing this and noticed quite a few buyers had problems with the knives. I have been using it for a week now, and 4 of the knives are already rusted or have chips. I will be sending them in to Reed and Barton to see what can be done. I hope they honor their warranty.
