Reed & Barton 18/10 Premiere S/S 108-piece Service for 12 Flatware Set
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.
Love Reed & Barton!!!
I bought a set for myself a few years back and this set was a Christmas gift for my kids who entertain a lot and this was a great gift. My daughter in law loves me even more!! She couldn't get over these. Thanks to Q and Reed & Barton.
Best holiday purchase I made!
I had been putting off buying new flat ware for at least 2 years and I'm so glad I did because if I would've boughten new flat ware I would've missed out on this crazy good deal. I got the set for a TSV of $149 back in November for my Thanksgiving get together. Cant say enough, superior quality and shine the 18/10 is perfect and the Benson pattern was the perfect compliment to my contemporary dining room. Easter is coming up and i was getting oout the new flat ware and it reminded me that I never left a review. If your on the fence, just try it!
So impressed with the quality of this flatware at a bargain price. Such a large quantity of serving pieces and extras. Highly recommend this set to anyone.
SO VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!
I was so excited when I ordered this set of Reed & Barton. When it arrived, I unpacked it; it was really nice looking and a good weight. However, like others have mentioned there are small rust spots on the knives. It is impossible to get the water spots off of any of the pieces, and we have soft water! Also they show finger prints very easily; I whip them with a soft cloth, but as soon as someone picks up a piece to eat it looks horrible. I used to relate Reed & Barton with quality, but no longer. I am too embarrassed to use this set when we have quests. I am so very sorry I didn't send the set back, but of course now it is too late. Will probably box it up and donate it to Goodwill or something like that. Thank heaven I kept my old set of flatware; have had it almost eight years, and it still looks better than this stuff.
