Reed & Barton 18/10 Premiere S/S 108-piece Service for 12 Flatware Set
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.
Love this flatwear
Beautiful and has a very nice weight. I love the iced teaspoons and the side pieces are wonderful. Beautiful design and shine.
Quality Control Missing
This is the 2nd set I purchased. The first was fine...I had to send this one back due to scratches on most every piece. Poor quality control.
Happy Happy Happy
So glad I purchased this! Very nice weight and size.
I have the Whitney- it is gorgeous. I purchased for my holiday table and am so glad I did. The pattern is perfect for every day but also looks stunning on the table for special occasions. Great weight and quality. I use the steak knives and serving pieces all the time. Great set!
Most beautiful set of flatware!!
I read all the reviews and yes I did have a problem with the knives - both steak and butter. They did rust when you put in dishwasher. I was heart broken. It is such a beautiful set and comes with so many pieces. So I called QVC Customer Service and they were wonderful, as always, and agreed to take back. But I really wanted the set. They suggested I call Reed and Barton direct. I did and they were wonderful. Lifetime warranty on set and there was NO PROBLEM, they knew of the issue and sent me new steak and butter knives AND THE BEST PART THEY ARE PERFECT - WASHING THEM MANY TIMES IN DISHWASHER AND THEY STILL LOOK BEAUTIFUL. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO BUY THIS SET!!! IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, THERE IS NO PROBLEM GETTING IT FIXED!! So glad I kept them!!
GOOD WEIGHT - GREAT FLATWARE
I got this in November and have used it daily ever since. Love it! The balance of the pieces in my hand is very important with my arthritis. It comes out of the dishwasher looking as great as the first day I got it. And I love the fact I have so many matching pieces - something for everything. I would highly recommend this flatware. I got the Whitley pattern and couldn't be happier with it. it is weighty without being top heavy and does not fall out of my hands like other flatware can.
