I have hosted Thanksgiving for family for the past 20 years. As each year passes, the number of guests increases. In recent past, I had been using plastic ware and paper plates (the nice ones with turkeys printed on them.) But they don't hold up to use. This year I decided to go "real" with my tableware. I have done comparison shopping on-line and in stores. The 5 pc. sets (30) I purchased are a great value, look good on the table, and should last for the next 20 years of Thanksgivings. No more broken forks while trying to eat pumpkin pie.

Not what I expectedThis is a good set of silverware, but not the heavy weight that I thought I was purchasing. This is very lightweight, and smaller in the hand than expected as well. They are more than adequate, but be forewarned they are NOT heavy. I have some from discount stores that weigh more than this set does. I did check, each individual box of silverware (each set comes in its own box, placed in a larger shipping box) and each set does state "heavy" on it. Just not thick enough to make me happy. But I don't want to pay return shipping, so I'll keep it for now. I would order a single set if you want to purchase to evaluate the utensils to see if they are what you are looking for. I have 8 kids, 4 are teen boys. I'm not sure the tines on the forks are strong enough to last my kids' usage of them (which is one reason I wanted "heavy" ones).
