Found 18/10 Stainless FlatWare

I got a Crate and Barrel Best Buys Catalog today and they have some sets of 18/10 flatware. It is not cheap but you get what you pay for. It is on pages 58 and 59. I am seriously thinking of getting some.

The cheapest they have listed is $69.95 for 20 pieces. I have Oneida from 30 years ago that is 18/10 but have no idea how much I paid for it. The Oneida I have seen lately is 18/0. What a disappointment in quality.

Remember when they sold 18/10 stainless by RSVP? I have a huge set, each piece was much less than $1 a piece. Seems lots of vendors are trying to slip in 18/0 ... :-(
Have you tried TJ Maxx or Home Goods stores? I remember seeing lots of big sets of flatware when I was there last..

A great place to buy 18/10 is Horchow's. I brought several different sets from them and they look as good as new...not cheap but Horchow's does have sales frequently. Horchow's is part of the Neiman Marcus group. You can find them @horchows.com...have a good day...

just curious as to how do these compare to the older 18/10 R&B continental style

I don't understand. Why does this matter?

I have a set of Reed and Barton from a couple of years ago. It was advertised by QVC as 18/10. I have noticed that the knives and serving pieces are not marked on the back as 18/10 but the other pieces are. I noticed it when I was trying to get a replacement from Reed & Barton for the master serving spoon because the one that came with my set was not the same pattern. Reed & Barton said that they no longer had this pattern in stock. It makes me wonder what their warranty would cover. Has anyone else noticed this on their Reed & Barton?

HSN had some 18/10 sets in a recent Home/Entertain Show.

Lots of vendors switched to cheaper 18/0 since 18/10 metal prices went up so much and they try to sell to certain price points.
It can be difficult to choose the better material over the style choices available in the lesser metal...

Thanks for this info as I have been looking for new every day flatware. This 18/10 is important because the items won't easily bend under use. I can't tell you how many pieces I have from odd sets that have bent fork tines, knives off center or bent, spoons bent, etc. I do have a Wallace set for grand occasions that is 18k gold plated, continental size and18/10 and has over 200 pieces. I love the weight and the balance of these pieces. When guests are using them one does not worry about wear and tear or accidents such as dropping them on the floor and stepping on them.

Thanks so much for posting about Horchow. I signed up for e:mails yesterday morning and then received one giving me a code for new customers for 10% off. So during my lunch break I found the R&B 18/10 "Brewster" set and ordered it. I have been wanting new flatware for a long time but couldn't justify the price or couldn't even find 18/10.

I ordered from Replacements Unlimited when I needed to add a few pieces. Sometimes I get so annoyed trying to find good quality things - brands I used to count on have cheapened their products. Least they could do is offer the option of 18/10. jmo

I purchased this set from Horchow about 2 years ago and love it because of the mixed patterns. I can always ad other pieces to this set because the varying patterns will always fit. At the time, I paid about $95 for it when Horchow put it one sale. The price for this set has sky-rocketed since, but I see they have reduced it again. There is nothing skimpy about the feel and quality of it and I love the way it looks at my set tables: http://www.horchow.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=cprod1660380&eItemId=cprod1660380&cmCat=search&searchType=MAIN&parentId=&icid=&rte=%252Fsearch.jhtml%253FN%253D0%2526Ntt%253Dhotel%252Bflatware%2526_requestid%253D7752.

Thanks for all the info. I am going to sign up for Horchow emails too. I always keep my pen and paper handy when I read the posts as I have learned so much and you all always find new websites for me to check out. C&B is usually expensive and I have not ordered any of the sets. I have lots of "wants" and not many "needs".

Remember to check out Tuesday Morning shops if you have a store near where you live.

I was just at Costco and they had 18/10 made by Waterford. 47 pieces for $79.99. Yes, pricier than the R&B tsv offered here but it's the REAL DEAL 18/10 manufactured by a top notch company!

You can find 18/10 stainless at Bed, Bath and Beyond as well as Macys. I found better deals at Macys with coupons and sales.

If you want 18/10 MADE IN USA try the silversupperstore . I bought two sets from them and LOVE it. It is very well made, heavy and comes out of the dishwasher beautiful (no lemon dish soap). They just started offering the serving sets with them. Made with USA steel too. Scares me what type of metal, etc. they use in the made in China silverware.

9 years ago I got a set of Cooks Essentials that was 18/10 and not expensive at all, still looks good.

BBB usually has Henckels, very good quality.

If you like more contemporary looking flatware, you might look at Crate and Barrel's Mix Flatware. It's 18/8 and wears very well. I love the coffee spoons and the cocktail forks in that pattern.

Edited to say it's made in China, though.
