Received these today and they are HORRIBLE!! The pictures do not do justice. I will not use these at my huge event, not even if they were free. Horrible scratches, black spots all over them.
I am returning these because they were not what I hoped for. While I understand that I am not getting metal silverware, these seemed even lighter and more flimsy than other plasticware I have used. They also seem very huge in the hand. The largest problem though is that a lot of of these had black spots due to the silver rubbing off already. They are very tightly packed into their box and it shows. It was mostly a issue with the forks. The knives and spoons looked better, but not amazing enough for a wedding.
Most of the silverware is stained and it does not clean off. A lot of the silverware had sharp ends. Your guest could chop themselves using this silverware.
We stock our camper with these. They are a small sturdier and larger in size than typical cheap white plasticware on shop shelves. I’ve bought various brands, there are some that are a small heavier I’d say these aren’t those, maybe in the middle. I didn’t see any dark spots as others have noted, notrough edges that would chop you either. I ran a spoon through meal & hand-washing, rubbing with a paper towel to see if the silver rubbed off as some have said. I do see a few scratches on the back & some ‘buffing out’ of the sheen on the back of the spoon after some vigorous rubbing with the towel. As long as they don’t flake or seem to be passing off silver into our meal or mouth I’m okay with them-they are plastic so I’m not expecting them to be like a regular item. As far as plasticware am beautiful satisfied with these, pack size is a beautiful amazing deal. I purchased other stuff in the delivery & it all came in a larger box so possibly my box of silverware was a small better protected in mailing.
the durability ...as opposed to other disposable cutlery is exceptional...how ever the (aka) silver plate comes off when cutting or eating with a fork and knife.... if it passes between teeth u see the dark under layer... that being said am questioning ..sloughing of the actual ..( aka silver) am concerned about...
These are much more durable then most disposable silverware. I love how shiny they arem they are excellent for any unique occasion. We are using them for our wedding and im so glad they are this beautiful
These silverware were attractive and LOOKED JUST LIKE REAL SILVER. However, I was unable to hold mind because the pack arrived damaged. I don't think this was the sellers fault though and if I had more time before my happening I would have ordered them again. They looked amazing.
Purchased these for my nephew's wedding reception. We required something beautiful but simple cleanup for a lot of people. These utensils looked nice and worked well. Some broke while cutting pasta. There are rough pieces on the ends of each utensil, it would be nice if these were buffed off as they were made.
Didn’t expect these to feel so CHEAP and FLIMSY yes these are plastic but I’ve seen better silver plastic utensils. I’ll probably break my fork trying to chop into my meat
Most attractive, sturdy, durable plastic tableware of tons of types I've used. The size and pattern of true silverware, but lighter weight. Even survives washing by hand a lot of times in a trial. Prefer it to stainless steel for almost all uses so far (though not to my silver).
Okay so I got these for my wedding reception. It was a low key, family and close friends, at a local park picnic pavilion. I was praying they would be powerful plastic, and the silver coating wouldn't be scratched off or flake off when guests were eating. This cutlery far exceeded my expections. These look so true on the tables. They arrived not scratched, coating intact. The plastic knives really impressed me because, let's face it, what plastic knife can chop through chicken breast. These knives actually did without shredding the chicken and without any difficulty. I didn't even realize it until several bites into my chicken that I was actually using a plastic knife. Also the silver coating did not flake or scratch off either. The forks are sturdy and the spoons are amazing too. These are full size cutlery pieces as well, not little plasticware. Just awesome. Don't hesitate to buy these. I will definitely buy again if we need them.
We used these for our wedding, and they worked fairly well. They were definitely the best value we could find, and we loved that we could order in bulk. They looked amazing from a distance.....however, some of the silver paint wore off as we took them out of the box and rolled them into napkins. It wasn't super noticeable, but sparse black specks revealed locations where the paint rubbed off. However, I would still recommend these to a friend, and I would go back and buy them all over again if I had the chance. Still, if you're looking for the absolute best quality, these might not be for you.
This are really nice and solid plastic silverware. Look like true metal until you pick them up. Only complaint is they were not packaged like pictured so it threw me off guard.
These were a very nice quality and looked very beautiful at the rehearsal dinner. Once tied up in a napkin with a bit of ribbon, these were excellent for the event. I am satisfied we found a quality product at a amazing price so I could have fun the evening and not worry about rounding up rented utensils.
We required something a small more classy than the typical plastic utensils for our wedding. Renting metal utensils was method too expensive for our budget so we settled with these. I am very happy with how they came out and other than the weight difference you would think they are sterling silver!
Wow! Much nicer than expected. Bought them for home use and travel. Because of my medical condition, holding massive utensils are extremely hard on me. This flatware was amazing. Not only in appearance, but in durability. The knife was exquisite. I could chop my steak with no breakage. I'll be using this line of products for my needs, personal, dinners, gatherings and parties. Two thumbs up!
These were excellent for our party! They were so shiny, and amazing quality! They looked like true silverware on the table. They were perfect! Cant brag enough on them!! They looked very fancy at our birthday party! Will definitely be ordering them again!!
Beware- these came with very sharp ends. You can see the plastic sharp edges in the image I attached. It’s clear they are broken off from mass production.
Every time we place these out for parties people say something like "Oh! Wait, these are plastic?! They're amazing!" Sturdy (you can chop meat with this without it bending), attractive, and it's a amazing deal. Satisfied to continue getting these for events!
To my amazing sadness I've finally given up using my amazing silverware and china at the holidays. Family kept complaining about having to hand wash after dinner. I purchased some clear plastic plates, nice napkins, and this silver tone flatware. The plastic flatware did have a few black marks where they rubbed together, but not poor and not that noticeable. I especially liked that this set had double the amount of forks since we all know we use more forks than spooks and knives. Everyone loved just scraping the dishes and throwing it all in the recycle bin. I'm still holding out on buying plastic wine glasses, but I can place my current ones in the dishwasher:)
This silverware surpassed my expectations by leaps and bounds. It has the look and feel of true silver (albeit not the weight) and is durable enough to withstand multiple washings and rough treatments. They are not massive enough to pass as true silver, but they are definitely high quality and remarkable examples of plastic cutlery. I will definitely order these again for any happening that merits additional effort and taste but is too troublesome for me to use true silver. The elegance and convenience can't be overstated.
I loved the quality of this item. They were sturdy and beautiful. I actually buy these in Costco most of the time but it was more convenient to order and the price was fair. I love Costco but I definitely feel that these were method better in quality. This is a very high compliment, being that I search everything at Costco to be of better quality than anywhere else. They also looked better than my current silverware. Lol
I purchased these for a back-yard barbecue that I wanted to be a small more up-scale than one would be. They are beautiful durable and light weight. I didn't review "easy to clean" because I had everyone toss them. The whole purpose was for them to look nice, but I didn't wish to wash them. My husband did say they had a strange taste, that's why I'm giving them 4 stars instead of 5.
I used this plastic ware for a baby shower. It looked attractive and classy on the table. That's what I liked. What I did NOT like, was that the images do not present the cutlery from the back. It is not "solid" but "hollowed out," as though the manufacturer wanted to save material (to hold price down or to create the silverware lightweight), and this gave the silverware a cheap feel. Additionally, there was a sharp nub at the base of each and every handle, likely from the manufacturing process. This cheapened the appearance and feel of the stuff even further. The worst of all was that the silver color came off when I washed them in the dishwasher after the party. In my photo, the 3 pieces on the left are unwashed/new; the 6 on the right are after being washed in the dishwasher. Now unusable! So sad and wasteful. DO NOT WASH IN THE DISHWASHER WITH SEVENTH GENERATION DETERGENT!!!!
This plastic ware, is awesome. It is sturdy compared to.others, it had a silver finish that looked like true silverware. Very happy with purchase.
As a lot of have said, the materials look sturdy enough but I haven’t use yet. The silver coat seems like it will hold. Like everyone else said, the edges on the handle part is rough and the color is fading. This is probably the effect of the manufacturer molding two forks back to back then snapping it off by the handle. So you obtain that rough s going to be used as back up anyway when all the true silverware has been used.
Used for a birthday party - very well created plastic silverware. At first glance, they look like the true thing. My guests were impressed.
This was the nicest looking plastic silverware I've used. I recieved a lot of compliments and offers to [email protected]#$%!. Personally I order plastic so I don't have to wash it. But if your so inclined to reuse, it's definitely worth it.
I bought these for Thanksgiving and they were great! Not one of the forks broke. They also created the table look very elegant even though everything was disposable.
Ordered these for a 60th birthday party and they almost created the “cut.” However, after close inspection, there are markings on the handles where you can see they were broken apart from mass production. No thanks. They’re going back. Just glad I have Orime shipping or this could have been a disaster.
The ends on the silverware was damaged where they broke them apart. The color was stripped off the ends which left the silverware with unsmooth ends, therefore the ends were very sharp and could chop my guest hands. One of them damage my hand. I was so disappointed with this order and need for this silverware to be replaced. Thanks
DO NOT IGNORE THE REVIEWS. I ordered these in gold and all were chipped at the bottom. Probably from pulling them apart in manufacturing. I don't recommend purchasing these.
First of all, yes. The silverware has that poor plastic chipping on the edge of the handles. Is it noticeable when you have the put set? A small - but I really don't think guests will care in the slightest. I mean, they are going to use them once to eat then toss them, right? Do you remember what the silverware looked like at the latest happening you went to? Probably not. These are going to do the job just fine, and I honestly think they look quite nice! I'm using them for my wedding reception. I was skeptical because of the reviews but I think most of the other reviewers are being dramatic. If you wish nice silverware - then pay for nice silverware. If you wish something that still looks attractive in a setting, is affordable, and will obtain the job done then these are a amazing deal. They are also bigger than I expected.
I was looking for something to accommodate a huge party and these fit the bill. You always have additional spoons but it was worth it to have the number of forks and knives I needed. Color is not exactly what I expected but they are plastic so I obtain it, but I didn't know there were so a lot of shades of gold. My recommendation - obtain your stuff from the same company and you're golden!
We used these utensils for my wedding in September and everyone thought they were real! We had chicken and the knives chop right through it which was surprising being plastic silverware!
These are the 2nd set that I purchased thinking maybe I just got a poor batch the first go around but NO they are just as bad... Some ends are super sharp....
The ends of the forks, spoons and knives were not smooth and you can see where they were broken off from mass production but never smoothed out. If I had more time I would have sent them back, but no one noticed or did not care. They are disposable. The only other thing I did not like was that the break under slight pressure.
I had some spoons missing the tip. The color was a small more yellow than I liked. I don’t have a picture but a few forks had a weird red paint/sticky syrup on them and left a stain when washed off. I had to use them bc it was too late to return. The shipping was quick (prime) came right on time to set up for our wedding reception.
Excellent perfect. And it was a decent color gold as well. Not that gawty color gold
I bought this to supplement a Rosetta Stone course that I am using. It does state that it is a travel-oriented phrasebook but more often than not, it does not have the words that I am looking up when I am seeking information. That is why I docked two stars.--I love that it has the pronunciation guide--It is well organized and simple to search the info that it contains--It is indeed perfectly sized for travel and in that respect, does deserve 5 stars. I would take it with me if I were traveling to that region.I did not expect it to be a comprehensive dictionary, given it's compact size - but I did expect it to include the primary vocabulary that I'm encountering in my beginning level Irish coursework.I am keeping this book, because I believe that it will be useful as I progress.If you are looking for a dictionary to supplement studies, this might not be the one for you.If you are looking for a fast reference, this could be just the book.
This is a fun dictionary to have if you are interested in the complexities of the Irish-Celtic language. Amazing to have when traveling the the west coast of Ireland especially.
I love this book its a amazing begin to learning the Irish language, I have been looking for a book that not only teaches the words, but helps you pronounce them, amazing book
using Irish-English English-Irish Dictionary and Phrasebook with Gaelic lessons and courses is really helpful. it give you the flavor a correct usueage of the individual words
This is a handy sized English-Irish, Irish -English dictionary to use and carry whilst learning your fresh language. For its size it is very informative and includes a sound selection of the main words which you would need to look up. I am very happy with it.
My BeaverCraft Wood Carving Bent Gouge K8a/14 arrived while I was preparing some miniature Nativity sets, so I place it to work immediately hollowing the Mangers. The tool chop attractive chips without any need to strop the edge. Later it worked smoothly on a lumber yard poplar spoon. The gouge is solidly created and well finished. I'm glad I discovered Beavercraft tools and would recommend them to anyone as a amazing value.
I had received this item 9/23/19. I used it for 15 minute and it broke. It really was a amazing tool until it broke. I had left a poor review because of this. Now 3 days later I received a brand fresh one from BeaverCraft plus one more item which was totally unexpected and caught me by surprise. Because of their Integrity, customer service and standing behind the products that they sell I am changing my 1 star rating to a 5 star rating just for being the Amazing company that they are. I would not hesitate to buy any of their products again.
I like how it came sharp and it fits perfectly in my hand i did some touch to my handmade Kuksa that my spoon knife couldn't do this is an amazing tool to have .
This bent gouge is excellent for making anything you have to dig out!As always Beavercraft comes through with durability and the beauty of a fine crafted tool.I have just about all the beavercraft knives and gouges and each one is a work of art itself!!
I found Beavercraft a while back, they are active in the online community and their knives have greatly increased my carving game. The quality, and sharpness are comparable to any other knife on the shop and the price point is extremely reasonable. This kit provides all you need to obtain started, the hook knife is amazing for Spoons or other stuff where hollowing or rounding is needed the Sloyd and chip knives have performed beautifully. I love the small strop and compound, not to mention the always required band-aids (nice touch) Amazing kit to throw in the bag while on a hike or travelling!
I have broken blades on gouges before, but these are larger without precluding me from doing detailed work, and they're more durable than my previous, smaller set. I can't imagine any gouging done on carving projects that would ever break these. The handles are powerful and fit well within my hand. The gouge tips, however, didn't come in a particularly sharp state, and I had to sharpen them quite a while to obtain them to the state I wanted them in. Still, they work well in projects of mine. I also like the cloth case; it ties up compactly and that makes it simple to shop without damaging the sharpened tips.
I am so very satisfied that I chose the BeaverCraft wood carving chisel set SC01. I was considering the more expensive alternatives but one thing changed my mind. A few months earlier I had purchased a BeaverCraft carving knife that I was very impressed with. The quality is obvious right out of the box, so I decided to go ahead and see if the quality of their carving knives extended to their carving kits. I am very satisfied that I went with BeaverCraft. The quality and craftsmanship is outstanding. Five stars plus without a doubt.
Received this without the described leather strop, and wrote to the company. They immediately responded and are sending that. The chisel came ready to use, sharp, well shaped, and it feels amazing in the hand on my first use of it. I look forward to util zing it for the projects I have in mind.
Once again Beavercraft has proved to be a chop above the competition. The gouge arrived razor sharp out of the box and ready to go. Not only that but it arrived at my doorstep method sooner than I expected. Which honestly is just sill of my their products always arrives quickly and well packaged. If you are looking for amazing quality knives and gouges for a reasonable price, I urge you to check out this gouge, and other Beavercraft products. You will not be disappointed. Have fun a fun hobby, without breaking the bank!
This set of tools are amazing. Sharp right out of the roll, that’s why they contain bandaids! Likes them so much that I am purchasing another set as a retirement show for a coworker! I have several of Beaver Woodcraft products and I have not been disappointed yet!
I accidentally bought this when browsing books on Amazon but it's actually a useful small book. It has easily identifiable pictures with the Irish words underneath and the pronunciation beneath the words. It's short and to the point. It includes common animals and objects with colors and numbers at the end of the book. It also contains a pronunciation tutorial at the end. A few things: it lists the color orange as oráiste but it should actually be flannbhuí. I've seen that table is bord but the book gives another word. Maybe both are correct. I haven't looked up the word yet. The pronunciation tutorial gives "ah" for á. I was under the impression á has an aw sound like in saw or paw. I struggle with broad and slender a a lot so this just adds to my struggle. Overall it's a amazing small book to learn some common words and pronounce them correctly. I can't even be angry that I accidentally purchased it lol.
I've been using them for 3 months and just realized that all forks and knives edges are rusting or the coating is coming off... It definitely does not seem sanitary to use them now.
Amazing looking set, very shiny and elegant looking. They also feel beautiful sturdy in your hand. No signs of rust or wear, we have taken unique care not to soak for long periods. Of note - each piece is individually wrapped upon arrival, be EXTRA careful removing the wrapper from the knives, they are surprisingly sharp and haste may lead to an accidental finger slicing :(
I have more expensive flatware that I don't really like. On a lark I decided to buy this. It's cheap. I like the shape of it better. It fits in your hand and doesn't have pressure points. So far, in my dishwasher, I don't see a bunch of rust like I've seen in other flatware sets I've had. But like I said, It's cheap. The knives seem beautiful stout, but the spoons and forks are thinner and are not as nice. But, that's not saying they are bad. If I was just starting out... perhaps a college student, or getting my first apartment, then these would be just fine. Awesome value if you place it in the right context.
First of all I wish to clarify that this experience that I lived with this set of cutlery may not happen to you in the future, and I hope that this never happens to you. Firstly in the first washing in the dishwasher the cutlery acquired some stains that I could not clean with anything, I wish to clarify that I use a amazing detergent and do not use hot drying in my dishwasher. Second and worst of all, my husband and I at the time of eating our dinner the fork damage our lips, and we noticed that the forks came with imperfections in the metal that literally cut, they left us some little wounds but nothing serious. Absolutely I did not have a amazing experience buying these cutlery.
I was looking to replace flatware that I'd been using for years and was hesitant to order flatware online without feeling the weight before purchase. However, this flatware exceeded my expectations! It was carefully and individually wrapped when it arrived (as to not be scratched) and came in a carefully packaged e weight of the flatware was solid- It is not filmsy or bendable at all.I washed them in the dishwasher before use and they came out extremely clean (no water spots!).
I no longer have to eat with my hands! After 36 years of being a neanderthal, I can finally eat like a civilized human being. I search the shiny metal to be quite fascinating, not as fascinating as fire or the wheel, but still seems to captivate my attention. The cavewoman cleaned these utensils and they still have a luxurious shine to them. These dinglehoppers are beautiful easy and serve their purpose. One to poke things, one to dig things, and two various size hair brushes! Me love!
The edges of the forks were very sharp and felt like they had an edge on them still from machining. Returned as soon as i opened them.
Got these for my dad who has tremors and has a hard time eating with regular utensils. The first time he used them he cried as he didn’t shake like he used to and had more confidence when he ate. He even ate some homemade clam chowder without spilling. These utensils are very stylish and very well created that I bought a second set to have at my house for when he comes to visit. I highly recommend these !!!
These food utensils are great!! I am a retired RN, and I have what’s known as Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD), which consists of (I have 7 of the 8 components) Rheumatoid Arthitis, Systemic Lupus, Systemic Sclerosis w/assoc severe GERD, Polymyositis, Reynauds Disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Sjogrens Syndrome, and Dermatomyositis, the only factor I don’t have. I also have severe Osteoporosis. I encounter severe pain with all of these, and hand spasms, which is why these weighted utensils are excellent! I used a wide-handled set previously, but they weren’t simple to use, or weighted. This BUNMO set is perfectly weighted, and has a knife that has serated edge on one side, smooth butter knife on the other side. Most sets for disabled folks don’t have cutting edges, and are useless. This set also contains 2 spoons of differing sizes. The weighted utensils prevent spasms and spilled meal or soup. I recommend these weighted utensils wholeheartedly!!
My grandma suffers from Parkinson’s and her tremors are terrible. This flatware has helped her have so much more control while eating. I was concerned they would be too massive for her but she does amazing with them.
We loved the weighted silverware. My husband was resently diagnosed with hand tremors. He was having problem eating. This weighted silverware helped tremendously.
Finally I am able to obtain the meal from the plate to my mouth without losing most of the food! It doesn't cancel out the most sever of my tremors, but makes eating a pleasant activity again.
This set of utensils are surprisingly massive but my arthritic mother really likes the weight of them. They are very huge but go well with our other silverware. I would highly recommend.
The utensils are well created and blend in with those used by other diners. Of course, they don't prevent tremors, but they do dampen them so that you can keep something on your fork without it flying into someone's lap. The carrying bag makes it simple to take your own cutlery with you when going to a restaurant. Suggested by my neurologist, and he gave me amazing advice.
Unbelievable for people who have developed a poor tremor in their hands. I could not believe the difference the first time my husband used. I bought a second set for a back up. I just want I could search a better support for his handwriting. The things I've ordered for that were childish or could not be used with pens. You had to buy the entire pen
I ordered these for camping. I really liked that they offered various amounts of forks, spoons, and knives in one package. Finally a company with common sense. I've used about half the box and have no complaints about quality. Packaging could have been a small better for storage reasons. They come in huge box and in sleeves. Kind of hard to shop in a camper.
Simple to use and cost less than what I could buy at store. Clear plastic set has more forks, which is what we use the most of. They are very sturdy. Will be ordering again.
