Needed a new set of every day flatware. The existing 18/0 Oneida flatware (not the Community series----this was the casual, every day line) was looking beat up after twenty years.

The finish on this new WMF set is beautiful, and they come out of the dishwasher sparkling clean---something that did not happen with the every day Oneida set (a higher end Oneida 18/10 "Community" set--very formal "best flatware" pattern--does come out nice and clean as well). The dishwasher is a mid-range Bosch, not a dishwasher that is failing or on its last legs. And yes, it uses Finish tabs and Jet-Dry. The message here is that 18/8 or 18/10 flatware is worth the extra money, and more carefree to maintain if you use a dishwasher. With 18/0, one was constantly rubbing out spots or scouring the utensil AFTER it emerged from the dishwasher.

Bear in mind that this pattern is designed by Hepp and sold under the WMF label in the USA. WMF and Hepp are under the same ownership. In Germany, you would buy Carlton with a Hepp label. If you go to WMF's USA website, you will see a menu tab for Hepp, and in their flatware line you will find Carlton. It is very popular for restaurants (Hepp's specialty is restaurant supply), which speaks of its durability. Pieces feel very nice in the hand. Tablespoon probably a bit too large for a woman's mouth, about right for an average size man. The tablespoons seem to be "bistro size", not surprising since Hepp is a major restaurant supplier. There are other WMF patterns with smaller spoons if this is an issue.

WMF's 18/10 Cromargan line is a notch or two below their top of the line Cromargan Protect line---Cromargan-Protect sets sell for $500-1000, and are what people in Germany use for their "best flatware", if they can afford it.

I ordered this thinking it was the same pattern I had a few pieces of. It wasn't but I Like it better. The pieces are bigger than I expected, but are beautifu, well balanced and a joy to use. So far it is holding up well to frequent use and dishwashings.

I have been looking for literally years for a set of flatware. Decided I needed to just take the leap and purchase something. These are nice heavy pieces. Yes, the tablespoons are large. We use them for soup. The spoon is a bit large for me but not impossible to use. A five year old might have difficulty but could handily use the teaspoon. This product is from Vietnam which is stamped on some of the pieces. The other thing of note is that it is shiny. If you want a satin finish (I did ) you may not like these. After careful consideration we decided the pros outweighed the cons and decided to keep the set. We did purchase a second set because eight just didn't seem like enough pieces. The second set was also made in Vietnam but was packaged differently from the first set. The serving pieces were protected with an inner box. By the way, the serving pieces are really nice. Large serving spoons and a nice butter knife. We decided to get two complete sets vs an additional service for four because of the additional serving pieces included. It was much more of a bargain that way. Buying two complete sets made the price point more than I had wanted to spend but overall we are happy with the set and glad we have the additional servers.

So I splurged on this set of flatware. And I've been thrilled with my decision. High quality feel, good weight, clean easily, and no issues with scratching the finish.
