We recently downsized and true to my age, I got confused. I put all of my flatware in a box that was going to Goodwill! I did not realize this until after the move when we had no flatware at all! We used our good silverware for about a week. We replaced our Oneida flatware with more Oneida flatware. It is sturdy, easy to clean, comfortable to hold and really lasts, unless you give it away!
