Hello fellow amazonians,
Since I’m benefitting from the reviews of others, I might as well give one myself. So here’s my take on this product:
I sure can recommend this Oneida silverware set. It’s probably not the highest quality (18/10 steel, other Oneida sets would have some higher value I think), which is adequately reflected in the price. My set does show some “darkening” streaks… maybe I should better say that it just doesn’t shine as much anymore as when it was new (having it for 1.5 years now, no dishwasher though). My personal take is that this “darkening” (on single pieces only, I should add) is due to what I perceive as the lower quality of the steel — which may or may not be true, I’m speaking as a lay person obviously. Having said all this: this is a very appealing design, doesn’t look neither too casual nor too chic, it weighs very well in one’s hand and is balanced well, and the knives cut well. Overall I think this is a very good value for the price. After having debated whether I should buy a higher quality steel for a second set, I decided to buy another set of the Moonchrest, because it simply looks very good (received even compliments on it), and is functional enough for daily use and classy enough to serve guests with. You can tell, I’m happy with my choice. If I had a wish, though, I would have liked the Moonchrest design in that higher value steel that most Oneida silverware products are made of (that’s why I gave four instead of five stars, because to me it’s not the “perfect” product).

When my finance and I were setting up a house, I found some Oneida on clearance at a store going out of business. I bought it for a steal and was very happy. But as time went on, spoons were lost, forks misplaced, etc and we were frequently running out of silverware between dishwasher runs. So here we are a couple years later I decided to get another set. I purchased this as it looked the most similar to what we had and were happy with.
Boy was I wrong! This is WAY nicer than what we had–much sturdier and so pretty! Even my husband, who isn’t known for his his attention to details such as silverware, commented on how much he liked it. We both love it. We aren’t fancy people (no fancy china or anything) but this will look nice for those few dinner parties we do host. Plus it makes scooping out hard ice cream and serving foods much easier. It is simple, yet elegant and feels great in your hand–nice weight, but not unwieldly.
In fact, we were SO pleased with the new set that we decided to get another set with some Christmas $ and give the old set away. However, I paid $54 for the 8-person/45-piece set on Dec 8, 2010 (with free shipping) on Amazon and here we are on Dec 26th and it has now jumped to over $90 when you factor in shipping through Target! I was disappointed and although I was happy with it, I’m not willing to pay almost double less than a month later for the same exact product. My advice would be to add it to your cart and wait for it to be sold by Amazon again in the $50-60 range and snap it up!
