silver gift items for housewarming with price
When you purchase a casual flatware set, it’s quite hard to go wrong with any of the brands you buy. However, it does appear that Oneida is the top seller in this category with their stainless steel sets of 24-pieces, 53-pieces, or 65-pieces. The Oneida Flight Stainless Flatware 24-Piece Flatware Place Setting, Service for 4 sells for $35.
You will get a 24-piece mirror-finish flatware set with four 5-piece settings and 4 extra teaspoons. Each setting includes a standard dinner fork, salad fork, spoon, knife, and teaspoon. Oneida’s flatware is made of corrosion resistant 18/8 stainless steel and is dishwasher safe. The 25 year warranty also assures you that the set will last. Although not exactly a wedding gift quality, its Oneida set makes a great housewarming gift. One complaint among users is that the pieces are actually too lightweight, other than that they will all say Oneida makes a great flatware sets.
The 53-piece Oneida flatware set is service for 8 and sells for about $80. However, if you anticipate larger gatherings at your house, then consider the Oneida Satin Garnet 65-Piece Flatware Set with Caddy, Service for 12 ($130) – a great collection looks stylish and will last forever. Henckels makes a 45-piece flatware set for slightly more than $70 that ranks high and the Wallace Terrace 102-piece Flatware Set with bonus caddy goes for about $70.
We all run into the problem at some point in our lives with a mismatched set of flatware. We either lose a piece or break something and wish we had a replacement ready to fill in.
I went to Oneidas website to see just what their policy is on discontinued silverware sets and how to find replacements if I need. They say that they can only do their best to notify customers at least 6 months in advance before they discontinue any product. Oneida also says that most patterns are made with the idea they will be around forever.
When I search online for “discontinued Oneida flatware”, the largest group of results came from eBay (as usual). I went to eBay and found that it literally lists 1000’s of flatware sets or pieces for sale everyday. Rest assured that your set is probably listed if you have to purchase something on eBay. My advice is always start by contacting Oneida.com directly through their customer service department to see if your set is still available or if there are replacement pieces available through them.
