What should I know about stainless flatware

sueatmo | Jan 2, 201111:08 AM

My old stainless flatware, Easton by Oneida, has become worn and I have lost pieces after the roughly 15 years I have owned it. I am pretty happy with its service, but I am ready for a new pattern. I found an online retailer, http://www.onlinestainless.com/ that has very extensive offerings and what seem to be good prices.

I understand that stainless flatware can be 18/0, 18/8 or 18/10, with the last ratio being the hardest. Does anyone who has 18/0 or 18/8 stainless flatware have probs with these metal blends? I can't help noticing that Henckels and Cuisinart carry lower priced sets and place settings. How do they do that? Is the quality that low?

I am interested in good stuff at a good price. I would like to hear from anyone who had good knowledge along these lines. And if you've bought from onlinestainless, I'd like to hear from you too!

Thanks in advance.
