Is what you sell brand new?

What does "18/10 Stainless Steel" mean?  
The first number relates to the chromium content within the stainless steel and the second to the nickel content. These elements give the steel its stainless properties. "18/10" is the typical composition of the alloy although it is not unusual to see 18/8 as well.  See our Brief History of Stainless Steel.

How do I order more than one set?
Once you place a product in your cart, you will be able to add to the quantity on your cart page.  Enter as many as you need and click on Update Totals before proceeding to Checkout.  - How to order more than one set.

What is the difference between flatware set configurations?
Each stainless steel set we sell may be different in what is included.  Some come in box sets, some come in traditional Place size....and some come in the larger Continental size.  Please read each product description carefully to determine what you are getting.  We will mention specifically what the size is on every product detail page.

What is the difference between a 4-piece flatware place setting and a 5-piece place setting?
The 4-piece place setting consists of a fork, salad fork, teaspoon and knife.  The 5-piece place setting consists of the same pieces with a place spoon added  (aka: oval soup spoon)

What is the difference between the "Place Spoon" and the "Teaspoon"?
The Place Spoon is the larger spoon in a 5-pc setting - while the Teaspoon is the smaller spoon in the 5-pc setting.  Some people my call the Place Spoon a Tablespoon....but technically this is incorrect as a Tablespoon is actually considered a service item (AKA Serving Spoon) - and would be much too large to fit in your mouth.  Further, some people confuse the Teaspoon with the Iced Tea Spoon.  As mentioned, the Teaspoon is the smaller spoon in the 5-pc set, while the Iced Tea Spoon is a spoon with a much longer handle used to stir iced tea.
