In our home we are thinking of buying a new cutlery set as our existing knives, forks and spoons have seen far better days! My significant other on Kitchen & Cook Shop, insists on having a 24 piece cutlery set, whilst I only desire that it be modern and stylish, and not too expensive!
With these parameters in mind, I have been looking around on the Amazon UK website and have narrowed down my choices to those in this article. These cutlery sets are all those that I would consider modern in design and of good value too.
Villeroy & Boch 24 Piece Cutlery Sets
Quality lifestyle brand Villeroy & Boch have been making amazing products for your home since its foundation in 1748. They are well known for their ceramic and glass homeware products, but they also produce many cutlery sets for your dining pleasure. They produce a multitude of cutlery designs at a range of prices that suit most budgets. Villeroy & Boch cutlery is very highly rated on Amazon.co.uk, with all of their sets getting positive reviews from happy buyers.
The design of cutlery is a very personal choice. I quite like cutlery with a slightly rounded handle, and two of the Villeroy & Boch options below look as though they might suit my needs well. The first choice seen here is from the Vivo range and costs around £40, whilst the other two options here are priced at about £70.
Our other choices in 24 piece cutlery sets
My partner has always wanted a cutlery set from Viners, after the set she previously had was ‘borrowed and never returned’ by a disgruntled ex-boyfriend! My parents also use Viners cutlery and they certainly are of high quality. The set I quite like is the Viners Angel 24 Piece Cutlery Gift Box Set. There are a great many positive reviews on this Viners cutlery set, proving without doubt that it is a high quality product. The cutlery is made of 18:0 Stainless Steel, dishwasher safe and comes with a 25 year guarantee.
Another cutlery set that I like is the Judge Windsor BF50 24 Piece 18/10 Stainless Steel Cutlery Set. It is great value for a 24 piece cutlery set (at around £25) and they are perfect for every day use, although some buyers have complained of rust appearing after a while. They look easy to hold, and I would consider them to be a perfectly fine cutlery set. Judge make many different household and kitchen products, the majority of them very well rated, so there is some confidence to be had in this cutlery set.
Russell Hobbs is a well known and established brand and I was interested to find that this British manufacturer also made cutlery. Not surprisingly, the Russell Hobbs Deluxe Vienna 24-Piece Stainless Steel Cutlery Set is very highly rated, as most of their products are. This is a great looking cutlery set with a timeless design. It is also dishwasher safe and has an excellent 15 year guarantee.
Our final choice
We have yet to buy our cutlery set but the final choice seems to be between the Villeroy & Boch Vivo Group New Fresh Basic 24 Piece Cutlery Service and the Russell Hobbs Deluxe Vienna 24-Piece Stainless Steel Cutlery Set. The Russell Hobbs cutlery set about the same price the Villeroy & Boch set, but there is a certain timeless quality to the V&B set that I like, depsite it being part of their more ‘budget’ priced items. Perhaps I shall buy both – The Villeroy & Boch set for special occasions and the Russell Hobbs set for every day use!
