If you're willing to invest a little more in flatware, the FÃ¶rnuft 20-Piece Flatware Set from IKEA is a really good value. The set is well-made, and it contains pieces that are well suited for both casual and formal dining. The set's flatware is dishwasher-safe, but like most flatware sets, you should handwash each piece before using it. The set's stainless-steel construction is more resilient than cheaper titanium or carbon flatware, and it's less likely to scratch or dent. The handles are small and thin, so they're easy to grasp. The handles have a slight curve, which helps your fingers grip them, and, combined with the flatware's slick, smooth surfaces, they make for comfortable use. The set comes with three spoons, three forks, three knives, three dessert spoons, and two serving forks, plus a wooden spoon, a salt shaker, a pepper shaker, and a tea strainer. The serving forks, dessert spoons, and spoons have small, round ends, which makes them less suitable for eating salad. The knife blades are shorter than average, but they serve the purpose well. The included sugar spoon and coffee spoon are both bigger than average, and both are ideal for using with coffee. The FÃ¶rnuft 20-Piece Flatware Set is cheaper than most stainless steel flatware sets, and it's durable, well-made, and dishwasher-safe. The set's spoons, forks, and knives are well-balanced, and their overall shape makes them comfortable to use. It's recommended that you handwash each piece before using it for the first time, but, if you don't, the dishwasher will do a fine job of cleaning it.
The IKEA Dragon 20-Piece Flatware Set offers a nice balance of price and quality. Unlike some of the other flatware sets we tested, the IKEA set has a solid feel, and we don't suspect it'll break easily. This set is forged from stainless steel, so it's less likely to scratch and tarnish than, say, ceramic or glass. The set includes 6 forks, 6 knives, 6 spoons, and 6 dinner tongs, so it's a good starter set, but it lacks some serving pieces, such as a salad fork and a cake server, that are standard on cheaper sets. The handles are plastic, but the set is dishwasher safe, and the utensils are relatively lightweight, so they're easy to maneuver. The set comes with a lifetime warranty, so if anything does go wrong, IKEA will replace it at no cost to you.
Flatware can be one of the more expensive items in your kitchen, so it's always a good idea to buy flatware that will last. The flatware in the Ikea Sedlig flatware set is rust-resistant, and it's dishwasher-safe. The handles are made from polypropylene, which doesn't scratch as easily as other materials, and it's light, so it's more comfortable to use. The silverware is flatware, so it doesn't roll around as much as other flatware does. The set isn't as fancy as other flatware sets, but it's a good set that will last you many years. The spoons, forks, and knives are all roughly the same size, so they're all easy for one person to use, and there's no confusion over spoons and forks. The set is 30" wide, so it's big enough to serve four people, and the knife and fork blades are wide enough to cut through most vegetables.
The FRNUFT 40-piece flatware set from Ikea is a practical and attractive choice. The set is made of durable stainless steel, and although the utensils are easy to clean, we don't recommend putting them in the dishwasher. They have a smooth, comfortable feel, and they feel more substantial than sets from other manufacturers. The set also includes several different types of utensils, such as a salad fork, dessert fork, and teaspoon, as well as a fork and spoon for serving fish. The set comes in an attractive box with a handle on top, so you can conveniently store the set when it's not in use. The set is dishwasher safe, and it comes with a set of cleaning instructions, so there's no need to put them through a wash with soap. The FRNUFT 40-piece flatware set from Ikea is a compelling value, and it offers a lot of versatility.
Ikea's stainless steel flatware is as durable as it is attractive. The utensils are dishwasher-safe, and the flatware is stain-resistant, too, so it's ideal for busy households. The handles are flat and wide, and they feel sturdy in the hand. The utensils are rounded, so they're not ideal if you have small hands. The spoons are long and curved, and the fork tines are slightly bent, so they're comfortable to use. The spoon and fork are curved slightly at the top, so they're easy to use while eating. The handles are flat, so they're easy to grasp. The spoon is slightly longer and thinner than the fork, so it's ideal when eating soup. The fork is slightly shorter and thicker than the spoon, so it's ideal when eating salad. The dessert/salad fork is longer, so it is ideal for eating dessert and salads.
It may cost a little more than many flatware sets, but we think the MOPSIG set is worth it. It's durable, well-made, and dishwasher-safe, and it's attractive enough to have out on the table for everyday meals, but casual enough that you wouldn't feel bad about not using it. The 16-piece set comes with four of each fork, knife, spoon, and teaspoon, so you'll have plenty to choose from. The pieces are small, so they're easy to store, and because they're all made of stainless steel, they're also easy to clean. The MOPSIG set is more expensive than many other sets, but we think it's worth it.
