Chunky flatware is a breath of fresh air in the same way chunky glassware is these days: It’s sculptural, not wiggly; less dainty than other styles; and comfortable to use. So when we spotted the modern, ’50s-inflected silhouette of this Wayfair set in Laura Reilly’s cult-fashion newsletter, Magasin, we couldn’t stop gushing over it to one another—it has all the trappings of classics like Georg Jensen, Mepra, and Alessi, but at a fraction of the price. When we then saw that 150-plus reviewers had rated it 4.6 stars, we had to dig in, and the pot just got sweeter from there.
For one, the whole set is on sale for less than $100. To put that in perspective, similar styles from those standard-bearers can run you upwards of $400 (and in some cases, way more). The unbeatable price tag is just the cherry on top, though. Constructed with 18/10 stainless steel—the best of the best when it comes to quality forks and spoons—you could stick this cutlery in any dishwasher with no concern over oxidation or rust. One commenter, who has “paid no special care to them,” reports six weeks in that there are no detectable spots or scratches.
The look fulfilled one reviewer’s “niche of wanting a more futuristic, simple, and delightful set of silverware.” As for the actual dining experience, one shopper’s friends were swayed to order a set for themselves: “All my friends talked about was how beautiful the set was.” “One of the best purchases I have made to date,” another writes. Others have swiftly summarized it in just a few words: “solid,” “chunky,” “superstylish,” “heavy and so expensive-looking.” We couldn’t agree more! Let your guests think you sourced the flatware from some cool design shop unless you want to let them in on the secret.
