The fork is like a cat food fork as it only has 3 prongs instead of the usual 4 so its quite hard to get certain foods of your plate !!

Peas would be an interesting battle!

I bought these as a temp fix when I moved into my first flat, the spoons are very flexible as are the forks, the forks are now used for the dogs food and the rest are "emergency".

We've used them for a few parties and had no problems at all. Very happy with them as spares and much better than the plastic alternatives.

You don't need to defend them just because you've posted the deal. It's a great price for what they are, was just saying they are a bit flexible, they bend back into place though.

My partner has bought these for our new apartment insisting they will be okay. I'm not so sure and know they will end up being "back up" cutlery.

But heat from me!

Ordered 3 with even 15% discount..

Thanks.

For anyone on a low budget trying to furnish a flat its a good deal, not everyone has the option of being able to upgrade.

My girlfriend had these and they really are awful. Better than using plastic but still really bad! I bought her a better set as I hated using that 3 prong fork and so did everyone who came to visit.

Cold.

Think these are great for extras for parties etc.

Spoons from Ikea.


Some people consider cutlery from Ikea as the 4th emergency service,

Got these, really good value, but the bloody forks are terrible!

£1.59 cant go wrong!!

I bought these for the crewroom at work. For £1.59 they're OK but you can get a much better set for about a fiver at Ikea anyway.

are these flat packed

Very good.

"are these flat packed" Lol..... Oh ya..

They are almost as cheap as plastic cutlery - might get a couple of packs in for upcoming parties

And everyone goes home thinking - "jeez those forks were bendy, times must be tough in that household - and the yellow & blue themed balloons hovering over the meatballs ...what were they all about?"

Uri Geller would love these......

Thats nots a fork, thats a trident!

Three pronged fork?! These are straight from hell and have personally been signed by Satan. Voted hot.

Some people probably lack dinner table etiquette with regard to the three pronged fork so let me explain- it's designed as a dessert fork! Not a dinner fork. I pity the chav that buys this set for ill suited purposes.

Well said! I won't be looking to upgrade my forks until next year at the earliest.

Some people taste cat food for a living, others - there are some, believe me - just eat it, so there's a good target market, as well as the home starters, people on budgets, party ware etc.

didnt know you culd buy online from ikea! thanks.

Was at Ikea yesterday. if you have a family card you can get 2 breakfasts for 99p with free unlimited hot drinks. Also in the upstairs cafe ( weekdays) free hot drinks which are really nice. I sampled a latte, cappacino and a hot choclate. well they were free.....

As for the cutlery you get what you pay for. we bought a 6.99 24 piece set.

Ooooh goood point will pick up a couple of sets x

Got some of these before I came to university and I must admit, I was a bit unsure as to what they would be like when I looked at them (reminded me of school cutlery - very thin and uncomfortable / not easy to use).

Despite this, I have been very pleasantly surprised. They are very nice to use, and contrary to what a few people have mentioned, I have had no problem with them bending and no problem with eating with them (peas are very easy to eat :p).

Would definitely recommend - heat added

What a joke of a company for a Nationwide store - they still don't deliver to Scotland!!

Until they do they won't get any of my Scotch bank notes ...:(

We've got these at work they're alright - forks are a bit of a pain when trying to eat spaghetti.

Got to be much heat for that price.
