Good deal, same price as the plastic set I get in Tesco every month (only 16 pieces), saves the washing up
Just bought some! Great deal! Thanks
Do they bend? If they do then there's nothing 'value' about them.

Eh ?

If the cutlery is bendy then it won't last very long. Most value cutlery is not very solid.
They're not heavy duty but for the price they're not bad either. Not overly flimsy though if you tried really hard I no doubt you could bend them.
The price suggesting me that Venice is now in China
The pictures on web site show a blunt knife, quality!
Nice price, but I feel guilty buying them. As I know for such a low price, someone further down the line got **** over by Argos.

The reviews all seem quite good, I reserved some to pick up as we never have enough at uni (lazy flatmates who never do the washing up :p). I think you could bend most cutlery unless you spend a lot of money on it, so these seem very good value as long as they do their job
Just reserved one of only 5left
Just hope strong enough to cut wifes gravy

I do hope you're not being serious.

Also i've experienced some of these before from what i know the knives are quite study if not a little guady. But it's £3 good price for a spare set.

Especially when Uri Geller comes round. In fact, if you buy these, you'll have trouble keeping him away.

Yes, we were mate.
Voted hot, as it's a low, low price for such a big pile of metal, and better than eating with cupped hands, but personally I wouldn't buy these (unless perhaps I was buying them for a wedding where the guests were going to be too merry or too immature to care about - and FOR - the cutlery).
To me, the design is bad, both visually (even that small amount of ornamentation they have is unpleasant), and ergonomically.
Bring on the knee-jerk "ooh, you posh ****er" replies.

And yes, they most definitely look like they would bend easily. School canteen cutlery quality.

If you're buying for your household and there are less than 5 or 6 people, you can do better (for about £10, and possibly not from Argos).
you'd buy these for a wedding? lol...

Lol @ your carbon footprint.
Reserved a set thanks, cutlery seems to disappear in this house! Voted hot xx
I have been using this same set for the last 5 years and I don't have a problem with them. I have just examined them to see if I should buy another set and they still look good, so I will pass. The weight and feel are good and they do not bend. I dig in the draw past the more expensive set to get these out every time I eat. The knifes and particularly solid.

They got rid of metal cutlery in my secondary school about 4 years ago, plastic knifes and forks only

I can't really see anything wrong with them ergonomically. Normally I do care about the design and how something looks, but when it comes to cutlery all I do is use them, wash them up and them pop them back in the draw. By saving money with these I can spend the extra £7 from not buying a £10 set on something that I really like. I think a lot antique cutlery looks very nice, but for day-to-day use I just don't see the need to spend lots of money on them

I bought these before, the knives are quite rubbish (very thin at the end, easy to bend, even just using it to spread a lot causes a slight curve) but forks and spoons alright

Be careful when buying these. My friend got these and told me the only ones left were left handed sets.

5!!!! Years
Just reserved one for work as the disposable cutlery is atrocious. he knives can't even cut a slice of fresh bread.

Hopefully these are ok and not uri gellerish like out work ones. The price isn't much more than a pack of disposable ones so worth a try.

Seems a few people here put cutlery into raffles, or draws. In our house we would be more likely to put them in the drawer.

Good spot

great find
Make sure you stir your hot tea quickly as it may get too hot to hold very quickly. This has exactly the same design as the Viner set that I bought - rubbish!

You're one of those people that want the moon on a stick ... for this price you should be grateful that the spoon doesn't melt when you stir your tea never mind get a little hot.
Why can't you just acknowledge like all these other good people that for the money this is a tremendous deal ...

Thanks
I'm a little concerned about if they are seriously bendy / can cut things pretty well.

Need a set for uni & would rather not splash out too much - especially if these are very reasonable

Good deal anyway - have some heat.
Edited by: "Firefly1" 9th Mar 2013
For this price a good deal. Don't expect too much if you don't pay to much..Hot though - good find.
ordered reserved for collection thank op..... bought similar like these for my mil 2 years back on the bogof offer not had any problems at all
Uri Gella approves

Theyre cheap and look it! Got some today. Rough cuts along the edges and knife bends as mentioned before. Fine for cheap and cheerful eating tho.
