If Viners knocked 90% off their inflated RRPs the stuff still wouldn't be worth buying.

Check out the comments in previous threads. It's cheap for a reason - it's badly made and it isn't worth buying. You really wouldn't want to share your house with it. oO

I have viners cutlery and have never had an issue with it, good quality, has not tarnished at all. Can't speak for the other products mind

Bought some cutlery at Christmas and it started to rust after the first wash. Very disappointed in the cutlery...

Quality brand. Quality prices. Heat added, purchase made :-)

Another disappointed customer, its ok for a cheap 2nd set but is certainly not a premium product as it suggests. Read other threads.

I personally would not buy again.

You're being sarcastic, surely? This stuff is junk.

I have once ordered from Viners during a sale like this and spent £200+. I was very disappointed with the quality and later found that the stock is supplied by Oneida which is an American company. Viners is just a subsidiary of Oneida. I returned the majority of the order.

So, for the price, who sells the best cutlery?

Had some viners cutlery for a few years and it's been fine, however I have a pan which warped on first use & now doesn't sit flat on my ceramic hob. Real pain in the backside as it heats unevenly.

I've got no problems with the cutlery and glassware I picked up at Christmas. Very good value for what I paid. Also got some Anchor Hocking tempered glass bowls, jugs and dishes - the same quality Anchor Hocking gear that I would have paid a lot more for elsewhere.

It wasn't all good though. Viners pans and cookware are atrocious. The cast iron griddle is scorched, the frying pans warp under even moderate heat and the saucepan lids shattered pretty soon after I got them. It's all made out of cheap, thin metal. Certainly won't touch their cookware ever again - thankfully it was cheap.

Can't help you there I'm afraid. But I can tell you that Viners is cheap tacky cutlery sold at a low price for a good reason - it's not worth having. Viners was once a quality British cutlery manufacturer. Everything was made in Sheffield. Now it's just a low-end Oneida brand and you'd be better off with Tesco cutlery.

Can't say I agree with that. The quality of the cutlery certainly isn't what it once was, but it's not any worse than the stuff in Tesco, Sainsbury's or Dunelm. I paid around £20 for a 48 piece set, which is just silly cheap and the quality is totally reasonable. Certainly not worth £100 or whatever the silly RRP was, but £30 wouldn't have been unreasonable when compared to stuff I looked at on the high street.

^ This. newbold is grossly exaggerating. I bought a set of the Rattail stuff with the 50 year guarantee. I don't like that the bowls of the spoons are very shallow, the forks are very "flat" not curved, the teaspoons are so tiny you cant stir a mug of tea with them, and the cutlery in general is quite small. The only items I like are the dinner knives which are nice and big and heavy. They lost their shine quite quickly too. However... I could have sent them back but chose not to, so that was up to me. I've had some good bargains though, including a 2 litre batter jug for £5, which is lovely heavy quality.
