The original, high quality, Viners went bust a long, long time ago. Since then it's just been a 'brand' owned and exploited by other companies - and selling junk cutlery.

Any warranty is now as worthless as the cutlery has been for years.

You didn't bother to read the rest of the thread then?

Viners is a United Kingdom brand of cutlery, kitchenware and dinnerware products, founded in 1901 in Sheffield, England by Adolphe Viener and his sons. By the 1960s, it had expanded to subsidiaries in Ireland, Australia and France. Since the late 20th century, the brand has been owned by Oneida of the United States. Viners went into administration on 30 October 2014.[1]

Viners quality is awful. Dont buy!

What do you use then? A recommendation is much more helpful than just a "don't buy!"

I wish I had more knowledge to share in this area. However I have bought these in the past and even the Sainsbury's own brand cutlery I already have is better quality, stronger, and firmer. Just don't waste your money on these.

I have bought Viners Rattail cutlery a couple of years ago. The best stuff that has (had!_) the fifty year guarantee. It is very thick, not bendable, the knives are lovely and heavy and they were really shiny until recently (my constant dishwasher use will dull anything). What I would say about them though, is that theyre too "flat". ie. the bowls of the spoons are very shallow, the forks arent very curved, etc. But I would definitely say that my set is far from a waste of money and will still be going strong long after I'm fed up looking at them.

not cutlery


omg wrote loads where's it gone

not cutlery I know but I have a set of Viners pans that are nearly 20 years old and I have to say that apart from being a bit worn around the edges they are as good as new. I didn't know any of the above and it's sad to think that a genuine recommendation for the brand would be useless now. re the cutlery, it's still a good price and I'd be tempted to give them a whirl if they can be found.

Which just goes to show that you shouldn't trust Wikipedia for factual information.

I have had 3 sets of viners cuttlery over the last few years, and they have all been great, only replaced as they seem to go missing
