My mom gave me this set about 4 yrs ago to replace my set from my wedding of 34 yrs. ago. I love this set. It's an elegant everyday set. Read some earlier reviews and agree with all but two. The review about them being too bulky to fit in the flatware holder and dishwasher made me think she had a holder that was abnormally small and she couldn't figure out to turn and the piece ever so slightly to fit in the dishwasher. Love these so much that I would like to order more teaspoons(needed for cereal and coffee, always running out).Looking for replacement spoons now!
