Flatware is an essential part of a table setting! See why I love Mikasa French Countryside Flatware.
Shopping for cutlery can be difficult with all the choices in patterns, brands and price points on the market. It can be difficult to choose because we all want value, great looks and durability for our money! I used to have an extremely inexpensive set from Ikea, but it really didn’t stay nice looking for long and became very scratched to the point that I decided a year ago to purchase new flatware.
After visiting tons of retail and online stores for flatware and looking at several different patterns I purchased the French Countryside pattern made by Mikasa.
So here is why I love it:
This 18/8 stainless steel flatware pattern is a set my family of four uses everyday. I purchased 8 sets of 6 piece place settings. Each place setting contains a dinner fork, dinner knife, soup spoon, salad fork, teaspoon and steak knife.
If you’ve never heard of the American company Mikasa, it’s a trusted and recognized leader in dinnerware. For over half a century, quality and workmanship have been synonymous with this worldwide brand.
I love this classic pattern! It really looks beautiful with my white plates and my Dwell tablecloth and napkins, as well as white linens.
Look at the lovely bead pattern and the tapered handles!
They are very solid to handle (yet not too heavy); this is a reflection of how well made they are.
They also are really easy to care for: they wash up beautifully in the dishwasher and since they are made from 18/10 stainless steel, they never need polishing!
I highly recommend this pattern from Mikasa….it is beautiful, durable, kid-proof and diswasher safe!
Do you own any pieces from Mikasa?
