I have worked with Surpahs many times in the past and I am consistently impressed with the high quality and low cost of their items. With this in mind, I was very happy to review for them again. It was really wonderful, because it was for something I have been wanting to replace and upgrade. When my husband and I moved in together many years ago, we each brought our flatware from our apartments. It sort of became one big mess of mismatched cheap pieces that we’ve been using all this time. It was nice to “grow up” and get some quality flatware… and a matching set!
The initial impression of the set was very positive. The design is very basic, and that is what gives it elegance. The overall design looks very European. The pieces are solid, sturdy construction yet lightweight, delicate to hold. The spoons held up to solidly frozen ice cream!
The handles are very generous in length. I thought this would make them awkward to eat with, but it actually provided great balance. The “head” of each piece is narrow and long. This makes them very comfortable to eat with. With the better balance and smaller shape, I’ve noticed that my four-year-old is able to eat more neatly. I did find the soup spoons a bit shallow, but nothing that takes away from the enjoyment of eating with them… you just need to take smaller bites.
They have held up well to repeated runs through both handwashing and the dishwasher. I have not noticed any damage, staining, or tarnishing. We liked the original set so much that we bought a second set and I am likely to buy a third set to make sure we have plenty for larger gatherings. We’re very happy with these! A great value!
