I was little wary about ordering this flatware set since there were some reviews saying they rusted. However, I loved the design so much I ordered them anyway thinking perhaps the other customers got defective sets. Sadly, after the first wash in the dishwasher, I can see small rust spots starting to form. I left a voicemail for Oneida explaining the issue and asking for a call back. It's been over a week and they didn't return my call. One star for both Oneida and their product. I am returning them.
