Our family prefers large spoons and forks and this set had the perfect size of both. The flatware is well balanced in your hand and feels well made. Some reviewers wrote that the set will show finger prints, this is true and why I gave it 4 stars. However, I am very pleased with the overall appearance, size and shape. I do not use a dishwasher so I cannot speak to the rust issues that some have mentioned, but they have come out sparkling after hand washing. If you like simple clean lines and large utensils I would recommend this set. Also for those who want to know the set is made in China; It does have a disclaimer that it is made in factories with fair labor practices.
