Eat it up. Yum.

"Get your elbows off the table." "Slow down, this isn't a race." "Stop scraping your teeth across that fork." "That's not how you hold a knife!" "You disappoint me." Welcome to my every meal from ages 5 through 18. Now you know why I eat alone. In the bathtub. With my fingers.

That's a lot of "flatware". Spoons aren't really flat though. Am I over thinking this?

I'm just hanging out, really.

That makes for 8 teaspoons and 8 dessert spoons. I'm a slob and I'll happily stir my tea then eat my ice cream with the same spoon, but I'm a lousy example.

I bought one of the 58 piece sets last time, and I am very happy with it. The flatware is nice and heavy and looks great.

I actually wish they were selling packs of just teaspoons. My husband is the Death of teaspoons; we're down to two, and i keep one on my desk, away from him.

Check Goodwill. You won't get a matched set, but you can buy teaspoons by the truckload.

Its things like this that make me think Woot.com doesn't understand it's customer base very well.

Hmmm...I thought the Mikasa 18/0 was a typo after seeing the Windsor brand, and knowing that what I currently have is 18/10...I learned something new...

Mark? is that you? I can SEE you holding your fork (and spoon) like the handlbars of your Big Wheel! No wonder you're single - AGAIN! Where did I go wrong? (OK, maybe that's not the best question to ask at this juncture...)

WMF is the silver standard. I love my WMF pans and flatware. And I'm a bicky pitch.

I thought it was "Eat 'em up. Yum" or possibly "Eat them up. Yum."

Of course, the WootGods might be aware of this, and are simply avoiding a potential copyright issue...

Sounds like he may have a heroin problem. Missing or burnt spoons is usually a key warning sign lol!

But then they won't stack nicely in the drawer. I can't be the only one who doesn't like playing pickup sticks when reaching for flatware.

Great call. I saw the WMF sets (with 18/10) first, and my eyes tricked me into reading 18/10 for the Mikasa sets. It in fact is 18/0...

not to deter you from buying our fine wares, but what you've cited is the very reason why i own a hanging flatware set.
(more drawer space is nice, too.)

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

True. Mismatched spoons won't stack neatly. No spoons don't stack neatly either. Given the options, I'd rather have something, at least.

Yay! I'm so glad that someone else got this! My favorite line is,

I am so wishing these would last until the 30th so I could afford a set.

Burning question: What sorts of plates go best with WMF flatware?

Oh man. I just got 2 sets and one of the sets has the wrong large forks in it. They don't match the rest of the flatware or the large forks in the other set. Flatware drawer disaster.
