Well, that’s a nice family portrait of cutlery isn’t it? They call this a starter set and I’d say it’s a start to a large family and an adventure (pun intended). The International Silver Adventure is a flatware setting for 8 people. This includes a hostess set that consists of a large tablespoon, 1 pierced tablespoon and 1 cold meat fork (what would make it a hot meat fork?). The full set includes salad forks, dinner forks, dinner knives, dinner spoons and teaspoons.
It’s made of 18/0 stainless steel and is a good price for a complete set to fit a new kitchen.

It’s the end of 2015 and 2016 is barging in whether we want it to or not. We’ve taken a look at what were the most popular posts in the last year and wanted to highlight them. So let’s start at the top:
In first place by a huge margin is anything even remotely related to Nutella. It is such a popular topic on this blog that we even made a category for Nutella. And the shown Nutella knife (or Spife) was the top of the charts. You people are crazy for Nutella.
In second place is the Artaste Rain Stainless Steel Flatware which a lot of people really liked and the feedback after purchasing was quite good. And I have to say this is one of the nicer and better staged photos for cutlery that we’ve seen in a long time.
And in third place is not cutlery or flatware but a wonderful piece of artwork. The Vintage Kitchen Silverware Canvas Wall Art of a Spoon, Knife & Fork was a post from 2014 that continues to be a very popular item in 2015.
And an honorable mention goes out to two celebrity related cutlery items. “This is not Silverware by Tim Burton. It’s by Isaïe Bloch.” and “Salvador Dali – Ménagère (Cutlery Set) 1957” both seemed to settle a lot of discussion about who made what and when and what it sold for.
Have a great 2016 everyone!
This is a rather nice set at a good price. From Lenox the Portola flatware set includes twelve 5-piece place settings and one 5-piece hostess set. The 5-piece setting is the standard dinner fork, dinner knife, soup spoon, salad fork and teaspoon. The hostess set consists of a sugar spoon, butter serving knife, cold meat fork, serving tablespoon and a pierced tablespoon. It is 18/10 tarnish resistant stainless steel and dishwasher safe.
It’s a subtle design with a little bead work edging at the end of each handle. This set is a great gift or replacement for your old kitchen’s cutlery.

A while back we did a week of reviews on the various types of pizza cutters. The nice folks at KitchenAid have sent me their new pizza wheel that is part of the Architect Series. The first thing that struck me about this wheel style cutter is the heft and weight, this thing is built for pizzeria kitchen duty. It has a nice ergonomic handle with finger guard and the wheel is made of stainless steel. The handle fits the hand well and has a good angle for downward pressure when cutting. You can cut more than pizza with this, I tried cardboard as well and it didn’t have any problem (no kidding, be careful you don’t cut through a pizza box). It can be disassembled for cleaning but I don’t see the need for that as it’s dishwasher safe.
