Ikea Bonus Cutlery Set
Advantages: Affordable, look nice and very worth the money that they cost
Disadvantages: Scratch easy, quite thin and wide
When I was moving into my flat, living at home prior and having all mod cons and comforts provided for me I didn't half have a lot to get and limited funds! I thought it was going to be simple to gradually get what I wanted over time but quite simply I was shocked at how much I needed and right at that minute! I needed loads of things for the kitchen and so headed off to Ikea remembering seeing the catalogue for the place and thinking it seemed rather cheap and was hopeful I would be able to bag some bargains...which I really did!
I spotted these cutlery sets at £1.59 for 16 pieces and couldn't believe my eyes. Four of each forks, knives, tablespoons and teaspoons all looking plain but nice enough...I grabbed a set and the following week went back to the store to grab another two sets to make sure my drawer in the kitchen was filled with them so I wouldn't run out!
The packaging in simple. They are contained within a white cardboard open front box where I am told that they are from Ikea and that they are indeed a 16 'Bonus' Cutlery Set. Thats it really. It really is simple in its design then inside you get four of each utensil contained within see-through plastic to protect them.
Well this set simply is great, which is why I went back and grabbed another 2 sets while I knew they were still there! I think these offer amazing value for money and that you seriously can't go wrong with them!
So they are silver in colour and I assume that they are stainless steel though nowhere am I told about what material they are made up from and not a word is said on the cutlery itself so like I say they are plain in appearance.
They are rather wide, smooth to the touch and sturdy enough. The edges are smooth enough though they are not all that thick and all in all they are practical to use though they do scratch a bit easy.
On the fork there are three prongs, the knives arnt all that cerated so don't go thinking you can cut tough meat with ease cos it can be a struggle. Really there is nothing to be said about the spoons, they are angled enough and simple yet again to use.
Like I have said already I really like this plain cutlery set. They are that though...plain and ideal for students and the likes! A great buy!
Only available in Ikea stores.
