Best Kitchen Silverware Sets Under $100

Updated on November 4, 2010

Make Christmas dinner and any other family dinner into a special occasion by carefully selecting your silverware set. It is not necessary to spend hundreds of dollars to find good quality silverware and these are the best sets I have found for less than $100 - in fact - most of them are less than $50.

It is amazing how your perception of a meal changes based on the utensils you are using. No wonder fast food is so bad for us. You eat it with your hands and wolf it down in minutes.

Recent studies show a strong correlation between how long is spent eating a meal with obesity rates. Needless to say - the USA eats fastest and has the highest obesity rate in the world.

So - slow up, take your time and enjoy your meals with decent silverware.

If you want a product stands out in any kitchen, the Hampton Forge Presidente silverware is a great choice. It is a flatware set for four persons, crafted form 18/0 stainless steel, really durable and tarnish free.

It has a mirror finish with a simple ribbed edge design that matches up nicely with any dinner ware set. This set includes dinner knives, dinner forks, salad forks, teaspoon and dinner spoons. All of them dishwasher safe as long as you use a non-lemon or non-acidic dish washing detergent. You are not just buying yourself a great product, but you are saving yourself from needing to hand wash your tableware.

Four is a perfect size I think - if you entertain more -simply buy several sets. At less than $50 - these are a great buy.

International Simplicity set is a silverware set that has a polished finish and can service up to 8 people. It includes 8 dinner knives, steak knives, dinner forks, salad forks, teaspoons and dinner spoons. In addition to that there is also a hostess set with sugar spoon, butter knife, pierced spoon, tablespoon and cold meat fork. All in all you get 53 pieces total.

This is a lot heavier and better quality than you would expect for the price. Most people I spoke to were surprised at the weight and high quality. Perhaps not quite as substantial as the previous set - it is less than half the price - so not surprising.

These sell for around $35 - a great buy at that price.
