When I saw this in the store this morning I thought to myself that ‘yeah, I could do with some new cutlery’. And €6.49 instead of €44.99 for a set of six place settings with a fork, knife, soup spoon and a teaspoon was ok. Anyway I picked up the leaflet and I’m still convinced I’m misreading what it’s saying. What it is actually saying is €45 for a place setting of a fork knife spoon and a teaspoon. €11.25 per piece. It wasn’t until I went online to check that I actually believed it wasn’t an error.
What this is saying is that it costs €300 for a dining set of stainless steel flat ware. This isn’t silver. This hasn’t had a bit of silver waved in its direction. This is your common or garden molten steel dropped into a mold with thousands of other fork/knife/spoon molds and polished in a big pot. I simply don’t get it.
