I love Lakeland products. Have bought 2 sets of cutlery and 8 of almost everything else on offer over a year ago. Beautiful cutlery, however not dishwasher safe, over time almost everything has become stained, which is very difficult to remove. 5 stars if washed by hand, however this was to be used everyday therefore 1 star. Very disappointing

A note from the team: Thanks for taking the time to write your review. I'm sorry to hear about the problem you've had. The set is suitable for the dishwasher but it's best to remove & dry carefully as soon as the cycle has finished. I'll be in touch shortly.
Good Quality - Not sure they will stand the course of time”
I ordered a set as I thought we needed a bit more cutlery especially for when we have guests. The set itself is lovely, good quality and feels very well made. The only downside is the dishwasher! - We have noticed that there is small light rust spots appearing on the handles after they have been through the dishwasher. - With that in mind we do wonder whether or not they will stand up to repeated washing, or that they will become a throwaway job in a years time. - Let us hope not!

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review.Although the set is dishwasher safe, you need to dry off the cutlery as soon as the dishwasher cycle has finished, so that water stains do not get chance to appear (these look like small rusts spots). This does happen to most steel items if left in the dishwasher.
As good as the most expensive sets except dishwasher proof!!”
I recently purchased two sets as they are a good weight and balanced nicely with a look as good if not better than the far more expensive, The only problem I have with them is that if using the dishwasher I have been getting rusty coloured water marks which can be rubbed away with a cloth. Will have to keep an eye to see if they get worse, my wife says wash and dry by hand and you don't get this problem, too time consuming! Thank you for a quick response from Lakeland.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry about the water marks. Please remember that although the set is dishwasher safe, the items need to be wiped dry as soon as the dishwasher cycle has finished, as leaving then in the appliance will attract the water marks now being found.
Lovely set of cutlery. Only drawback is the knives could do with a bit more cutting power. Getting through a tomato sometimes a struggle. Otherwise a very nice stylish set

I bought this for my husband as he'd been wanting new cutlery for ages. We're both really pleased with the set. The weight is perfect, not too heavy for me but heavier enough for him. It looks really stylish and the price is good. Would recommend!

Excellent Cutlery Set”
I recently purchased this set and I have to say the picture doesn't do it justice. It's very elegant and heavier than I expected. I bought it for everyday use but this could also be used for special occasions. Highly recommended.

Alexandra 26piece cutlery”
A lovely set, very elegant, feels nice in the hand. good weight to them. I like the fact you can buy extras that go with the range- like butter knife and pastry forks. I think they're very good value too.
