I am looking for every day use, and for 8 people.
what material? silver, stainless seel?
Yes you are right, I could not ask this , because it was part of my request, since I do not know which material is better, therefore i could not deciede which one has more durability and last longer

Zillah, Go for stainless as it is easy to clean, durable and does the everyday tasks well.
Silver is very nice to use, but a bugga to clean and is a soft metal so will damage pretty easily with everyday use.
Have a look at the Maxwell williams range - not sure of the prices but you might find one in that price range.
Have a look at them at myers, DJ's and other stores such as kitchecn supply companies.

Look for a stainless that fits your $150 budget and that you like…..the name and brand doesn’t really matter.
As long as you like it.

i use maxwell and williams cutlery
its realy durable and best of all, it looks fantastic.!
we brought the cutlery individually, on sale, because we didnt need all the extra forks etc like in the sets. one fork i think is 5.95, teaspoon 2.50 etc.
a 8 person set will cost maybe $200 - $350.. not so sure.
have a browse here: (they also sell homewares -plates etc)
etc.. all the homeware shops! its well worth the $$!!

I have MW's in the Madison range.
And when your after plates.
Don't get the MW's
The nice lady at the shop told me as Í had the box of MW plates on the trolley, she said - do you really want those - here I'll give you a hand, have a look at this.
So she put the MW and the VUE brand of plain white plates beside each other and the Vue was so much whiter.
And then she pointed out that VUE was cheaper and better quality - and they also sell them as a single plate - so I can replace them as desired in the futre.
What a nice lady - I'll be back.
Good luck and remember to hold the knive and fork and act as though you are eating to be sure you like the look and feel of them.

By-pass the usual trade outlets!....
Look up wholesale suppliers to the hospitality industry in your yellow pages. They carry and supply large ranges of varying quality cutlery and stuff, at very attractive prices!
Here in Perth, we wanted a good set of everyday dinnerware early last year. We went to Gibsons & Paterson. They showed us an impressive range, in their massive showroom. We could buy as many or few as we wanted, so it's a very happy buying experience, rather than having to buy sets that may not be exactly what you want.

Another place to try is your hospitality shops such as cedar or hotel agencies in Melbourne. They supply to the public, try haggling on the price, and they have good prices and quite a range.
Fi has moved in!!

There are also brands such as TableKraft and Grosvenor. We have a good set of Grosvenor cutlery of for everyday use and another REALLY good set which stays in its box and gather's dust!!!
It only comes out for very special occasions.
Make sure you know what quality of stainless you are buying:
Stainless steel is a composite of different steels and varies in terms of grades for different uses. The main ingredient is chromium and nickel has been added to provide a resistance to corrosion.
Therefore 18/10 means 18% chromium and 10% nickel. The higher the nickel content, the more protection from corrosion. Prices vary considerably depending on these specs. And 18/8 means 18% chromium and 8% nickel. The higher the nickel % the better - supposedly.... although they are both classed at 304 grade stainless.
You need to make sure you know what you are paying for...
Do your shopping around, go to Myers and stores with dedicated departments and staff... Let them show you the difference. A nice piece of cutlery will be weighted correctly and not feel too heavy or lop-sided in your hand...... they also do not need to cost the earth for a decent set....although if you want heirloom quality it will cost you....
