      Cutlery is something that every home needs, but it can be surprisingly expensive and replacing it can blow a fairly large hole in your budget. This is even more the case if you want to have a spare set as well as the utensils you use on most occasions, so I was attracted by the sight of this 24 piece set from Argos for a fiver, which really is outstandingly cheap

      for what you get - six each of knives, forks, dessert spoons and teaspoons, all made out of stainless steel.

      However, it isn’t all plain sailing, and I would not really recommend these things for use at any time when presentation is important, such as asking people around for dinner. The basic design is okay, though I wouldn’t call it very striking, and it’s good (if expected) that you can clean this ...


      • cutlery in a dishwasher. You can tell that they are cheap, though, as the metal is obviously not that thick, and a worse problem is that the handles are not rounded and so they can dig into your hands - I find that the knife is the worst for this problem.

        I would consider this set to be absolutely ideal for use in, say, a student kitchen where cost consciousness is very

        important but beautiful elegance is not. It would also work well as a set to take out on picnics, or to give to charities or schools if they were short of cutlery. However, you really do get what you pay for here, and I cannot in all honesty say that this set is anything other than a rock-bottom selection. Recommended ONLY if you understand all these limitations and don’t expect dinner-party chic.
