ISO cheap flatware set for food prep

I want to replace some unattractive flatware pieces that I use for food prep—mostly teaspoons, soup spoons, and forks. I just bought this set at Bed Bath but when I took the utensils out of the box and held them, the pointy edges on the handles were really uncomfortable. I think rounded edges on the handles would be better.

Does anyone know of a cheap stainless steel set that would fill the bill?

Got a great set at JC Penney's many years ago, and they continue to serve me well.

Yes I had forgotten about Target! Also I just saw another set on Bed Bath's website that looks a bit better.

I'm not sure what cheap is, take a look at the Oneida site.

Flatware | Oneida Flatware Sets, Serving Sets, & Placesettings

Do your homework before you order they have several grades of flatware to choose from.

Good luck!

I have two Granny forks that I use for so many things in the kitchen. Testing doneness of veggies for one.

Search Result

I also have these soup spoons. They are great for tasting liquids.
Amazon.com: AmoVee Wholesale Stainless Steel Alpha Round Soup Spoons, Set of 8: Kitchen & Dining

And I find they are easier to eat soup with instead of the elongated large soup spoons that come with most sets. I have several mismatched serrated steak knives and table knives. Very useful when cutting open English and other muffins. Clean straight cut. I am more interested in function more than matching sets. Ice teaspoons come in handy for fishing out an individual item from a deep pot or other container.

If there is a thrift shop or Salvation Army store as Andy suggested, you just might be better off looking there. And helping a good cause also.

Addie, I think those are the same spoons I ordered, they're wonderful for all sorts of things, and I agree, Iced Tea Spoons are fabulous for so many functions... the last of something in a jar, in a parfait glass full of Ice Cream or Jello, the list goes on!

Addie, I couldn't agree more!! I don't like the elongated soup spoons, which is why I'm having a hard time finding a set I like. Maybe I'll get the ones you posted and buy some individually-sold forks and knives at BBB.
