Cambridge Set Hits Top Spot on Cooking.com!

We are very proud to announce that our 45-pc. Ammonite Mirror Service for 8 Flatware Set is currently the Number One Spotlighted flatware on this dynamic site.  The set was given 4.5 stars out of a possible 5 and a total of 31 reviews, most of which are raves.  Here are a few of them:

I am very pleased with this flatwear.  They feel heavy and well balanced and  great quality. I have already recommended them to friends and family.

I shopped and shopped, online and in department stores, for a flatware pattern  that I liked.  I’m VERY picky.  As soon as I saw it on cooking.com (and I never  saw it in a department store) I knew my searching was over!  With all the other  great reviews on this product I knew that the quality would be great.  They came  with a 25 year warranty!! They are the right size, right weight, and unique  looking. Soon I will order a second set.  I couldn’t be more pleased and hope  that this will be the last flatware I ever buy.

I think this is a wonderful set.  I chose it because of it’s unique design.   When I received it, I wasn’t aware the great quality of the metal.  That made me  love the set even more.  It’s is a little pricey, but, I wanted the item and you  get what you pay for.  No complaints about the product at all.

And there are lots more!  We wish to express our gratitude for these kind words from these great customers.

If you never bought flatware before….

It’s amazing how little people know about buying flatware.  Obviously, the major part of making the final purchase decision is style.  In fact, it would be hard to   quantify in percentage numbers just how high that number would be in terms of importance.  It’s a safe bet, however that it would be over 50%.  But there are other reasons to buy a particular set of flatware.  There’s the finish, the actual composition, the feel and more.  One of the better places on the Web to learn more about flatware is About.com.  This has a brief and very informative page that can tell you all you really need to know to make a smart purchase.  You can visit it at http://housewares.about.com/od/kitchenwareaccessories/f/ststeel_RO.htm.  Happy shopping!

Cambridge Ratings Soar

On a recent visit to cooking.com, it was obvious that Cambridge Silversmiths’ flatware is being reviewed more favorably each day.  On their first page, you will see that six patterns are featured (one with four color variations).  Of the six, five were rated 4 stars or better! The two that were rated highest were Jubilee and Codie Mirror each getting four-and-a-half stars.  Keep checking our home page for new products and sales.  You’ll be glad you did.

Customers Say The Nicest Things!

One of the true pleasures of making a high quality line of products is the pleasant feedback from our customers, especially those who take the time to rate and write about us online.  Here are three of the latest comments from Cambridge customers who purchased our Evanston Mirror pattern and posted their thoughts on one of the Internet’s highest rated sites, www.cooking.com.

CUSTOMER I

“I bought this as a gift for a friend, and we were both extremely pleased with it.  We both loved the simple design and having the tray that came with it is an extra bonus. It fit into her kitchen drawer perfectly, with room to spare. It was packaged VERY well — in fact, we had trouble getting the pieces out, it was so tightly banded together!  She is happy to have new flatware, and I was happy that I could give her such a nice gift at a reasonable cost.  It made an awesome presentation.  Thanks.”

CUSTOMER II

“A good product, delivered in good time and well worth the price.”

CUSTOMER III

“I purchased this product for a gift.  The person who received it is very happy with my choice.”

By the way, all three clicked on “Would purchase again”.

Thank you soooo much for the replacement.  I always said that good customer service is the reason for us to stick to a product.  After the way you dealt with my problem, I’m going to buy more and more of your products.  I actually did start,  and I already bought a new set of steak knives.  Once again,  thank you  and I’m gonna’ put an excellent review on my purchase!
