I want to purchase the flatware used by Rachael Ray. It looks as if the tasting panel on ICA uses the very same pattern. I cannot find this pattern. If anyone KNOWS the name of the pattern, please advise. Thanks.
P.S. I have written to Rachael Ray and the Food Network via e-mail with no result. I do not want to go to flatware.com and look through endless pages of patterns.

      I am bumping this up to update my info. Tthe Martha Stewart-produced show called "Everyday Cooking" uses the flatware in question. I also saw a "30-Minute Meals" from 2009 in which Rachael used a stainless steel base with a plastic decoration in the handle. This is not the one I am interested in.

        I too have been looking for this flatware, and I finally found it. It is called Bodum Barcelona flatware set. I have checked every place and it is out of stock. The places that do have it, the prices are ungodly. One of the main places was Target. I would check in store, it is out on-line.

          I was curious to see what it looked like and went to Google - take a look - ikitchen.com is offering a 20 piece set of Bodum Barcelona for $50.

          If you can find the barcelona flatware buy it!! I contacted Bodum and it was discontinued 2 years ago and is NOT coming back. I havent been able to find it, so if someone finds something similar to this please let me know.

            There's a similar set called mango by someone.. an Italian company. Quite expensive though. I'll check.

            Hang on, maybe it's not exactly similar. http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=mango%20flatware&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi

            There's an English called Habitat that has something that's similar iirc. If you need help finding some unusual flatware, I've spent many hours researching, so I'll help however I can

            More:

            And this one: http://www.habitat.co.uk/fcp/product/browse/16-piece-cutlery-set:-4-x-table-knives,-table-forks,-table-spoons,-teaspoons/996963
            The spoons are similar, but the knife is a little different. It comes in brushed silver too.

            btw, those barcelona ones look uncomfortable to hold; I prefer a solid, heavy rounded end. Feels nice, and that way I don't have to worry about it bending when I dig into some icecream or something ;

            FYI, these are the ones I went for http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I...
            Reduced from £100 to £40, and I'm overjoyed whenever I use them.

              Nonstop by Gourmet Settings (GS) is very similar. It comes in polished or matte stainless steel.

                Sorry to revive an old post, but what is the flatware in the image you posted Soop? Can't get back to the Amazon link from the picture.

                The style of the Bodum Barcelona set is reminiscent of some flatware I have... the IKEA 365+ line. It's not identical (take a look at http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/pro... ) but it does share design cues, almost to the point that I'm thinking the Barcelona was IKEA's inspiration for the 365+ flatware. And, it's only $25 for a 20-piece set.

                  FYI, I'd been searching for these for at least a year... I knew they were the Bodum Barcelona for a long time, but they've been pretty hard to get since they were discontinued a few years ago.

                  I order directly from Bodum for the shops I run in NYC and even they couldn't help me despite the fact that the sets were available at international Bodum sites... cut to last Friday, I was doing my OCD weekly google search for them and they're (the 24-piece set) magically available again on the US Bodum site, yet they're precariously shelved under the BBQ section of their online shop?

                  In any case, I just opened them and washed them and handled them and all I can say is that I'm glad I finally have them and didn't have to spend $70 in shipping and currency conversion for the same set. Anyway, you can find them here http://www.bodum.com/us/en-us/shop/de... for now at least!

                  In any case, I ordered them (free shipping!)

                    I realise this is really late but for some reason this thread is current again - did a google and found them here http://www.bodum.com/gb/en-us/shop/de... !
