Name of flatware used on 30-Minute Meals and Iron Chef America?
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.
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...
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
And this one: http://www.habitat.co.uk/fcp/product/...
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.
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!)
