Flatware... my knives are pitting.
Without doing any researching I bought a set of Wallace 18/10 stainless steel flatware, new in the box, off ebay. I liked the pattern and the fact that it was a large, new set. I thought Wallace was a good brand.
Shortly after we started using them I noticed some pitting on my knives. I wasn't real happy so I emailed the seller and Wallace complaining. They informed me most all flatware is made in China and the pitting problem can be helped by putting the knives in a section by themselves in the dishwasher. They're made of different alloys or something like that. Most of my knives have some pitting and it looks horrible. I can't imagine it's real good to be using them like that. Returning wasn't an option. I ordered the set before we even started building the house so it sat for months never opened and boxed up. We've been using the flatware for about a year and a half now.
Is this common with all flatware? I've considered buying a differnt brand but don't want to have this problem again. It's not like we use the knives often (just DH and myself) but when company's over...
