Trudy,
     That is a page from the Oneida website I mentioned about.  Here is the link to their Sale page.  Good deals at up to 80% off.

     http://www.oneida.com/sale/

     I don't know if you sent that e-mail, but because I was curious myself, I did send one and will post their reply when I receive it.  They have a notice posted that their offices will be closed until January 5 because of the holiday, but I should receive a reply after that.

Trudy, I don't see anywhere that any of it was made in the USA. I would personally not waste my time wondering. Ask them when their offices are open. Enjoy the weekend doing other things  Wink

If you want to continue to search for Oneida flatware made in the USA, I would look for older stuff on ebay or an auction site. I doubt they have any USA made new stuff available anymore. Most manufacturers that I've seen that produce in the USA admit it. With cookware and kitchenware, many of the name brands known for USA production, state which of their items have off shore production. Many times they keep the USA original lines as is and produce a lower cost line in China (EU companies are doing this also). Plainly stated on their websites. If I can't find info easily on a company website, I pretty much look elsewhere. I will sometimes check retail sites like cooking.com that I know lists origin whenever possible. There's enough choices out there that I don't put too much time into it anymore  Smiley I mean really now, they expect us to read all this sappy crap about their history and how great they are, yet they can't bother to say where they produce all their stuff?

Trudy, I don't think Ace Hardware sells flatware. I did get a made in USA cheese grater there though!  I'm going there tomorrow and I'll see what they have. I seem to remember it's mostly kitchen items like baking and canning supplies - that sort of thing.

I have Oneida silverware that I bought at least 20 yrs ago, maybe longer.  I never had a full set of the same design, just different pieces that I acquired here & there.  I liked this because it was a beautiful design & nice & heavy. 

My guess would be that the silverware today would probably have lead in it if it's MIC & is probably flimsy.......like the forks & spoons would bend easily.  I'm just guessing because I bought mine so long ago.

I think you'd be better off going to yard sales or looking on ebay or Amazon for an older set.  Of course, we don't really know even 20 yrs ago what kind of metal they were using so that may not even matter.  I personally think all this crapola has been going on for a very long time, we just never knew it.

I received this reply to my e-mail to Oneida:

        "Currently, our flatware is sourced from Korea, China, Vietnam and
Indonesia.

Thank you."

Offy thanks so much for the information. Will find out for sure that it is indeed made in the USA. If so will buy it. Price is right too.

Offy sent an email asking if the mixer is all american made and assembled to black and decker today.

Thanks Peg. Nice site but no hand mixers at all on there, lol. Have things that I've seen a lot cheaper than other place though.
