Oneida Dinnerware Review

Hi Neighbors!

Sort of a dreary day here today. Rain now and possibly mixing with snow later. Anyway let me share some information on Oneida. I received a Pearl 53 piece service for 8. (Normally $129.99 now $59.99) It is snow white and has little raised dots around the edges of the dinnerware. Made of stoneware and both dishwasher and microwave safe this was a great choice for my family. It included 8 dinner plates, 8 salad plates, 8 soup bowls, 8 cups, 8 saucers, 8 fruit bowls, 1 vegetable bowl, 1 serving platter, 1 sugar bowl with lid and a creamer. I love it! We have used it several times. It is pretty and yet can be used daily. My daughter really likes to set the table with these. I highly recommend this set to anyone looking for a nice dinnerware set.

As you can see from the pictures they are nice!

Oneida History:

"The Oneida Story

The Oneida Community:
The Nineteenth-Century Utopian Society of John Humphrey Noyes

To state it briefly, the old Oneida Community was a religious and social society founded in Oneida, New York, in 1848 by John Humphrey Noyes and his followers. In the beginning, most of them were Vermonters, almost all were New Englanders.

The Community was founded on Noyes' theology of Perfectionism, a form of Christianity with two basic values; self-perfection and communalism. These ideals were translated into everyday life through shared property and work. Noyes' solution was a society where the interest of one member became the interest of all - the enlargement of the family. They called themselves Perfectionists and, being logical and literal, they proceeded to substitute for the small unit of home and family and individual possessions, the larger unit of group-family and group-family life.

The Oneida Community canned fruits and vegetables; they made traps and chains; they made traveling bags and straw hats and mop sticks and sewing silk and, last of all, they found out how to make silver knives and forks and spoons.

This is the beginning of what has grown to become Oneida Silversmiths and the Oneida Ltd. of today.

Oneida Ltd. Today
Throughout the economic, social and political changes that Oneida has seen during its history, the company’s reputation for excellence and brand recognition has remained unshakable. An independent national consumer study has found that 90 percent of consumers name Oneida as the first company they think of when asked about stainless steel flatware—an invaluable measure of the Oneida brand’s strength.

Just as importantly, Oneida’s workforce has maintained its dedication even through the most trying of times — adapting some original community ideals to fit the modern-day goal of being a complete tabletop supplier. “The dignity of work” has been a constant theme; every job is recognized as an important contributor to the company’s success. Brand recognition, product quality and dedicated employees are enduring strengths that form the backbone of the company as it moves forward."

This short bit of history above was taken from the Oneida Website. There is much more about the company that can be read there.

Oneida is a well-known company that has been around for years. They still produce quality dinnerware, silverware, and kitchenware. If you are looking for a nice gift, make sure you check the Oneida site. By the way, this would make a nice set to use for the holidays!

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this review. I did receive a dinnerware set for review purposes. All quotes are taken from the Oneida email or website. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Hi Lori

I read with interest your postings on the Oneida Community and Oneida Ltd. Very nice introduction to the rich history of the Community and the silverware company that was created when the religious community broke up in 1881.

My wife and I are living in an apartment in the Oneida Community Mansion House, right above what was once the Community dining room and is now a restaurant.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
