Oneida Basketweave Pattern

I knew Oneida made great flatware but until recently I didn’t even realize that they also offer dinnerware. The set of dishes we had had been a wedding gift, making them 25 years old. The set was missing a few pieces. It was worn and scratched, and a couple of pieces had small chips. When I started browsing online for new dishes, I wasn’t prepared to find such a wide variety and some pretty reasonable prices.

I selected the Oneida Basketweave 53 Piece Service For 8. I love the color and texture of this pattern. The Basketweave pattern (shown above) is a creamy off white and has a basket pattern around the edge. It’s simple and understated and would work well with just about any decor. This is a 53 piece set, a setting for eight – exactly what I needed to replace my old set.

The set includes:

  • 8 Dinner Plates
  • 8 Salad Plates
  • 8 Soup Bowls
  • 8 Cups
  • 8 Saucers
  • 8 Fruit Bowls
  • 1 Vegetable Bowl
  • 1 Platter
  • 1 Sugar Bowl w/Lid
  • 1 Creamer

The dishes are simple and pretty. They’re very sturdy, and are made of stoneware. I love that they are both dishwasher and microwave safe, two musts in our house. This set regularly sells for $129.99 but is currently on sale for an astounding $49.99! I found a lot of other great deals on the site as well. Browsing there was almost as dangerous for me as being locked into a cheesecake store! With the wide range of styles offered you’re sure to find something you like, as well as some great gift ideas.
