Designer Robert Welch

United Kingdom

Robert Welch’s career got off to a humble start in the beautiful English Cotswolds, in a tiny dorm-style room with a bed and a drawing board in an old silk mill in the market town of Chipping Campden. The British designer was greatly influenced by the functionality and clean lines of Scandinavian modernism during his years at the Royal College of Arts in the mid 1950s, and Welch went on to become an iconic name for thoughtfully designed, affordable stainless steel flatware. His designs have been collected by major museums around the world.

After Robert Welch’s death in 2000, two of his children, Rupert and Alice, took the reins of the company, which now occupies the entire top floor of that same 200-year-old stone building. Today, even as Robert Welch designers work in a setting steeped in history, they use new technology such as 3D printers to carefully hone their product designs. With a miniscule adjustment to a curve here or a handle thickness there, they create elegant utensils with just the right weight and balance to feel perfectly natural in the hand. “Design was a part of every day when Rupert and I were little,” says Alice Welch. “Dad used to bring home prototypes for us to test and review; you never knew what was going to appear next.”

Foster Satin 5-Piece Flatware Place Setting is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful - but quality issues We purchased this set about 6 months and were so excited! The flatware is beautiful ... classy, timeless, and exactly as displayed on the website. We use it for every day as well as special occasions and have gotten many compliments on the set! With that said ... I am extremely disappointed with the quality. There are already rust spots on the flatware (see photos attached). I was careful to follow the care instructions (i.e. no citrus detergent, don't leave sitting in water, etc), however in less than six months, rust spots have appeared. We have other Crate & Barrel products that we love and have had no issues with. I'm hoping this is a one-off issue with their quality, but at least wanted to make others aware of the issues I have experienced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Close match to Foster from 16 years ago I bought 4 additional place settings to add to place settings purchased 16 years ago. The new pieces are made in Korea and are a close, but not exact match, of the original pieces. At least they match well enough that I don't have to get a whole new set.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointment We bought this flatware three months ago. Followed cleaning instructions. Dishwasher safe, avoid citrus cleaners. Within three months of regular use our flatware is rusting (see picture). Our older stainless steel silverware has never rusted. Will never purchase another product from Crate & Barrel given the poor quality. Extremely disappointed, especially since we bought 12 sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and Hearty! This flatware is great for everyday use and on those occasions when we need something a little more fancy. They are the farthest thing from flimsy and hold up great in the dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this flatware! I purchased the satin finish and love it. I was so pleased when I picked a piece up and it had a little weight to it. It's not heavy; actually just right. The pattern is simple with clean lines so it will match up with just about any dishes. The price is exceptional for such quality flatware. The ends tip up slightly except for the knife and adds just the right touch. This flatware should be an essential for C&B. My gratitude to the designer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless I purchased this set 16 years ago, and I am still very pleased with the look and quality. I checked back a few years ago and ordered additional servings spoons; I was glad to see that there handles were made longer. Now that my kids are getting older, I wish I could purchase more dinner spoons.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too heavy. These are just too heavy and poorly balanced. The knives fall off the plate and all of the pieces take up too much space in the dishwasher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great feel/weight! We're really happy with these!They have a nice comfortable feel and weight. The three features we were specifically looking for were a round spoon, shorter tines on the small fork and serrated knife...winner!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing I bought these about a month ago and I am even happier than I expected. They have the perfect weight (I love that they feel kind of heavy because you know that you are actually holdin a high quality piece). They are also very smooth to the touch. The knives are awesome, they cut through any type of food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought these to add to a set started seven years ago. Timeless beauty. So glad you kept this pattern available.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed after a few years Purchased this flatware set about 6 years ago. It held up well for about the first 4 years, with the biggest flaw being persistent water spots after being washed in the diswasher. But then pieces started to taste "tinny" and I have had to discard enough of them that I'm very short on forks. For 18/10 construction the set has not lasted too long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just bought these and they are the best knives and forks (and spoons) I've ever owned. They have weight and are classy looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern yet classic My husband and I registered for these and initially picked them for the price. But we have come to learn that we did not sacrifice on quality. The shape is a bit modern but the satin provides a classic element to it as well.
