Re: Where to buy kitchenware/ cutlery/glasses

Migros used to have cutlery made in Germany. Now the only thing I can find is stuff made in China. Bit of a let down. Without sounding snobbish, I feel the German stuff has a better feel to it. I'm not sure if others agree.

We picked up the cutlery from Migros about 15 yrs ago, and can't seem to find anything close to it in quality. I of course exclude the brands at Globus or Jelmoli. Any thoughts on where one might find German made cutlery. Incidentally, I've also looked at the standard shops across the border in Germany and even they seem to mostly have Chinese made.

WMF used to have German made stuff, but now apparently, all their stuff is Chinese.

Thoughts?

if you like Villeroy & Boch, they have an outlet store in Lenzburg.
it's not so popular and tough to find by internet, then it's better to visit their facebook account. And you can check their promoting items, place and opening hours.
for your information

Re: Where to buy kitchenware/ cutlery/glasses

I am currently moving in and I would like to buy some new cutlery like pans and pots. Shall I go to Globus or try something cheaper?
