Back in November, in the midst of Black Friday madness, we alerted readers about an amazing deal we spotted on Instagram: a 26-piece flatware set on sale for $26 at West Elm. The Essential Set included 8 knives, 8 spoons, 8 forks, 1 serving spoon, and 1 serving fork, and, not surprisingly, it sold out within days.

But here’s the good news: Even though the 26-piece set is no longer available, you can still score the flatware for a steal. As part of West Elm’s One-Day Premiere Event, you can snag a set of 4 knives, 4 spoons, or 4 forks for just $5 each — a savings of 64 percent off the full price of $14. In other words, you can get an entire 12-piece set of cutlery for pretty much what you’d normally pay for just 4 pieces.

So what’s so great about the Essential line? Each piece is made of stainless steel and has a slender design that feels more modern than your classic cutlery. It’s an unfussy, simple set that’s worth the investment even when not on sale.

The best part is that this is actually a flatware set you’ll use every day, unlike other “trendy” sets that you want to reserve for special occasions. It’s the kind of flatware that’s beautiful and well-made, but maybe not special enough to drop a ton of money on, especially considering the lower prices for everyday cutlery at other retailers. It is, however, absolutely worth jumping on now.
