This is a very nice bamboo set of utensils. Each piece came individually wrapped, and all were scratch/scuff free. This is a great addition to my kitchen. One thing to note is that the manual states that the bamboo must be oiled lightly over time with mineral oil to keep the bamboo from drying out. I am very pleased with this purchase.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
How is the quality of the product? Very high
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Description was spot on
I returned this set, and I'm somewhat surprised that Overstock would sell something this shoddy. The bamboo utensils were poorly made and appeared to have some type of varnish or shellac finish. I didn't think they'd be safe for cooking so I sent them back.
As a wood worker I cannot give this a "Good" quality rating because one of the spoons was chipped on the end of the bowl. That should have been caught by a quality inspector and tossed out. The bamboo is good in and of itself, and the designs are excellent. My wife and I love using bamboo in the kitchen, and I use bamboo where I can in the garden and my wood shop.
I was looking for something exactly like this....I love the fact that it spins around to make it easy to grab what you need when you need it with ease!!! I have had this now for a couple months and I love the look and all the utensils in the set!!! I would totally recommend this...one tip to maintaining the bamboo is to NEVER soak it in water and make sure you put olive oil on it occasionally to keep the wood moist...I use Olive oil because I find it easy and safe to use.
It's a ton of pieces for a very low price. The holder has a nice rotating base. If I had a gripe - it would be that every single piece had a little sticker that had to be removed - and they were really stuck on there. All the pieces are very durable.
Don't know but happy if this is made in the USA.tomchris51 on Jan 22, 2013
