The set wasn't that expensive compared to other high end fireplace accessories. We have fires in our fireplace quite often and within 2 months the tongs broke apart. The handles are also screwed on by hand and come loose all the time. The broom is the best part for cleaning up the ashes but the handle comes loose on it as well. Decent to get by but not long lasting.
I love this tool set the tools are not as big as I expected and that is good as my fireplce is small. Looks as pictured. Cons: two of the yokes that hold the tools were broken. You have to call the manufacturer directly for replacement. I was told it would be two weeks before I receive it. That is worth it not to have to return the whole set as it is very heavy for just that little piece.
