I have had this nice set for awhile now. I was surprised to see it was labelled Durant. My knife block is marked Sunbeam. It seems they are the same thing. I think they are very good, especially for the price. The knives are sharp and hold up very well. I always put them in the dishwasher, and there are no problems. I was concerned about the poultry scissors, but they work well. I haven't had a problem at all. I feel it is an attractive set, that is compact on my counter. I had lost all my good knives in my move. My rating reflects that they are not a really high end set, but that should be reflected by the amount charged. I particularly like the handles. The colors are very nice and I feel they are comfortable. I don't know how you can do better for the money. I would buy the set at this excellent price.

When I arrived in the U.S. om 1971, on marrying I chose mainly Sunbeam products, and have some left all these years later. Wanted to replaced my cutlery set with less knives, (too cumbersome on my kitchen counter) and this fit the bill just right. The quality of the knives couldn't be better, and now I have a useful pair of scissors for my cooking needs. also.
This set is nice, neat, and compactly fits on my counter. I've only used a few times so far but the handles are very comfortable to grip and the knives seem to cut well. I've actually used the scissors a lot already and they're very functional.
I bought this set for my office where the knives and scissors will be abused by many. By not buying a fancy-dancy set, I don't have to worry about anyone stealing them. Everything works fine and the set cost less than $20. Seems good to me.
