I had just begun purchasing several kitchen tools separately at local stores when I came across this set. I've since taken everything else back! This set has it all, and then some! The bamboo utensils are very durable and easy to clean and this set comes with things that I never even would have thought of needing and have since used. I recently purchased a new set of pots and pans and these utensils go well with teflon. Highly recommend!
