The metal isn't of the highest gauge, but is fine, for the price. This is a good set for someone who doesn't cook daily, or when there are roommates who might not take the best care of someone else's belongings. You can get the job done, with this set. Not a long term set, but just fine for price.
I spent many years in the hospitality industry, including cooking professionally, and I can't stand flimsy home utensils! When I used to be able to get around under my own steam, I shopped restaurant supply stores wherever I lived. Can't do that anymore, so online I went, and ended up with this one on Overstock. It's exactly what I needed -- sturdy and extremely functional on the grill or to use with my single favorite piece of cookware: the iron skillet! Nothing makes cooking easier and more enjoyable than having the right tools at your fingertips.
