These are well made and durable. I am pretty hard on cooking utensils as I give them a heck of a workout when I am preparing gourmet meals for 20. These work very well and I am very pleased with them. The only drawback/word of advice I would give is DO NOT LEAVE THEM to soak in a sinkfull of water. The handles will hold water inside them and it is a hassle to try and get the water out. I never put good utensils or pots and pans through the dishwasher so I cannot comment on how well they hold up to repeated dishwasher care. Overall, these are a fantastic buy and I have already ordered a second set.
