I bought this set having used KitchenAid tools and gadgets in the past. I thought I would be getting a quality, durable product but I was wrong. This set was very cheaply made. I have owned it for less than a year and the handles have broken on multiple tools. The ink used for the KitchenAid brand has all but disappeared on every gadget, and I would often get a "plastic" taste in my food when using the spoons. This must be a cheap production set from KitchenAid because normally their products are of good quality.
