This professional kitchen tool set has the perfect assortment for those just setting up a kitchen, or for those people who have had a kitchen for quite a while and need new replacements, like me. So it would make a great present for many people on your gift list. It's a great set for daily usage and like all Farberware products, they are attractive and very durable.
I have nonstick pans, so I like that the slotted turner, short turner, basting spoon and silicone spatula (with wooden handle) are all safe for my pans. The handles are weighted and well balanced. All of those but the silicone spatula are nylon that is safe in temperatures up to 400° F. The silicone head of the spatula is safe up to 500° F. Of course the wood spoon and wood slotted spoon are also good for nonstick pans.
The ceramic crock is just the right size, is nice and ‘hefty' and looks good on my counter. I wish it was machine washable, but hey, I'll live! I also like the can opener because it has a nice heft to it (doesn't feel cheap), opens wide for large cans and it ‘bites' right away and continues holding the can all the way around. The potato peeler fits nice in my hand and I don't have to struggle holding it as I peel like I do when I use a metal peeler. Plus it swivels so I can use it up and down on the potato. The tongs are on the smallish size, but I sometimes have a need for a smaller tong. So I'm sure it will come in handy. I could go on and on about all the different tools, but I'm really pleased with this set. So much so that I plan on buying one or two for Christmas presents.
