Comment:
Got the set 8 years ago.<br />The scissors broke soon after.<br />The baster didn't make it through the first turkey.<br />The knives made it 5 years until we got a dishwasher.<br />After that, they started to rust out, so we try not to put them in. They are sharped than the old Chicago Cutlery ones we were using, and I don't mind them.

Comment:
Can't beat the price. Quite durable if you don't put them in the dishwasher. Need sharpening after a year or so, which is not a big problem. Right after we bought these, Ronco had a BOGO sale--Oh, well.
