I love the quality of these spoons, I am happy that I bought them.
I bought two of these, one was perfect, the other had some slight bending in the rim but would still be usable for most purposes. the two shipped together in one large box for the same shipping as one, which was great. however, while the box could have held several more, adding even one $2 lid doubled the shipping. FSW would sell more lids if they would just include them in the box with the bain marie, instead of shipping them separately
I have a Char-BroilÂ® Patio BistroÂ® TRU-Infraredâ„¢ Gas Grill with a stainless steel, grooved grate with tiny holes in the channels. I use another brush for cleaning the raised areas of the grate before using my Update International-14" Wood Handled Wire Brush for detailing the grate grooves. The bristles are very sturdy and long enough to do a thorough job. I find it useful to use water while cleaning the grate(should be heated first), initially, with my other, broader brush. Then, I burn the remaining wet debris to an ash before detailing. If this particular brush were 2/3 times as wide, it would be the only brush I would need and would be perfect. Otherwise, a great brush and tool.
The serving pieces were bought for my church. I like how they feel, nice weight.
