Our club uses ladles as prizes for our annual Chili Cook-Off. We are always looking for ladles that have a high polished mirror finish with sufficient space on the handle for engraving. Also, we look for ladles that are neither too large or too small. These ladles are the best we've found! They look great and the available space on the handle is perfect for our engraving needs. The ladles were shipped individually wrapped and protected from scratching. After engraving, they look great! We will definitely purchase these again for our event next year. I am sure glad I found your website.
