High quality with minor issues
on May 24, 2016
My initial impression without having grilled with them is: They are of high quality and have a commercial feel to them. My only complaints are: The spatula's shaft is a little sharp on the edges below the handle. I will sand them smooth so I don't cut myself if grabbing them by the shaft instead of the handle. Also, the metal ring that is used to hang the utensils is bendable and I can see the metal ring coming apart at the handle eventually. It would be nice if the metal ring was a full oval welded together so that it never comes apart. The tongs don't spring open fully every time. The spring needs to be stronger. Also, the locking mechanism on the tongs should be spring loaded to avoid unintentional locking. Other than those minor issues, the set seems durable and of high quality.
So after my first use of actually grilling with this set I have increased my rating. The spatula and fork are top notch. The tongs could use a design change. I first thought the spring was not strong enough. Now I think the spring is ok, but the locking mechanism gradually engages on the tongs when opening and closing. When this happens the tongs don't open fully. They could fix this by putting a spring or some other method to keep the lock from engaging unintentionally.
