The fork itself was sturdy, flexible, tips were sharp and protected with plastic caps for shipping, and the silicone feels very nice. However, the coating seems to be a little thin compared to other items in the same product line and there are several areas where the stainless steel underneath shows through or where there are nicks/scratches in the silicone. These are not apparent in the three other products I own from the same line (tongs, spatula, and silicone basting brush), so I am not sure if my one item is faulty or if it is a mistake in the engineering of the fork overall. If the silicone coating issue were resolved, I would consider this a five-star item, especially for the price I paid.
Great product, sturdy, well built, not flimsy like other forks. Great for a bbq or tailgating.Great item for the price. would recommend to friend.
