Good, but not particularly heavy weight. Ordered everything available in the series (misc. spoons, spatulas, ladle, fork, etc.). Pros: Attractive, and would look great on a pot-luck table. Good design. Stamped out of a single piece of metal so no possibility of welds coming apart, etc. Cons: Not particularly substantial--basically the same weight metal as good quality flat-ware. Certainly usable on the stove, but I won't be using these to lift anything heavy or stir anything that's extremely thick--these will bend.
Second time purchasing this item. My wife bought one prior and I was surprised by how good it seemed. Large scoop and sturdy, with good heft to it. Only thing is to be careful while using with pots as it could scratch the bottom.
Good value for the price. This ladle is perfectly sized for a single bowl of soup. The handle is made of hard rubber for easy grip and protect your hands from the heat of hot soup. The handle is also long enough so that it works well with a big pot.
Got it cause of points. Nothing to speical about it.
very sturdy. seems well made. my wife loved it. it is replacing one that she lost at a function. does the job well. handles broth based soups and creamed based soups well.
