This is a very strong ladle. It's thick plastic, a good sized handle, and a good size scoop. I had a pretty flimsy ladle, the arm would bend if I was stirring the soup/sauce before I pulled a scoop up, so I went looking for a ladle that could stand up to not only scooping, but some stirring as well. I am very happy with this ladle.
good construction and solid.
A basic kitchen tool, the OXO ladle is great for soups & other liquids. It doesn't stain or fade.
