I got this for a wedding shower gift because of reading the reviews on it that the Gvode is supposed to be so good and it's so much less expensive than the KitchenAid set and then it went on a lightning deal so I thought I'd purchase it for the wedding gift and compare it to my KitchenAid set. The Gvode set is cheaply made. I compared it with the KitchenAid set. The KitchenAid, each individual piece is so much heavier and solid. When I shake each piece of the Gvode, it rattles. The KitchenAid does not. It is solid. The Gvode quality is so inferior to the KitchenAid that I am returning the Gvode set today. I will then order the KitchenAid set for the gift. And I could see why the KitchenAid set weighs 7 pounds and the Gvode set weighs over 2 pounds less. The KitchenAid set is made in Italy. The Gvode is made in China with cheap materials.
