I was eager to buy this item since I am a chef and I try to challenge new recipes outside of work. I bought two of these brand new after a detailed search, one of them being a present for my mom. However both of the items shipped were not what the seller claim them to be. It is a cheap, used versions of the shown item. They have plastic handles, not all made from steel main components and has stains and scratches all over. I strongly recommend not to buy.
