I was completely disappointed in this purchase. It was made from cheap, flimsy plastic and the lid didn't fit. The tongs couldn't grip anything and were made of the cheapest possible plastic available. Whilst it was a relatively inexpensive item, it did not represent value for money in any way, shape or form and I would not have been able to give this as the gift I had intended. I returned it for a refund and this is the first and only item I have ever returned. I have never been so disappointed before.
