I purchased this set of 5 wooden utensils to decorate my kitchen during the holidays. I do not plan on using them to cook with but simply as a decoration to hang on the wall. I like that the designs are burnt into the wood which gives me the look I was aiming for. I do wish the designs had been reversed on at least one side so the design would be upright when choosing to use the drilled hole to hang the utensils as opposed to the design only being upright when standing them up in a container. These are nice quality wooden utensils and look great during the Halloween season.
