I haven't used this set but used similar in the past and the one I had didn't last long at all.

The pan rusted pretty quick, the spachelor melted etc. I'd always go for something more solid, silver looking with a hard base than these things. Even if you pay a couple more quid for another pan, if it's a good one it'll last for absolutely ages. Infact you could still be using it many decades later.

Same goes with cutlery, best to buy stuff that lasts, i.e.- stuff that doesn't bend.

You'll get about 1 use out of this stuff. Rubbish quality

I bought a similar set for uni, from wilkinsons. They didnt last me freshers week. The pots started to rust and I was forced to buy another set. This is coming from someone who knows how to cook (so didn't burn my food) and how to take care of my pots (not scraping them). Just thought I'd share my experience as I was annoyed when I realised I'd wasted my money.

I agree, I had some cheap things for my first year at uni and they did not last very long either. The plastic spachelors, ladels, masher, etc are definitely a no no as you will more than likely find they will melt and bits of melted plastic will be in your food.

It is probably worth paying a few pounds more and buying one pan, one frying pan and a few essential metal utensils (especially a good peeler and can opener). I am sure almost everyone will have multiples of pans that you will share at uni, so there is no need to buy a big set of items when buying a few, more expensive but better quality items will be much better and last longer for later years Some things like cheap teaspoons though are good value, as they always would go walk about, but for the essential cooking items I think it is better just to spend a little extra

Well done. Not one of my kids ever cooked at Uni. Any decent stuff I gave them got robbed. Sent them off with cheapest ever quilt......who would want a feather down one back after 3 yrs at Uni oO

There is nothing I ever wanted them to bring back from Uni.

hot form me,great if moneys tight

It's never going to be great quality at this price, but from my expericne of uni, best get cheap ones as you don't tend to cook that much and your stuff will get used, ruined or nicked by other people anyway.
