Le Creuset Spatula Set w/ Crock Le Creuset is a reputable company. They've been making high-quality, functional, beautiful, cookware for a long time. If you have the money, and can buy their pots, pans, dutch ovens, etc., it would be a worthy investment.

But while their cookware is of significantly better quality than its Target counterparts (and such differences will impact one's cooking), I am not so sure the same is true for such basic kitchen items as spatulas and slotted spoons.

The set, which includes a mini, small, and medium-sized spatula, a large spoon, a jumbo slotted spoon, and a silicone basting brush, meets Le Creuset's high standards. The crock is very attractive. The silicone heads are removable for easy cleaning. Silicone resists high heat, and it won't scratch your cookware, making it very useful in the kitchen.

But Le Creuset isn't the only company manufacturing silicone cooking utensils. Many companies are using silicone now. Of course, Le Creuset's Spatula Set and Crock are made in the USA. This is a definite bonus, but it still doesn't explain the hefty price tag.

What you're really paying for with this set is the "Le Creuset" name that is emblazoned on each individual item. (And, of course, the ceramic crock used to house the utensils, but it, too, screams "Le Creuset.")

Personally, I am not such a big fan of providing free advertising for companies that charge me an extraordinary amount for their products, no matter what their quality may be. I don't sport the swoosh. You'll find no C's or K's on my jeans. I go out of my way not to be a walking advertisement for anybody. Why should my kitchen be any different?
