Omigosh, I have such a mish mosh of kitchen tools, etc. it's not even funny, but I've been cooking for 50 years. Some of my tools are 30-40 years old and still going strong. My potato masher is over 40-years-old and it's not one of those old-fashioned "S" ones.

I'm not too particular on the color/style of my utensils. Prefer perfomance and "feel" over decor. That's just me. However, I really can't handle the ones that have thick, clunky handles. Even though I have big hands for a female, I just can get into the thicker ergonomic tools. Also, because I have limited space, these oversized tools take up more of my space.

Glad you found something you are happy with. Best wishes for lots of stirring, flipping and whisking with your new tools.

Honestly, I agree with Wart. Form follows Function. Nothing I have is matched, unless you count the collection of cast iron skillets as a matched set. I have SS tri-ply pans, cast iron, a couple enamelled pieces, and some really big, really thin stock pots that are only good for simmering/boiling/poaching.

I buy my utensils along the same lines, functionality first. However, I will admit that most of my utensils are either black plastic, or black plastic with SS. They're all cheap. I buy them with the expectation that they will eventually meat a horrible end, and have to be replaced.

On that note, it will be a very sad day with my SS flat whisk gives up the ghost. I haven't seen one since the store I bought it at went under.

You can place me in the "Tacky" group; I won't mind.
