Work as advertised, excellent price for a Wusthof product. The blades are slightly flimsy, if you attempt to cut too large of a "bite", will not cut cleanly. I was amazed the blades were so easy to clean, I assumed there would be gobs stuck in between, did not happen.

Best feature is size, it fits about anywhere you want to store it and does not take up excess space. Holds to capacity one "standard" bag of product, so no leftover sugar or void inside the Keeper.
