And also the cutlery is made in China, but in its own factory. In the test in the said consignment a WMF cutlery (Merit) section regarding rust and scratch resistance from excellent, so I've decided no abdominal pain for a purchase of the model Sydney.
The article was supplied by Amazon quickly and well packed.
The set comes in a beautiful box. It is meticulously crafted and makes a high quality impression. The design is always a trademark of WMF is visually a matter of taste - I like it well. The cutlery is quite handy, here I had previously because of the "round" handle concerns. Due to the long knife blade also large / wide pastries as Ciabatta leave good coat. The blades cut smoothly through steaks or raw tomatoes.
Let's talk about its durability: even after a few weeks use the knife look like new. Cutlery has it today really not easy. Earlier it was washed and dried immediately after use. Water stains and rust had little chance. Today, in times of dishwashers you must therefore always maintain the cutlery and a few rules to follow (advice WMF shall submit to the set in), then it will last a lifetime at the product. The cutlery is to be made of a stainless material (Cromargan, a separate name for the normal and usual in the price range 18/10 stainless steel). Sometimes sneak in other dishes but stainless parts (bolts of pot lids, inferior cutlery, etc.) with the machine, the "rust" will then apply to other dishes, just like also the cutlery. Discovered in time, it can be but wipe easily. This would be unfair to blame the cutlery. Even water spots can be prevented by timely unloading the dishwasher or other cleaners. Possibly you have to experiment a bit here!
Conclusion: WMF course you pay a certain premium for brand and design, but also gets a certain quality. The build quality is high, the design is simple but nice and the handling for everyday use. Best Buy!
