I just bought it and really think it's way cute. Don't like the plastic handle and knob on the fondue pot, but Mattel isn't Pleasant Company!! The plates are ceramic and the glasses, glass and the pot is metal. It's a very versatile set w/ lot's of play options. My only real gripe is the apples and strawberries are stuck to the fondue forks. Would have liked it better if they could be put on and off.
