While singing as being made of polycarbonate, the hand parts slid and dropped and the handle parts were damaged. It is not possible to break it with PC. Perhaps it seems to be a bad product such as "PC what% blending". In this way, the engraving "Made in JAPAN" is also doubtful. Well, I do not want to buy it again, but I guess. The 100-degree scoop we used until now was more durable.
