Looks like a Corningware Home Select, based on that finish and the squared off-ish base. The ones made before 1998 had that prominent stamp on the back, later models had it it reversed (the letters were inset, not raised). Unfortunately the line was discontinued in 2009, as the market has been flooded by cheaper imitators and lower-grade steel from other countries. Your model looks more burnished than most, but that's not a surprise if this is a thrift-store cast-off. Something to be aware of, the top bit (the tines and the, uh, scoop?) had a bad habit of flattening out and then breaking over time, so the likelihood of finding replacements, let along a full set, will be difficult. You might be able to find some on eBay or something, going rate should probably be no more than a buck per utensil, but I'd be frankly surprised if they were even that high. Shipping will probably be more. One thing to keep an eye on is that these are, superficially, very similar to Target's Threshold Kayden style, so it may be worthwhile to showroom one of those at your local Target in lieu of scouring sites hoping for orphan matches
