Rated 4 out of 5 by It's what the kids wanted. From my perspective it looks like it will be great for the newlyweds. Only complaint is the packaging - looked like it was a returned product. Hope we don't find anything wrong when it is opened! July 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Help needed with RUST issue Iv'e always wanted a nice set of knives so I finally bought the best I could afford as a retirement present for myself last year. All 13 or 14 pieces have already rusted and I'm afraid to use them. October 2, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Lousy quality stainless steel I had a cutlery set for almost 15 years that we got as a wedding present. They had wooden handles and I felt that after 15 years it was time to upgrade to a newer set. I bought this set and paid what I thought was good money for a good set of knives that didn't have wooden handles. While I will say they were extremely sharp (as you would assume for a brand new set) they had to be hand washed and dried immediately or they will get rust spots. Not what I expected from STAINLESS STEAL! The knives I had for 15 years never did that. I have owned them for just over six months and already one of the knives has rusted at the handle and then snapped in half while cutting with it. I would like to see something made today last more than a year. Why is everything made today cost more and the quality stinks. Not what I expected out of the Calphalon name and the price I paid!!!! Oh and the tips of knives are so thin that if you put them in your dish strainer it will bend the tip. Cheap! January 22, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rust We used them for about a week and saw rust spots already. Returning them. Highly disappointed especially because of the brand name. September 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by looks great cuts just as good I bought these a week ago to match my pots and kitchen appliances. They state Dishwasher safe on the box. I have only had then for a short period, but so far, NO Rust! September 3, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great gift! I purchased these for my husband as a birthday gift for my husband as he's been wanting a new set. He loves them! January 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THESE KNIVES! I LOVE the knife set! The blades are razor sharp - they slide through the skin of tomatoes like nothing (the ultimate test)! And even though the knives are a little heavier than the knives I already had - I don't really mind and I kinda like it. They look nice and they're easy to care for. I also like that the knives are labeled so that when you store them in the block, you can easily identify them without having to pull them all out to find the one you want. I'm getting rid of the knives I had - these are awesome! I have already recommended them to all the 'cooks' in my family. I even let my dad borrow the chef's knife. He is really into kitchen utensils and did lots of research before he bought his last set of knives. He was really impressed and commented that he liked the knife better than his own. Great Job Calphalon! May 12, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by great cutlery bought this set for my wife . the cutlery is well balanced and super sharp. the wood block match perfectly to are cherry kitchen cabinets. I also order the 2 PC - 8 in slicer and serving fork set. there is 2 extra slots in the block and holds the 8 in slicer knife perfect but not the serving fork . this is the only complaint we have. the block should of been design to hold one. the knifes are all well marked as to what they are on the end of each handle except for the 8 steak knifes . the solid steel knifes rubber grips are perfectly design for your hands to grip them . you do want to be careful unwrapping them when they arrive. my wife was so scarred of slicing herself because there so sharp. each knife comes with a plastic safety tip for your safety . also when the wood knife block is filled with all the knifes it is heavy. I have cut up veggie ,potato , bought a whole boneless sirloin was able to slice right though it in a single pass raw with the 8 inch Chiefs knife to turn it into 3 pot roasts and 8 steaks for diffrent meals. I was very impressed with little pressure applyed to the knife . CON - the wood knife blocks not having a slot to handle the Serving Fork December 7, 2012
