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 5 out of 5 by Superb quality Beautiful set, extraordinary cutlery, well worth the price. They far pass any previous set I have used in quality and performance. December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by high quality We received the Contemporary 17-piece knife set as a wedding gift nearly seven years ago and I absolutely love these Calphalon knives. The blades are remarkable quality and the handles are comfortable. They clean well and look as good as day one. I've added a tomato slicer to the set, but otherwise I have never needed a knife that was not part of this incredible set. December 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Knives are sharp I bought it thinking it was the self sharpening knives and when I got it home and out I couldn't see anywhere where it says self-sharpening December 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best set ever!! I received this knife set as a Christmas present from my parents after they realized I was still using their old knife set they received as a wedding gift. Wood handles and all. But the blades had gotten so dull. After using these knives for 3 months I have been very impressed! I understand the "rust stains" everyone is talking about. I have left my dirty knives in the kitchen sink for about 3 days and they form faint rust spots. I just use the scrub side of my sponge and they rub right off. I have cut my thumb 1 time! I now make sure to pay attention when I'm hand washing my knives. I also try to hand dry them once I've finished cleaning them. Or if they sit they will get rust spots. But again, the spots scrub off. I have been very impressed with this set and have been thinking about getting a knife to fill the last slot on my block! I would recommend this set to EVERYONE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by RUST I recieved these as a wedding present in April, I was so excited to have a "nice" set, just about every single one of my knives are rusted, they do not sit in water or go on the dishwasher , hand wash everything , I thought it was just this set so I returned it and bought another set....and this set rust even worst than the first one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rusty I received these as a wedding gift from my registry. I was disheartened to see how quickly they rust after just a few months of use. Since the steak knives have serrated parts on them, they can't be sharpened. I also found the serrated points on the steak knives would shred any proteins I used with them. May 8, 2016
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
