Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusted in less than 3 months We registered for these knives for our wedding. Unfortunately, they rusted within 3 months after normal use. I expected more from calphalon and from crate and barrel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rust We used them for about a week and saw rust spots already. Returning them. Highly disappointed especially because of the brand name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the money Just got married and originally had an expensive knife set on our registry, which, of course, we did not get. (The sales lady told us to put that one on there) So we looked in the stores and online for a set that we would be able to afford and found this one and had everything we were looking for. So far, we love them! They are hand wash only which you will find in any nice knife set. I also recommend you immediately dry them so they don't rust. For the price, they are perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these knives! I've owned these knives for many years. I love them. Best knives for the money. Very comparable to some of the top brands out there. Glad to see them offered at C&B now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Knives These knives cut extremely well! The block is heavy and the knives themselves are sturdy. The only drawback is that the knives have to be hand washed and dried almost immediately after use, but they are well worth it - especially for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter set I purchased this set after I bought my first home, deciding it was time to upgrade from the "mix and match" set I had put together over the years. The set contains everything you need. The block itself is very nice and looks good on the counter. The knives are good quality and stay sharp. I like that the bottom of the handles for most knives (not the steak knives) have a label so you can quickly grab the knife you need.The only downside, and I believe at least one other reviewer commented on this, is that if you do not dry them they develop orange/brown rust markings. I have only had this happen to one steak knife and it's barely noticeable, but is something to keep in mind when caring for your knives. That being said, I would certainly buy these again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Wedding Gift My nephew and his future bride had this on their gift registry list, so I decided to buy it for them. They later raved about the set and said they used it every day. I then bought a set for myself. It's great quality at a great price. I highly recommend this Calaphon set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great weight! Love these knives. They have a great weight when holding them in your hand although I would prefer a different handle shape/size. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Knife Set! We registered for these and love them. They work great! Only downfall is they are hand wash only - which is my own fault for not realizing that when I registered for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knife Set! I haven't had the opportunity to use every single knife in this set yet but WOW! The bread knife is amazing, the Santoku knife is great for slicing, the steak knives are excellent, and the utility knife and paring knife are great!! Okay, okay, so maybe I have used every knife. This block looks beautiful on our kitchen counter as well!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Skip this set So sorry that I did not keep my old set. When we bought these we were not careful-- thinking we were buying a set with a lot of different knives. If you look carefully you will see that there are only 7 types of knives, a sharpener and shears. One would think that you have knives for everything, but you don't. If you need a straight serrated knife to cut a tomato you have to use the bread knife or the odd shaped steak knives. Skip this set.
