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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great set My husband and I were tired of constantly buying knives so we decided to try these. We have had them over two year and love how they cut and handle. I just have to be careful after he sharpens them. I always end up cutting myself. I just wouldn't put them in the dishwasher. I don't mind having to hand wash them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set for the money I have the had this set for over 4 years now. I even added a boning knife and a 5 inch santoku to the set. They hold a good blade and are pretty easy to sharpen. Over all a fine set of cutlery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty and sharp These knives are sharp, watch out onions, tomatoes, steaks and fingers! Yup some accident might happen but they're are amazing. Only bummer, which we knew before getting it from other reviews, is that it's not dishwasher safe and you really need to wash them asap after you use or they start rusting and getting stained. Still they're very nice knives and the steak knives are great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product We purchased this product a year ago and have been completely satisfied. The knives have been used daily and we have encountered no problems at all. We never put them in the dishwasher. The dishwashing detergent will cause pits in the blades and can cause them to rust. If you take care of them they will last a lifetime.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great gift for newlyweds My husband and I registered for this not only for it's affordability but how much it provides. The knives are incredibly sharp, and there is an extra space for knives you may buy outside of the product which I like. The steak knives are not that sharp though. We are using the ones from our old set in their place.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rusts I received this off my wedding registry and within months, Rust stains started appearing. I called C&B customer service, and they advised that it was "pitting" stains from acidic foods. I hand wash each knife, and they don't sit with food on them for too long so I decided to bring them in store. They tried to polish the example I brought in and when they we're unable to remove the stain, they gave me a new set. Same exact thing happened with the new set. I'm not sure what the problem, is but the Purchasing team at Crate & Barrel needs to talk to Calphalon. Clearly, I am not the only one experiencing this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rust rust and more rust Received this set a few months ago as a wedding gift. Rust spots appeared after just a few weeks. Only a few months of use and they are getting worse and worse. Waste of money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product for the price. So far have had no issue with these knives, they do require regular sharpening as do most knives. Block is a great color and grip on knives feel great in your hand.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Already Rusting We received these knives as a random wedding gift. Knowing we needed new knives anyways, we kept them. We've had them for two months and they are already rusting. The smaller knives also don't cut very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Knives I bought these knives about 2 and half years ago. This is my first set of good knives and I am glad I found some that I love. I have used them on a daily basis.
