      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!

      I really like the knives but I do not like the steak knives. The tines are too close together and too small. When you cut into a steak the meat gets trapped in the tines and pretty soon the knive is tearing the meat and not cutting it. Very poor quality if you ask me.

      rusted and fell apart

      By 

      from dallas

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set with Block:

      We have had these knives for a little over two years. We had issues with rust the whole time, but that's the least of my issues. Our Santoku blade snapped at the handle in the middle of use; the blade flipped towards my spouse. We registered for these knives when we got married, but now I wish we had just invested in more high-quality knives. These should work for occasional use, but if you plan on using them frequently throughout the week, I would recommend investing your money elsewhere.

      I was searching for self sharpening cutlery set and this came up. It's NOT self sharpening so I will return it to a store. Very unhappy but I should have been more careful when ordering.

      Rusted

      from Illinois, United States

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set with Block:

      I received these knives as a wedding shower gift and loved them at first. They are now getting rust spots all over them. I'm very disappointed in them since they were expensive and I really wanted a nice set of knives.

      Rust

      By 

      from Wakefield, MA, United States

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set with Block:

      I am very disappointed in the quality of these knives. After using them for only a short period of time, they have all rusted. Also, they were never really that sharp to begin with. I use many other products from Calphalon and have always been happy. These knives were a let down.

      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.

      We used them for about a week and saw rust spots already. Returning them. Highly disappointed especially because of the brand name.

      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!

      Great Knife Set!

      By 

      from New Hampshire, United States

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set with Block:

      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!

      Lousy quality stainless steel

      By 

      from New Hampshire

      Comments about Calphalon Contemporary 17-Piece Cutlery Set with Block:

      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!
