Rated 2 out of 5 by JessD 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 Bart from Great Set of Knives I bought a set of Zwilling and took them back. For less money one of the employees recommended these blades. I took them home and immediately have been happy with the purchase. They hold a great edge. They have a great weight to them. They aren't flashy and do their job well. Don't see myself needing knives for a very long time. Thanks Calphalon! Totally would recommend. Great knives for the value.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JessPell from Rust 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kfeld31 from Not Dishwasher Safe When we registered and received this for our wedding we were very excited. We love the Calphalon cookware we received and assumed this knife set would be of equal quality. While the knives are sharp and work well they are very prone to rusting. If we would have looked more closely and saw they were not dishwasher safe, we would chosen another product. Even when they are hand wash, if they are meticulously dried immediately or they will rust. We have been using them for about 2 months and many of the pieces have areas of rust. Its definitely not worth the money, and we will not be replacing this set with another Calphalon set. The cheap set we had prior to this one never showed any signs of rust, was dishwasher safe, and they were 25% the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alexab8 from Rusted 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Busylady 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 2 out of 5 by Ripz from 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.
