Bought this set and broke two knives in a month, both cutting into hard blocks of cheese. These knives look great but are not durable at all. Do yourself a favor and buy Farberware's higher quality full tang line for the extra 10 dollars.
I purchased these knives a few weeks ago to replace my old ones. I loves the look of these knives. They cut great, the only problem is they are rusting!!! There is rust on 4 knives, especially the pairing knife. It is covered in rust. They get cleaned by hand (mostly) and put right away so it's not like they are wet for long. I recommend if you are willing to pay $60, pay alittle more and get knives with a better quality metal.
I will admit I put a couple knives in the dishwasher after the first use because I thought they were a higher quality steel, NOT AT ALL! After that I've hand washed them in hopes the other would stay nice, still rusted! The set is a convenient set, but definitely not worth the money. I got mine on sale, still not worth it, I had just thrown a rusty set away!
I Just got these knife's about 4-5 weeks ago. Washed them once and started to get rust on all the knife's. I can't take them back so I called Farberware to see if they can do anything. They told me that I have to buy a special cleaner for the knife and they will not rust. I ask them if they can give me my money back they told me that I will have to pay for the shipping to send them back then they will send me my money back. And the knife part doesn't go all the way though the handle it will break when you are cuting something. I hope this helps anyone that is looking into buying these knife's.
We bought these knives about 2 weeks ago when we moved and they are absolutely wonderful they are very very sharp (I have cut my self 2 times) and easy to use. I have washed them in the dishwasher and by hand and have had absolutely no problems with rust or even spots for that matter. I highly recommend these knives to everyone and I plan on buying my mom a set for her birthday coming up.
Short tang, that breaks easily. Blades rust very easy. Poor quality
These are great knives in the beginning... extremely sharp however I washed them once and they rusted immediately!!!! Now they arent as sharp and even trying to sharpen the blade wont remove the rust... horrible!!
I've only had this set a few months. When I first used them, I thought they were great. They looked nice and were very sharp. I liked them well enough that I gave my 30 year old set of knives to my daughter. That was a mistake. After using them for a bit, there is rust around some of the handles and spots on the blades. I've had other Farberware products and they were fine. I'm now shopping for new knives again. They won't be Farberware
i have used these and the handles broke and they have rusted
I got the knives for a Christmas present and the first set the handles were loose so we exchanged them for the same product. MISTAKE!! I had a very expensive knife set that was getting old so I requested a new set. With in a week my knives were starting to rust. I emailed the warranty company and was told that I had to send the whole set back or the damaged ones and pay shipping and wait up to 7 weeks for a replacement. Seeing as how I only have one set of knives I was not able to ship them back with out purchasing a new set to hold me over for the replacement. I was cutting a block of cheese. . .not even a hard cheese and the handle broke. I had to call different numbers to get to the correct customer service center for the knives. Their solution was the same to ship the item back and wait. As of now I am waiting for a call back from a supervisor this is crazy!! Save some time and money and go with a different set!
These are the worst knives I have ever used. Won't even cut a tomatoe. Can;t wait to throw them out. Waste of money.
I bought this and after putting in dishwasher they rusted! The blades on almost all the knives have broken! Called the company and they want me to send them back to them at my expense and they will replace them....if they are replaced with the same product then I will have the same problem again!!!
I will never buy anything like this again, keep your money buy anything but this!
After just one use, the blade fell out of the handle and each knife I used did the same thing! They cut great, but of no use without the handles. Also, they rust despite hand-washing them each and every time. Too bad they are of such poor quality, because (in an attempt to leave on a positive note,) they do look good sitting on the counter.
These are the worst knives I have ever bought. I liked the soft grip and the appearance in the store. The second time I used one of the larger knives, the metal cut through the grip and now the knife is useless. I thought the metal ran all the way through when I bought them. All of the knives rust if left in water for more than an hour. Even using the dishwasher tarnished the blades. All this happened within two weeks of opening the box. Very unhappy with this product.
My husband and I got these knives for our new home in February of this year and I finally opened them and started using them in the middle of May. Its been 4 months and they are already rusting BADLY. My husband has a penchant for throwing things away so I lost the receipt and my way of registering the set for the warranty. I do not recommend these knives whatsoever. I should have known by the price that I was not getting a good quality product. Now when I go shopping this week I'll know to stay away from anything with the Farberware name!
easy to keep clean & is so pretty I want to use it only for decoration. nice price. I would recommend.
I gave this set to my daughter as a gift and the following is her review:
I am very impressed with the set of Farberware knives that I have recently been given. They have proven to be strong, sturdy and reliable. The handles are very easy and comfortable to grip, making for a relaxing and enjoyable cooking experience. Each knife in the set has been shaped perfectly for the use it is intended for; ie. chopping, paring, slicing, etc, making these tasks a breeze.
My wife and I love the new set of knives . Very good value at this price !!!
The knives are amazing, sharp, and stylish.
This is great!! You can't go wrong with Faberware. You may be tempted to spend the high dollars on some of the other well known names, but you definately will not be displeased with anything Faberware makes. The big soft grip is EXTREMELY helpful to anyone who has limited hand stregth or use. No more dropping knives on the floor or slipping easily out of your hands.
