From apples to asparagus and peaches to peppers, you'll be well equipped to prepare all kinds of fresh produce with the Select by Calphalon 2pc Fruit and Vegetable Cutlery Set. The 3.5-inch paring knife is great for peeling and pitting fruits, mincing shallots, coring tomatoes, and creating beautiful garnishes. The 6-inch utility knife is the perfect in-between size for dozens of daily tasks from quartering apples and potatoes to slicing cucumbers and summer squash.
The handles on these knives are exceptional. Love the smooth grip. I cut raw potatoes to make fried potatoes and the knife was awesome. I cut a cantaloupe and apple slices also with ease. I had some very old knives that I finally threw out and replaced with these. While this opinion is my own I did receive this set to evaluate at no charge.
Yet again Calphalon has impressed me. These knives feel great in your hand and are able to take on a plethora of cutting jobs. I made a huge meal for 11 people which included lots of vegetables and fruits. I had no trouble getting through skins, rinds, and such. The knives are great at just being knives, but the feature that I love and where Calphalon went above and beyond is having the knife names visible on the handle. I absolutely hate the game of pulling out a handle thinking it is a chef knife and getting a bread knife, but with these it is very easy to look and see exactly what is being pulled out.

(While I received this product for free, the opinions and thoughts included in this review are my own.) After several uses of the Select Fruit and Veggie Knife Set, I am very happy with these knives! The high quality stainless steel blades are incredibly sharp and cut through any fruit/veggie with ease. I have used them on various items and they have cut with precision every time. I also love that the handles are labeled for quick identification. If you are the kind of home chef that stores knives in a block, the labeling on the handles makes it incredibly easy to quickly differentiate them. I am confident that these will be a staple in my kitchen for years to come (even more so since there is a full 10 year warranty). So pleased with this product!
I have been using these two knives and like them both. I noticed how smoothly the knife cut tomatoes. I like the handles and how it feels easy to hold the knife in my hand, it seems to fit well in my grasp. Also, it is a nice feature that the knives are labeled so they are easy to identify. It is a big plus to me that they have a 10 year warranty. I have enjoyed using this set of knives and feel they would make a nice addition to your kitchen. They'd make a great gift too for upcoming Mother's Day, Father's Day, or weddings! While I received this product for free, the opinions and thoughts included in this review are my own.

As a blogger, I received this knife set in order to do a review. We cook food from scratch daily and create recipes for the blog. We have a knife block set that needed an upgrade and as vegan foodies, this fruit and veggie knife set was a great place to start. This is the perfect one-two punch for the tremendous amount of fresh food that goes through our kitchen. The blades are VERY sharp without a serrated edge which means it slices through fruit and vegs like a dream. There is a surprisingly comfortable rubber grip handle on these knives so that when you experience the ultimate feeling of weightlessness mid-slice, it is safely controlled until the finish. The actual blades are longer than I thought they would be. I learned that fruit and veggie doesn't necessarily mean paring knife which I would think would be much smaller, however it makes using these much more versatile. The size of the handle is large enough to accommodate bigger hands and a nice curve design that hugs the palm. As Calphalon pots and pans fan, I'm now sold on their knives, too. The quality is what I've come to expect from them, from the streamlined look and brushed stainless steel detail, to the speed and efficiency of getting the job done and ease of cleaning.
