Calling all Calphalon Knife owners!

If you purchased Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery knives between August 2008 and December 2016, please take note of this recall! The recalled knives were sold individually and in sets at Macy’s, J.C. Penney, Kohl’s, and other stores nationwide, including online at Amazon.

Why the recall?

Calphalon has issued a voluntary recall for the Contemporary Cutlery knives because of a potential safety concern identified with the blade breaking from the handle. About 2 million Calphalon knives are being recalled after 27 reports of finger or hand lacerations.

Which Knives are being recalled?

The Knives being recalled have one of the following model numbers embossed on the blade: 1808008, 1808009, 1821332, 1922890, 1922971, 1922976, 1932810, KNR0005C, KNR0007C, KNR10045C, KNR4008C, KNSR002C, and KNSR0102C.

    Great…I have 2 sets 😤

    My set is part of the recall. About 2 years ago one of the knives broke while I was using it (the reason they are now being recalled). I was startled, but thankfully didn’t get hurt.
    I contacted Calphalon. They asked for photos of the broken knife and sent me a replacement within a few weeks. Really great customer service. The only difference now is that they’re asking for the defective knives to be sent back to them.

    These are my knives and I’m glad they’re offering a replacement. However how am I supposed to be without knives for 4-6 weeks??

      The steak knives aren’t part of the recall. We’ll have to use those while we wait for the replacements.

      This is my biggest issue! And I hope the postage back to them includes shipping, insurance, etc so they can’t claim they never received my $300 in knives!

    The first knife pictured was the one that broke on me. Not completely but the blade split in the middle ; ( . I purchased mine at Home Goods.

    Great costumer service. Contacted Caphelon costumer service asking to purchase a new tray for my toaster. They sent me a new one, no charge.
