    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Where’s the a canister? I’m hoping to get to try this product although I’m going to have to order again. Although the item is described as the insert, the picture of the product clearly shows a stainless canister with it. Don’t be fooled (as I was) by the photo. There is no canister wit this particular item.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product degrades in less than 1 yr We have had this approx. 11 mos and we can no longer easily insert knives and when we extract knives, the black plastic pieces fly out.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I can’t get the Koosh out to clean! I’ve had my kapoosh for more than a year and it’s great for storing knives. My problem with it is I can’t get the koosh material out of the canister to clean it. I tried dumping it out, pulling it out with pliers and filling it with soapy water. It’s stuck! Any suggestions?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All knives always available I bought this with the stainless steel caddy 18 months ago. I love the fact that ALL my knives are available. Since there are no set knife slots you can get a lot more knives & kitchen scissors into the caddy. Love it so much that it is now my go-to wedding gift!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Kapoosh! I had seen this in the catalogue and thought how inventive. I went to the store and purchased it with the stainless steel holder as shown, came home put my knives in it and got rid of that wooden block that took up too much room on my counter. I have to say that I love this holder. I was able to store more of my knives, my kitchen scissors, and my kitchen fork. Love, love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife holder ever. Holds any size knife, unlike knife blocks that limit size and quantity on knife storage. Love it!

  • I have the stainless steel large container (which I like very much) and a new kapoosh refill. Please, how (in the world) do I get the old insert out? Thanks!

    Asked by: ffred
    Hi ffred, The Kapoosh can be removed by pulling it out of the canister. You may need to squeeze it together to remove, especially if choosing a canister with an inner rimmed edge on top.

    what caddy does this fit into?? It is 8 3/4" diam but all the caddies I can find are too small. Please help!!

    Asked by: Tina1309
    Hi Tina1309, At the moment, we don't have any large caddies sold individually to accomodate the width of the Kapoosh Knife Holder Insert. However, we do sell some knife holders that already come with the insert:
