I love these dishes. I sold all my old, heavy stoneware at a garage sale and replaced them with 2 sets of these square, white dishes from Corelle. They are perfect! The plates are large and food looks very elegant on the classic white. I am going to order another set. Better than I had anticipated!!
The plates seem to have a bit more surface area than round plates and hold food on them better. It's nice to get chinese food and dump out container in middle of plate and not have to worry about a piece or two rolling off on your lap, table, or floor. The price here with shipping was best we could find.
We use our fine china (Mikasa Couture Platinum . hand wash only) as our everyday dinnerware. Because it has a platinum band, it's not microwavable. With a teenage son & his friends coming & going and eating non-stop, I decided to go back to Corelle. I grew up with Corelle, and my father STILL uses the dinnerware from my childhood -- some 3 decades later!So far so good. I am going to order more for our condo in Miami. We'll see how it lives up to regular use by my husband and frequent winter visitors.The plain white is a little 'boring,' but I'll take boring as long as it's durable and my family can throw it in the dishwasher, oven and microwave!
I bought this set for my first place and I absolutely love the dishes. White goes with everything and you can mix and match them with the other Corelle square designs. The square shape adds a touch of elegance to everyday or even semi-formal use. I'm very pleased with this transaction!
I wanted these due to the light weight for my Mom. Salad plate can almost be used as a regular plate. The price was outstanding. Went back 2 weeks later to get some more for myself and they were all gone. I paid at least $25.00 more for 2 boxes elsewhere. Corelle dishes take up half the space in your cabinets/dishwasher. Love these.
