I bought this set for our second home in another city. They serve beautifully, are oversized and are simply classic and elegant. They are made in England, sell for much more on Denby's website and are safe to use. Best of all, they are not made in China. They are made in England. I have been waiting to find these again and feel fortunate to have stumbled on them on Christmas night. What a surprise and pleasure.Read More
We ordered 4 sets and all arrived packaged extremely well. We had no defects, chips, cracks, or issues of any kind. The delivery was quick and painless. The dinnerware was packed in multiple layers (boxes in boxes) and heavily wrapped in bubblewrap and then floating in peanut packing. The dinnerware itself has superb quality characteristics. The finish is excellent, smooth and tough. I've occasionally banged the edge of them against the inside edge of my granite sink and have not damaged a plate yet. Note that the dinner plate is rather large, so make sure you have the cabinet depth to hold it. Our cabinets can barely accommodate these plates. They are solid in construction without being overtly heavy but they aren't super light, like CorningWare. Each dinner plate weighs 2 lbs so plan accordingly and make sure your shelves can hold the weight. The smaller plates are perfectly sized for deserts or small salads and are proportionately similar to the dinner plate and also of high quality. The plates are large enough to hold a fair amount of food without being a teacup plate. The inner surface area is about the size of a large slice of bread with a 1/2 inch space around it. They weigh in at 0.8 lbs a piece. The bowls are really neat. They are somewhat squared off, but curvacious enough to make them easy to use for solids as well as liquids. For example, they work equally well with a fresh fruit cocktail as the do for every day cereal. They are plenty deep enough without having a huge footprint and they stack very well. A stack of 5 is about 8 inches in height. They weigh in at 0.9 lbs a piece. The mugs are very nice and hold 12 oz with about 1/2 inch to go from the brim. The are well balanced and not too heavy. I've noticed that they retain the heat very well - better than some of my thick walled cafe mugs. Each mug weighs 1 lb. Styling wise, I prefer the look of these plates and the real estate they afford by being partially square over the round variant. The rounded accents soften the harsh square style and allow them to be more universally deployed in various dinner settings. The white color is exactly as shown with no tint at all. The slight raised edge is perfect for outlining and showcasing the food contained within. They are very stylish without being overtly contemporary in my opinion. Overstock provided these at a fantastic price (about 1/2 of retail), which really can't be beat. I was shopping for a very long time for quality everyday dinnerware and these hit the mark. They are probably a notch higher in quality that I would have gone had the price not been so good. I've seen these show up on Overstock and disappear quickly, so when I saw them the last time, at the fantastic price, I jumped on them immediately and am glad I did.Read More
I love this dinnerware set. The dinner plates are large and an ample weight . The mugs are a decent size. The smaller plates of this set are only big enough for a pat of butter and a roll. I have ordered the dessert/salad plates separately . These dessert/salad plates are larger than the bread/butter plate and smaller than the dinner plate . This set is a very nice , sturdy every day Dinnerware . It would also be nice for company as well . Typical porcelain with a slight blue/gray undertones ....simple and elegantRead More
Love this simple classic white. The shape has a contemporary look. I bought two sets and enjoy them. i had searched long and hard for dishes NOT made in China. One bowl was destroyed and i ordered a replacement directly from Denby. The bowl does not match the original set and the replacement bowl was made in Tiawan. So, i would have given this set 5 starts, but because the replacement bowl was not the same, I gave it 4 stars.Read More
I purchased three sets of these dishes sight unseen for a second home, and love using them. They are versatile enough for both everyday use and holiday feasts, with a lovely glaze, nice heft and pleasing shape and edges. The mugs and bowls are just the right size for us. The tea plates are small, but work well with the other pieces. I was concerned that the oversized dinner plate would encourage us to overeat, but the lip seem to frame our food without making a small portion look skimpy. We have had no problem fitting them into our dishwasher and cupboard, either, and they are durable enough that they have survived hitting our granite counter tops many times over the course of two months of daily use. This was a great purchase.Read More
The set is lovely in every way, but I cannot recommend it because half of the bowls arrived in pieces. They seemed to be carefully wrapped, but apparently were not. Overstock, which has always had excellent service, could not replace the broken bowls so they provided a discount on any future purchase...a fair offer. I was unable to find any replacements for these bowls anywhere. So yes, this is a nice set, I love it, but since it can't be safely shipped, I'd say, skip it.Read More
I have only been using the dishes for a few weeks but so far I love them. All pieces are of a good size. The bowls are great for cereal, ice cream, small salads and fruit. The finish is smooth and a soft white color.Read More
This is a lovely, sleek and classic pattern that will not go out of style. There is no scratching with silverware use. It comes out of the dishwasher looking brand new and microwave use is great. I would definitely buy this pattern again and would recommend the Denby square to anyone. I did chip one plate, but it was because of the strange angle with which the plate hit. I have accidentally hit them several times later with no problems. Treat yourself to a new dinnerware set and you won't be sorry!Read More
Questions & Answers
Thank you for shopping with us kiehn. The scale I used showed 2.2 pounds. Have a great day.
Where was the product made?
Thank you for your question 1martam. The Denby White Square Porcelain 16-piece Dinnerware Set is made in Portugal. Have a great day.
Could you verify where these dishes are made? In an answer, overstock customer care says Portugal, but the first two reviews I read said they are made in England. Thanks for your consideration.
Hello resgirl, our records show that these are made in portugal. Thank you for shopping with us.
Aside from being porcelain, is there a huge difference between this set and the one that is out of stock on this site? (http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Denby-White-Square-16-piece-Dinnerware-Starter-Set/4678685/product.html) I would like the other set because I have read that stoneware is more durable than porcelain, but if there is not a huge difference I may purchase this set. Also, sometimes in the title for Denby products it says "stoneware" but when reading what material the dishes are made from, it says "porcelain" which is confusing - my understanding is that these are two different types of material. Finally, I thought Denby was made in England - are standards in Portugal similar to those in England? Thank you for your reply.
Both of these sets are very cute. The only difference I can see is that the set we currently have in stock Item #: 14755513 offers tea plates instead of salad plates which are larger than the tea plates. I have researched it and I believe these terms are being used interchangeably (stoneware and porcelian) for these particular dishes. Here at Overstock we stand behind the quality of all of our products and if needed we will contact suppliers and get any situation resolved.

Many bowls and plates are considered microwave safe; however, if you use the wrong dish, you could ruin both the dinnerware and the dinner. Microwaves are convenient appliances, but there are a few precautions you should know about when it comes to your dishes. Always check to see if a dish is microwave safe before using it in the microwave. Some containers can break, melt or scald you. Some containers can also damage your microwave, such as foil-lined containers. Microwave-safe dishes can be used to both cook and store food. Non-microwave safe containers can only be used for storage or serving.
