When I recently moved, I knew it was time to toss the old Pfaltzgraff and get something new. This robin's egg blue is my favorite color, and I thought that the Royal Doulton name indicated quality. These dishes are sturdy,but not too heavy, and very attractive. Quite pleased with this purchase, and at a good price.

Beautiful dishes. If you are looking for a simple, elegant, light-blue dinnerware set, I would definitely recommend this set to you. Everything arrived safely and undamaged. I inspected each piece individually, and the set felt to be medium-weight (by my own personal standards), yet seemingly sturdy. Only time will tell if the set is as durable as I perceive it to be, but it is truly a very pretty collection. Also, in my opinion, the set is a true "light blue". There are no green/teal tones, which I liked.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? slightly more blue, but still very much a "light blue".

I love these dishes! These are better quality than my heritage pfaltzgraff, since they revised the good old dish to be a smaller, thinner version.
These are the best quality dishes I own, aside from the good lenox china that never gets used.
One thing to mention that does not show - the "dinner plate" is huge. It looks like a serving platter. The smaller dish looks to me more the size of a smaller dinner plate. It is not a coaster for the cups. The small white dishes I have from my old white pfaltzgraff set look fine beneath the blue mugs - it isn't matchy matchy but that's ok with me.
I would have expected to pay far more for this set. I hope more come back in stock, I would have ordered another set if I'd known how good they are.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent quality. I have been using these dishes daily for 3 months and no scratches in the finish or chips. They are heavy & sturdy and seem like they will wear well.

Read a lot of reviews before purchasing. Someone noted that the set was slightly more aqua than in the picture. True depending on the lighting the color pales then intensifies. I wanted a set with a light color hue. All the dishes fit in my dishwasher easily except for the bowls. I have to space them out. Overall I am enjoying this set.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? slightly bluer

I purchased one set of these dishes to supplement my Noritake stoneware I've been using since my wedding 23 years ago. I am so pleased with the quality of this stoneware and the shape of the pieces. I was having a hard time finding dishes with a bowl shape that my husband liked. The bowls are flatter than most bowls and very similar to the Noritake Boulder Ridge we both loved. The blue is beautiful. I was so pleased with it that I bought another set (and may still buy another)! Both sets arrived in perfect condition with superfast shipping.
These Gordon Ramsey dishes are very functional...they don't chip easilty, do not get too hot in the microwave, and clean easily. The color is attractive and the design is classic. I have purchased more than one set from overstock and have purchased some other soup bowls from the Royal Doutlon site. Royal Doulton as well as JP Penney's routinely sells them for 40% retail, which is still a bit more than Overstock charges.
Hello hgirt, these plates are sturdy; however, not too heavy. Probably slightly lighter than Pfaltzgraff. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 7, 2014
