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 saw this set of plates in other stores and was about to purchase them there before I found them on Overstock at a cheaper price. They are a light robin's egg blue color and they're really beautiful. Great quality!
After seeing this set on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares I wanted it. Went to the mall and found only one store selling them, to which I was not happy with the price at 133.00 for one set of 16 pieces. Told my husband lets go home (3 hour drive) and I'll look on the internet. Searched for about half an hour until I found them here on Overstock at half the price! So needless to say we bought 2 sets, enough for having guests too.
When we seen this set I knew I wanted the white BUT after seeing the blue maze at the store we fell in love and my husband wanted the blue maze. Don't confuse this blue with other blue sets Ramsay sells, it is not the same blue, it has to say blue maze. The color is close to how it looks on here, but better! Buy yourself this set you will love it! The dishes are shiny and high quality with Royal Doulton and Gordon Ramsays names on the bottom, it looks very high end and feels very high end. Some people complain they don't fit in the cupboards but we have standard cupboards and they fit just fine. They are dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe. Don't know about the oven though, who cares!
The dinner plates are a tad larger than normal but food looks so nice presented this way, we love everything about them, even the box they came in!
For the last ten years we have been eating off of black dishes. My husband said he was tired of the black and wanted a change. Well guess what, I had just ordered these the day before so I asked him if blue was okay. He really likes them too.
I ordered 2 sets of 4, love the color, love the styling so I ordered another set of 4!
They are visually pleasing and the shapes of the coffee mugs and bowls are comfortable in most everyone's hand. They come out of the dishwasher looking great. Dinner for 12 tomorrow night and I know my food will look appetizing plated on this casual yet elegant dinnerware.
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
