I am very pleased with this set. The plates are large and have a bit of a lip so nothing "sloshes" and the bowls are deep and roomy. The design is very similar to the dishes I got when I was first married but sold after a couple of years because they were just too heavy (I couldn't pick up more than 2 or 3 plates at a time). With this set I can manage 3 or 4 plates in one hand. I have had them for several weeks now and have not seen any crazing on the glaze or utencil marks, which was also a problem with my old set. They are dishwasher and microwave safe, and, even oven safe, although I have not put them in the oven. I am happy with this purchase, with Overstock, and , with Mikasa. Oh, and the price beat the Mikasa outlet!
One week before Christmas I told Santa I wanted a 45 pc set of French Countryside dishes. Three days later, they arrived on my doorstep. Each piece was in perfect condition. We immediately put them to use. I have had plates in the freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher and found no problems. The plates hold their heat when pre-warmed. The entire set is a beautiful light cream color and each piece feels balanced in my hand. With other patterns, we have always discarded all cups and saucers because the saucers are too small and the cup handle is uncomfortable. Because of French Countryside’s saucer size, cup handle and balance, this is the first set of dishes I kept the cups and saucers to. I was a bit concerned about how heavy the plates might be, but found I can easily carry a stack of eight.
We love our new dishes, and have recommended them and Overstock to our long distance (LOL) friends. We’ll be ordering more setting and pieces soon!
I needed more plates for my Mikasa French Country Stoneware pattern due to crazing and chipping after many years of use. This is a timeless pattern and I did not want to start over with another set of dinnerware. The quality is exceptional. Found out that the outlet had closed (time to panic?). Overstock saved me time and money-I purchased place setting for eight with bonus serving pieces! I paid probably 25% of what I had paid years ago for the original dinnerware. What a deal! The order arrived promptly without breakage or any other issues! Overstock is my new favorite website.
I already have this pattern, but I ordered this set to give me enough matching place settings for everyone at Thanksgiving. It arrived very quickly and was packaged very well so there was no breakage. This was a super great price....got 8 place settings plus some serving pieces for less than what 4 place settings would have cost me retail. I'll continue to check with Overstock.com for other items I may want in the future.
We love these dishes. We received our first set of Mikasa dishes for our wedding and they lasted almost 20 years. We looked at many different kinds of dishes but ended up going with Mikasa again and we are so glad we did. They are beautiful and durable. We may order another set! Only complaint is we wish the coffee mugs were a little bigger. Great deal on Ovestock. Shipped fast and no breakage. Thanks!
