I was looking for a sturdy, classic plate that I could combine with some of my existing dinnerware. This does the trick. Fits into the dishwasher perfectly as well. The 8-1/2" salad plates are just big enough for us to use as a small dinner plate. We actually use those more.
These plates are the perfect backdrop for food. Nice shade of white, small rim around the outer edge with a large eating area. One very small drawback is when the plates are stacked, it is just a bit difficult to remove a plate from the stack because of that rim. Just something to get used to I suppose. The quality and craftsmanship is perfect. Great job of packing them to arrive safely as well.
