We bought 2 sets a year ago. These dishes are perfect if you like a sleek, uncluttered table. Can look elegant or casual. We dropped one bowl and it hit a tile counter - didn't shatter but it did chip which is to be expected. Not a single chip on any other piece after a year of use, banging together in the dishwasher, etc. I highly recommend, and am considering buying another set as "back-up" just in case..
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very sturdy, can be elegant or casual
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very
Item is color shown. More ivory or bone in tone. It is light weight which I love. The bowls are more for pasta so buyer beware if you are wanting deep cereal style. Very glossy and slippery when wet but this does not bother me.
Absolutely the best purchase ever made on amazon. Extremely high quality at a very low price. I am coming up with excuses to buy another set (what if this set breaks spontaneously in a hurricane, etc...:)
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Better in person.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I wish I needed more of these so I can buy them again. These dishes are perfect and the price does not reflect the amazing quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description can be a bit more detailed with sizes but when you get the set, it does not matter. The quality is unparallelled.
The dishes a simply lovely. They have the look and feel of fine china. I've had them for several months now, and they still look like new. The only drawback is that the dinner plates are rather large, which makes it hard to control your portions. On the positive side, the large size of the dinner and salad plates allows you to use them as a pallet to paint great pictures in presenting your food.
I purchased two sets. These dishes are exactly what I wanted....white, simple, shiny, classic. But I did receive one cup chipped. For me to replace that cup, I was required to return one of the whole sets which I didn't want to go through the trouble of doing after I unpacked everything. Overstock was very understanding and did give me a $XX credit....although I couldn't just buy one cup. So I dealt with the chip, no big deal. But since then, I have had some other chips and cracking of dishes. So I would say these dishes are beautiful and functional, but more delicate than described. I am pretty careful and although this set is new, and the plates are not stained, no knife marks or scratches....I have some chipped and cracked items. Would still purchase again because they are so pretty and a good value.
To start, these came very well packaged. It was a box within a padded box, and each dish had cardboard and paper around it. Not a scratch or chip on any of them. The color is off-white, leaning more towards beige. Which was a surprise, but a pleasant one, they reflect the light beautifully. They're nicely balanced and sit firmly in our cabinets, even when stacked. They are super smooth and feel sturdy. I've only used them for little over a week and I'm confident these will last us many years. I'm definitely going to be purchasing another set to replace our old everyday plate set. And while the price is a tad steep, I feel like it was money well spent. I recommend these to anyone debating whether to upgrade.
I am the CEO's assistant and as such, we are always having colleagues, board members and VIPs in our offices. During the last board meeting, I had expressed to my boss that our old dinnerware was beginning to chip/crack and he gave approval to purchase new dinnerware. I bought two sets of the 24 piece dinnerware set for our board meeting luncheon and am very pleased at how well the dishes were made (good quality) and as one attendee put it, "understated yet elegant." All the ladies in the office also gave their approval.
Can you describe the plate shape? Is it mostly flat with a slight lip at the edges or is the flat surface smaller with the rise to the edge larger and more gradual? Hard to tell for the pic. Thanks!!kruze on Oct 29, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
When you say the cup measure 3.5", do you mean height or width? Also, how deep is the bowl? Since you don't have any pictures, it is hard to tell how deep the bowl is.puck626 on Jul 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The Height of the Cup is 3.5 inches.
The bowls are 1.75 Deep, Capacity 30 ounces, 7.75”wide.

I'm really interested in this set, but confused about the color. The answer below says the set is true white. It does not look white on the picture, rather off white or bone. Also customers who bought the product say in their reviews that it's not pure white and the color on site is true with the actual product.bromba on Feb 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question and I apologize for the confusion. This item is in fact more of a bone color. I would definitely agree with other customers that the color in the picture perfectly reflects the color in real life. Please keep in mind, due to the difference of monitor colors, some colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all colors accurately. overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 28, 2013

Casual dinnerware is made of super strong hotel porcelain, but any dishware will scratch if enough pressure is used.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 5, 2012
What are the sizes/dimensions of each item?
also, in this photo, is the mug on the salad plate? I'd like to see a side view of the soup bowl if possible.kwakers012 on Aug 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The dinner plate measures 11.0 inches, the salad plate 8.5 inches, the mug 3.5 inches, the cereal bowl 7.75 inches. Yes, the mug is on the salad plate. Unfortunately, we have no other images to post.overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 14, 2012
