PROS: This is a beautifully designed, understated cup and saucer set for 6 everyone must have. I purchased this set for latte and cappuccino made with my Gaggia espresso maker. This is the perfect size cup for specialty coffee drinks - wide yet low. Made of ceramic, this Red Vanilla cup & saucer set features very smooth, well-made surfaces, beautiful shape - modern and stylish, excellent wall thickness which allows the liquid inside to remain hot, well-ballanced weight. This set arrived well packaged and on-time. I would recommend this set and most likely will purchase more Red Vanilla products in the future. Overstock.com is my favorite place to shop online! CONS: I wasn't impressed with the most annoying, difficult to remove product stickers almost permanently glued to each cup and saucer. It took me about 20 minutes to partially remove them by hand, 30 minutes dishwashing cycle, and 10 minutes scrubbing with alcohol to remove the sticky glue residue. I hope Red Vanilla could rethink the amount and easiness of removal of their product stickers.
I actually fell in love with it. I have a brand loyalty and it was my first purchase from this company. I was impressed with quality, simplicity, design and durability. I had them for weeks and they have no discoloration due to constant espresso use. planning to buy whole dinner set from red vanilla.
If what you need are substantial, nicely designed cups with saucers - - then this is it. If what you need are substantial, nicely designed cups with saucers that match the Red Vanilla Everytime dinnerware, pass this one up. It's not a match. The color is not pure white but an off-white. Nice, though. Totally mis-represented.
I love this line of dinnerware! They look very classic and sophisticated, but are sturdy. They are perfect for special occasions and are great for every day use as well. Very pretty. The color was a true match from the website.
