I kept these dishes (I bought service for 4) because I loved the shapes. My husband does not like the bowls because he thinks liquids will easily spill out. The plates are flat and juices may run off the sides if you aren't steady when you carry them (with food on them). They are very thin and may break easily. My traditional mother thinks they are funny looking. Needless to say they aren't often used. Oh well - my search continues...

As others have said, this dinnerware is stunning. The unique shape and "flowing" appearance can create a lovely modern or traditional table, and it is perfect for both casual and more formal occasions. I've looked for years to find "delicate" pure-white china that is a bit unusual, and this set fits the bill. I am also ordering the Red Vanilla Summer Sun fruit bowls and sugar/creamer to complement these Extreme White settings.
I purchased 8 sets of these dishes and I LOVE the dishes but the bowls keep cracking. I've had one break while in the microwave and two have come out of the dish washer cracked. I have not had any problems with the plates but the bowls are either cheap or are NOT dishwasher and microwave safe as they claim. Honestly I'm rather disappointed. I thought I bought a quality set of dishes and now I don't have a complete set. UGH.
I haven't actually used my dinner set yet, my family will be moving into a minimalist/modern home under construction in 2015 and I couldn't bear the idea of bringing my old beat up dinner set with to another home. This place setting was priced within my budget and looks like it will be the elegant and clean statement that I want to make at dinner. The tea cup is as small as other reviewers pointed out, the bowl is sufficient for soup, maybe a tad large for cereal and small for pasta. I ordered 12 sets and 2 of the bowls came damaged, all other items were in great shape. Overstock customer service was excellent and replaced them within a couple of weeks. I'm really looking forward to using them!
These are beautiful plates but they are straight with no curves. Yes, they have this modern look but what is the whole point of buying bone china and not use them. Don't buy them if you eat anything other than Sushi, Burgers. The food will spill off of the sides and the bowls have weird sides and wide.
I have not yet used this set, but it is simply beautiful. So elegant and contemporary....And quite sturdy for one china.
The only negative comment I have is that the cups are small, 8 ounces. Would be so much better, if they were 10 ounces, although they are fine for after dinner coffee.
Still, I would highly recommend these, as the 10 ounce mugs are sold separately, and also, there are many china mugs that could be used with this lovely plain white set. As I said, I have never seen a more practical, yet unique set of plain white chine, such as this one.
Hello phyllisc2, thank you for your inquiry! The bowl measures 7.75” inches across, point to point, and holds 22oz. I hope this helps. Happy shopping! overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 5, 2014
