I love these dishes! I had purchased some other dishes that would get extremely hot in the microwave, so I got these. They are perfect for microwave to table use. The color is quite simple yet quite elegant.

The dishes arrived earlier than the estimated arrival date. They were in perfect condition, only one bowl was broken out of the entire set (I ordered 3 sets).These dishes are gorgeous. They are heavy and durable. They are suitable for everyday, or casual dining. I used them for Thanksgiving dinner and dressed them up a little with a fancy table cloth and silver. If you are looking for fancy dishes, these won't be suitable, but they will work if you are looking more for everyday and casual elegance.I have ordered many times from Overstock and have not been disappointed yet!
This is a nice set of dinnerware and I may purchase a set for my daughter. I highly recommend this set.

I had been looking for dishes for a while. It seemed they were either way too heavy = kids dropping them or flimsy/cheap = kids breaking them. These are the perfect weight and great quality. The color is cool -a pewter/blue color. Definitely recommend these. You can't beat the price. I might buy a third box just in case i can't find replacements down the road.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color is a hard to find pewter gray
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I like these dishes bc they are not too heavy, but they feel solid.
I love this stoneware; I ordered two 4-piece sets. It works great in the dishwasher and hasn't shown any signs of flatware scratching. Also, it doesn't seem to heat up to the touch in the microwave as much as my last set. I gave it a 4 only because I was hoping to spend a bit less, but I do believe it was worth it. Gray is hard to find and this is perfect for my needs. Also, it took longer to ship than the 2 pieces of furniture I ordered at the same time. Otherwise -- GREAT!
I purchased 2 sets of these dishes since the price was so good! They are fabulous! One box was perfect; no broken dishes; the 2nd box had some chipped plates; mug; salad plate, but I was able to get online right away and chat with one of the agents who was very helpful and assured me the replacements would be sent out with no problem. They don't even want the broken ones back. Overstock customer service is really good. I would definitely recommend these dishes for everyday use, they are heavy, modern/contemporary; look beautiful on the table; the price was awesome. I compared other 16piece sets and they were over $200+.
We needed dishes as we tossed all our old mismatched sets when we moved, after looking around and realizing that all the ones I liked were $$$-$$$ for one set!!, I came across these that looked great and the price was right! Can't beat the price and presently surprised by the quality, so happy I bought two sets!
I can't say enough about the simple elegance of this set. It's my first Red Vanilla purchase. It's so beautiful to plate on. I love how the food looks on these plates. It's is a good sized dinner plate, the smaller plate is a nice size too, the bowl is a bit on the small size, but still portion controlled and the mugs are so cute. They have been through the dishwasher, and I even dinged a dinner plate pretty hard on the marble top but no chips, so I think so far they are pretty sturdy too. I got my set for a steal too! You won't be disappointed with this set. The grey color is just gorgeous!
We bought a new home and I wanted new plates to match our dark espresso cabinets. Gray was perfect. I bought these based on the high reviews. I bought 3 sets. They are gray but with a hint of green against light. All 3 sets arrived unscathed.
Different pictures of this set showed very different colors, but the picture on the overstock site was the more accurate one. Great everyday set: seem very hardy without being bulky, and while they are still new to us, no issues with dishwasher or microwave. Finish has shown no signs of scratching or dulling. So far as ordering from Overstock: great communication, emails with tracking numbers, arrived on time, well-packed, no breakage, no chipping which also speaks to the apparent sturdiness of the set. We had previously ordered a different Red Vanilla set as a gift. Those dishes were much thinner, more modern, and we were sure they would show more breakage (younger family with small kids...boy who seems fascinated with frisbees...) but after a year now, no chips or breaks, seem very well made. With that experience, we went to Red Vanilla brand first, simply looked for a color and pattern that would compliment our kitchen and this fit the bill. Totally satisfied on all fronts.
I had read some unfavorable reviews regarding the quality and/or the packing of dishes on this site but I really loved the color and style of these dishes so I decided to hope for the best and order them. I am so glad I did!!! They arrived sooner than expected and were packed with great care, arriving in perfect condition!! I have used them for about a month, they wash perfectly, they wear well, they are very well made and solid. They go perfectly in my grey and white kitchen, they are a lovely color of grey with a black outline. Just love them!! I had also purchased the serving ware, and they also arrived in perfect condition.
I love these dishes. Depending on the light they have a sometimes blue/green tint to the gray. It is very pleasing. Dishes arrived safely and not one was broken or chipped. If I could change anything it would be the cup size. I prefer the oversized cups but really a great buy.
