I have been looking for dishes for some time and thought I found the perfect set...so I purchased two to have backups for the occasional mishaps. The quality was poor all the way around from packaging to product. The dishes had numerous imperfections...bubbles, missing finish color under the clear coat, even scratches. Begrudgingly I would have dealt with it, but when I had completed opening all of the pieces and was putting them into the dishwasher, I noticed that the color of the pieces was not consistent across the set. Some of the pieces had a bronish/black cast and others had a bluish/black cast - clearly a different dye-lot! Even my husband, who has color blindness issues, could see the difference. Do not buy these if you plan on using several pieces at the same time, ie. bowls and plates together or plates and cups together, etc., as it is obvious that they don't match. Considering it may have been a glitch in the one box, I opened the second set and noted the exact same pieces were mismatched. I promptly returned both sets. This being the only good thing about the experience, Overstock was amazing at assisting this process go as smoothly as possible. Thanks Overstock!Read More

Two large boxes arrived-removed plates, bowls quite impressed until I got the desert plates- each plate with scratches on the surface of the ceramic impossible to keep- bought two set and each set had the same flaws returning with great disappointment- quite cautious about request return items as others had commented on similar flaws with color of the glaze- which I noticed as well but could live with that finish as it made the bowls look interesting. Will return borh set quite disappointed.Read More
We ordered two sets of these dishes, they arrived quickly, and were packed well. Upon opening the first box I noticed a few discrepancies from the picture. 1. The inside of the mugs, and the smaller bowls were a blue/black cooler. 2 The rims were not so much of a metallic/pewter, as others had described. 3. The larger bowl didn't have the accent color on the outside as shown in the photo. It just had the shiny glaze. 4. The glaze on all other dishes was more of a brown/black. 5 One of the mug handles was broken, and a few of the plates were scratched. We were still happy enough even with these problems, but then we opened the second box, and some of the plates were a blue/black, and some were brown/black. The glazing looked cheap, incomplete, and unprofessional on a few of these plates. We called overstock immediately, and they are sending two more boxes for us to pick through. We haven't used any of them yet. At this point, just hoping for the best.Read More
I can't say enough good things about this set of dishes. They are substantial and beautiful. The dinner plates and luncheon plates are the perfect size - not too big or small. I like the little bit of detail on the rim of the plates. It gives them the look of a more expensive set. The number of pieces you get for this price is unbelievable. It's not unusual to pay this amount for a 4-place setting set of dishes. Additionally, I especially like the fact that it comes with 2 different size bowls. This is such a functionally useful set that it allowed me to eliminate my old everyday dishes and a bunch of mismatched smaller bowls that I kept to use instead of the large salad bowls my last set had. Love it and seriously thinking about buying a 2nd set.Read More
These dishes arrived with a broken mug. The gave me a $$$ in store credit. I washed them in the dishwasher and the paint around the rim started to fade. When I took them out of the dishwasher they had water stains all over them. I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I had to re-package them back up and drive them to the UPS store which is about 8 miles from where I live and sent them back. Overstock.com took back the $$$ in store credit. Who was inconvenienced here. Again, I wouldn't recommend them to anyone. I'm very disappointed.Read More
These dishes are terrible. We ordered two sets of these dishes. We took the first ones out of the boxes and there were chips all over the plates. We washed them and the color faded and made them look dirty. We did not open the other box, we sent them back and just threw away the box that we opened.Read More
These dishes were exactly what I wanted. The set is huge! It comes with everything I will ever need, and looks great set out on the table. It has a unique contemporary look that I am very pleased with. The only negative is we have the wipe them down after washing in the dishwasher because the water spots show on the dark dished. I think that would be the same with any black dish set though. Love them!Read More
I received these dishes super quick, none were broken. Rims are more silver than black, looks good. Downfall is that the rims hold fingerprints, water stains. You must really wipe the rims dry thoroughly and then they are fine. Decent buy, nice size bowls and plates.Read More
I love this set! The grey/silver is so eye catching and blends well with our decor and personal level of taste: simple yet attractive. 1st downfall: the stoneware is not as heavy or thick as I would like it to be. But you do get what you pay for and this was an outstanding deal! 2nd downfall: the grey/silver trim accent holds onto fingerprints etc even when your hands are clean. It weird and hard to explain but we have gotten used to it. With these two combined "downfalls", I gave it a 4 star rating, but maybe more of a 4 1/2 rating, because I really do love this set!Read More

How to Tell If Something Is Microwave Safe
Many bowls and plates are considered microwave safe; however, if you use the wrong dish, you could ruin both the dinnerware and the dinner. Microwaves are convenient appliances, but there are a few precautions you should know about when it comes to your dishes. Always check to see if a dish is microwave safe before using it in the microwave. Some containers can break, melt or scald you. Some containers can also damage your microwave, such as foil-lined containers. Microwave-safe dishes can be used to both cook and store food. Non-microwave safe containers can only be used for storage or serving.
