I have been very impressed with these dishes. They arrived quick and unbroken. The outer color is a beautiful metallic gray and the inside is a inviting cream color. They do show fingerprints but I really dont mind that. The dinner plates and salad plates are a good size and the icecream bowls are perfect for my children's cereal in the morning. We love the larger bowls for pasta and such. They are holding up well in the dishwasher and microwave. Over all I am very pleased with these dishes. They are beautiful and at a good price. Thanks Overstock!
This is a great little set to jumpstart your kitchen. Plates are heavy and durable, mugs are wide enough that they are easy to clean, and dont get overly hot to the touch if you put them in the microwave (a problem with a lit of stoneware and ceramics). I have no compaints about this set, it was just what I needed for my new place.

What an amazing deal for what you get! I looked at similar sets at crate and barrel for SO much more.... The plates are a great size, and the two sizes of bowls are a great bonus. They look beautiful, and hold up well in the dishwasher and in the microwave. Yes, the fingerprint issue is true, but it does not bother us that much. It wipes off with a chamois, no problem!

The dark edge has an almost pewter color to it. I love the little bit of shine it brings a bit of fancy to every meal. I really love how sturdy the dishes feel and they stand up great to the dishwasher and microwave. So happy I purchased this set.

I bought this set of dishes for my son after reading the many overall positive reviews. We both liked the clean lines and style of the dishes. Unfortunately, the set he got has many of the features that the negative reviews share. The bowls that came with the set had significant pitting in the glaze and the bottom of the bowls had asymmetric divots (not intentional). I contacted Overstock support staff and they were super (5 star service!) and sent a new set of dishes to replace the defective ones. The new bowls were of a better quality and we thought the problem was solved. Unfortunately, over time more flaws became apparent. Like other reviewers, my son found that when he washes the dishes in the dishwasher, any part of the dinnerware that touches the rack, becomes discolored and stays discolored. There is less discoloration if you hand wash the dishes; however, all of the colored surfaces are prone to unsightly spotting where your hand touches them. There must be a flaw with the glaze. He is now sorry that he didn't return the whole set for a refund when he had the opportunity. For a company like Sango, the poor quality of this dinnerware is not acceptable. Do not buy.
love the color and the rim change colors depends what kind of placement you put on the table

I loved the plates up until theyou started chipping. I've only had them for a few monthe and 6 of the 40 pieces have large chunks missing from the lips of the bowls, and mugs. If you buy these make sure you're not using them as everyday plates because they will break quickly. The sad part is, I am very delicate with them when I do use them.
This is a pretty classy little set of dishes. We bought these as we were moving into our first apartment together. They have held up quite nicely over the last 3 years or so, The weight of them is very nice and I really like how there is some visual drama to keep them from being too plain, but, they definitely aren't out there either. Just the right balance. The dark part though - be aware - is a weird texture/color and sometimes holds smudges or marks easily. But, we haven't had a problem yet. They have held up quite well so far and I don't think we have managed to break one yet! - knock on wood!! haha. I wish they were slightly more cream/gray and less beige, but, then again I'm a pretty heavy beige hater. I highly, highly recommend this set for anyone wanting a starter set that isn't too plain with some extra oomph. They've done us well!
