Bought this set in July 2014, It says that it is microwavable safe as well as dishwasher save. However a plate cracked right down the middle after coming out of the microwave. Don't too happy about that, as we are now short a plate for our set which makes for inconvenience when having guest over!
I bought 2 sets and when they arrived a bowl and salad plate were broken. I called customer service and they were extremely helpful. They just asked a few questions and I received the replacements within 10 days. I didn't have to mail the broken pieces back to them; it was great. I like the neutral color of this set; it's perfect for everyday. The bowls are a little bigger than I thought they would be; but as long as they fit in the dishwasher it really doesn't matter that much to me.
