I was concerned about the quality after reading some of the reviews, but I am more than pleasantly surprised at the durability of these dishes. The color in real life is spot on to the color on the computer as well. We have been using the dishes for about three weeks and there have been no chips, cracks, staining, or any other defects. I have used the plates in the microwave and dishwasher with no problems. I contemplated getting a much more expensive dinnerware set from Overstock, but my husband talked me out of it due to the fact that we have small children and they will more than likely break a dish or two. I am glad I listened to him and am not disappointed in these dishes.
One dish did arrive broken, but I contacted Overstock via chat and they fixed the problem immediately. A new dish was sent and I received it three days later. Thank you Overstock for your prompt service and concern for my happiness!
These dishes are absolutely beautiful. They are the perfect balance between masculine and feminine, and they are neutral and earthy, suited to many different styles of kitchens. They are great in the microwave, but I am unsure about performance in the dishwasher, as I do not have one. If you are contemplating Sango Nova Avocado, go for it!
I read all the reviews before purchasing three sets of these dishes. Honestly, I chose them because I wanted 12 everyday place settings and the price was right. I've had them a month and they have not chipped with regular use. The only reason I rated them good for quality is because to me a china plate is "excellent" quality. There are a few minor flaws on the bottom side of about half a dozen pieces out of 74…normal ceramic type flaws (a couple of unglazed areas or a little nub which doesn't affect the proper balance of the dish ware)…so that's pretty good. I like the colors of this stoneware and it seems durable. I recommend purchasing this set.
We had already bought several sets of these dishes and bought these as a replacement set. We've had the original set for about six months and like them a lot -- although the handle cracked off of one of the mugs. I like the color and styling and they look great with our remodeled kitchen.
I was satisfied with the product (although one of the plates was broken) but not with delivery. The order was placed on December 16 for two sets of dinnerware. The first set was delivered in a timely fashion; however, the second set never showed up. After several emails, another set was shipped, which arrived Friday January 10, again, with a broken plate. So... not really impressed with Overstock.com.
It was very hard to find something earthy enough for me but plain for my partner. I ordered three 16-piece sets and 12 rice bowls. I loved them so much I ran to the store to grab the completed set. They all match and have a nice shine to them. Stacking the plates has not let to any ship or problems.
They are sturdy and earthy and do great in the dishwasher and microwave; I have not noticed any cracks. I also think the sugar bowl is perfect size. I have tea spoons and larger spoons (not serving spoons) and they both fit inside to serve sugar.
I was torn between the blue and the green (love the blue) but went with green. These are our casual dining dishes.
