I am overall amazed with timely delivery you made .Pleased with the packing, still i received two items in damaged condition . This order was basically to check the extent with which a fragile goods will be received.
We bought these from a store when we first got married. The dishes are hit or miss as far as microwaveable. Some of them heat up dangerously hot but do not heat the food. They are fairly durable - after 5 years of very regular use, only 2 have chips.
HOWEVER: these dishes began emitting a very strong and horrible smell after dishwashing or heating in the microwave. It began rather suddenly, when I opened a just finished, still-hot dishwasher and horrible smell came out - a bit like something dead mixed with sewage. On closer investigation, the smell came from some of the plates. I thought it was a freak incident until it happened AGAIN, next go around in the dishwasher.
Also: when microwaving, if you happen to get the one that is NOT microwave safe, strange bubbles come from hairline cracks in the glazing, and a strange odor comes out and WILL TAINT THE FOOD. I have concluded these dishes are not even safe to eat off of and am throwing them all away.
I gave this set as a housewarming gift. It was sent out of state so I really can't answer any questions regarding the color, quality,
or accuracy of the description. However, the person I sent it to called me immediately upon receiving and was so happy with the gift. The gift was extremely well received
I absolutely enjoy my new set that I've recently purchase from overstock.com. Dishes look very nice and elegant on the table, I love clean, simple lines and soft fading of colors. I love holding my mug with both hands, as I sip my morning cup of freshly brewed coffee - it transfers the heat and warms my hands perfectly, which is a huge plus for me, but maybe be a drawback for someone else. I also like the weight of the dinner plates - not too light, not too heavy, very easy to handle ( a huge compliment from a former Corelle lover). And last but not the least - very impressive packaging and wrapping.
