My Sango-Vertigo black 40pc arrived today! The outer box was really damaged so I was sure I would find at least a couple of broken pieces. To my surprise, the inner packaging was so protective there was not even a chipped plate. Thanks Overstock! I ordered these to coordinate with my newly redecorated kitchen and everyday use. I was extremely happy to see that the colors were exactly as pictured. And are heavy enough not to break under my family's daily handling.
My husband and I shopped for new dinnerware extensively both in stores and online. This pattern is one we both like and the price for 8 place settings was excellent. The packing was the best of all, because based on the condition of the outer box when it arrived, I fully expected significant breakage. Instead, every piece was perfect.
This set is great!! The dinner plates are huge, you have so much room on them. The ice cream sized bowls come in handy for everything, and the soup bowls are even big enough to use as a serving bowl. The packaging was very well done, not a broken piece anywhere. Would highly recommend this set.
Excellent quality at a great price. Very happy! Dishes are sturdy & wash well in the dishwasher. Love that they're microwaveable & that they don't get super hot when you take them out of the microwave. Pattern is just like in picture & they look good in the cupboard!
Overstock shipped amazingly fast. The packaging was incredible. I accidentally sent this to my work address - what a shock to see the HUGE box waiting for me! It was all good - my mistake, but don't believe it isn't a HUGE shipment. Great products and super value for the money!
This dinnerware arrived in excellent shape. The outer box was damaged in several places, but the dishes were packed so well (an interior box with 2 layers of bubble wrap and cardboard separating each item) that there was no damage in shipping. I had been skeptical of ordering dinnerware on line, but the price was so good I decided to give it a try. I am quite happy with my purchase.
I was thrilled to see how happy my wife was with our new dinnerware. The plates are an excellent size, the bowls are deep, the cups are 12 ounce which is awesome. I was so happy that every piece was in perfect shape when they arrived, the packaging was top notch. I was also happy that this 40 piece (8 place settings) was a better buy that many (most) of the 32 piece settings.
Eight place setting combined from normal four saves money. Two bowl sizes nice extra choice in cupboard. Larger bowl holds a larger can of soup with room to spare for no spills. Dinner plates are huge for loading up and food not touching if you like it that way like myself! This is a pottery set and not too heavy for most. But smaller hands, arthritis, etc might need some help getting a loaded plate to the table. Colors are rich without being brash. A few sporatic, tiny blemishes in the glaze process adds to the authentic rustic feel of this set. Heats a cup of coffee the way you would expect in a microwave (30-60 secs), unlike ceramics. Pottery only hot from food, no hot spots in pottery itself from microwave use. Just used this set for Thanksgiving and was complimented on the set.
One thing I loved about this set is the style. Another thing I enjoy is there is enough plates and bowls in this set to feed my family of 5 without having to buy 2 separate sets. It was a good experience. Only complain is the large plates don't fit in My dishwasher but overall still very happy. .
