I have had the matching bee goblets from the same company for years, and exclusively used the dishwasher to clean them. I don't know whether they've changed their manufacturing or whether plates and bowls are just weaker, but I already have chips along the edges. Overstock has good customer service, and they replaced some of the bowls for me (bad manufacturing - streaky 'bees') and refunded me for the plates. I think they're pretty and classic, so they're still worth it. If you get them, be sure to hand wash them.
