First, I do love these dishes because of the pattern but any consumer must know that they will not last long because they are EARTHENWARE not stoneware. Earthenware is less strong, less tough and more porous than stoneware. They chip very easily and continually. You can't let them sit in water because the bottoms are porous and in the microwave they are much hotter than other types of dishes. A lot of drawbacks and I would not recommend these dishes. If they ever have the pattern in stoneware I'd buy them in a second. I still use mine but will probably go to something else when they have to many chips to use.
