I have owned these dishes for 5 months now and I hate them... I can't believe how terrible they are. I should have returned them when I first got them because 2 of the cups broke, then when I called Overstock and they sent me relacements, those too were broken. Finally on the third attempt and several reams of bubble wrap were they able to get them to me in one piece. These dishes are more fragile then dishware I've gotten at the dollar store and are not worth the nearly $$$ they are asking. They claim to be made dishwasher safe, but when you put them in the dish washer the paint comes off, I even had a bowl chip away. So we started washing them all by hand, yesterday I was washing a cup and the handle broke off while I was cleaning it. I wouldn't recommend using them in the microwave either because the microwave cooks the plate and not the food, so when you pull it out, the plate burns your hand but your food is still cold. I paid $$$ for my last set, which was genuine stoneware, I could even put them in the oven up to 450 degrees. If these were cheaper, I would only recommend these for decorative use.
