I am VERY particular about dishes so I had spent hour combing the internet for dishes that would be the right size to fit in my cabinet. (The cabinet depth was only 12 inches so often dinner plates are too big and then the door will not close completely) I was also looking for plates that were colorful but not all the same. These dishes were all of that and more. They were not too heavy like some and being dishwasher and microwave safe were ideal. But what I was most happy with was the finish on the plate. Many plates can be "gritty" feeling, as if they were not glazed enough. These were smooth and not cheap feeling. They are so pretty and mix so well with all of the other pieces in the collection without being matchy matchy!!
I love that the set of these plates, as well as the other items in this design, are kind of mix & match. I have a lot of bright colors in my home and the kitchen is no exception. The colors and design are so happy and feel like a fiesta. My ONLY complaint with these dishes (and others I've had) is that they do chip rather easily. The clay used is a little less dense than porcelain or some stoneware, so be very careful loading and unloading in dishwasher; I occasionally bumo the edge of my granite countertops while loading and that will do it!
I am a separated man, who finally got to pick the plates I find interesting. The plates are very pleasing and are dishwasher safe. They seem strong and durable.
