I bought two of these for a large dinner party after I looked to adding to my existing, trusty D***y branded dishes.
Here is a list of pros and cons:
1. Lovely design
2. Sizing is perfect for all dishes (very generous dinner plate size)
3. Good quantity in box
4. Good shipping packaging
1. Must hand-wash as they can't be washed in your normal Finish tabs (contains chems that will break down paint)
2. Bottom of dishes can scratch counters, hard tables because they are not sanded to the level other dishes. This is the saddest part.
I really wanted to like these and it was such a good buy, but on the other hand, the disappointments are weighty, so I recommend buying with caution. If you like hand-washing and have wooden counters and tables that you don't mind scratching, these are a great buy! I have German ("virtually scratch-proof") kitchen counters that were scratched by them and so I am a bit sad about the purchase. All I did was push it a bit across the counter, as I always did with my other dishes. I am very careful with everything but not enough for this set.
