I appreciate the honest customer reviews regarding the care of this product, because the product description says the exact opposite. So far I have hand-washed them and they have held up well. I rinse them in warm water, scrub, rinse and hand dry them within minutes. I haven't noticed any cracks, chips or bubbles, but will pay closer attention to that from now on. I purchased a few pieces in this line as cat food and water bowls. I wish that they had a dessert plates and a wider mouth Sundae/mint cup in this line. I discovered that my cats prefer eating off of saucers which are low to the ground and wider openings for their whiskers. But they will eat out of the bowl too and drink out of the Sundae cups. These are so pretty in the turquoise that I was considering buying more of the Sundae cups for entertaining, when they get less than $2 each. It looks like these were overpriced, considering their inability to hold up to practical washing. Thank you Walmart, for posting the negative reviews. I love my dishes and want to keep them around awhile, especially since this is probably going to be a discontinued item.
