I read a lot of reviews complaining about the color not being true to the image. Mine are only slightly darker than pictured- as a matter of fact- I'm a photographer and in my opinion it's not so much a difference in color between picture and actual product as I believe it's a difference between home lighting and photography studio lighting. The color is gorgeous. It's a true red (not too pink, too orange, or too blue). They fit in my cabinets.
They fit in my dishwasher.
They microwave just fine.
It even says they can go in the oven (but I've never been a fan of any glass in the oven, much less my plates). They seem to be of a standard modern mid-priced stoneware thickness and durability. Sure, the glaze might have a minor dimple here and there, but that's not a flaw in the product, that's just a standard occurrence with mid-priced stoneware glaze. If you want flawless- don't buy stoneware and don't buy the low priced plates. I haven't had mine long enough to really get into the durability issue, but I will say that they seem as heavy and sturdy as my other stoneware- and have held up to the few meals I've had on them thus far (involving fork cutting as well as steak knife cutting) with no scratches appearing. Coffee cups seem to be a little bit smaller than what I like, but I live in Seattle, so I drink coffee out of a virtual bucket. The bowls are gigantic! I LOVE that! They're so pretty that I regret having to put them in the cabinet. I want them out where I can see them. We bought the double 32 piece set. The price was outstanding. My only problem was the Site to Store Shipping. It was delayed in transit twice and took 1.5 weeks beyond the latest ship date at purchase to arrive. However, they did arrive- and they were so securely packed that not a dish was broken or chipped. Overall, for the price, the look, and the weight, I'd say they were worth twice the price. If you need something that's got a bit of flash but doesn't cost a lot- these are the dishes for you.
