Noritake® Colorwave Coupe Dinnerware Dinner Plate in Cream
Love them, but one issue...
These dishes are beautiful and will go with everything.
My only complaint would be that the large plates have too much of an upward curve so that they do not fit well into the dishwasher. They need to have a space between each plate so you can wash half the amount of regular round dishes or the smaller square plates which fit fine.
I haven't noticed any scratches yet as they are new but my Pfaltzgraff dishes are a mess with scratches. If it becomes a problem I will switch from 18/10 to 18/0 flatware.

We purchased a set of Noritake Colorwave dishes a few years ago and use them every day. We bought them because we liked the color and design. However, I'm very unsatisfied with the dark scratches that are constantly appearing on the shiny part of the surface. I use Bar Keeper's Friend to polish the dishes periodically and also whenever we're having guests. What a pain! I've never had this problem with other dishes that we've owned over the years. I resent having to keep polishing off the scratches to keep them looking nice. I read Noritake's response to other comments reguarding the scratches being due to several causes but I own other types of dishes and the scratches don't occur on them. As for me, I feel as though I'm stuck with beautiful but very impractical dishes.

This brand of stoneware is fantastic!
I love my Noritake Colorwave Cream stoneware! It has been very durable and it is a perfect background for the food we serve. I hope that you alway carry this color and pattern.

HAS GREAT FEATURES, BUT ....
I LOVE THE DISHES, BUT THE PLATES SCRATCH VERY EASILY FROM THE USE OF CUTLERY. I CALE DAND COMPLAINED WHEN THE DISHES WERE NEW, GOT REPLACEMENTS, BUT THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO THESE PLATES, JUST FIGURE I I HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT.

I love this stoneware pattern. It is great for everyday and elegant for any special occasion. I have dropped them and they did not break. They can go in the dishwasher. I like having a mug rather than a cup and saucer. With the cream color I can use it for every holiday and special occasion. The color looks great with just about every accent colors I choose.

NORITAKE COLOR WAVE
My husband and I wished for this product on our wedding registry 1.6 years ago and we are so glad we did. We love our Noritake dishes! They are hard to break -not that we are trying- and hold up well to every day use such as the occasional drop of a plate to the use of a dishwasher. They can be placed in the oven and do not stain when sauces are placed in them. The one thing I don't like is that saran wrap does not stick to the bowls or the plates. This is my only problem with the dishes-it would make storing leftovers much easier if saran wrap could be placed on the dishes and remain there. I have found using a large rubber band helps in securing saran wrap but it would be much easier if it would just stick to it. Other than that, it is beautiful, holds up well for every day use and my husband and I are so glad that we received this wonderful gift for our wedding!

We are very pleased with our colorwave items. We got it to use as our everyday-dining and have utilized just about every piece. It's practical. And I don't think it will begin to look dated as a lot of dining ware does. It's simple and sleek and I plan to have it for years!
