Mikasa® Gourmet Basics Red Berries 16-Piece Dinnerware Set
I absolutely love these dishes. I have two sets and would suggest these to anyone looking for good porcelain dishes. The service at Bed Bath and Beyond is always great.

I got three sets of this set for my bridal shower, and i am very satisfied. The plates are very sturdy and nicely designed. Very good for everyday use.

Mikasa red berries w/white backdrop
I love these dishes. I use them for my everyday dishes and they look lovely on the table at the holidays. They are Mikasa and feel delicate, but they hold up to the dishwasher and some everyday rushing around putting them in the sink and back in the cabinet. Great price and beautiful dishes. They are exactly as pictured.
My one complaint, in shipment I suppose, one of the dinner plates was broken. No time to pack everything up and return it so I was one short on the table for the holiday. I wasn't happy about that. I needed that service for 12.

So beautiful, but broken!
I was so excited to get the red-berries dinnerware set that I requested two sets for my bridal registry. They are so cute! I got both sets for my bridal shower, both guests had them shipped via UPS to my house. I received the first set, only to find that 3 of the 4 dinner plates were broken in half! They were also chipped on the edges. They are very thin plates.
Then, a week later, another set arrived and AGAIN, the dinner plates were completely broken! I was so shocked! How could this happen twice?
These dishes are cute and sweet, but I will obviously have to return them & won't be getting two other sets because they are obviously very prone to breakage. I'm so disappointed because I really love the look of them. Will be searching for a new pattern soon. If you do purchase these, I definitely recommend that you buy them at the store, do not have them shipped, and investigate all pieces for breakage before you leave the store. I'm so surprised that none of the other reviewers have had breakage or chipping when I had both before I could even get them out of the box!

The dishes are pretty, and the china is thin but not fragile. The mugs hold 10 oz. of coffee easily and your hand wraps easily around them. Not heavy like some dishes. Bought 2 sets - ordered in store, and they delivered to home. They arrived safe and sound and very quickly.

I have purchased my first set about 7 months ago, and have been using them non-stop. Dishwasher save, does not get too hot in microwave. I have not had any chips, scratches or imperfections due to use. Have not broken any plates yet either. Just purchased my 2nd set since I like it so much.
The design works great for every day, but can make it more "holiday" with the right place mat, or even vday look with a red napkin. Pretty much works for any time. I recommend this set.

These dishes are beautiful. I have had three sets for the past 4 years and just recently replaced broken settings. The breaking was due to rough use by teenage boys not being delicate. These dishes hold up well in the dishwasher, microwave and under everyday use do not be afraid to purchase them. I love them!
