Beautiful and sturdy I've had these plates for over two years now, and almost all of them have survived. I'm very clumsy and I drop things often. I've dropped one of the large plates onto the carpet while walking and it was perfectly fine. I've dropped on on the tile, and it shattered (large chunk with little splinter fragments if you care to know). However, I have dropped them onto the counter from the cabinet directly above, and they were in one piece - the bowls however have chipped on the edges from that. They have cracks from the chips, but its only in the glaze and not the plate so they are still useable. The chips have not grown or flaked at all, and the cracks have not gotten worse with use over a year. I use them very often in the microwave for anywhere from 1-5 minutes on high and I have never had an issue with them. They do however heat up to be very hot, and faster than the food most times as they are stoneware. I've put them in the oven before on low(200-250) to warm them, and they also don't have any issues there. They are large, and very beautiful. They aren't just cream and white, but the border seems to have a beige to green color where the glazes meet. After regular use with my flatware and steak knives they don't have any real scratches, little scrapes but nothing noticeable unless you hold them in the light. The dinner plates are the only ones that still feel heavy, but they all do have weight to them. I would say these are definitely worth it! March 6, 2013
My boyfriend had two sets of these already and I liked them. After we got married decided to keep his set and order more to have enough for our combine family. I almost returned them. I still like them but was dissappointed that they are bigger then the old sets we already have. The plates are so big they will not fit in the dish washer. I don't see why they changed anything about them using the same color and model number, but ol well, we are keeping them. I just dont need a dishwasher anymore. lol But that is why I only gave it an average rating. If they had been the same size I would have given it 5 stars. November 10, 2012
Just Ok I received this set of dishes off of my registry for a bridal shower gift. The color of the dishes are really nice. Something to consider is looking at the size of how big items really are. The plates are huge! Most of the time we use the smaller plates for dinner. They are a little heavier than I would have liked, but so far they seem sturdy and I haven't had any scratch or chip. We have been using them about a month. September 19, 2012
Never again! I purchased 3 boxes of these dishes and they are NOT microwave safe. The bowls and plates have cracks in them. The handles on the cups are cracked and break off while holding the cup in your hands. I will never ever buy from the Sango company again. What a mistake I made. I cannot believe Bed Bath & Beyond would sell this product to it's customers. I only gave it a star because I had to post this review. July 25, 2012
