Rated 5 out of 5Â by Anji beautiful, modern and elegant for everyday use
I have had a set of the blue and a set of the orange serve ware for four years now. I do not have one chip on my plates. We use everyday and these are the only plates/bowls I have, so they get good use. We put them in the dishwasher, they all fit, however, the large dinner plates, I do have to set my upper dishwasher rack to the highest level, so they will fit. A couple of times, I've hit them accidentally, quite hard on my quartz counter, and still no chip or break. Love them, they are modern and beautiful for everyday use.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Weezy Chip Easily
I have had these dishes for 2 years. We are a family of 6 and use them daily. All the pieces are getting little chips in them, and a little chip out of the blue which shows up as white where the blue chips off is really visible. I am really disappointed. I bought a huge amount of these dishes since we have a large extended family and wanted to use them for when large groups of relatives get together but now so many have chips. I don't think we are especially rough on them but you really have to handle them with lots of TLC which is not practical for everyday use with teens. I would not have bought them if I knew they chipped so easily.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Beth This product chips, scratches and breaks easily
Due to Noritake's reputation and my prior experience with it (our fine china is Noritake "Coleman") we chose Noritake for our everyday wear. We have been extremely disappointed with the quality of this Colorwave Blue pattern. It shows scratches and many pieces have chipped. Even a few pieces have broken! Only my husband and I use this dinnerware, so it is not as if children are being careless with it. I am very grateful for the opportunity to be able to express to you my dissatisfaction with the product and would welcome your response. I would hope you would replace the broken and chipped pieces. It would be impossible to replace all the scratched pieces as that would be the entire dinnerware.

These dishes are really nice looking. The color is nice, and we get compliments on them all the time. They are a good weight - sturdy but not too heavy.
I ultimately wish I had chosen something else, though, for a few reasons. First of all, they chip fairly easily. We got place settings for 12 for our wedding a year and a half ago and we already have 3 or 4 chips. Also, the large dinner plates WILL NOT fit in a dishwasher. We have had three different dishwashers since getting these dishes, and we've tried every possible method of loading them. No matter what we do, they tip and fall on top of each other, which I'm worried will cause more chips. We end up mostly using the small plates instead of the large ones, and we hand wash the large plates when we do use them. Hand washing is not a huge deal when it's just two of us eating, but if we have company, hand washing twelve plates because they fall over on top of each other in the dishwasher is going to get old really fast.
