Rated 4 out of 5Â by LMDishes Satisfied but...
I have a set of 12 in the color wave blue. The other reviewers who complained about the plates not fitting in the dishwasher mirror my own experience. They do not stack well in the dishwasher given their size. They do tip over. However, I have had no problems with them chipping at all.
But the coffee cups stain and require special hand scrubbing to get the discoloration out. Also, the plates need to be scrubbed as well since they show crazing marks from the cutlery after continued use. Disappointed about that.
In general, I like the plates and have no regrets.
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 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 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.
