Rated 1 out of 5Â by Ejself Saucer has huge flaw
The saucer for this place setting has a huge chuck of some foreign material under the glaze. It is very obvious and disfiguring.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by KitchenArtist Silverware Marks Are Easy to Remove from Fiesta
I hope that people who have complained about silverware marks on Fiesta will see this post, and their comments will not deter others from choosing Fiesta.
Metal marks happen because the Fiesta glaze is a harder surface than silverware. Bar Keepers Friend is a liquid cleaner (available at grocery stores) that will easily remove metal marks.
The dishes are dusty from being sanded on the bottom as the last step in making them. Manufacturing is a dusty process!
Some Fiesta pieces have an ink stamp applied before firing which includes a code with the date it was made. Other pieces have the Fiesta logo molded into the bottom. The method used depends on how the piece is made: whether pressed, spun out, or cast in a mold.
Fiesta is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, with generations of American employees crafting their colorful ware!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by IAmCuriousJust Fiestaware is the best.
I already have the plum setting and I bought the cobalt to mix and match. It is a very beautiful blue.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Gbras Inconsistent quality control, but nice style
This set of fiesta ware had white marks/flecks/imperfections in the color finish of three pieces. It also had a cheap looking ink brand stamp on the bottom of several pieces rather than the imprint in the bottom of the piece. The dinnerware shows up very dusty in the package. For all sets I have purchased I have had to sort through boxes and boxes at the store to find the best (usually not perfect) finish. In addition, over time the orange, yellow, light blue, and lime green colors all show silverware marks on the finish that do not come off. There is poor quality control for this product. One positive are the nice colors and style.
