Rated 3 out of 5Â by Wendy Love them but Pattern Disappeared
Love the pattern and use the dishes everyday. They are advertised dishwasher safe. They clean well in the dishwasher but unfortunately the pattern has almost completely faded. We have had the dishes for 5-6 years and the pattern has been fading over the years until, as I said, the pattern is virtually gone. We query whether the dishwasher is responsible for the fading and whether it is a better idea to wash them by hand. In any event, we will get more BUT we will not get ones with a pattern. With only two of us using them, most of the time, we felt it was necessary to give a heads. Maybe this was an anomaly but I would rather be safe than sorry.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Dayna Nice pattern, some printing issues
These plates are typical Corelle: very sturdy and lightweight. The design is beautiful, however the printing quality was inconsistent. Some large plates were bold, while some were lighter in color. Three of four of the small plates were not only light, but the grey and red didn't line up. I contacted World Kitchen to tell them about the 3 small plates. I was very promptly sent 3 more small plates and the design was very bold and clear. I am very happy with World Kitchen's customer service, but Corelle needs to work on its quality control. The color quality and consistency of the dishes in the sets needs to be up to the standards of the individually sold pieces.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by coolidge Only one small fault
love these plates - they are attractive and durable. In particular, the cups and bowls are good, practical sizes. My one complaint is that the black stripes are a different finish and rougher texture from the rest of the plate. Occasionally when a fork scrapes across one, we all get spine-tingles! If you are sensitive to this, you probably want to choose a different style. But I do highly recommend Corelle in general. My 5-yr-old cannot seem to destroy them (and he does try).
Rated 4 out of 5Â by iupbrat Slightly disappointed
Product is of a true Corelle quality. Love the pattern and style it represents. Bowls are deeper than the standard sets due to the shape and sloping. Dinner plates are enormous in size as are the salad plates. Dinner plates are so big, we use the salad plates instead. Dinner plates are a great size for meats and large items. If your setting for 4 the dinner plates take up a lot of space, and take some time to get used to. I'm guessing because they are new, they slide around as your cutting meats etc... Cups are thick and unique in their shape. Exterior shape is squared while the interiors are round. Because of depth and size two sets will not fit into a normal horizontal rack. You will need a custom made rack. One set fits, but bowls are still difficult to get in and out of a rack.
