Rated 5 out of 5Â by CoachMom Old World meets New World
I love Mikasa's Black Swirl dishes! I say they're "old world meets new world" because the black matte swirl finish on the outside has a potter's artistry look to it, like it is fresh off the potter's wheel, but the black gloss finish inside gives it that new world modern look. This versatility in styling allows it to compliment any kitchen's decor, modern or classic.

My daughter and son-in-laws 2 place settings for Christmas will be a great present for them. They love these dishes and use them all the time for everyday and for fancy dinners. Great quality......
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MeeTwo steak knives scratch the black plates.
Great and effective with the white pattern, however be careful when using steak knives on the black. It tends to scratch.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by finndy Beautiful set - but HUGE dinner plates
I was looking for an attractive, durable, every-day dinner set. I fell totally in love with Mikasa Swirl in white. It is a beautiful set - very pretty, lovely off-white color, feels sturdy, nice shapes in the mug and bowl. LOVE IT. I brought one place setting home to try it out, along with a handful of other brands / styles. No question - Mikasa Swirl was the winner. The dinner plate looked big, so my husband tested it in our kitchen cabinet to make sure it fits - and somewhow we thought it did fit. I ordered 8 place settings and 2 extra dinner plates and side plates. So, the set arrives and I'm so excited to get rid of the old stuff and install Swirl. I unpack the first box, stack it up in the cabinet and....... the doors won't close fully :( The dinner plate is about half an inch too big on the diameter. I am devastated - they have to go back. We also put it in the dishwasher to see if it would fit. We didn't actually do a wash, but it looked like the dinner plate would block the spinning spray arm. I'm giving this set 5 stars and a "Recommend" status because it's just wonderful. Please do make sure it fits your cabinets and your dishwasher before you buy lots of place settings though!
From what I've seen I don't think I will find anything that lives up to this set.... so so so so sad.
