Rated 1 out of 5Â by kccollinz Uninspiring
I purchased the bowl online. Obviously I liked it enough to make the purchase; however, I was very disappointed when it arrived. First and foremost its really small! I had intended to use it for fruit, more than 2-3 apples OR 2 oranges. The details given for the sizing state: 9 1/2"L x 9 1/2"W and it is 6 3/4"L x 6 3/4"W...big difference. Makes it useless for anything more than an individual bowl.
The bowl itself is a little uninspiring. It is a descent weight, but looks like any simple stoneware bowl, not the quality I expected from Mikasa. When placed on the counter the sweeping lines that give the bowl it's personality were hardly noticeable. It is just meh. I probably would have saved myself the hassle of a return if it the bowl had been the size it was listed as, but as is it is useless to me.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by karen11 scratches very easily
I like the look of the product, however, I would not have bought any of the pieces had I known ahead of time how easily they would scratch. My dinnerware is only a few weeks old, and already the plates and everything else is scratched. You cannot cut your meat without scratching your plate. If you stack the pieces, they scratch each other. I am extremely disappointed in the finish of these pieces and am sorry that I purchased them.
