Been using for 7 years!
October 03, 2017
We got a set of these dishes for our wedding 7 years ago and they are still going strong. We use them every single day and put them through the dishwasher. Other than a few grey marks on the plates from silverware, they have held up beautifully and still look brand new. I came to Macys.com to see if they still made this pattern because a few pieces have been broken and I was hoping to replace them. I'm happy to see the pattern is still around 7 years later!
Yes, I recommend this product.
White Dinnerware from Martha Steward
May 05, 2017
I love the product design etc, but after two years my plates have terrible black marks on them from silverware. Very disappointed, I can't use some of the plates when we have company.
Have held up well for 5 years!
May 20, 2015
I received the plates, bowls, platter, butter dish and creamer and sugar bowl as wedding gifts back in 2010. We use them every day. They have held up exceedingly well to the daily use, the dishwasher, two moves, and my ungentle She-Hulk hands that have crushed lesser dishes. We broke one bowl but that was from dropping a heavier dish on it in the sink. The platter broke as well, but again, it was my smashy hands' fault (accidentally swung it into the corner of the countertop) and it managed to hold together for a few more uses and washes before it broke in two.
Their looks are very classic, a nice clean white that isn't grayish or yellow, and pair well with any decor or seasonal theme. They are a good weight as well--thin enough to be elegant, but substantial and not easily broken.
The only drawback (which could also be a plus) is that they are somewhat larger than the average dinner plate. I liked that about them, but it can be tricky to fit them into some standard kitchen cupboards!
I am very happy with this set and would definitely buy more pieces from the collection.
Poor quality - easily chips
January 01, 2015
I bought 16 table settings of Kensington because I liked the style and color. However, it chips VERY easily and the plates and bowls have many chips. Very disappointed with the quality. I expected high quality and durability from Martha Stewart.
Best Purchase ever!

I purchase a set of Martha Stewart dishes about 5 years ago. I absolutely love these dishes. I can see wear there is a slight indication of wear and tear, but not bad for as much as I use them. I also have several backing dishes and love them as well. What is so nice about these dishes is if a piece breaks, I can easily replace it so I always have a complete set and I can always add onto it at a later date. My daughter loved these dishes so much that when she moved out, I bought her a set. I would recommend this set to anyone out there who is looking for a beautiful sleek but durable table setting.

Big, Durable and classy

I love these dishes. I've owned them for 5 years and they still look great. I don't grow tired of the white--it goes with everything. My two complaints: the dinner plate is so big it doesn't fit in the cabinets all that well and prevents other dishes from getting clean in the dishwasher so we hand wash the big plates. I wish the mugs were a little narrower, as coffee/tea cools quickly with such a large opening. But I love the look of these dishes and the way they've maintained over years of every day use.
Replacement/add-ons not identical
February 22, 2014
The good news - the set looks great and nice clean design. Bad news - I ordered two additional pieces/sets and the large plates are not even close to being the same size. Plates were almost 1/2" LARGER!! Second, the coffee mugs were "can" shaped and clearly not a match for my existed rounded mugs in the original set.
