Absolutely thrilled with the quality and look
December 16, 2016
I must have looked at every dish set before deciding on this set. I am so happy with this choice. The quality is fantastic. They're not too heavy, and just solid enough that I feel comfortable having my young family use them. I had read reviews that people were disappointed about how they fit together in the cupboard, but I have not experienced that at all. They stack very nicely. Great casual set.

I have had these less than a year and a number of the bowls and plates have gray marks on them from our flatware. And, just recently I got a salad plate out of the dishwasher to find a chip in it. We bought this set to replace white Target dishes that we got for a wedding gift 17 years ago. Took the Target dishes to the cabin. Sadly, our Target dishes look better after 18 years of use than our expensive set we have had for 11 months.
Beautiful and durable

We've had these dishes for almost three years now. They are beautiful and durable. No scratches, chips, or breaks.
Best Dish Set Ever

I purchased six place settings of Portmeirion Dinnerware, Sophie Conran White Collection. These dishes are so beautiful. I also purchased the medium sized salad bowl. I definitely recommend this collection - you can use it for casual dining or a sit down dinner. The dishes have a glimmer of pearl that makes them shine. I will be purchasing more to make it a eight piece place setting.
Yes, I recommend this product.
Definitely cannot recommend

I am so disappointed in these dishes. They became scratched within the first few uses from my flatware. I called Portmeirion and the only 'help' they could offer was to try different flatware (!!!) or scour them with a scrub like Bon Ami or Bar Keeper's Friend. Really?!?! I need to buy new flatware because your product is defective or hand scrub these dishes after each use? Well, I really liked these dishes and didn't love my current flatware so I purchased a new set of utensils. No improvement in the scratching. Another call made to Portmeiron, to tell them their suggestions did not work, resulted in being told that I should try to return them to Macy's. Due to the length of time I
had the dishes, the hassle to return them and not having all the packing materials, I chose not to return them.
The glossy finish is now worn off, in addition to having numerous grey 'scratches" in the center of the plates/bowls. They are an embarrassment.

I looked long and hard for new dinnerware until I found this Portmieron set. It 's elegant and simple, good for everyday use as well as for more formal occasions. I've got the white sets (12 of them!) and I am so happy with them. There is a lovely sheen to them that has not faded with washes so far. Each piece is light and precious in your hand. The slightly irregular borders make plates and bowl look almost handmade. I highly recommend them.
Most gorgeous everyday dinnerware!

I absolutely love this dinnerware. It's very long lasting, hard to chip or break, and easy to clean in the dishwasher. We have mostly white, with a few celadon pieces thrown in for fun. I love that it looks handmade without the huge pricetag and major upkeep of hand thrown pieces. We've had it for years and it still looks great. I pick up a few new pieces every year to add to our collection. Tip: if you start seeing some slight silvery utensil marks from rubbing your knives against the plates, just sprinkle a little barkeeper's friend or baking soda on the scratches and rub very lightly with a damp sponge or paper towel - good as new!
Yes, I recommend this product.
Still in love with these...

I've had this set for over three years now and I still love them. Use and abuse them every day and not a single chip. They will get some light gray marks from utensils, but the marks come off with a light scrubbing of bar keepers friend. I guess I could see how some people might be annoyed by this, but I still believe that this dishware is high quality and very durable. I love the design and the finish is beautiful! They are classic white but with a handmade look that makes them unique.
