I received a few of this set from my mother at my bridal shower last October. Have been using them for a year almost. No chips, and are extremely durable, but lightweight which I love. I did have some scratches from silverware, I researched and that happens with porcelain. So recommend to use Bar Keepers Friend only a few bucks I scrubbed them then ran through the dishwasher and they look brand new again. So putting a little maintenance once a year is no problem for me I love a white dinner plate. My mother has Mikasa Antique White and hers has scratches too so I think Bar Keepers Friend will clear scratches from her china set as well.
