i've been using a set i bought from Bloomingdales 9 years ago. the plates are unpleasant to use since they are somewhat sloping, so saucy foods pool in the middle.
worse,i have 10 place settings, and all but 2 of my salad plates are chipped. the mugs are all chipped, and half of the bowls are chipped. i'm begrudgingly looking to replace the set and figured i'd write a review now!
