I have to point out that the quality of this plate is really great! It's highly shiny and very very smooth, and I didn't notice any bubbles on it (if there are ever any, I always pick up on them!). However, I didn't fall in love with this plate. Though it's the same as picture, in person it looked like something was off (for me). Perhaps it's the red line at the edge of the rim that contributed and didn't suit my harmonious nature. Or perhaps the fact that the shape of it is not like a typical salad plate with almost full length being flat. This one is kind of in between a shallow bowl and a plate, and that only leaves about 5" of flat bottom area. And being it not really cheap, it wasn't worth for me to keep it. However, that doesn't mean that somebody else will not like it more than me, since the quality is great. And that's why I do recommend it still.
