    "I LOVE these dishes. They are contemporary but classic. You can mix them with just about any dish set that you have and they go great. Their unique shape gives them character without to much noise.The best part is they are dishwasher and oven safe. What more could you ask for."

    "When I first saw this set, it was because it was on a friend's registry. My first impression of it was, "Are they kidding?", It's so simple. But, you know, the more I thought about it and looked at it, I could see it's qualities. It's simple, but it's sophisticated, it's modern, but it looks like it was done by a potter, it's simple, but it has a shiny glaze which makes it elegant when you want it to be elegant and casual when you want it to be casual. And, they say it can go in the fridge, the microwave, the dishwasher, even the freezer (although I'm not sure that I'd try that). Once I decided to try it on for size at my home, I picked up all 4 colors. I knew that I didn't want all white, but which ones were up in the air. Good thing I did, because they are subtle colors and the way the light hits the room at various times of the day affected how the colors looked on the table. For example, the sage is so similar to the celadon in certain light that I decided to forget the sage and went with the white, the biscuit and the celadon. BTW, the biscuit, which looked like beige to me in the store, looks like coffee ice cream in my kitchen. It's so lovely a color, I never would have guessed! So soothing. The blue celadon is peaceful, the white is bright and nice at night when the room is dimly lit; it stands out. I have decided to do this: for every settings of four, I will have two whites, one celadon and one biscuit. That way, if I have 12 place settings, 6 will be white. If I have a small group, the table could possibly be one color. Or, I can mix and match also. After years of traditional things, dishes, furniture, I was ready for a change and this is it."

    "I just got this entire collection for my wedding and am picking up the rest of the set in Sage. I love how adorable they are and that I can use them for just about anything. I have already had people over and they were just blown away by how beautiful they are. What is hilarious about this is that my fiance' at the time chose them out all on his own! So, points for him!"

    "We just purchased this dinnerware a few weeks ago from our wedding registry. The design is beautiful and the white will go with anything. You can use this product as a fine china or for a casual meal. Because we purchased the dinnerware in white we were able to keep some of our fun bright accessory pieces to use with the dishes as an accent piece. We have greatly enjoyed our new dishes and would highly recommend them."

    "My husband and I received this dinnerware collection as part of our wedding registry. We have been using it everyday and we love it. There are so many pieces available and Portmeirion is always adding new ones to keep your collection going. It's beautiful, durable and practical!! I would recommend this collection to everyone!!"

    "I have had Portmeiron dinnerware in the past, having been of the opinion that the Welsh know a thing or two about pottery, etc., but I wanted a change from the pattern I'd had for the past 20 yrs. I wanted white dinnerware so I would not have to purchase serveware additionally. This particular "pattern" is gorgeous. The white matches everything I have and it is just perfectly "off-center"... not at all stuffy or formal, unless you want it to be. It goes from freezer to over to table to dishwasher, is very strong, no chips or cracks even with a 2-yr old grandson banging on them with forks and spoons. I love it!"

    "We looked for quite awhile to find dishes we could use everyday and for company. We absolutely love these. They look great either way-easy to dress up- and the quality is terrific."

    "I have attempted to order the 9 inch plates twice and keep getting 8 inch plates. The inch really makes a difference since I was trying to replace 9 inch plates that were great for my kids. When I bought the 4 piece sets, each of the boxes they came in said they contained an 11 inch plate, a 9 inch plate, a bowl and a mug. All were as advertised with the exception of the 9 inch plates, which measured 8 inches. I hope that Macy's can correct this, because I do really like this collection otherwise."

    "At first I was just pleased with these dishes because they looked so good in my cupboard but they make the table look great no matter what the occasion, a casual sophistication. And the bonus is that they are so easy to care for and can go anywhere. The cups have nice big handles for snuggling in and sipping hot cocoa as well as the more manly size hand."

    "My husband and I registered for this pattern after my mom discovered it in Macys. We were both torn on whether or not we wanted to even register for "china" because we are not really fancy people, but after seeing this pattern, we fell in love! It's super sturdy, not "fragile" like most china is. We use it everyday, and we love it!This comes highly recommended!"

    "I registered for these dishes after attending a Macy's registry event. The rep from Portmeirion had set up a whole table in the biscuit color. Just beautiful!! I might not have noticed these otherwise. This is the first set of dishes that I am really excited about, the shapes are great. My fiancee is very basic and he even likes these. The price is reasonable and even better with a sale. There are so many serving pieces in this line that will enhance my cooking as well. The rep also said they were adding more pieces to the line. I was looking for something that would go from freezer to oven to table and even microwave and also has a coffee mug instead of the tea cup and saucer. How can you go wrong? They are nice and light in weight yet sturdy. They look like pottery but are not dense like a piece of stoneware. Really lovely pieces."

    "Beautiful dishes; quality and great style. Unique interchangeable pieces. Can be used in casual and more formal settings. Food is displayed beautifully - even my "hungry" husband paused the first time I set the table and commented on the "presentation" - that said it all to me!! Also very utilitarian - dishwasher, microwave, freezer . . . can't get any better."

    "During the registry process for our wedding, I got into this mode of "must have formal china on registry". My husband and I are very casual and would not likely have a use for the Noritake pattern we first chose. I wanted something very nice to use when entertaining, but not so stuffy that it could not be used everyday. Then I saw the Sophie Conran for Portmeirion line - and I fell in love. The shape and texture of all the pieces are just amazing. And the colors are very subtle and soothing. Seeing them set on a table is very Zen-like -- reminiscent of watching flowing water in a stream - almost poetic. And the pieces are as functional as they are beautiful. Most of them are dishwasher, microwave, freezer and oven safe. If I sound like I am gushing, I am. Thank you to Sophie Conran and Portmeirion for designing such a lovely line of casual china - I plan to own every piece in the near future!"

    "I received these dishes as a wedding gift. They are classic and clean looking. They look like hand-thrown pottery. The bowls don't stack up perfectly even, but they do stack inside of each other. They fit easily into our dishwasher and come out clean every time. Also, they do not get too hot when used in the microwave - which is a huge plus."

    "I purchased these dishes a few weeks ago. Only used twice and scratches appeared on one plate. Used everyday fork and knife.Didn't even put in the dishwasher. Sorry to say a few days later more scratches on another plate. I sent back to the manufacturer for inspection. These are beautiful to look at and claim to be durable but I'm sad to say I doubt they will hold up to normal everyday use. I read all the reviews before I decided to purchase which for the most part were very positive. And searched for the perfect white everyday dinnerware."

    "We got place settings in the white, blue, and green (really love them all) but noticed the blue color is already showing faint scratches. Has anyone else noticed this about the blue? I see other reviews talk about scratches but do not mention color. The white does not seem to show scratches but I am guessing the green will begin to show scratches soon.We've been using them for 2 months and otherwise they are wonderful."

    "We have registered for these dishes and serving pieces for our upcoming wedding. The style of these goes with everything! They are quirky and modern, casual and formal all at the same time.We have had no problems at all with quality, and we have even used them in the oven and microwave repeatedly. And yes, we even used steak knives on them! Not a scratch has resulted from any use of these dishes.These make a great gift. I just wish there were even more pieces!"

    "After reading so many reviews of stoneware chipping during the first month of use, I decided to purchase porcelain. I have been using these dishes for 8 months and have not experienced any scratching or chipping. The unique design will work in either a formal or casual situation. You won't grow tired of it. If you only purchase the 4 piece setting, measure out 1 cup of cereal in the bowl, otherwise you will over eat. I use the rice bowl for cereal as well as deserts to help with portion control. The bistro bowls are great for pasta. The teapot, with graceful proportions, is a must. The sugar bowl has an opening in the top so a serving spoon can be left in. These dishes are large, so they will take up more room in your dishwasher, and you will run it more often. Other than white, I wish the color choices were more sophisticated. Love these dishes!"

    "My husband and I loved the look of this everyday dinnerware as the perfect blend of casual to formal. We bought 10 place settings and several of the serving pieces. Unfortunately after just one use, you could see visible scratch marks on the plates from fork and knife use and we never even used steak knives! I think because of the ripple design, scratch marks are going to happen and on some plates it is so bad it is just plain unattractive. I can't imagine what these plates will look like in a year. They are going back and it's a shame as we love the look."

    "While searching Macy's for wedding gifts (three coming up), I spotted these dishes on display. A friend was along and we both liked the style so much. I went back the next day and used my coupons and the sale price to buy a set of six for myself along with some serving dishes. I am sitting at my computer drinking from the very nice coffee cup...nice look, nice weight and nice style. I can't wait for an excuse to set a pretty table for a gathering. Debated about white or blue and decided white will be easy for a long, long time. Love them. (My friend has a flowered set of Portmeirion and says they wear very well...no chipping.)"

    "We got these dishes along with many of the serving pieces as part of our wedding registry about a year ago. A year later I love them and I'm very happy with my choice. No chipping, minimal scratching and they look great for any occasion. The serving pieces also mix in well with our china when needed. Also check out the glass wear that goes with it!"

    "I have always loved Alice in Wonderlands tipsy tea pot, hand thrown porcelain and dishwasher proof dinnerware. Sophie Conran's Portmeirion fits the bill! I feel like I have been searching for modern meets romantic all of my shopping life. I am collecting the biscuit and celadon, they will go well with all the other colors I use and food will look delicious on them.I also love the variety of cup and bowl sizes. I especially love Macy's for putting this pattern on sale!"
