House by John Lewis Coupe Dinner Plate, Dia.27.5cm
Perfect everyday dinner service
I bought my original plates a good few years back and was delighted when I recently found that J L still had the same plate, albeit renamed, so that I could replace two that had broken.

Classic and hard wearing
Lovely hard wearing and hardworking crockery, perfect for everyday and special dinners too. Looked lovely on the Christmas table and came out of the dishwasher gleaming.

Hard wearing and simple
Originally bought a set over a year ago. Great plates - hard wearing - have survived a house move and fitted into 2 different dish washers. Buying more now to add to the set.

Plates too big for dishwasher!!!
It is quite unbelievable that John Lewis are selling these plates that are too big to fit in a standard dishwasher rack but there you go, its true. AVOID THESE PLATES UNLESS YOU WASH BY HAND!!!

Too large to fit standard depth kitchen cupboards
A good value, stylish, contemporary dinner plate purchased to match some now discontinued John Lewis plates. Lovely in every way except very annoyingly only 11 of the 12 I ordered on line were despatched. Customer Services swiftly arranged for the last plate to be couriered the next day. Even more annoying, the plates are just a fraction too large to allow my kitchen unit door to close! This is a standard depth unit, nothing strange about it, so beware if this is an issue for you. I am lucky in that I have I have a deep larder shelf where my new plates reside. Excellent value.

Coupe Dinner Plates and Bowls
The sales assistant advised us to go for the round dinner plates rather than the square as they will likely go out of fashion and we purchased a set, which actually contained 4 each: dinner plates, soup/cereal bowls, dessert plates (which we thought were side plates at the time of buying). we also purchased 4 Pasta dishes and 6 mugs and cups and saucers.
The round plates are large compared to previous dinner plates and a sensible portion of food looks small.
Although they are allegedly suitable for use in a dishasher they will not fit into the dishwasher!
They diameter of the plates are such that in the top basket the basket will not go into the machine. In the botom basket then the blade under the top basket hits the plates and does not operate.
It would not be a major issue on its own but the pasta and soup bowls do not fit either. They are too deep to fit in the slots in the baskets. (The mugs do not sit on the sheves in the baskets either - they topple over)
Our dishwasher is a full size machine and yes the crockery can be hand washed but its inconvenient when guests come round.
If you regularly wash up using a dishwasher be warned.
We will not be purchasing any further items from this range and if we had known we would not have bought these.
We will be replacing these with more functional items.

Practical Plates and Good Value
I love this dinner plate as it is very practical and sturdy, yet simple and stylish in its design and as part of the House of John Lewis range can be matched with a variety of other items.
