An excellent, simple but attractive product. These plates (and bowls etc) at this price are amazing value. They are very serviceable, come up bright and clean in the dishwasher, take knocks and look good. 08 July 2014
Elegant white plates which look much more expensive than they cost. I bought sets of these and the side plates and bowls for everyday use. They are a little heavier than I expected and the bowls are rather large but they have a lovely raised pattern around the edge which makes them a cut above the average and they look good enough to be a "best" set. 14 May 2014
More interesting than plain white We've got 3 x sets of these plates, side plates and bowls. They are a great option - they don't look cheap, they have a nice weight and shine to them. There's a very thin white-circle detail on the rim. Makes them less boring than totally plain white plates, but still sophisticated. 18 March 2014
Very good value for money These plates are very good value for money. They are very simple but sleek and good quality. Would definitely recommend! 17 February 2014
Does what it says on the box!! 4 more dinner plates to add to the 8 I bought a couple of months ago due to the anticipated influx of folk over Christmas. Classy with the ribbing on the lip. The only aspect that makes them a little more "value" is that they are rather "solid" and heavy. 14 January 2014
Excellent value I previously bought serendipity by Royal Worcester but did not like them at all as knives had a disconcerting habit of screeching on the surface! However, I found these and they do not have the same problem - I am very impressed with the feel, look and value and will buy more. They are not quite as white as others but so what, at these prices who cares! 12 January 2014
OK This is the second box I've bought but sadly, not as good quality as the first box I bought 3 months ago. Plates are a little uneven this time round and it's very noticeable when they are stacked one on top of the other. The individual plate itself is quite heavy, similar to stoneware. Fine for everyday use, especially for younger family members with butter fingers. 09 October 2013
Very disappointed These plates are grey rather than white, which makes them look very cheap & in reality the pattern looks dated and eighties. Had high hopes for this but sadly returning all sixteen pieces we ordered for a refund. 17 August 2013
