Everyday dinnerware recommendation needed

#1 Post by J a y H a c k »

My current everyday dinnerware is "Motley Crew Brand." An empty bottle of 2008 Black Sears Cabernet did a half gainer with a twist off the counter into my dishwasher last night, smashing a bunch of my remaining small plates. I don't think I have 3 large plates that actually match. I'm considering buying some new stuff. Any recommendations? I would like service for 8 so that I don't have to break out the china (we have three sets of that) just because my kids stopped in to get a roast beef fix. I do not like especially curved plates or plates with very high ridges because I find they make cutting steak a PITA. I do not need teacups and saucers. I prefer bowls for salad that will double as a soup bowl. Since we have three sets of china collected over the years for fancy dinners, cheap but durable is key.

We recently invested in some Pillivuyt French Porcelain dinnerware from Williams Sonoma. We are very happy with all of the pieces thus far and they are oven/dishwasher/microwave safe. The last set we got a Sur La Table for our wedding turned out not to be microwave safe which is a deal breaker for us.

I'm very happy with the quality from Villeroy & Boch. I'd had the same set for 12 years and not one chip or scratch. I use them twice a day and for the last 6 years, so has my daughter. They look brand new.

They are often on sale at Macy's or online prices seem similar if you can find a deal on an older pattern.

Jules spent years working in the china dept. She knows her stuff. Her advice is to go with a good quality porcelain china even for everyday. It’s harder so it chips less. Unlike stoneware, your forks won’t leave marks. It’s not porous so it won’t stain. And unless it has metal trim it’s dishwasher/microwave safe. It’s a little more money up front, but you won’t replace it nearly as much.

She’s a fan of villeroy and boch. She has three Villeroy&Boch sets, and We use their foglia pattern all of the time

. She says, based on her experience, V&B seems tougher than Noritake and Lenox.

Williams Sonoma open kitchen dinnerware collection is also porcelain and is a bit cheaper. Fewer options for pieces maybe tho. No personal experience, but she was tempted.

Here’s an article that she agrees with.

This 2.0. I like white because it allows the food colors to stand out and they look "clean" in a table setting. They're not exciting, but it's just an everyday dinner service. Also, at around 13 years in, they really seem to resist showing any wear from fork scratching, dishwasher dulling, etc.

Another recommendation for Crate and Barrel. We are really happy with their basic white Aspen line. They look great after many years of daily use and Crate and Barrel has kept the pattern around for a long time, allowing us to expand the set last year. Prices are great as well.

We have Fiestaware coffee mugs. I like the colorful row of mugs amidst the sea of white dishes. Coffee is black, so the color is a nice contrast. However, I really don't like colorful plates with food. I know, I know, FWP.

We settled on Mikasa Bone China at Home Goods. Very cheap. Plain white. Cost less than cheap dishes at Amazon. $10.50 a place setting, but you have to be lucky. It's not like they have a lot of stock. we got 9 big plates, 8 small plates and 4 bowls.

We have the Crate and Barrel Aspen in white. 14 years and counting, only one bowl has a minor chip from dropping it on a granite counter. Haven’t used anything else.

Did you try to research the Amazon? There are a lot of different good-quality dinnerware sets for low prices. You should not risk going to the store and getting COVID-19 from some fool who didn't want to wear a mask... A lot of fancy dinner wear is not dishwasher safe, so be sure to get a dishwasher safe dinnerware sets. No one wants to spend hours on washing the dishes after a big dinner with a lot of guests. You need something that is built with some quality, otherwise the dishwasher will ruin it. I had a lot of glasses and plates that were washed in a dishwasher, and never came out the same...

Lol I asked Jules how many different dinner sets she has... 10 different patterns plus some accent plates for fun. This is after she downsized by getting rid of a couple three sets we just didn’t use.

But we that V&B Foglia above and Colorways 80% of the time. She has a 4 color combos of those so she mixes & matches in a place setting. We don’t have any of the yellow, but this is the look...

+whatever for Heath. Coupe line for us, completely randomly matched colors that nonetheless work together. I have, however, destroyed a number of them but that was due to a) moving to a new house that had absurdly hard water and b) bad prescription on my progressives. Fixed both of those and the remaining Heaths have survived.

Hate to say it, Victor, but I don't think any of us are missing your "riddles." They just frequently don't add anything to the conversation.

I did, however, appreciate seeing your lovely haircut in that other thread over the in the Asylum. [cheers.gif]

I've been notified by my wife that we are going china shopping this weekend. Pray for me.

Saw these plates at Crate & Barrel. Has a textured appearance. It’s glazed to and around the edges. But the bottom is not glazed. Any issues? Might need to be careful not to scratch the table.

Yeah. You’ll have to use a placemat or table cloth if you have a finished wood table.

Hate to say it, Victor, but I don't think any of us are missing your "riddles." They just frequently don't add anything to the conversation.

I did, however, appreciate seeing your lovely haircut in that other thread over the in the Asylum. [cheers.gif]

This is sage advice. We have quite the selection. Same basic stuff as the WS open table at 1/4 the price. I wait until they send me a $10 off $30 and they have a 40% off sale and restock or expand. We have a bunch of the square bowls, soup bowls and shallow bowls that double for pasta or salad. The large dinner plates and the small salad plates. We use the salad plates usually as being smaller they help with portion control. Dishwasher micro and have put in a 350 oven without incidence. I think my net cost is probably ~$2.50 per item. Have replaced and added over at least the last 5 years without any problems.

We like many have multiple place settings of high end stuff. But don't get to use as frequently as we should.
