Dark grey 'Shade' dinner plate
Avoid this product
It seems we are lucky that our dinner plates have not chipped, but they are all crazed to a greater or less extent. These small cracks all across the plates really spoil the look of them. They are not cheap to buy, but they appear to be cheaply made. Very substandard and disappointing.
Overpriced poor quality...lovely design through
We brought 8 dinner plates, 8 side plates and 6 bowls 6 months ago, only one dinner plate has survived, everything else has at least one chip in..such poor quality it's unbelievable, such a shame as we loved the style and design.. Doesn't matter how careful you are as it only takes minimal contact with anything for them to chip..beware
Chips galore! Don't buy!
Like many others, my review has to do with large chips and chunks out of both the dinner plates and dessert plates. I am not careless with dishes and always hand wash them. I received 3 box sets as wedding gifts and 7 out of the 12 dinner plates have chips or chunks out of them. 5 out of 12 dessert plates also have chips. The sets are only 6 months old! I really wouldn't recommend. I gave a 3 for style because I really like the look of them, but they are cheaply made for the price!!
I read the reviews and was concerned about buying this range; however I have no complaints about this set.
I have used them in the dishwasher without fading or chipping. I have broken one plate but that was my own fault!
The only issue I hae is the way in which they are packaged for delivery. I had to send lots back as they arrived broken, however these were replaced without problem.
Style Over Substance
I ignored the reviews, because I liked the design of the plates. Thought it will be fine if we did not use a dishwasher. Bought them in Jan-12, I've had to replace all of them in Aug-12 because almost all of them have chipped. Never bought any crockery so expensive yet so cheap. Please, please do not ignore the reviews, save your money, unless you are planning a Greek dinner
Do not buy
Quite agree with a lot of the reviews thought they looked nice but after 6 months a lot of chips have appeared and some of the bowls have large cracks, so please do not waste your money like I have. Wish I had looked at reviews before purchase.
We received most of this range as wedding gifts that we'd chosen on our list at Debenhams yet we've just celebrated our first anniversary and most of dinner and side plates need replacing. Bowls are the only ones that have lasted!!
Loved the style of these plates and bought 4 dinner plates and 4 smaller plates for everyday use ......after approx a year most of them are badly chipped and will have to be replaced ! Not good value and very disappointing ...would not buy any John Rocha china again !
