Dark grey 'Shade' sixteen piece dinner set
My son bought me a set of this tableware and he had saved for a long time for it. He thought that Debenhams only sell quality products and knew I shopped there often.
I was mortified when, within the first week or so of using it, three out of the four sideplates and a cup were chipped. I was extremely careful with it because it was a gift but it made no difference. I am now having to replace these as I have given my old dinner service away. Not great eh?
Some revues say that they have had theirs for a long time and have had no problems and I think this is because some are poorer quality than others. My dinner plates and bowls are absolutely fine. I agree that they should have been recalled. Something that you cannot use is no good to anyone.
I will replace the chipped items but if it happens again, I will be returning the lot!
Lovely looking set but expensive for what it is, every piece i have has lots of chips in it, very fragile but no matter how carefull i am another chip will appear.
After reading reviews of poor quality, chips and mold, i thought it was about time to write a review as I've had this box set, plus individual pieces to make a complete 8 piece set, for over 2 years with not one single problem.
They are good quality and have survived a single parent and 2 teenage kids!
I would say that i have only hand washed these, so maybe some people's problems are caused by dishwashers?
Looks don't last!
Such a shame, a great looking design but never had earthenware that chips like this. I liked it so much that I bought replacements but have now given up on it. Needs the same design made with different technical production.
Not fit for purpose
Sadly I didn't read these reviews before purchasing but assumed a designer product would be of a good quality. Boy, was I wrong!!!This product chipped within two weeks from normal use. Have never experienced this with any other dinnerware I have purchased. Given the poor feedback about this product I feel it should have been recalled.
Total waste of money
I to wish I had read the reviews before I spent our Ruby Wedding Anniversary gift money on this totally useless dinnerware. We have even resorted to coloring in the chips with felt tip so we can make a setting for four, out of eight settings & we have only had it since June, never been in the dishwasher or microwave & this is only using it on special occasions!!!!
I purchased this set nearly two years ago good quality no chips etc only when a dropped cup and plate on floor and granite work bench. what is other customers doing with them????????????????
Not happy at all!
Started chipping after a week or so.not very good quality at all.cheaper sets would probably last a lot longer.every plate has a chip or crack in it.hand washed and not put in dishwasher
