I got dishes when I was 18, had those until I got married at 28 and registered for new ones. I didn’t NEED new dishes, the old ones still worked fine, but I was tired of the old pattern and also they reminded me of my ex-husband.

@MrsDulce: I know this isn’t helpful at all but I just watched your wedding video and though “damn that girl is tiny!” so I cracked up after I read your post and realized you were the same girl in the video!

I have only ever had one set. It is Nikko and it has never chipped or cracked. I sound like an add, but I am serious. It can go from the oven to the freezer and through my crappy overpacked dishwasher. I have had it… 6 years now.

I was so tired of replacing dishes becuase mine always broke. So when we registered we got bone china for everyday dishes. We tried out a 70$ set of like 40 peices, but they were just crap.
I’m glad we got these, they’re pretty tough.

@onepercent: hahaha Thanks!! I’m under 5 feet, so yeah, it’s been interesting adapting to these tall cabinets!
I put the other ones on craigslist today. We will see what happens! 😀 If someone bought them I would run out and by the others right away.

I’ve actually never bought any myself…before I lived with my fiance, I lived with my parents.. So anyways, we have this ugly green set from Walmart, and I hate them. They are chipping away like crazy. We registered at Macy’s for fiestaware. I love it..so many colors and they work really well. My FI’s step mom has had fiestaware for years and years and they are still in perfect condition.

The set you posted is one I’ve always had my eye on. Now I know better because I am short too and I am the dishes-doer in our house!

We got dishes for our wedding almost two years ago and are a LONG way from even thinking about replacing them.

I’ve had my Pfaltzgraff for about 10 years now. Only one plate has broken, and I got a replacement off of some website. Lol.
I’m honestly growing tired of them, but see no reason to buy new ones!

Love my Corelle! We just got plain white so they will never go out of style. We got sets from Target when we first moved in to start us off, and I’ve been finding additional sizes of things at Walmart. Love it! Send it through the dish washer all the time, we have granite counters and tile floors and tehy don’t chip. You won’t regret it!

We just use Corelle. There are a few chipped pieces, but we have enough that it really doesn’t matter. When I moved out after college, I took my mom’s collection with me that she purchased when I was very young. I rounded it out with newer matching pieces from a Corelle outlet (picked up an even number of sets and more bowl options). When I moved in with my guy, he had a handful of the same plain white Corelle. We just merged collections. I can’t imagine needing to get another set since the initial pieces of my mom’s has certainly served me well for decades now.
For formal china, we went with a very simple pattern from Pier 1. I never imagined myself getting china, that’s one reason I went with the completely plain Corelle. But I found the Pier 1 set when they put it on clearance and cleaned out a ton of stores. It’s simple white china with a platinum rim that we will probably keep for ages.

I’ve never had anything but my Corelle. That’s what my grandma had, that’s what my mom had–I’m actually using half of my grandma’s old set and have mixed it with my own since the patterns go together well.
I’d never have anything else. They never chip or break, they clean up amazing and always look new, and they’re light and fresh.
Corelle will always have my vote.
