All mine are breaking, and I need to think about getting something different. What do you/don't you like about them?
Loc: Steeler Country!
|Posted: 11/14/2013 12:28:20 PM|I have just about every piece of the Pfaltzgraf Naturewood collection. I registered for it when I got married and got pretty much everything. I've lost a few pieces along the way but for the most part its been awesome. My only issue now is that after having them for 15 years I'm ready for something different. The only problem is replacing all of that is going to cost me a fortune!
I would say the only thing I'm not crazy about is that because its a thick stoneware, its a bit on the heavy side.

I use cheap china plates from Goodwill. Nothing at all matches and that works for my style. Bonus is that when one breaks, I can just buy whatever tickles my fancy next time I go to Goodwill.
I am not a matchy matchy kind of girl, even my fancy table doesn't match. I also buy crystal stemware and what not from Goodwill as well.

I am in the market for some new everyday dishes. We have had our set for 16+ years. I'd love some suggestions!

|Posted: 11/14/2013 12:45:20 PM|I just have 1 set of dishes, Feistaware. They are kind of heavy but I must like that as my old dishes were kind of heavy too
This is only my second set of dishes that I really remember, I buy them and kind of stick with them for many years. My first set was about 30 yrs ago and was a grocery store set you got after spending XX $$.

They don't sell them here in Canada so I have to buy them when I'm on vacation in the USA ... it's totally worth it because they are durable and the colours are beautiful

I have the Pfaltzgraf Ocean Breeze set. I like them because they are simple in color (light beige with green & blue stripes around the edges). I've had them for about 5 years I think. Prior to that I had a Corelle set that was given to me when I moved into my first apartment. I had those for 20 years.

I had those before my Fiesta.. I did LOVE that collection but got tired of it... (kinda wish I just packed them away).. I still have the canisters.

Some Corelle that I got from Target or Walmart.

For everyday - my Fiesta. Every color - almost.
|Posted: 11/14/2013 1:12:46 PM|
corelle. I love how thin they are and how nicely they stack in the drawer and the dishwasher, but I'm sick of the pattern. It was a wedding gift and we've been married almost 20 yrs.

Corelle. Its a basic white with black accents around the rim. I like that is it thin so doesn't take a lot of cabinet space and light weight.

Spode Blue Room plates in varying patterns that I got for $5 apiece at TJ Maxx/Marshalls. I love them. I think only one has broken in ten years.

I don't have complete sets..just white dishes with a few different patterns that coordinate. For my serving and salad plates I have Emeril Lagasse. Have had these for a good 5 years and haven't broke one yet..my only complaint is that it is a large plate..I want to say like 13"
My bowls are mixed. I have Ikea, PierOne and Williams Sonoma
Glasses are from Crate and Barrel.
Coffe Cups are also mixed. I have a few favoite ones I use from Disney, Starbucks, Crate and Barrel, etc.

|Posted: 11/14/2013 1:35:21 PM|We use white Corelle because they don't break and DGD likes to wash her own dishes
I have Pfaltzgraff Yorktown that I love but they're so heavy and break so we haven't used them in ages
Often though I take out my china and use it, just because it's there

After years of colorful plates, I am thinking of getting all white. I saw some from Better Homes and Gardens at WalMart that I like. They are square
|Posted: 11/14/2013 1:41:56 PM|
We have white Corelle. I like that it is thin, light and doesn't take up a ton of space even though we have enough for 16. And I can use any color placemats or napkins I want and change the look.

Another one with Ocean Breeze, but I've added some Fiesta Cobalt Blue pieces for accents.
We've been married/had our dishes for 12 years and I only have a few chips.
|Posted: 11/14/2013 2:22:38 PM|
We have mismatched Corelle dishes that my sister got practically for free years ago when she worked at Kmart and they would have boxes with some broken in them.
But truthfully our everyday plates are Dixie Ultra so we have less dishes to wash. We also use plastic forks and spoons and cups. Unless we have company that isn't my brother then we break out the Corelle.

Fiesta and I haven't lost a piece in 3 moves. However I lost 2 s and p shakers and a monkey bowl due toa tile and toddler combo. To be fair, I lost 3 correlle pieces to the same combo.

I have and love fiestaware. It is our everyday and our good stuff. I just switch up colors for the occasion.
I don't love how heavy it can be and how hot it can get.
I love how it holds up. Been using some of ours for five years and not a chip or broken dish yet, and we're not the most gentle people with our dishes.

Fiesta, for sure! They're the only dishes that can hold up to the beating my family puts them through. I have some older Franciscan Desert Rose that is almost as durable.
|Posted: 11/14/2013 3:05:34 PM|fiestaware- so many good deals from kohls, amazon and macys, i buy a lot of open stock because I like to choose what bowls I get but I have bought some place settings because you can get so many good deals
i just love all the colors and you can switch it up to your liking right now i have all my fall colors out - chocolate, tangerine, ivory, paprika, marigold etc.
Right after thanksgiving, I will switch to christmas - scarlett, shamrock, lemongrass and white

I have Corelle Calico Rose pattern dishes that are 28 years old. I have broken one or two pieces in all those years. I still love them as much as the day I got them. As others said, they take up very little space, stack nicely and are tough as nails.

I have a set of white stoneware from Crate and Barrel. They are heavy as heck but they are big and have a great edge that doesn't take space away from the surface area of the plates. And it takes a beating. I think my great grandchildren's great grandchildren will be using this set some day!

I have service for 12 and just about every serving piece of Pfaltzgraf April. I've had it for years and still love it. I bought some plain white square plates and some assorted serving pieces with purple and turquoise stripes from Crate & Barrel a few years ago to shake it up a little. These are the only dishes I have so I use them for all occasions.

I have square Fiesta and really like it, except the bowls. They are good for cereal and such, but not for salads or pasta. But, Fiesta has so many different bowls that I can easily add another one.
|Posted: 11/14/2013 3:57:46 PM|
I honestly looked everywhere but didn't want to have the weight of something like Fiesta. So I ended up with a set from Pier 1 Imports called Spice Route:
It comes in a Red/Paprika, Green/Clove, Cream/Sesame, Yellow/Ginger
What's cool is you can get square plates too and you can buy it by the piece so if there is one you don't like, you don't have to pay for it (we never use the mugs in sets for example)
