Rated 5 out of 5 by Tom78 Excellent quality
Beautiful vibrant colors on a tan background accented by the black rim.. This is top quality stoneware in the tradition of Pfaltgraff. It may be true that the product is now imported, but the quality and durability is still there.
We have used Pfaltzgraff for 25+ years and needed to replace several pieces of our old set, so we decided it was time for a change and purchased this service. I am not disappointed in the least as it is beautiful and heavy dinnerware.
The heavy glazing has held up to weeks of daily use and shows no signs of scratching from silverware.
The soup/cereal bowls are large enough to be used as serving bowls for a party of 4!
Two words of caution however. First, measure the depth of your cabinets to see if they will accommodate 11" dinner plates. They are very large and mine fit exactly in the cabinet, but another poster said hers would not.
And second, IF you have a "short tub" dishwasher, the plates will hit the spray arm and therefore you will have to wash them by hand as I have to do. You can't really tell if your dishwasher is a short tub just by looking as I didn't know my replacement was smaller than my original dish washer. So check that out if hand washing is an issue for you.
There are currently no serving pieces that match Kayla, but I was told that the serving pieces for "painted poppies" match closely enough to use with this set.
