We purchased a set and are happy with the quality and look of the pieces and how they're holding up in the dishwasher and microwave. I love the size of the breakfast bowl, though others in my household find it a bit too small for their morning yogurt. While the glaze is beautiful, it is, as other reviewers have said, somewhat rough to the touch. That means that silverware scrapes against it while you eat and makes a grating sound. We're getting used to it, but it does take it down a notch for me.
