The Story

Pure and simple. Clean Asian shapes have a thin, elegant feel and sophisticated color palette of subtle celadon and matte black. Porcelain is fired at a very high temperature, with the cooling process creating the beautiful crackling of the glossy glaze. This traditional artistic effect is food safe, though it may discolor when exposed to foods that can potentially stain until it is cleaned in an automatic dishwasher.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm happy. I have been using these dishes daily for 3 years and have not had a chip, crack or stain on the dishes. Crate and Barrel staff told me to always put them in the dishwasher. The mugs have stained from constant tea drinking but a scrub with a Mr. Clean Eraser have them sparkling again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Although I still love this set.... We registered for this set just over 8 years ago. I still love this set though my spouse no longer does. The design includes these cracks which over time can allow dark stains to get in. We've had to replace several pieces because of this. C&B used to replace them for free, but they stopped doing that a few years ago. That aside, the design is very nice and most of the set has lasted for almost a decade now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant dishes sturdy enough for everyday use I bought this set a few months ago. Really very nice. I was skeptical after reading the reviews but I have found these dishes to be very sturdy. Our dishwasher is like thermonuclear hot so I feel confident in saying they hold up after many, many washes. Love the bowl shape. Perfect for cereal or soup. The shapes/design of all the pieces are really nice and very useful. Very happy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kita Dinnerware Although I love the design, I do not love the functionality. All of the dinnerware stains very easily and must be washed or rinsed right away. If not washed or rinsed, it will leave permanent color stains on the dinnerware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Store! My husband and I registered for the Kita Dinnerware for our wedding and are very happy with it! It's easily stackable to maximize our cabinet storage space and all food items that may stain have come out of each item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dishes! I have had these dishes for almost 9 years and they have been fantastic. I always get compliments on them from guests. I have only had 1 of the low bowls crack, but for the amount of wear on them, that is not too bad in my book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Have bowl and dinner plate I bought the dinner plates and bowls and didn't realize they weren't dishwasher safe so I rarely use them. I was looking for higher quality dish ware and I got it, but I don't use it as much as I anticipated. If you're fine hand washing, then these are excellent choices.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from watch out for staining! I don't usually take the time to write reviews but I figure there has to be others like me out there that don't read "the story" about dinnerware. Our first meal ended with stains on two of our plates. I went online and found that soaking in soapy water is the recommendation for usual stains. This morning I decided to review the website and read some reviews....and sadly we are not unique. Other folks have experience this staining issue. Then I did a online chat and found out "the story". Here is the story you ALL need to be aware of. "Pure and simple. Clean Asian shapes have a thin, elegant feel and sophisticated color palette of subtle celadon and matte black. Porcelain is fired at a very high temperature, with the cooling process creating the beautiful crackling of the glossy glaze. This traditional artistic effect is food safe, though it may discolor when exposed to foods that can potentially stain until it is cleaned in an automatic dishwasher." We have 90 days to return the dishes...which arrived with 3 broken. Lesson learned. read the reviews and read "the story" even when your buying dishes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic dinnerware for rustic kitchen My husband and I were looking for the quality dinnerware that would match our rustic-inspired kitchen. We forged the high-end retailers' collections and finally found a collection that aligns with our style. It's cream colored with darkest blue borders; Simple, yet has personality. Even my mom approved (and she is hard to impress!). Must do the platters and big bowls too! Dishwater safe, classic and strong quality. Love this collection!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but not durable enough for everyday use We received the full set of Kita place settings and servings dishes. We began to unpack them and multiple items were broke in our hands just stacking them in the cabinet. They were gorgeous, but couldn't risk keeping them because they were so fragile. C&B was great in the return process though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love these plates, but they are fragile I spent a lot of time shopping/looking for and researching plates. Love the look of these and purchased because porcelain is supposed to be more sturdy than some of the other materials. I have been very careful, as week one, was putting a dinner plate away and chipped an edge. These plates are fairly thin in depth and now nervous about breaking them. I have had the set 2 yrs and have kept them safe until recently I microwaved a dinner plate with food for under 2 minutes, it cracked in half. I warn guests of the fragility, they may think I am a crazy person, or do the dishes myself. CB did replace the dish and basically told me this type of glaze is not really microwaveable, so be forewarned. Otherwise I have had no trouble with stains, I do rinse after eating and use the dishwasher. I wish they were more durable, but will keep with them as it was not a cheap purchase and I liked the look over any other plates I saw from a variety of stores.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Breaks Easily I received my Kita Dinnerware sets for my wedding. After only a year, my dishes started to have cracks in the plates and bowls. I understand the design is a crackle design, however this should not hurt the integrity of a dish. Each dish that had a crack has now broken. Since I do not have any gift receipts, and it is past 90 days, I am out of luck. I love Crate and Barrel, but cannot recommend this product. It is ashame with such an expensive piece, that is has not lasted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good Just bought these dishes; serving of 8.  One plate and one salad plate needed to be replaced due to cracked and over glazed, respectively.  I'm a potterer and am aware that the cracking in the glaze can/may increase over time.  They have a different sound when touching, due to the crackle.  We'll see how they last.........

Rated 2 out of 5 by from These crack We registered for these and 3 plates have already cracked. I'm disappointed in the quality.
