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.

Kita Dinnerware is rated 3.2121 out of 5 by 99.
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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cracking problems We received this dinnerware as a wedding gift almost 5 years ago. Over the past 2-3 years, several pieces have begun developing cracks. Three pieces have broken completely as the cracks become larger and larger. We take good care of our stuff. This dinnerware is supposed to be dishwasher/microwave safe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Proceed With Caution The Kita is a lovely design and style.  As part of our wedding registry, we were very excited to receive the entire collection.  Over the last 5 years of normal/light use we have had 10 bowls, 4 plates, sugar bowl and creamer crack and chip! By no means are we hard on our dishes--especially now knowing how "fragile" they are. We never had a problem with staining with hand washing or dishwashing. I am disappointed by the poor quality delivered from Crate & Barrel, and surprised to see that Kita is still available for sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable and beautiful I agree with the former purchaser that these dishes are a good buy for long wear. I've had them five years and only one dish has broken, when we dropped it on the floor. No knicks in all that time. We have the entire set, serving dishes and all. I use Bar Keeper's friend to clean any residue. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great and durable. 6 yrs no chips I'm totally mystified by the negative reviews here. I have had these dishes for 6 years, and none of them have so much as a nick or a chip. And I'm not a careful person. They get banged and clanked when putting them away. I've knocked plate edges HARD against counters, and there's not so much as a scratch on the enamel. The coffee cups will stain, so if that's a problem these aren't for you. However, I have not had a problem with staining on any of the other dishes. I make a lot of Indian food, so I tend to rinse the dishes if they have things with turmeric on them before putting them in the dishwasher, but even when I forget to do that, it hasn't been a problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THESE!!! These look great but have the poorest quality I have ever seen.  One of our mugs literally fell apart in my wife's hand while pouring water into it! The price makes it even worse.  Got these in 2005 for our wedding, we started with a full set of 8, and are down to 3 sets and no coffee mugs!  Avoid like the plague.  I would give this -5 stars if possible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A coffee cup that is stained by coffee ....? Who would ever think that a coffee cup could get stained by coffee?  But this one does.  Then I checked the website, which does include this statement:  "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."What does that mean?  Will putting the Kita items through an automatic dishwasher once "seal" the finish so that it wont stain?  Or do I always have to clean my Kita items immediately to prevent staining?  It is absurd that a store will sell serving items that can be stained by food without posting a very noticeable warning.
