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 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 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 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 5 out of 5 by from 7 years and we love them! We have had these since we were married over 7 years ago. We fell in love with their clean lines and loved that they were porcelain, a nice compromise between china and stoneware. We use them everyday. We now have a child who uses these as well. We rinse them before putting them in the dishwasher and have had no staining on our plates. Some of the mugs and tea cups are stained, but that's to be expected with serious tea drinkers such as ourselves. As a fun aside, I saw "historic" Korean and Japanese dishes in a museum and noticed it looked almost exactly like Kita! Roughly 1200 years later the design is still rocking!
