Porcelain dinnerware has always had a unique charm, which is why they’re still in vogue in today’s modern kitchens. When you need a touch of classic and classy in your life, porcelain is a budget-friendly go-to. White porcelain is supposed to look elegant yet simple – a symbol of purity as porcelain meets well-prepared, home-cooked foods for the family. They’re also awesome for making the dinner table elegant and classy when friends come over for tea or dinner. Below are some of the great finds we’ve seen on Amazon.
Nothing says elegant than a full ensemble of porcelain in the kitchen. Buying the pieces one by one will be expensive, and you’re going to have a hard time matching the designs and dimensions of the dinnerware set if you don’t buy these as a set. Luckily, Amazon Basics has a complete set (all eighteen pieces!) that covers all the dinner table’s essential needs. Amazon Basics has opted for A-B grade porcelain for this 18-piece collection.
The porcelain pieces are going to be tough and chip-resistant but at the same time lightweight enough to give you that classic-modern feel that will make them a sure favorite at home.
The manufacturer has also upgraded the look and feel of the porcelain collection because it can challenge new collections with the old ones. Don’t toss or bin your old glassware, even if they’re Pyrex – match them with the right pieces from this collection and see the beauty of the old arrangement pop right in front of you.
Porcelain does not mean weak – this collection of porcelain bowls and plates are dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, and freezer-safe, too. The only place you can’t put them is on top of the gas stove! This is such a relief for customers who routinely microwave or freeze their bowls to take care of leftovers. So if you are that kind of porcelain user, then this is the perfect collection for you.
Nothing brings together the entire family like a good dinner or lunch. But what if you have a large family? Will someone has to miss out on the classy and elegant porcelain ware you have just ordered from Amazon? Of course not.
If you have a big family (more than a tree, for example), you need a bigger porcelain dinnerware set. Not bigger by dimension, but bigger in number. The Mikasa Cheers collection is a full ensemble comprised of forty pieces of porcelain ware for the entire family. There are soup bowls, regular bowls, plates (two sizes), and mugs for everyone. But two or three of these, and you can confidently hold small parties without running out of porcelain ware. This awesome forty-piece set includes 4.5″ fruit bowls, 12 oz. mugs, 25″ salad plates, and 10.5″ dinner plates.
The present collection also features different yet coordinated designs and patterns for easier mixing and matching each piece in the collection and your existing dinnerware.
The collection has been made so that every piece can be used for either formal occasions and informal get-togethers. The look and feel of the collection are not too relaxed nor too formal. Additionally, modern porcelain dinnerware sets are no longer fragile – “fragile like porcelain” no longer applies.
Modern porcelain is both beautiful and tough, and they’re all made of high-quality material that will last for generations. If you provide the minimum care needed for your porcelain collection, you won’t have to buy again because you’ve chipped or broken them.
You will rebuy it because you want to fill your kitchen with awesome porcelain sets. After all, they’re worthy of your hard-earned money.
Mikasa porcelain dinnerware can be placed in the dishwasher, and the pieces in this collection are also microwave-safe. The manufacturer has not indicated if they have been baked to resist freezing, so hold off on placing them in the freezer.
Pfaltzgraff is a Lifetime brand, which means it belongs to the same family as KitchenCraft, Mikasa, and KitchenAid. This being the case, Pfaltzgraff porcelain dinnerware is manufactured using the same standards as another Lifetime family of products. They’re beautiful and built to last, which is why this Pfaltzgraff collection is part of today’s review.
This 32-piece dinnerware set stands out from the rest of the porcelain collections we have reviewed so far because of its raised curls, which are very classic and very dainty if you think about it.
Raised curls were in vogue in much of the eighties and nineties, and they’re making a comeback this year. This collection gives the user a very traditional and almost folksy feel, which is something to look forward to if you are tired of the super smooth design common in other brands of porcelain ware.
The collection contains the following: 14 oz. mug, salad plate, dinner plate, and soup cereal bowls, too. Essentially, everything you need to have a nice dinner or a small party is here.
Since you are getting a whopping 32 pieces, you will never run out of plates (unless you are serving ten), and there would always be a replacement if accidents occur. Pfaltzgraff has been around for more than two hundred years, and we can say that their products are heirloom quality porcelain fit for any classic or modern kitchen.
The collection is classified as “salt-glazed crocks” and is part of the great Pfaltzgraff tradition of delicate designs that are loved worldwide. Pfaltzgraff porcelain ware is fired at over 2200°F for ultimate strength and durability, and they are heavier and thicker than other porcelain ware. Check out other Pfaltzgraff collections for other colors, and you will see just how beautiful these ceramics can be.
