I love my new Sango Nova dishes. The color is so rich and luscious, I want to eat them when there's nothing on them. And they are huge! The dinner plates just make it into my upper cabinets, and the salad plates are big enough to hold a small dinner. The 40-piece set is a great deal, with 5 pieces per place setting instead of the usual 4, and the little ice cream bowls are adorable. My only complaint is that in a few places, the reactive glaze produces variations that come awfully close to looking like a flaw -- like the occasional "blob" of darker glaze (see pic) and one place where the dark rim looks a little smudged on top. But I guess that goes with the hand-made "artisan" look. Overall, I'm really happy with these, and the buying experience from JC Penney was perfect.

by Imat These dishes are a great value.
I bought these to go with my new granite and they are the perfect color. The dinner plate is a little bigger than what I wanted but most of them are nowadays. The small bowl is perfect for cereal and the larger one for soup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gmajoz Great set of dishes
Received this set and was very satisfied. Dinner plates are very large. The color is more of a burnt orange color but that is what I was hoping for. Loved having 2 sizes of bowls. The coffee cups are larger than normal cups but the best thing is how lightweight they are. Absolutely delighted with these dishes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Suzanne50 They are beautiful have to admit
I have been using this set for about 6 months now... They look beautiful on the table and have gotten compliments on design.. But after 6 months 3 of my plates developed a crack along the length of the plates... I am now down to 5 plates.. The bowls and cups and small plates are fine... I have never put them into the oven but I do put them in the dishwasher... I wish I can buy just the plates.. because I really love this set.. If anyone has found just the plates would love to hear where you found them.

I've used this make and model of dishes for many years, but mine starting cracking. I wanted to purchase more to keep using the same pattern. I only found them at JCP catalog. It was easy to order, it shipped in a very timely manner and arrived at the store in good condition. The only complaint I had is the shipping box was quite heavy but the store didn't have a dock so it had to be carried to the car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eileen 5 pieces - not the usual 4
Really like these dishes and love that it was 5pc place setting not 4. My biggest problem is they don't stack well and took up 2 shelves where my old set only took up one. Also, very hard to place bowls in dishwasher. They just need a lot of room. They are lovely to look at and brighten up the table. I would recommend only if you have lots of cabinet space and don't mind running the dishwasher a little more often.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mommie3 Plates don't stand up in dishwasher
Great value, however, the plates don't properly fit on the bottom rack of the dishwasher (they are too wide) so they fall forward instead of staying straight upright. I had these plates for two weeks before I replaced my dishwasher with a top rated dishwasher. This is an issue with the new dishwasher as well. I wish I had not purchased these.
