The plates are simply beautiful!
Pros: (1) The appearance: the plates are a very sophisticated grayish-blue (not as bright as they looked in the photos) and the embossed roosters are pronounced. The edges are beautiful as well.
(2) They are a nice weight: not too heavy, but not too light.
(3) The quality is good; I expect them to last. I bought them for everyday use, and they're holding up nicely, so far.
Cons: (1) The plates are quite flat, so they aren't the best choice for serving large or messy meals that feature runny sauce or juices.
(2) The embossed roosters do get in the way when trying to cut food with a knife and fork.
(3) There are a few tiny spots where the paint and/or glaze doesn't entirely cover the plates, but these spots are very small and barely noticeable.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase, and ecstatic about Kirkland's low prices! These dishes are sold as sets elsewhere, but for WAAAY higher prices! Finding them here at these prices was a blessing! (Note that the diameter of 12 inches includes the pointy corners on the plate. The actual usable diameter is 10-3/4 inches).
