I love fiestaware! I love the colors, sturdiness (really hard to break!) and also dishwasher and microwave safe. . Some complain about the small ring in the coffee mug, but I find it comfortable to hold. The bowl is generous size and oatmeal cooks evenly in the microwave. Both size plates are a good size that are easy to work with. I like to mix n' match my colors along with the tableware to suit my mood and entertain guests. The persimmon is a nice pinky/peachy/orange. I also own the dinnerware in Cinnabar, tangerine, scarlet, sunflower and shamrock. I will be collecting as many colors as I can.
