I bought these for our office - and whilst the quality is okayish, they're really pretty small.

I've had both and would definitely recommend the Argos ones. They have a better finish whereas the wilko ones are heavier and more creamy white rather than white.

We've had some of their "Porcelain" and have mixed feelings about it.

Yes its cheap and "ok" quality. Some positives for everyday use, where you don't see £10+ going down the drain with every breakage.

But there are a few negatives:

1) I believe they cheap out on the furnace temperature, so vitrification isn't completed properly, leaving some water/porosity. As a result they aren't as hard and more prone to chipping. But also don't always work well in the microwave.

2) Hard to predict how long they will maintain a range. Coupled with them being more prone to chip, it means you end up with a mish mash of dishes, as you can't replace with the same range.

The microwave issue was particularly annoying. Food wouldn't heat evenly and dishes would come out extremely hot. Essentially water within the porcelain was absorbing the microwaves blocking parts of the food heating. For quite a while we thought it was an issue with our microwave as it was taking twice as long as my parents microwave (same brand) to heat equivalent food.

In the end we splurged on some Villeroy and Boch stuff we'd always liked. The difference was night and day. Food heated evenly and in half the time, with the plates themselves only getting mildly warm.

Obviously it may be OTT going for the very expensive branded crockery. But IMO its worth waiting for a sale on some of the cheaper ranges of the bigger brands and spending more. Post Xmas I usually see the gift sets heavily reduced.

I bought the cutlery set when I moved into my flat – still have them now. They do the job.

Unlike some cheap tea spoons I've bought from eBay in the past that bend at the squeeze of a tea bag. These don't bend.
These are just standard prices, the dishes will go on offer at some point. The tumblers are cheaper in most supermarkets.
I prefer the ikea dinner sets that are 50 pence a piece as they are brilliant white unlike these which are off white.
