Beautiful Dinnerware
Sep 6, 2022  |  By Ellen S., Livingston, MT
I recently added to a 6 piece collection from years ago and the pieces match beautifully. I now have 4 full dinner settings and additional platters. I could be more pleased! Thank you Bennington potters!

Blue Agate+++
Apr 20, 2022  |  By Michele B., Doylestown, PA
I had to wait for the Blue Agate dinner plate as it was back ordered. It was SO worth the wait! It is the perfect size, durable for everyday use and it is my favorite Bennington Potters pattern. I'm so happy I waited for this color to be available.

Lovely pottery.

The colors and finish on these is gorgeous. I'll be placing an order for more.

Have ordered more than once. Large and sturdy, with a gorgeous finish. I get the white on white and it's the perfect neutral that still has a lovely natural quality you'd look for in real pottery.

Beautiful and Durable

We love our new plates. They are lightweight AND durable. I am excited to add more pieces to our collection.

I love these plates! I remember a chef saying everything looks great on a blue plate. He's right! I also purchased the salad size. Very happy with them. I put them in the dishwasher, and they are fine. Also like that they are made in the USA and do not contain lead! Feel better about that.

I have been collecting this pottery for years, purchasing piece by piece. I was not a "collector" of things until I got this pottery. The first piece of Bennington that I got was a pair of candle sticks my husband bought me for Christmas. After that I was hooked.

We bought two of these black plates when we were first dating 34 years ago. Have always loved them and was thrilled to see that Bennington still makes them. We ordered 4 more. Our 34 year old plates are none the worse for wear, and somehow the speckled black pottery makes such a pretty background for the food that is served on them. Very happy!

dinner plate, classic
Aug 15, 2021  |  By Candace B., Madison, OH
I broke a dinner plate and could hardly wait until my new order came.
while I was ordering I thought another oval plate would be nice. That is a good plate for a lunch or snack sandwich. The color of the classic pottery is beautiful, the size of the dinner plate is perfect, when we entertain we always get compliments on the table service along with the food.

Excellent Quality
Jul 3, 2021  |  By Susan, Troy, NY
We have been adding to our dinnerware set for 30 years now. The plates last through daily use and dishwashing.

We keep adding pieces over time as our family has grown and our entertaining needs have changed.

The pieces we purchase to add to our set never disappoint. They are a great value as they last!!!

Dinner for Twenty
Jul 1, 2021  |  By V. H., North Bennington, VT
This review praises the White-on-White dinner plate, dessert plate, and bowl. This is the prettiest stoneware pattern I know. These pieces form the basis of a dinner service for a writers residency in North Bennington.

Great quality, beautiful color

Can't say enough about our place settings. The blue is gorgeous. We have two men in the house that love the plates because they are not heavy :) I'm also happy our butterdish is not circular (the last one we owned was circular even though butter is not :(

My daughter fell in love with your pottery. She is buying pieces to have a full set. I contributed a couple of plates. She was very happy to be able an additional two plates.

I started collecting Bennington's Elements Gold on eBay and recently filled in with a bunch of new dinner and lunch plates. These dishes are light, really tough and are a beautiful color. They are elegant and informal at the same time. I will be ordering more!

Arrived in excellent condition, very high quality Bennington ware. My family have been customers for two generations going back into the 1960s.

Great dinner plates
Apr 15, 2021  |  By Cherie H., Northfield Center, OH
I was looking for some dinner plates with a "rim" or higher sides to use when we have something with gravy or a sauce so the sauce/gravy stays on the plate and doesn't travel onto the tablecloth. I bought 2 of the classic plates in Tavernware and they are perfect! I plan to get a couple more soon!

The best stoneware!

I have used Bennington Pottery my entire life, I purchased items for replacement after breakage! I will never use any other and love looking at the beautiful design.

My husband and I have purchased Bennington Pottery for over 25 years. Our purchases were odds and ends pieces. More recently we have been slowly building our collection of dinner plates for everyday use. These are heavy well made plates, pricey yes, but we plan on having them until we kick the bucket. Tavernware looks great with any table setting, although we do mix and match with some other glazes. Love you BP.

My brother and his wife loved this gift. They have several items in this glaze I have gotten over the years and the dinner plates wow'd them! Simply spectacular!

Sorry I waited so long
Jan 3, 2021  |  By Karen, Brooklyn, NY
I have several pieces of your pottery and have been wanting a complete set of dinnerware for the longest time. I love the feel of these plates, I love the rim on them and of course I love the look. Can't wait till I can visit potters studio and buy a few more pieces.

Perfection

Beautiful, functional and easy to care for - these dinner plates will give us many years of happiness.

I bought the white on white plates and have been really enjoying them! They are so well crafted. Yet, unlike some other pottery plates I have owned, are light in the hand. They also have a nice sloped edge.

Delivery

After 18 years of everyday use one of the plates broke. I have a full set of Tavernware, so i replaced the broken one and added 2 additional. 10 gets my husband and I through 5 nights of dinner. These plates are expensive at $32/plate, but they wear like iron and I intend to use them for at least another 18 years.

Perfect plates

Always top quality from Bennington Potters! Plates are so durable.

Beautiful Dinner Plates
Oct 25, 2020  |  By Doug C., Mint Hill, NC
Love the shape of the sloped sides on this piece. More plate and less trim so to speak. Our current plates have large lips and less plate. I think I would like these a bit more if they were just a bit bigger. Maybe 1" - 1.5". If they added 1.5" they would just fit my cabinets, so these are not small by any means. The wife thinks these are the perfect size.

Safe AND lovely
Jul 23, 2020  |  By Briana A., Strasburg, VA
My main reason for purchasing these plates was they were recommended as the safest, metal free option available. I did not expect them to be as pretty as they are. I love the white glaze and I think I'm going to add the yellow to our collection next. Also love how well they fare in the dishwasher. The lip on the plates is also just perfect. Can't wait to replace everything in the cupboards with your products!

Great Service
Jul 9, 2020  |  By Bill R., Atlanta, GA
Because we already own many pieces from the pottery, we were sure we would love the plates and we do. What impressed us was the prompt customer service. Two plates were broken in shipping and all it took from us was a couple of emails and those plates were replaced.
Will buy more in the future.

I have been hunting bennington pottery for years. My husband found a lot of it at an antique store so we just needed one dinner plate so we have 2 of everything.

Favorite plates
May 15, 2020  |  By Jordana, Sherman Oaks, CA
We had a set of the black plates for our wedding back in the 90's. After a long time, we decided to give them away and get updated plates. My husband kept one black plate. Years later, I realized he still only uses his one black plate. My son started using it, too. I finally decided we needed our plates back! To switch it up, I bought the white ones. They love the rim. I love the smaller plate size. We're back!

Classic beauty

These are the first dinner plates I have ever bought from Bennington Potters and they are beautiful! I love the edge on these plates, which will contain juices, etc. So far I have 4 but in time I plan to get more.

These plates are gorgeous. Sturdy, but not overly heavy. Generously sized but fit well in standard dishwasher. I wish I ordered twice as many.

These are lovely and boy do they last!

I came onto this site looking for a replacement mug because I dropped one of mine. I originally got my entire set as a present in the 1990s. They still look beautiful! I love them!

Awesome plates
Mar 12, 2020  |  By Julie J., Fortuna. CA
I bought these plates years ago because husband is not gentle with dishes. I ordered 4 more as they have broke in the last 2 months. I say 15 years on a plate is pretty awesome. The plates match and love how they have a little more of a lip. Very pleased and looking forward to another 15 plus years of use

Classic plates

25 years ago, we got the white on white classic plates, bowls and other items as our wedding 'china' (not that into fancy china). We loved them then and they have stood the test of time! We used to only use them as our good dishes, but the're just so great and now that my kids are almost adults and can be trusted we use them all the time! I recently purchased a few more to replace a couple that were broken over the years. We still love them and they are still as stylish and beautiful as they were 25 years ago. I can't tell the difference between the new ones and the 25 year old plates. Thank you!

Other than the superb craftmanship of these plates, they are classic, unique, and attractive. They mesh with a variety of decoration styles both rustic and traditional. I couldn't recommend these plates enough as a staple for your kitchen.

I have had my Bennington set for years. Have always been my favorites. I recently decided to bring it back up to 12 settings.
Replacements are perfect in every way. The ordering process was so smooth and the follow up communication from Bennington was immediate, they wanted to inform me I had a free gift. Wow. Now I have a totally different coffee mug that I love.
So happy to have a company I have used for a couple of decades that still promotes great Customer Service as well as consistent and well crafted products. Thank you all.

Great Quality Pieces!

This time the purchase was a dinner plate, replacing the one we broke. It's SO good that your colors and sizes and shapes are consistent, so we can fill in when we goof up. The new one looks exactly like the others even though those were purchased years ago. Bless your consistently high quality and standards!

I have been using this pottery for 40+ years. Started with the black on slate...then just updated to white on white. All 3 of my children are hooked and use it in their homes. Nothing else compares to the timeless esthetics this pottery displays.

Love them

I broke one of the two blue agate dinner plates my husband gave me for Christmas last year. I was so sad...decided to order a new one right away. It's here and all is well again. (Hoping he gives me two more this year!! :)
