This is a great looking set but at $179 it is not for every budget. We apartment dwellers, those of us who aren’t living in condos in Manhattan, can’t usually afford to spend nearly $200 on dinnerware; but personally, if spending $179 on dinnerware was something I could afford to do, this 40-piece Pistoulet dinnerware set by Pfaltzgraff would be a definite buy. It serves 8. Usually you won’t find 8 people living in an apartment. An 40-piece might be a few more pieces than needed, but you never know when you might hold a dinner party or some other event that brings multiple guests to your apartment.
The set includes  10-3/4-inch dinner plates,  9-inch salad plates,  28-ounce soup/cereal bowls,  8-ounce dessert bowls, and  14-ounce mugs. The dishes are made of durable stoneware and are microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher safe. The set comes with a 5-year warranty against defects. Want it?
