I have tried several items of crockery from Malacasa and this four piece dinner plate set like the others is large, heavy and designed to impress. This is not the type of plate you would eat your can of Campbells cream of mushroom from on your knee but rather the sort you would use for formal dinner parties. It reminds me of the crockery used in mid market restaurants and hotels.
The items are large and heavy and are clearly built to last. I can imagine them standing up to sustained use in hotels or commercial situations which is not to say they are inelegant or unsuited for domestic use because they are not.
If you need some well made heavy weight soup plates designed to impress for a special occasion then these will do fine. The price at currently at £16.99 for the two piece set including shipping (no mean expense due to the weight) makes them all the more attractive.
