Have we found the most ultimate of white stoneware dinner sets to have ever graced the planet ?
I think we have! Whether you’re after single white stoneware plates or single white stoneware milk jugs, there is plenty to cast your eye over and peruse.
For many years people have been buying ceramic dinner sets and dinnerware but raising a house full of children or having a clumsy husband isn’t the best scenario for plates and dishes which are easily broken either in the washing bowl or through use.
Which is why I’m a great fan of stoneware, especially white stoneware dinnerware. White stoneware dinner sets offer more durability and hard wearing strength over other items in the kitchen thanks to the way it is made. Stoneware is made from clay which is high fired, at a higher temperature than that of earthenware.
While any stoneware can obviously still be broken, it is more resistant to being chipped and scratched over any other clay based products. We have found a wonderful collection of highly fired and highly priced – well not so cheap in any case – white stoneware dinnerware which would make for a great white stoneware dinner set once assembled in your home.
Fresh in from Portugal, there is an array of white stoneware plates, a magnificent white stoneware coffee cups and milk jug set and a very well designed stoneware platter. For food serving take a peek at the white stoneware bowls and plates and the stoneware mugs and jugs for liquids.
White Stoneware Salad Bowls
I bet you can’t guess where this beauty heralds from? That’s right, the Stoneware capital of Europe… Portugal. It’s not cheap but quality made Stoneware never is. This well rounded white stoneware salad bowl will certainly raise the conversation up a notch.

Another stoneware item from Portugal, I really never knew… it’s the little features that make a lot of products stand out. With these large white stoneware storage jars you receive a zinc coated heart label enabling you to chalk out the name of the jar’s contents without marking it forever.

Large White Stoneware Jugs
Call me whatever you like but I have the best solution for a large white stoneware jug such as this. Many would recommend pouring milk, gravy or sauces or using it to hold flowers or bread sticks but I find there is nothing more delightful than watching blood red wine flowing from a white stoneware jug.
This jug hand crafted from durable stoneware will hold two litres of fluids and measures H21cm x D16cm (at base) with a very wide handle to allow for controlled pouring as well as offering a distinct design. Get white jugs here.
