    Golden Review Award: 22 From Our UsersStraight away 5 stars for this Denby design and quality of china. Looks smart and I expect it to hold up for years.

    **** Massive note here: the packaging is severely “sub-optimal” so don’t expect to receive it intact ****

    Just off the phone with Amazon UK – net net here is that the number of customer complaints of smashed china are so bad, they’ve yanked this product from Amazon. All the people you see selling this now are middle men vendors who often buy the lightning deals from Amazon and resell to Amazon customers. Expect the same issue whatever you pay for it or who you get it from.

    Background on shipping (& feedback for Amazon and Denby)

    So as I write this am off the phone with Amazon UK trying to resolve an issue where BOTH my shipments of this 4 place set have arrived smashed up. In my case, shipping it back is a real pain – I shipped it to a remote US location, and the outer boxes were both ripped – unusable, so finding a new shipping box, driving 15 miles to a drop off point then hoping I’ll get a refund months later, plus Amazon having to pay for the return shipping just doesn’t seem a reasonable (or environmentally friendly) solution. If it were in the UK I’d just ship it back. God I miss Royal Mail.

    On item 1, ordered from my account, I received a very low 25% credit on the product itself (I had four items smashed in that order) which I accepted because I just don’t have time to deal with the return process, but bearing in mind that included a dinner plate, I think it should have been more and also have included a partial refund on my shipping. Not the Amazon response or solution I expected. Also remember, once you’re outside of the EU footprint of Amazon UK, you’re paying an international toll charge to speak to an Amazon Customer Service Representative.

    On the second item, this was a via a relative in the UK where the order was via their account but on my credit card – 3 items smashed in that case and Amazon won’t even talk to me about it because it’s not my account.

    ….. So I have that working for me. (sigh)

    So why did it get smashed up?

    It all starts with the manufacturer packaging – if you look inside the box, there’s no internal material that can absorb shocks – just a little paper. The four main plates (high ticket item) run vertically at the back of the box, with zero cushioning at the bottom: ie. BEGGING to be broken, and surprise surprise some of those were. Nothing holds the plates or cups in place – just restricted pockets, so they rattle around in transit and this is why I have damage across all item types.

    Fundamentally, I suspect this packaging was designed for department stores not shipping. Whoever missed this when Amazon UK and Denby put their heads together for this lightning deal needs to earn back their Christmas bonus. Bit of a lack of due diligence.

    Next thing is Amazon packaging – just awfully insufficient. Don’t care whether you’re shipping next door or across the Atlantic, the packaging has to be better, especially so in face of the insufficient Denby box packaging.

    On the product:

    Firstly why am I buying Denby? For those in the UK, you probably already know this, but in regular use, not only does Denby look smart, it’s also got a fantastic wear life. My sister had Denby as a wedding present 25 years ago or so, and its still going strong. By contrast, I was married in the US 10 years ago and we bought our place setting from Crate and Barrel at that time – almost immediately it started chipping and breaking. I stuck with it, but it was a salami situation – fast forward to today and I have about 3 out of that 12 place setting left – ALL the mugs have self destructed and when they were alive, they were liable to give you third degree burns when you heated your coffee in the microwave. In hindsight, I should have returned it for a refund. Being a bit more savvy now, I realised that Crate and Barrel is a “form over substance” chain in the US – in short they sell [email protected], so I won’t buying from them again. Ever. Yep I’m like that – no time in my life to buy gear (or for that matter, deal with people), who let you down.

    One problem is that Denby is expensive in the US, hence the order from the UK.

    So overall, am out of pocket with an almost 6 place setting out of 8 total, so that’s a “partial success” against the great price / exchange rate for the lightning deal. Not impressed by Amazon UK’s response but at least I got something back on one of the orders.

    Back to the actual china though: If I had a chance of ordering this again at the same special price (96 UK Pounds) but with the surety that it would arrive intact, I’d do so in a heartbeat. This is a solid product.

    On my suggestion to Denby Product Management: Apart from the packaging, I would look to put together an alternate set. It seems that so many people I know buy the Denby mugs way before they buy the set. So perhaps a set with the large dinner plates, side plates, cereal bowls and the larger pasta bowl instead of the mugs would be even more successful?

    Bought as a gift for a Denby fan and they loved the set. The blue colour is truly exquisite, arrived fully intact and packaging was very secure.
    to also buy at reduced daily deal was just the icing on the cake!

    Superb dining set. Always wanted one but could never afford it, so the price was fab.

    Just arrived, so early, within window and securely packaged.


    One very pleased customer.

    Love it!

    When I moved into a new flat, I wanted something that I could eat off daily in style for the next half century. I was also looking for something that Is sustainably produced, for which Denby fits the bill, as one of the few companies to keep its tableware made in England. Imperial Blue is a timeless design and built like a rock: safe for use in oven, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher. Reacting to previous reviewers, my set arrived with packaging to the gills, and nothing was broken. The lively yet dignified colours make it a delight to set the table and even wash the dishes. Great value, and highly recommended.

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersOn opening my Denby tableware set, stunning is the word I used. Every piece was wrapped so well by Amazon, and every piece was perfect. The colour is gorgeous! It is so nice to buy a set like this at less than half price! I am over the moon with it, knowing my table will look great from now on. The glaze on the pieces looks great, and I know it is worth every penny too. I would highly recommend that other customers go for it, you will not be disappointed.

    Can’t fault Denby Stoneware. Tough, well made and decorative. Have some of this stuff 20+ years and still like new. Always worth looking out for this set when it is on offer to replace the odd piece that gets dropped or damaged.

    The life of our crockery set had come to an end, so we decided to move away from the plain white and adding a little colour. We went for this dinner set which certainly looks the part and it looks fairly luxurious. Our main concern was what would happen if we had to replace a broken plate, but this Denby’s dinnerware set has been sold for many, many years. Overall, I think this is a beautiful set and I have begun buying other items in the same range. Great purchase!
