Worst Dinnerset ever

published

Worst dinner set ever.. isn't the cheapest on the market and only a few wash later the glaze is dull and lifeless. Marks are hard to get off and dishwashing leaves it with an very odd feel. DONT BUY this range. In fact I will no buy from this brand again. A dinner set I have had for 20 years was in better shape when compared to this. AVOID!

broken before used

published

bought some bowls to replace cheap IKEA ones. Placed them in the dishwasher, one came out with a big crack and practically could be broken in half. Can't bring it back because too far to travel.

Terrible quality

published

Extremely disappointed

published

We bought the set because it looked modern and clean. However, many pieces are stained, the sheen has worn off and considering the price I paid it, I am extremely disappointed. It was a considerable amount of money and now I need to start over. Stay away from Maxwell and Williams!

Very Disappointed in Cashmere

published

Disappointment

published

I bought 3 Cashmere dinner sets 12 months ago with some money my Mum left me thinking that the Within months they started to craze, have grey knife marks & scratched and some have lost their sheen. So disappointed. Will never buy M & W again.


Poor quality glaze

published

My "Cashmere" pieces lost the sheen of the glaze in the first month and became discoloured. This is likely to be a health concern as well as a definite aesthetic concern.

Black staining

published

Bought set of mugs about 6 months ago. Every mug has developed black staining inside at bottom. Only ever washed by hand. They have never been in a dishwasher. Bleach does not remove the stains. Relatively expensive product which is of inferior quality. Have lodged complaint with M&W and await their response.

Waste of money

published

I bought two of these Cashmere sets and after less than 6 months they are completely discoloured and feel rough and generally look like crap. I wouldn't recommend these at all.

poor quality

published

I brought a set 10 years ago, which was way better quality than recent rubbish I embarrassingly purchased as a gift. Maxwell Williams is no longer a good quality product, Target has better quality cheaper, dinner sets


Waste of money and very disappointing

published

Bought 2 Cashmere dinner sets 3 yrs ago and from the start the deterioration was obvious. The pattern in all of the dishes has lost the feature colour, the cups stain terribly, lots of crazing, some patterns are off centre, glazing has gone blotchy and dull, some are different thicknesses.
In 45 years I have never had this problem with any other set either expensive or cheap.
M & W suggested the dishwasher is probably the problem but no other wares are having any problems, including glassware.

Very disappointed

published

I have had my three dinners sets since last Sept 2014. It was only a short time and the most used items started to show deterioration on the glaze, some crazing and staining that refused to be washed off. 4 plates were replaced with the supplier placing the blame on my dishwasher and choice of powder. Since then the deterioration has got worse. I am very disappointed as I have had cheaper dinner sets that have lasted for years.

Disappointed

published

I bought two sets of the Maxwell & Williams Cashmere dinner set range 8 months ago. To my disappointment the dinner plates crazed badly. Myer kindly replaced the worst of the plates which I took back to the store. I was hoping that we had a bad batch. Unfortunately the glaze on the replacement plates has done the same thing. Previously we had a Maxwell and Williams set for for 10 years with no issues, so very disappointed with the poor quality of the Cashmere range.

Maxwell & Williams - Cashmere and Salt & Pepper EDGE - faulty glaze on side plates and dessert bowl

published

Very disappointed with these two products. Reputable stores shouldn't be selling these items. Dinner set plates and bowls should not have faulty glazes after a fairly short amount of use. The plates and bowls are only fit for the rubbish bin, once the glaze loses its gloss and goes dull and splotchy. These are not low budget priced items and consumers don't deserve to have these problems with them.

Bought 3 sets of the visually beautiful Cashmere collection. After 2 years of daily use they are now showing a gas like discolouration on the dinner plates not to mention scratch's ! Now they are unuseable and unappealing for setting a table. Very disappointed

Maxwell & Williams Cashmere

published

I too, am very disappointed in my cashmere dinner sets. All my mugs, plates and bowls have the glaze deteriorating. The insides of the mugs always appear dirty. Will never by Maxwell & Williams again. Unfortunately, before I bought, I had recommended my best friend to get these. She did, and hers are doing the same thing.

Shame

published

Within 1-2 years the plate and bowls had a dull dirty look about them. They have marked and chipped very easily....we are a family of 5 and not hard on our things. So disappointing that I threw the whole lot out. I will not be buying any more M&W products.

I love this set. It washes and wears wonderfully.

published

I have been very impressed with this set. The bowls are a great size. They wash up beautifully and haven't chipped. I got the set with the mugs and I would definitely buy another to supplement my existing set.

Poor Quality

published

I bought two sets of the Maxwell & Williams Cashmere dinner set range just over 12 months ago and like others who have reviewed this range have found that the glaze has worn and that the dishes mark. I wanted a fine bone china dinner set for everyday use and was assured that it was a quality product. I will never buy another Maxwell & Williams product again!


Dissapointed

published

I bought three of the Cashmere dinner sets for every day use, about 18 months ago, thinking I would upgrade from the white basics. Even though they haven't chipped they seem to have scratched much more quickly. Not sure I would buy this brand again

Questions & Answers

Babs

Babsasked

I have just purchased a 12 setting Cashmere dinner set. After reading these reviews I'm really disappointed. I destroyed the receipts after purchasing as I never thought I would need them. I have had my last every day dinner set for 45 years (Royal Alma with big family using every day) and apart from a few breakages it never chipped or stained. It was never meant for dishwasher or microwave and has just recently started to craze. I'm now thinking I have done the wrong thing with my purchase of the Cashmere set.

Mine is from the coloured Enchante range. The yellow and blue pieces have lost their glaze, red and pink pieces still okay ( I purchased a mix of pieces for casual dining) I don’t have white so don’t know if it stands the test of time. I hope this is helpful Babs

Thank you Suzi K. How disappointing for you! I have never had that happen to any china I have owned! Looks as though I'm going to have to wait and see what happens to my white Cashmere set.
