Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set

At first glance, the Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set looks more like a ceramic art display than anything you’d dream of eating off of. The oversized square plates, round bowl, and mug feature a durable stoneware body with custom glazing for a dipped-edge effect. The dishes are dishwasher and microwave safe and are available in a black-on-cream color palette, or a more muted brown-on-tan. I prefer the set that is labeled as “black,” as the brown and red accent stripes pop out a bit more. The Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set is available on for just $76.47, and qualifies for free shipping anywhere in the US. A matching 5-piece completer set can also be purchased, to give you a serving platter, large vegetable bowl, sugar bowl with lid, and a creamer for and additional $49.99.

Unique Product

Sango Avanti 16 PieceThe Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set features customized glazing that is simply not as precise a coloring procedure as you may see with other dishes. As a result, you will notice slight shifts and imperfections in the patterns meaning that your 16 pieces will not all be identical. These dishes are special because of the imperfections, and this is in no way a defect. The texture of the dishes features slight ridges, which are especially noticeable in the bowls and mugs. They have more character than traditional, smooth surfaces, yet they are easy to eat off of and keep clean. The solid construction doesn’t chip or scratch easily like some dishes, so this dinnerware set is sure to last a long time, even with heavy usage.

Contemporary Colors

These dishes add great color to any dinner table, and look great in kitchens with granite countertops. The color tones are very earthy, so they match classic designs better than kitchens with bright accents. Additionally, the style is very solid and sturdy, so using the Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set in a room with adequate natural lighting will balance out the weighty accessories nicely. Note that the color palettes don’t always photograph accurately, so find a local vendor to view these beautiful dishes first hand.

Form and Function

Part of the charm of this dinnerware set is the oversized square plate shape which is just quirky enough to have a great visual impact on your dining space. However, the large size requires extra cabinet space and may crowd small dishwashers. The shape may not let you nest the dishes together depending on how widely spaced your dishwasher racks are. Some users also report difficulty with the plates catching on the rotating tray in their microwave, so make some measurements before purchasing if you reheat a lot of leftovers in this way.

If you’re in the market for a new set of casual dinnerware, or you just feel like giving your kitchen a new look without the hassle of redecorating, we highly recommend the Sango Avanti 16-Piece Dinnerware Set. You will love the unique color and texture of these dishes, without the hassle of fine china. The pieces are dishwasher and microwave save, and the stoneware is not prone to chipping or any other form of damage. Purchase your set today!
