Durable, but Really Annoyed with the Scratches
on August 4, 2011
I really wanted something that was durable but beautiful too. When I first got my dishes, they were gorgeous and it was exactly what I wanted! However the grey scratches started to appear only about a week after we started using them. I was so disappointed. I just got off the phone with Homer Laughlin company and the lady said that this happens to all of them when you use stainless steel silverware. I was pretty annoyed because I thought these dishes were the best of the best! Anyway, she suggested going to Walmart and buying Bar Keepers Friend liquid Cleanser, or Bright Copper Cream liquid cleanser, and this supposedly takes off the scratches...however, I think it's rather a pain to have to do this on a regular basis to all 15 of my dinner plates.
I was at a mexican restaurant the other day, and noticed their plates looked just like Fiesta. I looked on the bottom of the plate but didn't see a brand though. But I noticed that the plates were super nice and had no scratch marks like my Fiesta does currently. I was really hoping when I bought my Fiesta that it would hold up as well, if not *better* than the commercial plates at mexican restaurants.
