Upgrade Your Weeknight Dinners with These Simple, Elevated Everyday Dishware Sets
On the list of "most important kitchen items," a quality set of everyday dinnerware clocks in on top. Even casual weeknight dinners deserve a subtle upgrade, and the dishes you use can elevate your entire dining experience. And if you're hosting a small dinner party but don't want to break out the fine china, you will want a reliable set of dinnerware you can feel proud setting the table with.
Ultimately, everyday dishware should look pretty and special, but it also needs to be durable enough to use Monday through Sunday without breaking or chipping. A great set should definitely be dishwasher- and microwave-safe—and if it isn't easy to clean, then it's simply not for daily use. You will also want something versatile, so you can easily add more to your collection over the years (when inevitable breaks do happen) and keep everything cohesive. Ahead, our picks for the best everyday dishware sets for every material preference and price point.
