You may know Mason Cash best for its cane mixing bowls, but it also offers a range of stunning stoneware for your table. This classic grey set is an excellent example – smooth to the touch, not too heavy and like all Mason Cash’s dinnerware, safe for the microwave, dishwasher and freezer. Thanks to its simplicity, it’s versatile enough for everyday use, yet could be easily mixed and matched with other colours (including cream, pale green and pink) when entertaining.
The set comprises four dinner plates, side plates and bowls, making it great value for the price. At around 26.6cm across, the dinner plate is an average size – not too big that it didn’t fit in our dishwasher and not too small for a proper feed, and weighs around 704g. The side plate is on the larger side at around 20.3cm making it especially handy for bread at dinner or grazing during the day. At 5.5cm deep inside, the 16cm bowl can accommodate a 400g can of soup without issue. Perhaps our only bugbear is that the surface is incredibly smooth – put a bowl on a plate and it’ll slide around, meaning they’re best stacked separately in a drawer.
