I own all of the baking dishes, plates, cups and bowls of this brand and highly recommend them. Performance The dishes keep heat whether used in the over or microwave. They are great for baking, as they get very hot and they distribute heat evenfully. Ease of Cleaning They are very easy to clean. The smooth surfaces make for easy washing off if doing it by hand. They are safe in the dishwasher and after being cleaned, they do not fade in color and remind shiny. Durability These dishes are virtually unbreakable. I have never owned, nor seen, a dish that can be dropped from 5 feet onto hard floors and not break or even chip. The lids are just as equally durable. Design This brand overall has a very fun design. Square seems to be their popular shape of dishes. All of their cookware is ''normal'' sized and thickness. Dishes are not paper thin, yet not overly thick. They are made to last and never break, and that they do! Doesn't Stick Certain foods (for example, melted cheese) may stick to these plates but are easy to clean off. Overall, I'd say they do a pretty good job of keeping foods from sticking.
