    Default How much would you pay for a dinner set?

    Just wondering how much you would pay for a dinner set? I have my eye on a bone china set (noritake brand) which is heavily discounted but still expensive. Rrp $595 with some places selling for $345 but the cheapest I have found is $195 for a 20 piece set for 4 people. I am using lots of willpower to stop myself. We don't need it ... The dinner set we currently have are mismatched and some broken pieces.

    We just bought a plain old white maxwell and Williams one during the stocktake sale, half price at $70 so as bought two! I never really got my head around the fancy dinner set, some of my friends got them for wedding presents and I've never known them to use it. Plus often they aren't dishwasher safe and that turns me off too.

    This one is supposed to be commercial quality and dishwasher and microwave safe. I love it but would really need to buy 2 sets which would mean $400 yikes!

    If it was money straight out of my pocket, I would spend up to $50.

    I'd spend more if I had a gift voucher.

    We don't have fancy dinner parties or anything that would facilitate the ownership of expensive dinnerware.

    I wouldn't spend that much on something that's likely to break.

    Since everyone in my house has butter fingers I would pay $50 max

    But I guess if I had the money & really loved something I would spend more

    If you like it & have the money go for it

    I've had my royal doulton white dinner set now for nearly 5 years and still looks immaculate , and we use it nearly every day - I'm a big believer in quality if you can afford it as it will last longer - I bought 5 sets so I had enough for 16 people with spares ( 3 pieces have been broken in the 5 years!)

    A few years I bought 2 x Royal Doulton dinner sets and extra mugs. It is something you use every day why not use something nice? But I also have my silverset as our everyday cutlery, everyday is special
