I bought the dinner plates and lunch plates and rated them both 5 stars. I was expecting the bowls to have the design which they do not. They only have a black edging on top. They are white and plain. I also expected that since they were square they would not angle in at the bottom and give more room. I am not as happy with the bowls as the plates. They truly are no different then round bowls I don't use. I like a big roomy bowl so I can fit what I want in it and I don't have to fill it to the top.
