Kaj Franck

Born in Finland in the early 1900’s, designer Kaj Franck preferred deconstructed design and valued usability as it directly related to beauty. In removing excessive elements, his simplistic designs are comfortable and easily palatable for home use. Franck’s hauntingly beautiful Kartio Glass... More Kaj Franck

I bought it for the square shape
April 15, 2024
This square dish doesn't get as much use as the other pieces in my Teema set, but I'm glad I have it. Capacity-wise, I could get away with using one of my other circular plates or bowls, but the square shape (I think) saves table space and adds some visual interest. I mostly use it as an accent server, but I could see using it as a main dish for a smaller meal or compact foods (like sushi).

Square meets Round!

The Square Dish adds creativity to the round Teema collection. Plus - a great compliment to rectangle serving dishes. The dish is deep enough to hold "pie and ice-cream" or your favorite "mixed nuts"!

One of my favorite Teema plates!
August 10, 2021
This is probably one of the teema dishes I use most often. I don’t have many square dishes and did not expect this would be so useful until I actually started using it. Thanks to the raised rim it can be used for a variety of dishes from simply cut fruits to oven dish like gratin. I wish there’s ones in different colors as well.

A nice addition to the Teema line. Used for vegetables for two or a salad for one. It has become a favorite addition to the dinnerware. It’s capacity is more than one might think.

Square veg dish

I have found this dish to be perfect for individual servings of things like pie a la mode or any dish with a sauce or dressing, so i ordered more of them.

Teema delivers!
January 18, 2021
A trip to Scandinavia is where I first saw iittala Teema, and after a couple of years of drooling over this dish ware, I started to purchase sets to replace my Dansk (also nice, but not as nice) dishware.
Like other reviewers, I can only rave. I am in love with all things Teema, Scandinavian, actually.
This charming square plate is a beautiful variation to add to my round dishware. I'll use it as a serving dish or when I am just wanting to gaze at it....... I may have to get a few more.......

Peas for Two
August 12, 2017
Honestly, I give this square dish five stars just because I love Teema so much overall. They've been our everyday dishes for 18 years and I never tire of them, which is saying a lot because I like to swap out most daily use items fairly frequently. In that same 18 years, I've had several flatware, glass, linen, knife and cookware changes, but Teema is always a constant.

So back to this square dish; it looks fine, and works with the other Teems serving pieces. And it is definitely a high-sided thing, so it functions as a bowl rather than a plate. Yet I'm just not sure what to do with it. As a serving dish, it is too small for 4 servings of anything. As an individual dish, the squareness is less appealing than the round Teema options of the same size. I'm thinking of giving it to my folks, as it will work much better for a small household. I'm looking at you, peas for two.
  • pairs well with other Teema serving pieces
  • odd size for a serving piece

Nice addition to the Teema dinnerware set
December 23, 2016
I have the Teema dinnerware set in white. I bought several of these square dishes in various colors to add some variety to the white set. The size is nice for serving side dishes, or Chinese take-out. They are on the smaller size and not very deep.

Excellent replacement

This is a very good replacement to my "old" Arabia Teema dishes. I am glad that Iitala continues to produce this pattern and color.

I have been adding to my ittala Teema turquoise dishes as they go on sale. These square vegetable dishes are great-they have many uses. They are perfect for side servings of vegetables as well as for appetizers or desserts.

Very versatile. Useful addition to other Teema dinnerware
November 1, 2016
I purchased 4 of these so that I can arrange them in a square. I have the white Teema dinnerware and I like to use these to add color. Great for Chinese food take out, or other side dishes. Will buy in more colors.

Slowly building a collection

These dishes work for many courses. I bought them for salad, also use them for breakfast eggs, etc. Beautiful proportion, easy to fit in the cupboard! I have pasta bowls and mugs too; they work with my Dansk plates with turquoise rim.
  • The color is true and the glaze is smooth, no variation around corners or edges.
  • None.

Probably my favorite dish
June 25, 2016
There's something about the shape and size of this dish that makes it incredibly versatile and appealing. Whether for serving a small portion of food, for setting out appetizers, dips or snacks, I use these square dishes every day. The timeless style, the fun turquoise color and the excellent quality make these dishes my absolute favorites.

Loved the size, perfect for small servings of food. However, if they were just a little bit deeper, it would be more functional for servings of
larger vegetables.

Design classic
April 2, 2014
The design is refined but not fussy - dress it up, or down so to speak. It's modern but hey, it's been in continuous production since the 50's - so it's not going out of production, nor will it look dated soon. Regarding colors, my personal thinking is this - white is forever and looks great with everything you will serve. Iittala always makes it - many of the other colors come and go based on seasonal trends. Grey and dark blue have been offered for a long time, and the grey pair nicely with white (and navy) and are great accents to a white set. But the colors are personal choice. You can build a set slowly as needed over time and as sales happen.

The size is very practical for side dishes of all kinds, and it looks great too - the material stores in the fridge, goes in the microwave, or the oven with no problem Iittala prices are not the cheapest but the design looks great, it's a classic - and I'm sure that the workers in Finland are paid a living wage - unlike those in many more common countries for fabricating. This is the 'true cost of production' so to speak and is therefor worth it.
