Beautiful but (too) costly serving plate
November 1, 2021
I bought the KIVI platter and serving bowl. Both are gorgeous and practical and I just reviewed the bowl and would give it 10 stars if I could. NOT so with this plate. It is too expensive for what it is - an oversized dinner plate. The regular Kivi dinner plate is $70 LESS than the serving plate and is only 2 inches less in diameter and I do not think this large plate it is worth three times the cost of a dinner plate. Furthermore, I have THREE other patterns of Pentik serving plates and ALL of them are significantly bigger than this one is. (I rotate the plates on a shelf in my kitchen and thought this one would be a wonderful addition, but it sits two inches shorter than the other ones I have!) As lovely as it is, I cannot justify spending so much for an oversized dinner plate, especially when the actual dinner plate, also gorgeous, unique and practical, is only 33.33% the cost of this â€œservingâ€ plate. (I just did the math.)
To be clear, IF this plate were larger - say 14-15 inches in diameter - I would gladly pay the higher price.
- Beautiful and unique pattern.
- Too small for what it is supposed to be and what is being charged.
