NOTE FROM COLLIN:
Similar to how we do our Try Me Tuesday posts with product recommendations, I thought it would be also fun to do basically the complete opposite. With that said, I introduce “Waste of Money Wednesday!” 😂 This post will be exactly that – the Hip2Save team will be sharing products that they aren’t happy with, products they feel are a waste of money – basically product UN-recommendations.
Hi there! It’s Michelle – one of the Hip2Save Sidekicks!
Last year at Christmas I had just one thing on my list! All of my dreams came true on Christmas morning when I unwrapped an entire set of Pioneer Woman dishes from Walmart. I was super surprised, despite the fact that I had bought the dishes myself, wrapped them up in the prettiest paper I could find, and labeled them To: Michelle, From: Michelle. 😉
I immediately donated all my old dishes and filled my cupboards with these beautiful plates and bowls.
It was just a few months later that I noticed one of my bowls had a chip in it and after accusing everyone in my family of destroying it, I got over it. But it just kept happening. I’d notice little flakes of paint in the bottom of the sink quite often.
It has been almost a year that I’ve been using these dishes, and most of them are disappointingly chipped. I’ve purchased replacements for the most chipped items, and I have noticed that the newer designs seem to be much thicker and sturdier, so it does seem that Walmart is trying to rectify the situation, however, the original designs have been retired and so I can never truly replace them.
And of course, since these dishes are so beautiful and make me so happy, I don’t truly regret my purchase – but I was a bit disappointed that they were not more durable. I didn’t exactly expect them to last like Corelle Dishes, but I thought the Pioneer Woman name would come with a certain degree of quality. I also own several other serving pieces in this line and they have held up really well, it is just the dinnerware that I’ve had an issue with.
All in all I’ve been less than satisfied with my purchase! 😧
Edited: We received the following response from Pioneer Woman Customer Service, so if you’ve had issues with your purchase, consider contacting them.
