Tabletops Unlimited Fine Bone China Dinnerware {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Since I am the oldest grandchild, my grandmother has promised me her fine china!  It is a beautiful set, and I can’t wait to inherit it!  My sweet grandma is still so young and healthy, however, so I might be quite an old maid before I ever get to use it!  In the meantime, I still think a set of fine china dinnerware is a treasure for your kitchen and for your guests!  Even with small children in the home, the holidays alone make enough occasions to want to own a lovely set!

I had the honor and privilege to review an exquisite set of fine bone china from Tabletops Unlimited!  I pulled them out of the box for a romantic dinner I made my husband on Valentine’s Day last weekend!  I was instantly impressed with the quality of the china.  This Emilia 16-piece Fine Bone China Dinnerware Set contains four 10-1/2-inch bone china dinner plates, four 8-inch bone china salad plates, four 6-inch bone china cereal bowls, and four 12-ounce bone china mugs.

These dishes are ultra strong, ultra white, and ultra thin.  They are not all all clunky and they still have a decent weight and a beautiful feel to them.  U.S. market standards for bone china require a 25% bone ash content, but this set from Tabletops Unlimited meets the higher European standard of 45% bone ash.  The difference makes these dishes extra white in brightness and show off a maximum translucency.

I love that this set has intricate details in the lines around the rims of the plates and up the sides of the bowls and cups, but the pattern isn’t overwhelming or interfering with the function of the dishes.  The delicate grooves are clearly visible and smooth to the touch, yet the design can accompany almost any decor.  The classic white goes with everything, and I think this set works well for both casual and formal settings.

So what’s the big deal about fine bone china?  Bone china is a type of soft-paste porcelain known for its high levels of whiteness and translucency, very high mechanical strength and chip resistance.  The surface becomes repellant to moisture, odors, and colors and practically chip-resistant.  Fine bone china is typically quite expensive, but this set sells for $79.99 and is fired for 18 hours at 2,300° F to maximize moisture removal and creates a stronger, thinner bone china with a surface like glass.

Isn’t it beautiful!?  I think this set would be a great addition to your dinnerware collection, and would also make a great wedding gift!  Check out the other beautiful bone china dinnerware sold by Tabletops Unlimited!

I was recently asked for ideas of what I’d like for Christmas, and silicone bakeware was practically the only thing I could think of!  I love everything about silicone kitchenware lately!  I love that it is lightweight, flexible, doesn’t rust, doesn’t morph, doesn’t stain, etc. etc. etc.

Imagine my delight when HIC Brands That Cook® asked if I would review a Fits Like A Glove Silicone Glove.  Perfect timing for all the holiday baking going on right now!

This Glove is obviously made of silicone so its completely flexible.  It is hygienic, durable, and heat resistant.  I can see myself using this same glove in twenty years.

My favorite features:

  • It can handle anything up to 500 degrees.  I sat here holding this pizza pan for more than a minute trying to get the settings right on my camera, and my hand felt as warm as it would being held out above a toaster.   In a regular mitt, I would surely have felt a burn by that point.
  • I love that if I thumb the casserole, I can run the glove under the sink and have it clean and dry instantly.  I could even throw it in the dishwasher if I wanted.  I don’t have to worry about scraping food off and waiting for wash day to get it back.
  • I love that it takes up practically zero space.  I have a drawer full of crusty oven mitts.  So full its hard to shut all the way.  I don’t at all like collecting oven mitts, I think I’ve just looking for the right one, and until now have been afraid to throw them out.

Welcome to my kitchen, Glove.  See ya later drawer of crusty quilted fabric mitts.  You are so last year.

You can buy yourself one on Amazon HERE for $12.99!
