How many pieces do you need for your starter dinner set?

Basic dinner sets usually consist of a combination of plates, bowls and cups of different sizes. Some full dinner sets also include glasses or cutlery. One of the most important questions you should ask yourself before buying a tableware set is how many people you plan to use the dinner set for. Here you will be able to choose from crockery sets in a range of sizes, so you can find the right set to meet your needs.

In our assortment, you can choose from small and large starter sets including:

  • 40 piece dinner set
  • 16 piece dinner set
  • 12 piece dinner set
  • 8 piece dinner set
  • 6 piece dinner set

How to care for your tableware set

To be sure that you wash your crockery as recommended by the suppliers, you should always read the instructions that come with your tableware set. Here we give some general advice on how to take the best care of your crockery.

When you have finished serving, you should rinse off the leftovers. Certain types of foods can discolour any sensitive parts of the porcelain. If you wash your dishes in the dishwasher, using a rinse aid will create a film on your crockery that protects the tableware from scratches and keeps them in good condition.

What to consider when buying a crockery set

When choosing which everyday tableware set will best meet your needs, you should consider these points:

  • Design
  • Washing and cleaning
  • Combination options

Here at Nordic Nest, we have a large selection of starter dinner sets with both modern and classic designs that can be mixed and matched to create your own personal and unique expression.

What design, shape and colour should you choose for your dinner set?

Most importantly, you should choose a crockery dinner set that appeals to your personal taste and that will fit in both the kitchen and on your table for a long time to come. White or grey dinner sets are classic choices as they can easily be matched with changing interiors and table settings. If you choose a single-coloured starter set, you can check if it is available in several colours so that you can complement the tableware in the future if you want some variety.

Practical and functional table that fits into your everyday life

When deciding on a dining crockery set, think about if it will be suitable for your personal lifestyle. For example, check whether the crockery can withstand the microwave or dishwasher. Dining tableware sets that need to be washed by hand will take longer to clean and may not be a practical option for everyone.

What parts do you want included in your crockery set?

It is also important to consider how easy it is to complement the dinnerware set. If you are looking for a matching dinnerware set that also has serving bowls, serving dishes or other tableware items, check the collection to see if it is possible to keep adding to your set with other dinner items. If the collection does not have all the parts that you want, you can also investigate whether there are other tableware collections that fit well with your dinner set. For example, Teema from Iittala is a perfect everyday tableware collection with a timeless design that can be combined easily with other tableware from Iittala.

How to store your crockery set

To ensure the longest possible life for your dinnerware, make sure that you store it in a safe place. Everyday tableware should be kept easily accessible so that it is easy to use when you need it.

For fancy dinner sets such as Christmas dinner sets or tableware sets reserved for special occasions, these can be stored in places besides the kitchen cupboards. Wrap each part individually to make sure that they do not get damaged or scratched. You can use cardboard to fill up the free space as it adds support and structure to the tableware.
