My mom called my grandmother a "slammer banger." meaning she was murder on dishes. She had Fiesta and it did chip, but not as bad as the Franciscan she had previously. I think she had bad depth perception, so she always thought the counter was further away than it really was. My aunt inherited my grandmother's Fiesta collection and added to it. I think she has a piece of every color they ever made except maybe one. We still chuckle when we get a chipped plate at Thanksgiving because we know who did itOriginally Posted by hepcat;3686410;
Maybe you could buy a place setting of it and test it out. I know Macy's has those good coupons sometimes and you can get a set for around $20. I think Linens and Things (or is it Beth Bath and Beyond?) sells them too. I have a few place settings and haven't had any trouble, but I'm pretty easy on dishes for the most part.
