Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Discouraged from purchasing seconds again I originally ordered 2 of these bowls, both of which contained large unglazed chips, hard spots, bubbles, missed paint and smudges in the centre of the bowls. Emma Bridgewater agreed that the seconds sent were not up to standard (despite the sticker on the back stating the plates had been quality controlled). They sent several replacements, all of which had unacceptable faults. I understand seconds do contain faults (hence their name), but these faults should not affect the usability of the items, which in my case it did. Eventually, I was refunded but I won't be ordering seconds again. Even though they are significantly cheaper, you are still paying a reasonable amount and surely nobody expects to receive unusable pottery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Designer Lover from Fantastic look & designed bowl I purchased 4 of these bowls because I am in love with the pink hearts range. I have not been disappointed with the versatility of this bowl. Not only is it fab for pasta, its also superb to use when having a jacket potato when you have a runny fillings (like baked beans, salad cream or melted butter - yummy!) or even a Cesar salad. I have no end of "where did you get these from?", "I love the heart design" or "these are just gorgeous" comments from guests who have seen / used the pinks hearts range that I have. They are very easy to clean and go into the dishwasher without issue which is always a must when you've got lots of dirty dishes etc...I couldn't be happier with this item (or the range) and would recommend this product to anyone :o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flowergirl82 from Another inspired piece of pottery! I am thrilled with this bowl! Another great addition to my collection. The quality is wonderful and it's goes without saying ... A beautiful pattern! I must add it is a great size making it a very versatile bowl. For example it's great for pasta and salads but also an accompliment to a bowl (sampler or hearts) to keep your bread in when eating soup or muscles! It also doubles up as a great serving dish or bowl for nibbles and treats! A fabulous, all round beauty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillmcp from Beautiful, quality bowls My budget couldn't quite stretch to the full price pasta bowls so I decided to purchase seconds. They arrive with removable black pen circling the 'damaged' area. I throught the imperfections were quite noticeable at first but once I used them once or twice I couldnt even remember where the marks were. The hearts pattern is stunning and I will certainly be buying more of this range!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rachdwill from Perfect seconds! What can I say? They are perfect (esp consisting they are supposed to be seconds!). Great size and even better price. I love using them when friends come over as they always comment on how gorgeous they are (I'm guessing they are referring to the bowls not my cooking!). Add this to the most amazing customer service package and that's why it's a 5* rating from me! Thank you :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by EBAddict from Great value. Excellent quality. I was really glad to see that EV have (finally) extended their range of pasta bowls as my family love them and I was so pleased to see that Pink Hearts was finally available as a pasta bowl pattern (French bowl next please). The quality and workmanship as as good as any of the full price ones that I have bought over the years.. it's a great bargain.
