Oneida Dinnerware Review: Porcelain, Ceramic, Stoneware, Serveware, Bakeware

Updated on January 13, 2015

Oneida Porcelain

Oneida classify their selection of dinnerware according to several categories, most commonly material or decoration (similar to flatware) determined. Each category – classic, modern, and decorative – consists of several collections, some of which have become iconic Oneida products. Overall, the brand's dinnerware (including related bakeware and serveware) serves as a complimentary segment that allows, along with the cookware and cutlery, to present a complete, well-rounded solution for the kitchen and the dinner table.

Dinnerware also enables Oneida to demonstrate its technological range. The company offers several finishes and materials, including but not limited to ceramic, stoneware, and porcelain, all executed in various finishes that eventually become the unique signature of each collection. The appearance of the plates, bowls, and mugs can be (intentionally) rough and rustic or, conversely, refined and elegant.

Classic division includes Athena, Picnic and Basketweave – all featuring white porcelain with textural (tactile) ornament. Modern and solid color comprises two main lines, Culinaria and Sunset, followed by various experimental and less familiar designs.

Decorative takes several artistic freedoms with the coloring, introducing gradations, and unusual, occasionally playful dot, cubist, or floral patterns (glazed). All pieces can be used in microwaves and dishwashers. Let's take a closer look at some of the popular titles:


  • Culinaria demonstrates a classic dinnerware design – round or square plates with broad borders carrying a prominent linear ornament. It's a simple and pragmatic layout that changes character as Oneida paint it with different colors: chili red, berry blue, coca brown, and other shades. Includes mugs, casseroles, bowls, bakers, and bread trays. Vitrified ceramic.

  • Fusion, square or arq, reflects contemporary approaches to design and cooking, namely a fusion (as the title implies) of western and eastern cuisined, backed by sensibility to oriental patterns and aesthetic. Porcelain made, and offers plates, mugs, cereal bowl, multi-purpose servings, dipping dishes, and other items.

  • Chef's Table constitutes a geometrically versatile – round, square, soft square – porcelain collection that usually eschews ornamentation altogether, allowing the light to play on the glazed surfaces. This dinnerware was clearly designed with elaborate, aesthetically thought-out dishes in mind – the type of food served in good restaurants (the plates not accidentally ending with a restaurant edge) – and provides an alternative for Oneida's more intimate items.
