I love this noodle bowl ordered from Mrs. Lin's Kitchen. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's even more gorgeous in person - the colors and details are absolutely beautiful. It was made in Japan and the quality is unquestionable. It holds up perfectly in the microwave and dishwasher although I handwash it most of the time since I use it multiple times per week. I only have one gripe, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5 - I recently found the exact same collection at a local international market where this particular bowl had a price sticker of $9.99. I would've felt better about my overall purchase had Mrs. Lin's price at least included shipping, but that was additional despite the fact that the bowl alone cost nearly twice as much. However, overall, this is an elegantly crafted, quality dish that I will use for years to come.
Merchant Response:We are sorry that you found the same one on the market. Are you sure it is exactly the same? There are several manufacturers (both from China and Japan) and sometimes the quality is different.
