I really didn't know what to put in the title for this question!
I have white Pfaltzgraf dishes, and have had them a number of years. My BIL worked there 30-some years and I figured I buy these dishes and he'd keep his job! The problem is that my knives and forks leave black marks on the plates. The dishwasher does not remove them - I can get a lot off if I scrub each plate with 'bartender's friend' or 'Bon Ami' cleanser.
My question is I guess, do I need new dishes? Is the finish on the dishes worn and that's why the flatware leaves marks? And if I need new dishes, how does Corelleware hold up? I saw some plain white at Target not long ago.
