Anyone using Denby dinner plates?

Can anyone tell me if Denby plates hold the heat? I do like to serve my dinners on warm plates, but am having trouble finding any that stay warm beyond the 'dishing-up' stage.
Keen to know before I spend my Tesco vouchers.
TIA:beer:

    Hi I have been using Denby plates/bowls for the past 30 years and have always found that they hold heat. I tend to put my plates in my top oven when the main oven is on to keep warm if using both ovens I pop them in hot water for 5 to 10! mins before serving. I have also had luck I think when I have dropped them and they have not broken. Hope this helped.��

    Me too.
    But that doesn't mean the ones you buy now are the same. ;)
    But I'd expect them to retain heat.

    Good point! Think I might buy just 2 to test before spending too much.
    I did contact Denby and their reply was that they didn't know how long the plates kept warm....and that any heating up had to be done very gradual.

    Well, they would say that, wouldn't they. :cool:
    For info, mine are Denby Greenwich and the website says:
    Stoneware clay is very strong. It is fully vitrified (the surface is made glassy and non-porous) which gives it strength, durability and chip resistance.
    It can be safely used in: Dishwasher - whilst Denby tableware is safe to use in a dishwasher, constant dishwashing may result in discolouration of product over time. We recommend using low temperatures and liquid detergents; Microwave - for cooking and reheating food. Please note: Using microwaves as a means of warming empty dinnerware can cause damage to both your dinnerware and microwave and is not recommended; Freezer - for storing food.
    All pottery and china can crack if exposed to sudden changes in temperature, no matter how strong it is, so please don't take items from the freezer and put them straight into the oven or microwave. Please do not expose to direct heat sources such as the hob or grill.
