When you think about outfitting your kitchen with the essentials, what are the first things that come to mind? Some may think of appliances like stand mixers and microwaves. Others might immediately start thinking about cookware like cast iron skillets or Dutch ovens. But if there’s one thing no kitchen (and no home) can be without, it’s dinnerware. A kitchen mainstay, the right dinnerware can be the secret to you finally looking forward to setting your table as well as elevating your next meal without even trying. But with so many places to shop nowadays, where should you be looking for your next dinnerware set? Below, we rounded up 15 of the best places to buy dinnerware online, from mega-retailers we all know and love like Walmart and Wayfair to smaller DTC brands we think you’re going to love as much as we do. Here’s to finding the dinnerware set you’ll love for years to come. 

Do you have a go-to source for dinnerware that we missed? We want to hear all about it. Tell us about your favorite finds in the comments below. 

West Elm may be beloved for its stylish mid-century furniture, but don’t forget to check out their kitchen section for some of the best dinnerware around, too. With everything from neutral classics that’ll work in any kitchen to collections covered in gorgeous glazes, you’re sure to find a set you love here.

Williams Sonoma is one of the most popular kitchen retailers around, so it only makes sense that it would have some of the most stunning dinnerware. With everything from understated basics to elaborately decorated sets (their exclusive honeycomb set is one our favorites!), your tablescape will instantly be elevated with one of their sets. 

Walmart is the ultimate one-stop shop for all things home — including dinnerware. While the mega retailer is home to a mix of brands, it’s their home-grown brands that really shine in this department. Brands like The Pioneer Woman have really gone and made a name for itself, with tons of gorgeous dinnerware pieces that have gone on to be lauded by shoppers across the country!

While definitely on the higher end of the cost spectrum, Food52 is a great place to scour if you’re on the hunt for unique dinnerware. Whether you’re looking for sets that mix colors or those that feature interesting detailing and finishes, Food52’s collection is sure to have something that satisfies your eclectic taste. 

If you’re a Le Creuset devotee, there’s no better addition to your cabinet than a set of Le Creuset dinnerware. Available in many of the same colors as its iconic cookware (Cerise pieces to match your Dutch oven? Yes, please!), you will have to invest in these pieces, but like any Le Creuset purchase, you’ll find it’s worth it.

If there’s one place that immediately comes to mind when you think of dinnerware, it’s likely Macy’s. A longstanding go-to for those looking for high-quality pieces at affordable prices, Macy’s is the perfect place to pick up pieces from some of your favorite brands like Lenox, Mikasa, Fiesta, and more.

Like West Elm, Pottery Barn’s name immediately brings to mind its fan-favorite furniture, but its kitchen collection is nothing to scoff at. Featuring pieces that bridge the gap between modern-contemporary and farmhouse, you’ll find an array of elegant pieces that are still approachable for everyday use.  

You may be surprised to find The Home Depot on this list, but you’ll be even more surprised at just how great its selection of dinnerware is once you take a scroll. Featuring sets from beloved brands such as Corelle, Gibson Home, and Pfaltzgraff, feel free to pick up your next set as you pick up the goods for your next kitchen project.

Wayfair is another one of those retailers whose range of items may just surprise you. Far more than just furniture and rugs, Wayfair’s kitchen section is filled with gorgeous dinnerware sets at fair prices. Whether it’s casual dinnerware for everyday use or fine china, Wayfair’s got a set that’s sure to become your next favorite buy. 

It only makes sense that the makers of the internet’s favorite pan is also home to some of the most stylish dinnerware around; after all, you need something to serve those delicious meals on! Like its cookware, Our Place’s dinnerware sets come in an array of bold colors that will liven up your eatery just as much as their pots and pans do.

For those with a love of ceramicware, East Fork is the way to go. Each piece is handmade and hand-glazed, giving it all an authentic, rustic feel that’ll turn these pieces into art — art you’ll look forward to passing down for generations to come. 

You didn’t think we were going to forget Amazon, did you? The mega e-tailer is home to practically every dinnerware brand you can think of. It’s one of the best places for those looking for options, whether you’re looking to invest in a high-end set or pick up an affordable find from a brand you trust like Corelle, Famiware, or Sanger. 

Made In isn’t home to just high-quality cookware. In its Tabletop section, you’ll find loads of great pieces of dinnerware, all culminating in the brand’s collection, “The Tabletop Set.” Featuring a mix of plateware for any and every occasion, each piece is stain-resistant, scratch-proof, and both microwave- and dishwasher-safe, not to mention oven-safe up to 580°F. 

Material is another place beloved for its prepware and cookware, but its dinnerware is just as impressive. Each piece is crafted from natural Korean soils and hand-finished and, as such, is one-of-a-kind and imperfect — meaning no two sets will ever be the same. 

Other than Macy’s and Amazon, Crate & Barrel is one of the first places people turn to when it comes to curating their dinnerware collections. Offering a range of pieces in myriad styles, it’s hard to beat the variety (and prices!) that Crate & Barrel has to offer.
