Everyday dinnerware

I need to buy new every day dinnerware and have been looking on the internet to see what's out there. I really don't want to spend a day shopping going from store to store. I want something that I can use in the microwave, or keep warm in the oven. Something that I can put in the dishwasher too.

I found some gray, simple stuff at IKEA for $20 a set but they are made in China and I'm trying to avoid that if at all possible. I know I might have to spend $20 a plate elsewhere but it's okay as long as it lasts and I like it.

Quality-wise, Villeroy & Boch and Portmeirion look good. Maybe Denby. White is a bit boring but there is no conflict with the food then so perhaps it's a good idea. Potrmeirion is botanical but it does seem sturdy so I could live with the pattern. (I originally wanted something plain.)

So what do you all like? By the way, I am in Chicago.
