Interestingly, I am in the process of trying to match these plates with others available as separate items, as half of my Metro white dinner and salad plates [3 sets], also purchased from Canadian Tire about 2 yrs ago, have cracked and turned brown under the glaze, or chipped. I did email to the Debbie Travis website and received a reply, with apologies that I was having trouble with the product and to check with Canadian Tire. Of course, they are no longer stocked.
I just did find 3 open stock dinner plate styles that are similar enough in colour and appearance, at Bowring, and they are on sale right now. I have had no problem with the Metro cups or bowls...
With all the complaints, it is clear that the plates are defective, and I too feel that Debbie Travis should stand behind her product or at least have knowledge of where replacements are available.
