Cuisinart 16Pc Jenna Stoneware Set

The reviews I have seen were pretty consistently positive on the looks of this stoneware. However, there are many reports the set is poorly packaged and are often received chipped or broken. Woot is very good about issues like this but still a minor concern. To me a major concern is this set is made in China and I read on one description that it does have lead in it. That kills it for me.
