Yes. The good stuff isn't any harder to wash than the everyday and it
should lift your spirits to see it on the table. You/we deserve to use
the good stuff and if it breaks, so what? Life is too short to "save"
things for later.
Most of the next generation wants contemporary stuff, not the
traditional styles most of us and our elders liked so Ed is right,
it'll be donated to Goodwill or sold for pennies when we are gone.
