These are affordable, beautiful, and ultimately disposable plastic dish-plates for serving or gift giving.
When hubby brought these home this morning I knew that I had to review them. We are not a fan of disposable items. We recycle like crazy and rarely use plastic, throwaway tableware. However, one of hubby’s big joys is to make some very special cookies that he bakes to give away to people from time to time. He’s getting ready to make another batch to give away for Christmas and these are his choice to pack the gift cookies on this year.
These are heavier than usual (for a plastic plate) plastic with a metallic coating in red and green. There is a molded over lip for extra strength. You could load these right up, even with a heavy salad or fudge and they would not twist and spill. He says that he found them in an end display with the seasonal items. Of course they are shiny and gaudy, but that’s what Christmas is for! Seriously, these are quite good looking. Both the red and green are just a little darker shade than crayon red and green, but not quite as dark and cranberry or forest. The backs are black.
I really like giving and getting food gifts on these kinds of fairly sturdy plates/ dishes because 1) they are sturdy 2) there is no plate to return 3) they can be washed and used again to pay a gift forward!
The only drawbacks would be that they are ultimately throwaways, and not recyclable. They may be prone to splitting on the edges; not sure, but the extra rigidity might lend itself to that. And the edge is just a little bit sharp. I can believe that you could accidentally cut yourself on it if you hit it just right.
They are made by American Greeting (the card company). They call them a “deep dish bowl.” Each is 9.25 inches in diameter and 1.25 inches deep. Hand wash only. Do not use in microwave.
Made in USA.
