This is not your Mother’s Melamine Dinnerware…
I am sure we all remember the original melamine from our childhoods made in many decorative designs and colors. Our mothers bought them in the 50′s and 60′s so they could be used for outdoor barbeques by kids and adults. (well before the paper plate revolution) The function of melamine was a great concept although the styles and designs left something to be desired. Well, the Melamine revolution is back but this time, they can be made to look just like regular stoneware and they are beautiful! The thickness and colors are so close to quality stoneware you would be hard pressed to tell the difference without picking them up. If you have ever loaded a dishwasher with a full set of stoneware, you know why the weight difference is so important! Also, they are as unbreakable as ever. No more throwing away an entire set of dishes because 1 or 2 have chips or cracks.
The styles we have available start with this beautiful Medallion set which has two plate sizes available as well as a large tray for serving. You can actually feel the texture in the melamine and the colors are so vibrant. Coming soon we have Tuscan Sun and Coral Sandstone styles with accessories like chip and dip trays and matching serving bowls.
Also new are Tritan plastic-glassware (I know it is an oxymoron) that is made with a new material that doesn’t get scratched in the dishwasher! Unlike normal acrylic “glasses” these are wine and drink glasses that are clear as glass but have the ability to be washed in the dishwasher without all those horrible scratches. They can also be dropped over and over without breaking. In colors that match the melamine sets, these are also perfect for everyday or fancy barbeque parties outdoors.
