Dinnerware Sets Buying Guide
Dinnerware sets are suitable for everyday use or that special dinner party you’re planning to have! You can buy them in sets of several pieces; from a 2-piece set to a 42-piece set. These sets are made from glass, ceramic, melamine but some are made from crystal. You can save the expensive ones for dinner parties and special occasions. If you have a large family, then you can also opt for these sets in a more durable and less expensive material.
Dinnerware sets can contain a charger or buffet plate, small side plates, cheese plates, dessert plates, large dinner plates, medium pasta type bowls, small side salad bowls, coasters and side plates, martini cups, starter cups and dessert cups. There are more sophisticated and complete sets and more basic sets, depending on your needs.
- Ceramic dinnerware sets are ideal for elegant presentation of food. Ceramic sets are versatile and have a great look and feel. From the smallest cup to the biggest casserole, you can use these ceramic pieces with confidence in the microwave, dishwasher and freezer.
- Glass dinnerware sets are aesthetic and stylish in look and design. Glass dinnerware sets are ideal for parties and to present as gifts. Also available are coloured glass dinner sets. These glass sets are contemporary, high quality but are bit expensive compared to other materials. They are microwave proof, heat resistant and are durable. The only problem with them is that unless you are very careful, they are not suited for everyday use.
- Melamine dinnerware sets are exclusively designed to be food safe and hygienic. They too are dishwasher safe just like ceramic sets. They are of lightweight design and are stackable thereby space saving and compact. Colourful melamine plates are great for mealtimes, snacks and picnics. Melamine sets are suitable when children dine as they are not easily breakable.
- Porcelain dinner sets are the most expensive sets you’ll find. They are microwave, oven, freezer and dishwasher safe. They do not break easily as they are baked at very high temperatures when crafted, giving them the strength.
