Anti-dish breakers?

We just bought a bunch of dishes for our boat.
We got the Corning where. So it is not supposed to break but you know we can and I will so I would like to help prevent that. Our galley cupboards do not have any separate places for dishes, bowels etc.
How is a good way to store them so when healing, or in seas whatever they do not bang around?
In some boats I see the separators, like the one I drew in the pic.
Any place I can buy these, I have not found them. I could make them I suppose, any drawings?
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Chip

Hi Chip,

If I'm not mistaken, you purchased Cornings Pyroceram plates.

Unless the technology has changed since I've used it, in the foodservice industry, I would not want this stuff on my boat.

While it's true, that pyroceram is durable and micro-wavable when this stuff does break it shatters, almost explodes into a million pieces of very sharp chards. I would recommend you leave this stuff at home, and find some nice plastic ware. If you are against using plastic, then I think you are better off with a traditional china plate with a clay bisque that is glazed. China will break and chip but not shatter like the pyroceram.

There is an article on these dishes in Cruising World 2009 May that is informative.
Now mater plastic or not we want to keep the dishes, bowels etc from moving around.
Ideas on the separators?
Thanks,
Chip

Not cheap, but you could get something like this or make it yourself


Teak Dish & Cup Holder

I highly recommend Melamine Dinnerware, its really not that expensive IMO for what you get, great quality, non skid bottom, and looks nice on the boat BTW, They ship fast, I ordered mine in they were here in less than 48 hrs!

Hi Chip,

I don't get cruising world but Corning dishes have been around since the apollo space missions.

I would suggest finding or building a box for them that allows them to be stored flat. There are no dimensions on your drawing and it's 2D I can't tell if it's a box or a design to store them on edge.

Since this is pretty much a tempered glass plate, the weakest point is the edge, so I wouldn't store them on edge. Most dinner plates are 9" , but the corning might be a little larger. You would need to stack them, measure the height of the stack and the circumference and find or build a box for them. I might line it with something like neoprene? or a thin closed cell foam.

I've seen boxes like this at boat shows, and you might find them in some china stores.

If you use the teak dish and cup holder T37Chef shows above, just get some weather stripping and afix pieces on the bottom of each plate to keep them from rattling.

The above ideas will work for the plates but I don't know what you should do about the bowels.

The Correll (however it's spelled) we have on our boat came from my wife's father's..

... boat. It outlived 2 of their boats, life in the kitchen, life in our kitchen, and life on our boat. Yes, it can break and when it does it's a mess, but you need to drop it on something hard, like a ceramic tile floor, from a distance. Difficult to do on a boat, but easy to do in food service.

Personally, I hate washing plastic dishes. It seems like it takes longer and takes more water. They won't take as much abuse in general. It seems like a picnic plate. Does anyone have plastic plates in there homes, these days? Perhaps.

Of course, even for plastic plates I would make a provision to keep them from moving too much.

I have Corelle as well and it has proven very durable as well as being more pleasant to use than plastic. And it is not expensive either.
