Plates, Mugs, Bowls etc

Billangiep posed a question about cocktail glasses and rather than totally derailing the poor buggers thread........

On our PB we had a set of iGuzzini melamine dinnerware that was just great. All square , so stowed really well, stacked easily, and even the dinner plates had a good lip that prevented spillage and was of such a good quality that we were well satisfied with them. Also kept some chinese melamine rice bowls in different sizes for eating on the move.

Stupidly I let them all go when we sold her thinking that it would be easy to replace. Big mistake you stoopit marsupial you.

Guzzini have discontinued what we had and the quality of melamine that I've found thus far is total crap.

Whats everyone else use ?

twd , we use Corelle by Corningware...has proved to be pretty tough for the boat, haven't broken anything yet (8yrs). I see they also have a line of square plates and bowls. May solve a storage issue?
Bill,

I bought my melamine dinnerware from Target on sale. It also has the rice bowl style bowls with the very high sides. But I recall my Mom having melamine plates for us kids and what I have now isn't the same quality. Food tends to stick to the melamine and takes a bit more water to clean.

Billangiep-

I wouldn't recommend Corelle. It is tempered glass and if you scratch it, it can break into nasty sharp shards... which you really don't want on a boat. Cleaning it up is a basic nightmare.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

We use stainless steel plates, bowls, mugs, etc. Easy to clean - never break - and in an emergency we can cut them into washers and backing plates

The corelle stuff is of interest but as SD says when it does go it goes big time. On the other hand corelle dropped onto timber floor boards should be OK. I've not seen the square range but will head off and have a gander. Thanks for the heads up Bill.

We are at the point where we are looking to go restaurant/cafe/railway station grade white china for anchor/moored mode and keep some of the melamine bowls and mugs for offshore. Sure we will inevitably break some of the china stuff but restaurant gear is pretty solid and inexpensive to replace.

Stainless steel ? What's that like to eat off ? $$$$$ ?To be honest my favourite method of disposal is overboard. When we are at anchor I throw all our dirty plates and cutlery into a bucket and hang overboard. Tend to lose the odd knife etc when I drain the bucket. If I started losing stainless dinnerware overboard Ms Wombat would kill me.

It does cost a little more than the plastic stuff yes - but what the heck - you and the missus are worth it aren't you ? Might as well spend it while you're here cause the dollars don't help when you're dead...

I like the mugs because they are double-walled which gives them a bit of insulating ability.

When I start losing stainless steel overboard she may not think I am worth it !
