Dishware

anyone know where to get reasonably priced dishware. i'm looking for some with the rubber on the bottom to prevent sliding. a friend found a good deal at home goods but i haven't been able to find any.

You could try The Galleyware Company

We just bought inexpensive Corelle from Target, and nonskid placemats. I find the rubber on the bottoms of the dishes too tough to get really clean.

I have heard of folks putting a small bead of clear silicon on the bottoms of their dishes to stop them from sliding.

There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.

My wife is fanatical about spotlessly clean dishes, flatware and cookware . . . sometimes driving me close to the edge with her inspections after I clean up during and after meals. When buying our last boat, we picked out The Galleyware Company service for 8 in a solid Navy blue (our boat's color scheme), during the Spring sale at Defender.



Aside from some knife marks on the plates (have to slice steaks, you know), after 4 seasons of heavy use, they look close to new. The rubber ring bottoms on the bowls, mugs and plates, stay clean if you wash the food stains off right away. Great stuff and stays put on a rocking boat.

Like Eryka we also use Corelle dishes. After 10+ years of living aboard we haven't broken one. They are lightweight and stack well into small places. We usually use placemats on the salon table and they don't slide around.

I also recommend cookware with removable handles that stack into a small area. Our original set was Ingenio by T-fal and they lasted about 5 years and were beginning to wear the nonstick in the pans used every day. We bought a new stainless set at the Annapolis Boat Show last fall. It has one skillet with nonstick surface and the pots are just stainless. The handles recently stopped the "spring action" when opening up the claw to attach to the pan. I need to contact the company about replacement but other than the slight inconvenience of taking two hands to attach the handle we like them.

A couple of caveats regarding dishes.

First, melamine dishes don't tolerate microwaving for long periods of time IIRC.

Second, Corelle is made of tempered glass and you should be careful not to scratch the surface, or it can result in the dish breaking into lots of tiny shards. You aren't supposed to use serrated knives on them for that reason.

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.

I have melamine diskes and I have not, as of yet seen any issues with microwaving them. I have noticed that food seems to stick to them and requires more water to clean.

We left the rubber placemats on my teak table (oiled not varnished yet) for a couple days. The heat in the cabin 'melted' the rubber into the teak. It didn't so much melt as dissolve. Fair warning. I had to sand the table top to remove it.

Hi Suzi, was this the Fagor set? We also bought this set at the boat show last year. HEAVY stainless! Didn't seem so bad at the tent, but my left arm was sore for 2 days after carrying it all the way to the dinghy on Back Creek. We added one of those silicone one-size-fits-all lids for the skillet, the only thing the set didn't have, our pressure cooker (also Fagor) and haven't needed anything else in the galley since. Good stuff!

We found the dealer very easy to work with - ordered new pressure cooker gaskets at the same time as we bought the pans - I'm sure you'll get good support replacing your malfunctioning handle.

Free-

A lot of the Melamine dishes and plates I've seen have warnings on them not to microwave them more than 60-90 seconds or so.
