This bundle of plates came last night, just in time for dinner. My husband and I haven’t bought paper plates for at least a year but I was intrigued by these since they’re made from palm leaves. They’re very sturdy and can easily handle more than the small amount of food we were using them for. Also, unlike paper plates, these are reusable. They can be hand washed and dried immediately for a second use. There is some texture to them, and washing and re-use is only recommended for lightly used plates. We ate Korean pork belly and a fried egg (too saucy and sticky) so the next time we use them I will try washing and see how they hold up. Overall, these are great plates. Each one is a little different than the next lending to more organic and casual place settings if you’re planning to use them around a table. I would definitely get these again.
