So you're looking to spruce up your outdoor dining setup? Well, we are in full support. It's time to say goodbye to wasteful disposable plates and breakable stoneware and say hello to lightweight, durable, and affordable melamine. This is the ideal material for reusable dinnerware because it's much harder and sturdier than plastic. Plus, it has a nicer look to it — more closely resembling the appearance of ceramic plates and bowls. It's also dishwasher safe but important to note that it isn't microwave-friendly. (Can't have it all, can we?)
