Hello all,

After many many years (decades) of using old camping pates and silverware, we are updating our pots and pans and dishes. I am curious how many people use "home style" ceramic dishes, mugs, etc. We currently use old plastic plates but we have a complete dish set in our home doing nothing at all. My only concern is them breaking during travel. Any thoughts?

In our home I used Corelle ware. When we started fulltiming I bought a good quality melamine by Pfalzgraff. I still use those daily after 15 years. We recently bought a house in Florida. I can't find a Corelle pattern I like and the other stoneware is much too heavy for me to lift into the cupboards. I found a good quality melamine at a home store and bought 8 place settings. Still looking for Corelle that I like, but I really do like the melamine i bought.

We set up for the summer in one location at our favorite lake so it is as much like home as the stick house. We have some plastic that we use for when visitors come over for dinner but also have some Corelleware for the FW and myself.

We either use Correlle or paper plates. Wife is concerned about plastic plates and ingesting plastic that got cut with knives. We usually use paper plates for dinner, then use the discarded plates to start the campfire after dinner.

What ever you get make sure it is microwavable, mine is not so I still use paper at times to heat or prep food.

More Corelle users here. I like Melamine, but it cannot be used in the microwave. Almost five years of full-timing and we've never broken a Corelle piece. Corelle is also very compact when stacked.

No, they won't break on the road. There's something just not right about eating a New York steak on a paper plate.
