Rectangular Serving Plates Reviewed

Serving Platter For Large Dinners

Let's review an option for rectangular serving plates, today. I know, as I write this we haven't even celebrated Halloween yet this year. Before we know it, it will be time to sit down to Thanksgiving Dinner and then in December there will be the Christmas Dinner. Do you have enough serving plates to accommodate those larger portions of food?

I have found a set of three serving plates that will come in mighty handy for those dinners or parties that we often host during the year. What I love about this set is that they do not have a design that will make you feel like you can only use them for one specific holiday. I have always been fond of those wonder old turkey platters with the turkey design on them but they look a little silly if you use them for anything other than Thanksgiving. So, they sit in the cupboard to be pulled out once during the year. That is not very practical is it? 

What I love about this set of three is that you have three different sizes of plates to serve on: small, medium and large. The largest plate is 15.6 inches by 8.8 inches and will serve nicely for a large turkey, ham, or pot roast. The medium size is 13.8 inches by 7.5 inches and will work well with a variety of dishes for the dinner or party. The smallest plate is 12.2 inches by 6.5 inches and is perfect for appetizers or just about anything! 

I also love that they are white in color. There is nothing that will distract from any pattern we might have on our dinnerware. They can be used for any occasion we plan to serve a lot of people and will stack nicely in the cupboard. 

This set of three rectangular serving plates are made of porcelain so that can be used in the freezer or oven and can be washed in the dishwasher. Now, I think that makes them even more practical! 

How about you? Do you think that this set of serving platters would function well for your large gatherings of family and friends during the year?

  1. It does seem like I am forever fighting the need for more serving plates during the holidays. I end up using plates as serving plate, then I need those plates for actual dinners. Therefore, stuff is constantly being washed and shifted around. These flat (no turkey design) platters look like they would be easy to stack and store. I won't set anything on top of my turkey platter in storage. These extra, rather nondescript platters would be perfect, especially since they can be used year round.

  2. That is a great idea and I am thrilled that they are square, white and come in a variety of sizes. I would use these often! Even if I wasn't entertaining they would be a useful addition to my "china". Thanks for a great review, I will have to look into these!

  3. These look very nice. I wouldn't mind adding a set to my kitchenware. I do prefer white as well because as you said it goes with everything. Plus they pop off a colored tablecloth.
