Advantages: The price
Disadvantages: They're abit flimsy
I bought a pack of Tesco Value paper plates a couple of months ago for a birthday. At the moment they are £1.20 for 50 22cm plates- I think they've gone up because I'm sure I paid a pound.
Packaged simply in cellophane they're easy to open but once opened the packet can't be resealed, all paper plates I've had are like that though. Stacked tightly together they do get stuck to each other so need separating. Their 22cm is a good size and average for paper plates.
They are plain white cardboard with a raised ridged edge and although they don't have a shiny surface like the dearer plates they are adequate at holding wet foods for a short period of time.
The plates are flimsy and bend in the middle if overloaded but that's what I'd expect for value, not a problem we just keep a hand underneath when carrying food around on them (at that price you can double up and they still work out cheaper). To be honest they are half the strength of the dearer plates.
Having bought only eight festive plates from Home Bargains for 59p these came in handy for Christmas tea to put the buffet food on etc- they work out alot cheaper too. I jazzed them up with a folded festive serviette on top of the plate, and with me using their plain value cups meant the table matched.
They are easily recycled, I scrape off any leftovers and just pop them in the paper bin (although as has been pointed out in comments, food can't go in the paper recycling- what I should clarify is 'cleaned off' plates with no food waste on them otherwise they go on the fire).
Best of all no washing up!!
Would I recommend? Yes and will be buying them again when this pack is finished.
4 stars from me.
Summary: Great for the price even when doubled up!!
