Tesco Value Paper Plates
Advantages: Very cheap
Disadvantages: A little on the flimsy side
We recently had a retirement do for a family friend which was thrown together rather on the hoof and on a budget due to his wife being taken ill just as arrangements were about to be made. It meant that we all pulled together to have a party but needed it to be as cheap and cheerful as possible, I was in charge of providing cups, cutlery and plates and thankfully we have a megastore sized Tesco just up the road so it was the first place I went.
These packs of paper plates are £1.20 for 50 which compared to the other ranges available was an absolute snip. Now as we were literally going to be using these for buffet food before slinging them anyway I was none too worried about the quality. As they were so cheap I actually bought 3 packs despite the fact we were only expecting around 60 guests, this meant we had enough for everyone to use at least 2 plates (one for buffet and one for cake potentially) with a number of spares.
They are pretty flimsy - I mean you get what you pay for here, you would not want to eat any hot food off these really and I would be worried about anything too wet (curry sauce or chilli for instance) because the paper is really quite thin (grease off the buffet food penetrated in a matter of seconds). However, for casual and quickly disposable use they are fit for purpose.
The diameter of these plates is 22cm so they are about the size of an average sideplate, again this is probably ideal for use in an environment where most people are eating standing up, these are easy enough to hold with one hand.
So, I have to say that these were just the ticket for our party and really are a bargain at the price - just don't try and use them for wet food and you should have no problems!
Summary: Bargain paper plates which are great for buffet food.
