Tesco Value Platters
Advantages: they do the job
Disadvantages: nothing special
For my granddaughters birthday party I made a buffet but I didn't want to have the hassle of washing up lots of things afterwards nor did I want to risk my special serving plates being broken so I bought these platters.
They cost me £2.80 for 3, in the pound shop I saw that they had 2 for £1 but thought maybe these would be better quality. Now I think I should have really just gone for the pound shop ones as they are very basic.
They are a decent size serving platter and are foil so they look very basic and simple so great for serving food for parties, nothing fancy that's for sure! They are quite flat but rise up so that they hold items on the platters quite well.
I made sandwiches and found that putting them on these platters were good as the angle of the sides of the plate helped to keep them upright which was very useful!
I didn't re-use them, simply threw them away after use which isn't very ecological friendly but certainly saved me having to wash up!
I think that they are very useful and save time but are extremely basic so I think in future I will probably stick with the pound shop ones seeing as they are as basic as basic can be they can't be any worse.
if you are having a party and want to save time and need serving plates to put your buffet food on then these are perfectly fine. If you're having a more up-market party, however, you may want something a bit more special as these certainly are not special! Fine for a kids' party though!
