Ikea Kalas Children's Plates.
I love nothing better than to wander around Ikea, buying things i need and things i didn't even know i needed . Unfortunately the nearest one to me is over 100 miles away , so when visiting the in-laws i take advantage of Ikea at Nottingham being not too far away.
On a trip around 10 years ago now, i purchased 5 packs of the 6 plates , along with the cups, bowls and cutlery of the same design.
The plates i am reviewing are the ones in the picture , as i believe they have a newer design out now.
The plates come in a pack of 6 , and are available for a bargain price of £1. They are all a different colours , blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and turquoise . They are a rounded rectangle shape and measure 19 cm x 16.5 cms and made of a sturdy plastic . The plates are each a whole colour with a pattern of smaller rectangles running round the edge. They are sold as children's plates and they are perfect for them, but doesn't mean to say and adult couldn't use them too .
The only fault i have with the plates i have is that they are very flat , there is no a lip or border around the plate so whilst great for sandwiches and things that are flat and don't move around , they are no good for anything round [ grapes, cherry tomatoes etc] as they just roll around and over the edge . There is probably only a 5 mm difference between the middle of the plates and the edges .
They are microwave and dishwasher safe , and haven't discoloured like some plastic does over time.
I love the kalas range from Ikea, and have had my money's worth 10 times over already . I keep 1 set in the cupboard for everyday use , and 4 sets put away for parties and bbq's . They are excellent for children's parties and 6 for £1 put them on par with character paper plates cost wise , and these can be used year after year.
What i do is use these plates and just buy the serviettes of the chosen party character each birthday we have , it's saved a fortune over the years .
We also use them in the garden, on picnics and take them to the beach , they are lightweight and very easy to store , but strong enough to withstand being dropped and all ours are still going strong .
Perfect plastic plates [ not just for children] just a little flat . 4 out of 5 .
