The Great Plate Review and Giveaway!
There are few options in the picnic plate type product area, and for a member of a barbecue loving family this can be limiting. Since I am all about truth and disclosure around here I will share a story that was quite embarrassing. I am sure we all have done the precarious plate and cup dance at a BBQ. When my husband and I were dating, it was one of my first large-scale family functions (imagine about 30 people witnessed my moment) and I was doing this precarious balancing act when I tripped and down I went, plate over cup. Needless to say I was embarrassed and NEVER want a repeat of that event and lucky for me I may never have to with my latest discovery: The Great Plate!
I came upon The Great Plate while watching Food Network recently (this is how I expand my culinary wings – steal ideas from the professionals). My first thought when I saw these was that fateful afternoon six years before and how this product could have saved some embarrassment. Given my propensity for dropping plates and cups, I reached out to them and they were very gracious and sent me a couple of plates for review. I chose yellow and blue plates, as we are always and forever Charger fans.
The first thing that I noticed about the plates was how sturdy they were, and not made of cheap thin plastic. This plate can stand being dropped and will not break; it also flies and floats. The color is bright, vibrant and in the center sits a bowl that almost fits 8 oz worth of sauce or soup.
I loved that I was able to use this and place it on the couch and still have my drink and my snack near me without fear of the cats knocking it over when they inevitably jumped down.
