Dish Set? Here’s how to choose the perfect one

Condividi su

You have recently married and have recently started living in your new home: everything smells new, and everything it still seems like a dream after returning from your honeymoon. The first thing you decide to do is invite that couple of friends to dinner who couldn’t come to your wedding reception. Make a menu, go shopping, get all the ingredients and, back home, start cooking. Which dish service to use? A modern dish service ? A square set for a dinner with oriental flavors? A dish service in porcelain or a simple one, perhaps colored, in ceramic?

It may seem trivial, but choosing the dish service is not as simple as one might think, because it has to adapt the most sometimes to the various situations that arise. Therefore in the article we will take care of providing advice that is useful in choosing the perfect dish service .

Keeping in mind that personal tastes are the key element in choosing a dish service and therefore if you prefer one with more classic lines than one with more modern features, there are generally four variables to pay attention to: the use we will make of it, the material, the design and the price. / span>


When we choose a plate service the first question to ask is: how do I want to use it? In fact, in a kit worthy of respect, at least two dish services :


  • one to use every day

  • one to use on the most important occasions
  • In the first case, in choosing the dishes to use daily we should ask ourselves questions of a nature practice: can it be easily damaged? Can it be used in the microwave oven? It is very expensive? Can I find a similar one if one or more plates should be damaged?

    In the second case instead, the choice of plates to be used on important occasions falls more on factors related to elegance, refinement, the design of the dish itself. Isn’t it nice that during the first dinner at home the newlyweds show off a set of dishes that itself becomes a furnishing accessory?


    The choice of material is also an important element to consider when choosing a plate service and it is a concept bound to the use one. In fact the materials most used for the dish service are:


    • ceramics

    • la china

    • the plastic
    • The choice of a ceramic plate service is usually associated with daily use of a dish service , as it is a fairly durable, modest and therefore inexpensive material.

      The choice instead of a porcelain plate service is usually associated with use that it is made on special occasions because it is a very precious material, delicate and also very expensive.

      The choice of a plastic plate service instead relates to a completely modern taste , which prefers practicality and resistance.


      The design of a plate service is relative to the choice of colors, sizes, and the shape of the plates . Nowadays there are an infinite number of types of dishes , and even if everything depends on the taste of the buyer, there are still “basic rules” also in the choice of shape and color. For example, a more classic style prefers a flat with sober, delicate and preferably white lines, while a contemporary style imposes very few guidelines: it goes from plates from squared lines to colorful plates in glass to the dish with oriental lines. Obviously another factor that falls within the design subcategory and that is fundamental to consider is relative to the accessories that accompany the dish service : this type of glass matches the dish ? If I choose dishes from the square lines what kind of cutlery should I choose? Can I associate this wine glass with this dish with classic lines? There are some brands that offer a complete plate service and therefore combined, but those who want to associate plate service and accessories in a completely personal way must, in principle, pay attention to the style you want to give to your table and rely on your good taste.


      Another important element that must be taken into consideration when assessing the plate service to buy is relative to the amount that was decided to use. There are cheap food services , sets of dishes very expensive, sets of unique dishes, and it is therefore necessary to keep in mind what the priorities are : for example, if I decide to use a porcelain plate service every day, I have to do it with the knowledge that if the dish is broken by accident, buying it back can be quite expensive.

      It may seem trivial, but choosing a plate service is not always so simple and as immediate as you can think. We therefore hope to have provided useful advice to all those who are going to make this purchase.
