Which paper plates do I need?
Are you stocking up the breakroom or preparing for an event? You can take the hassle out of cleaning with an assortment of paper plates. Try serving meals on heavy-duty paper plates in sizes ranging from 9" to 13", and dish out decadent desserts on small paper plates that are just 6" or 7". Dixie® paper plates and other brands have durable coatings that resist knife cuts and liquid soak-through so everyone can fully enjoy a meal of their choice, and many brands have prints that can add a festive flair to almost any occasion. Are you worried about your impact on the environment? You can choose paper plates made from recycled content or plant-based materials that are compostable where facilities exist.
Can you microwave paper plates?
From lunchtime to that much-needed break, a microwave might be the most convenient place to heat up your food in the office. Just like paper towels, wax paper and parchment paper, paper plates are generally considered safe to use in a microwave, unless otherwise stated on the packaging. The caveat lies in the design. For example, floral paper plates accented with foil could spark inside the microwave, leaving you with more than just burnt food. Whether you're a hostess celebrating a special occasion, a professional gamer fueling up for the battle ahead or just restocking the breakroom, consider microwavable paper plates that help make reheating simple.
