Disposable Plates With Lids
"Every plate is a lid and every lid is a plate," according to Lisa Foss of Pactiv Corporation, the company that manufactures Hefty brand products.
The disposable plates cover food without squashing it yet store like conventional paper plates in the cupboard.
The plates are microwaveable, so food can be heated or re-heated. They come in three sizes which also makes them handy for storing food.
The company sells 9-in. lunch plates, 10-in. dinner plates and 24-oz. bowls that are great for outdoor meals since they're ideal for keeping flies off the food, for transporting meals to hungry work crews in the field, or picnics where people might want to finish their meal later. When the meal is finished, they're great for sending leftovers with guests, for storing leftovers in the fridge, and re-heating food in the microwave.
Serve æn Store products were new on the market last spring and are available at grocery stores and mass merchants in the U.S.
The suggested retail price is $2.69 per package of 20 to 24 plates, depending on size.
