For the past four years, we’ve enjoyed using these Italian dishes. Unfortunately, they are not microwave safe and we have lost a few over time. I had begun to feel like we were always burning our hands and running out of dishes!
Over time I had supplemented this set with dishes from Target and dollar stores, but that was only a bandage solution.
I’d seen a great selection of dishes at the Dollar Tree and thought I’d give them a chance, since they are dishwasher and microwave safe. I liked the clean, modern shape of the dishes and of course, the price was right. I got 10 sets of plates, bowls, salad plates, and mugs for $40. You really can’t beat that. I couldn’t even get stuff at Goodwill for that price.
I got home and began to remove the tags from the dishes and lo and behold, what did I find under those tags?
I checked the price of these dishes on the Ikea website and found them to run from $2-3 each. I am quite pleased with this find.
The new dishes go nicely with my tea glasses.
We enjoyed our corned beef, salad, and smashed cauliflower on our new dishes. I think everything tastes better on pretty, new dishes.
So, if you need dishes, check out the Dollar Tree! I am so glad I did.
