This sleek white porcelain plate is hard-wearing and suitable for everyday use, but being designed by Habitat’s in-house team you are assured a distinctive, simple and contemporary look perfect for any table, casual or formal.
Habitat markets these as pasta bowls but they are actually low and shallow enough to work as plates too. Its extra high lip also keeps food from making a bid for freedom over the sides during dinner and, unlike a traditional bowl, the sharp angle of the side makes it easier to get a purchase on your food as you push it against the side. If you have ever lost your peas off the side of your plate, then this is the product for you.
Size: D24 x H4cm
Care: Dishwasher and microwave safe.
What our testers say
Our testers loved this plate for its style and thought it should be filled with a huge chicken salad or pasta bolognaise and wouldn’t look out of place in a restaurant. They thought it looked both classic and modern at the same time. The best bit is that it only costs £6.
Our testers thought this was a great and more subtle alternative to a plate surround if you need one.
We tested it again at Christmas and can confirm it can also hold a massive quantity of food without causing the dreaded gravy overflow!
The downside is that it is quite large and heavy (we can’t wait for a smaller version), and due to the height of the lip, it doesn’t quite fit in a traditional plate rack in a dishwasher, but it’s fine if you get a bit creative with your dish stacking.
Habitat is a design institution. Established by Sir Terence Conran and friends in 1964 when he saw a gap in the market in London for great-looking furniture, lighting and homewares for the everyman. Before he came along, cutting-edge interiors were for the elite and the rest of the population had slim pickings when it came to affordable and fashionable furnishings. Habitat changed all that and was one of the first companies to offer mail-order to customers, which meant everyone in Britain had the ability to get products from Habitat delivered right to their door. Habitat was incredibly pioneering when it first began and has revolutionised the high street’s approach to interiors. What’s more, Habitat somehow manages to create timeless pieces that look great and last for generations, while still being at the cutting edge of creativity to this day.
