I halved the weight of my plates and crockery thanks to your suggestion to get malamine plates and cups etc...

I didn't think it would be such a big defference but it's huge. Probably 60% lighter now.

Carting the gear around in the Coaser bus isn't a big problem but Heidi will love it that the box it's in is sooooo much lighter now.

Thank.

Flappa,
Go to Clints or the warehouse or whatever they are called in your area and buy the seconds at about $1 a pop and it works out cheap.
I made the mistook of bying the genuine stuff from B.B.Q.s Galore and paid big time about $6 a pop, my mate went to clints and came away with the same stuff for $1 a pop. Just as good as mine and I'm miffed.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

If you are lucky you might still be able to pick up a full set of melamine plates and cups from Ray's Outdoors (if one is nearby) usually you pay $6.45 per plate. Rays (definitely in Sydney) have them on sale at the moment for $1 each. I replaced mine 3 weeks ago and am going in Sat fo a second set for a mate

I bought 4 trays 30cm x 22cm for $8.00 the Reject Shop (Chadstone) for eating straight off instead of plates. They are rectangular and eating off your lap will be easy.

From a Hot Potato Shop (nameless Al cheapo shop) I bought a further 4 round dinner plates (for bread and butter plates), 4 mugs and 2 bowels for $23.00.

Total of $31.00 is beatable in price but I got exactly what I wanted.

I eat BIG so the largest oval dinner plate is smallish in size compared to the trays, and the trays have the added benefit of having 10mm sides which will stop the sausages rolling off after a few beers.

And they don't break when you drop them! :)

Glad you're pleased with them. As someone else mentioned; Clints or The Warehouse usually have them - They are not genuine Melamine but that technology has been around long enough for every one else to be pretty good at it too.

I have broken the odd one - because I pack them on top of each other they tend to take a hell of a battering on 4WD tracks so I have bought a couple of spares of each plate and bowl - but, in general they are very robust.

When camping in winter and the temperature is below about 10 deg C I usually stack two plates and serve dinner on the top one - it stays hotter a bit longer that way.

Jeez Musty. Just give your bin lid a scrub and take that instead. You'll get heaps more tucker on it and it has the curled ups sides;>)

Steve it's just not fair to think of another (better I think) comeback line after I've laready posted one.

BUT...

Why would I need to scrub the bin lid before I ate off it?

Lol.

Why do you need to shift it to eat it . . .

Just eat it straight off the BBQ plate.

Doesn't go cold , and you keep toasty warm in the process.
