More Amazon deals on "looks-like-real" disposable tableware (great Early-Bird Pesach finds!)


I've been buying Reflections plastic "looks-like-real-silverware" disposable flatware for years now, and I decided that this Pesach, I was due for a change in the way my table looked, so I did a little research online.  The problem with all the other "looks-like-real-silverware" patterns that I found was that either they got crummy online reviews or they were so much more expensive than the Reflections flatware.

Then I discovered this set:  160-piece Decor Hammered Effect Design Plastic Silverware, for $12.50 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping, even less expensive than Reflections. This set got 4.3 out of 5 stars over 8 customer reviews. Oh yeah.

I instantly fell in love with the "hammered metal" look of the handles (and if you were fortunate enough to get in this hammered plates deal last week, wow, what a nice texture match-up!), but I feel the need to point out, the quantity breakout is a little unusual to me:  60 forks, 40 spoons, 40 knives and 20 teaspoons.  So this is basically fork/knife/spoon service for 40, with 20 optional fish/salad forks and 20 optional dessert spoons.  I guess given that not everyone goes for fish or dessert (and there are lots of Yom Tov meals where I skip serving a fish course all together), I can easily make this work. I bought two sets for Pesach, because I have a feeling once the word is out on this new set and it becomes popular, the price is going to zoom up. (Happily, there are no quantity limits on this set.)

(If you do buy this, I have a special request:  please let me know how you like it, after you use it?  I really want to compare notes.)




Of course, in any post on fancy "looks-like-real" disposables, I must include my regular favorite, 160 piece set of Reflections plasticware for $13.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Reflections are now an Amazon #1 Best Seller, and they have 4.7 out of 5 stars over 1,008 customer reviews.  The 160 pieces include 80 forks, 40 spoons and 40 knives.  (FYI, sometimes Costco has Reflections for less than the Amazon price, though I haven't seen it there for a while, but it doesn't hurt to call and check.)

Finally, Amazon has got this 60-count pack (6 sets of 10 plates) of Simcha Collection Dainties 7" Heavyweight "looks-like-real-china" plastic disposable plates for $16.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (28 cents per plate).  Remember, these are 7", which means they are dessert- or appetizer-sized.  What I liked about these plates is that their design is simple enough to integrate nicely with lots of other white and/or silver patterns.  I'm thinking of using these to put under the (real) wine glasses at our seders this year.
