The Deal: Melamine dinnerware at Sur La Table

June 17, 2010 | 11:14 am


This colorful dinnerware made me do a double-take.

It may look like expensive heavyweight Italian pottery, but it's not.

The shatter-resistant pieces are actually made of melamine. On sale for 30% off at Sur La Table, the outdoor collections are a great alternative to the socially inappropriate paper plates at poolside parties and picnics at the Bowl.

Dinner plates, normally $9.95 each, are now $6.96. Salad plates and bowls, formerly $7.95 apiece, are now $5.56. Rectangular serving tray, regularly $24.95, is now $17.46. A large salad bowl for potlucks, normally $19.95, is now $13.96, and an oval platter, usually $19.95, is now $13.96. Another design is available in yellow. All of the pieces are dishwasher safe.

For locations or more information: www.surlatable.com or (800) 243-0852.
