We made and ate off hundreds of prototypes for dinner plates before landing on this form. With just a hint of a lip, these plates are the for-a-lifetime purchase you've been looking for. Unlike most handmade stoneware, East Fork dinner plates stack neatly and fit easily into standard dishwasher racks.
After countless field tests, we can confidently say that our dinner plate is equally perfect for showing off slices of your prized holiday roast as it is for keeping a bacon-egg-and-cheese off your bedspread the morning after a few too many. "In designing our dinnerware, it was really helpful having a service industry background. Things like whether your hand can easily go underneath the lip of the plate when picking up from the pass, or if you walked a plate from the kitchen to the table did it have enough of a lip for sauce not to slosh, but was it flat enough to comfortably cut meat without having to scrape your knife up against the rim -- all those little details were really heavily considered."
