Plates can be an incredibly versatile piece of tableware. They come in a range of styles, sizes and materials to suit different situations. For everyday occasions, the stunning selection of plates found in the 16-piece stoneware dinner set from the brand Soren is a popular choice. If you're not in the market for a full dinner set refresh, see our collections of separate porcelain and ceramic plates available in the Casa Domani or Chyka Home ranges. If you need an accident-proof option for camping or feeding little ones, we'd recommend a durable melamine plate, such as this dinner plate from Chyka Home.

Plates FAQ

What is a dinner plate?

A dinner plate is a large, round or oval dish used to serve the main course of a meal. It is made of ceramic, porcelain, or glass and may have a raised lip to contain the food. Position your dinner plate at the centre of each place setting during a formal dinner.


What size is a dinner plate?

While dinner plates come in a variety of sizes and styles, a 'standard' dinner plate in Australia measures about 25 cm (10 inches) in diameter.


How many dinner plates do I need?

The number of dinner plates you need in your arsenal will of course depend on the size of your household, and if entertaining, the number of guests. A good rule of thumb is to have eight to twelve 5-piece place settings. This is usually considered enough dinnerware to accommodate for both casual and formal entertaining.
