Quality has chg'd now a BAD value

These paper plates used to be the best, but not any more! I always purchased heavy duty because they held up. My husband picked up a pkg yesterday, and when I saw them on the counter I asked why he bought the cheap ones?? He said he bought heavy duty. I checked the pkg they came out of and it said 'heavy duty'?? Not! I still had some leftover from a package I purchased a while back that also said 'heavy duty'. The new pkg plates are thinner, not as fluted and even the paper it is made out of is different -- it's not as shiny so I assume they aren't coated. Translation -- we are being sold the cheap ones that you have to use 2 or 3 at one time because they don't hold up. I guess Walmart changed it's supplier or the supplier went to a cheaper paper and processing method. Makes me wonder what other 'Great Value' products have changed?


Heavy duty paper plates

I am busy hate doing dishes so the heavy duty paper plates the best. Walmart had the best price


Good value coated paper plates

Yes these are what other brands call coated paper plates. They have a slight gloss so are not so absorbant and weak as plain non-coated plates. They are made in a decent weight paper. I first bought these in the store a few months ago where I could see that the plates are in fact coated. The one's I purchased in the store were more moulded at the edges with nice deep scallops just like a pie crust, and they fit easily within standard paper plate holders. I really liked that. They were not too large for the frame like many paper plates are. But they stuck together way too much. It was quite difficult to separate to single plates. The ones I just received from my online order are much less moulded- a flatter plate like all the other brands out there...nothing special. Because of this, they are weaker for holding heavy items and wider in diameter so need to squish them a bit to fit in the plate holder notches. Without the plate holders they would not be as strong as the ones I had bought at the store that I really liked. That said, they don't stick together badly anymore, so that's good. It would be ideal if the plates had both the more moulded edges AND not stick together.


What happened?

These used to be heavy duty, but not any longer. What happened? These are exactly like cheap paper plates, not heavy duty at all. They are thin and flat and you have to use 3-4 to equal the previous depth. They also are missing the coating that helps block grease. Not worth paying extra!


Heavy Duty Plates aren't heavy duty

Sometimes the plates really are heavy duty and sometimes they're not. These were the flimsy cheap version and I had to return them
