Concrete Plates

Two of my favorite materials: concrete and wood. What’s not to love about these concrete plates by Nir Meiri. Albeit, they have got to be heavy… but nobody’s talking about throwing out the china. No matter the food displayed, it is sure to provide the perfect accent, completing the combination of textures and natural colors. Just tell your Greek brother in-law to be careful where he’s smashing plates with this one. OPA!!

    Well, it's porous so there's lots of places for bacteria to grow. I would also be careful not to destroy your knives if you have to cut anything on it. Looks cool though.

    useless tbh as any thing other than a one time gimmic…
    porous and hard to clean.

    I don't think it's got long-term practicality, but i definitely like the design.

  • Eh, not that great in terms of practicality. Going to parrot a bit here but one time use and some eccentric flair is all it's good for. Very interesting idea though.

    I think these are great, just not for food. I could definitely see these by my door for shoes etc.

    This is all fine and dandy but what will be a problem for sure is stains. From food, from oils from anything. Concrete needs to be mixed in a special way and sealed in a special way to not stain. Only one US company can do that. Every body else stil uses topical or penetrating sealers which work ok but do not provide a 100% stain-proof concrete.

    You cannot expect your concrete to look as new but a power washer can reduce the stain to a larger extent and if you’re lucky,
    even remove them altogether. Worse yet, once these deposits get on your white laundry,
    they can be nearly impossible to clean. Put water on it liberally, unless needless to say it’s a material
    that should not be touched by water, and then after a whilst dry it.
