Good thing you put in "almost unbreakable"! Because when they do break there are many, many shards and very sharp. Almost undetectable in your skin and very hard to get out. Been there and I think the scars are gone now as that was around 2001.

When I was trrying to decide... I weighed my corelle plates and then out of curiosity I weighed my enamelware plates I have collected over the years... they weighed the same plate for plate... so I thought ...I'll just use the blue with white spattered enamelware. I don't put it in the microwave, I do carry paper plates for that and quick lunches. I can use a plate as a skillet cover and if needed, I can cook on them with propane. Most everything else is a hodge podge from the house extras, I did buy a couple of extra corning ware soup mugs with lids for heating up stuff in the microwave. A can of beans will fit nicely into one and I can put the lid on and stick it into the fridge for later leftovers.

We went with mostly paper so we didn't have to spend much vacation time doing chores

my DW said I could get whatever I wanted, since she was "retired" and she planned on ME doing the dishes

I love that blue and white (spatter) enamel ware! I saw red and white and green and white at cabelas. Never thought of it, am I correct when I say you cant microwave it? Its tin or steel underneath the enamel correct?
