I have all three. Paper, plastic and stoneware. Paper because when my aunt passed away, she had a small pack which I took. Use it in the microwave sometimes. I have a 4 place setting of plastic which is a holdover from when the kids were small and we had a slide-in camper (I don't know why I still keep it, nostalgia?) and the final is 'retired' from house a mostly complete set of stoneware. I don't mind doing the few dishes that two of us use. I prefer the durability of stoneware, ability to cut meat and not score plastic or rupture paper. I have a plate rack that keeps the plates on their edge, slanted, non-skid shelf liner is the only 'cushion'. We use glass glasses, stoneware mugs/cups. These are inexpensive, especially the coffee mugs which are accumulated freebees from various events and activities. Tableware is stainless. I have some plastic spoons and forks left over from some group activity. These and paper plates will not be replaced when gone. (Should just toss them out, and donate the plastic set to some charity...Lithuanian heritage, just can not bring myself to do it.
