Quality Melamine Tableware & Dinnerware

Melamine and plastic tableware has come a long way in terms of quality and style. With the naked eye, you may not be able to tell the difference between porcelain, ceramic or melamine plates, cups and bowls. Plastic and melamine products are a regular feature in restaurants and cafes as they have proven to be a wise long-term investment. Melamine, in particular, is extremely hard wearing and almost indestructible. Even when dropped, it is unlikely to chip or break. 

Why choose melamine over porcelain or ceramic?


Every establishment must assume that accidents will happen from time to time. Using melamine plates, bowls and drinkware eliminates the need to replace products every time something is dropped. Melamine is also highly resistant to scratches.

Heat Resistant

You won’t have to worry about serving up a hot bowl of soup and warning the customer ‘not to touch the bowl’. Melamine has natural heat resistant properties that keep the exterior cool. A perfect option for family dining.

Design and Colours

Whatever type of establishment you have, you’ll find quality melamine and plastic products to suit. As mentioned, today’s melamine crockery can look almost the same as traditional ceramic and porcelain products and comes in a variety of colours and designs. Melamine manufactured by JAB features vintage look melamine as well as classic dining varieties. 

Ideal for Indoor and Outdoor Dining

Being sturdy and strong makes melamine and plastic plates ideal for both indoor and outdoor dining. The array of bright colours will perfectly match a casual outdoor setting while classic white will suit more formal dining.

Elegant and Affordable

You won’t have to spend a fortune to find a design that fits your venue. While melamine may not be the preferred choice for a Michelin star restaurant it certainly has its place in fine dining. You also get the benefit of a long-lasting product that won’t easily chip or break. Elegant, affordable and practical.  

Dishwasher Safe

It may seem like a small benefit but having a product that is stain resistant and can be cleaned (on either rack) in the dishwasher makes a big difference to a commercial kitchen.  

Food Safe

Is melamine food safe? Yes. It is important to note that melamine (like most plastic tableware) is not designed to be microwaved or placed in the oven.
