Haven’t discussed this in a while, have we.

Feels like it was last week.


The only food I warm plates for are croissants as they best when they are hot enough to melt the butter straight away and on a cold plate they loose their heat far too quickly.

a lot of time i can’t be bothered warming the food itself you think i’m going to warm the plate


Could strike a happy medium and just warm the pizza scissors.


still absolutely not a thing

No, only after

In the sink, using hot water?

You got it!

Depends. Are your plates mostly made of water?

A friend who’s a chef warms his plates when I’ve been round his place. But it’s enough for me to co-ordinate all the various pans and stuff to manage to warm the plates as well.

This only counts as warming the plate in a microwave if you’re using a first, sacrificial ready meal to warm the plate that you serve the second, actual ready meal on.

I hope yor happy with yourselves all you plate warmers are adding to global warming, but I suppose its worth for the sensation of not having to touch a cold or tepid plate, yor as bad the globe heads!


Proper pisses me off when mum does it if they get a takeaway in. Never lasts long enough to go cold, and all you do is burn ya fuckin’ fingers
