Arcopal opal is reinforced thanks to a special heat treatment called tempering, which makes it up to 3 times more shock-resistant than other materials.

Arcopal opal can withstand sudden variations of 135C: it is safe to transfer the dishes directly from the refrigerator to the microwave.

Arcopal opal is a non-porous material, which prevents bacteria from accumulating in it, making it easy to clean and hygienic.

Arcopal opal products are dishwasher safe. They retain their decoration and their shine day after day, wash after wash.

Dishwasher safe.
Microwave and oven safe.
Elegant and refined.

2794991.jpgThere's a one-star review complaining that Amazon describe the plates as "oval, not round" (in their main header), just so you're aware!

Here's an informative review of the 12pc set, the 18pc set reviews aren't that useful: amazon.co.uk/Arc…PB4

Great if you have any difficulties lifting

I bought these as a much needed replacement for some older Arc dinner plates that had become chipped over many years use.

Glass plates are much lighter than standard dinner plates, which is very useful for people with chronic health conditions. The simple design makes for easy cleaning. Being thin they require less space for stacking. Microwave safe.

Fully opaque and in my opinon they are presentable. They do not scratch or stain.

Slightly smaller than a standard British plate, and with a wide rim, you might find them restricting at times. Less restricting than the older flat rimmed design. Corelle (USA) make larger glass plates, but they are very expensive to buy in the U.K. Another alternative might be an enamel plate

You cannot buy replacement dinner plates seperately** without buying more side plates. However, given how inexpensive this set is, it is hardly a deal breaker.

Overall
======
Inexpensive, space saving, practical plates. Almost ideal for those with weaker arms. Not as durable as enamel.

**Not strictly true, as I can see individual white plates for sale on Amazon - not sure about the patterned options.

The same seller also has this patterned Arcopal 18 Piece Set Adriel, £18.28 + Free Delivery: amazon.co.uk/Arc…ZG/

Another helpful review, for the Adriel design:

Lovely quality and great price.

A beautiful set made of tempered glass that looks and feels like porcelain. I like that it is light and thin but tough and chip resistant, more durable than ceramics or porcelain / bone china. The pattern is lovely, colours as in the picture, and the whole set can be dressed up for a formal occasion as well as down for casual dinner. On the bowls the pattern is set back from the edge by about an inch. There is a tiny Arcopal label printed into the pattern, only noticeable if you look for it. The price is great for the quality, delivery was prompt, and everything was well packaged. Very happy with this.

32042101-Ki1B7.jpgArcopal Veronica 18 Piece Dinner Set is also £18.28 (bit chintzy for me!) amazon.co.uk/Arc…LNZ
Veronica is apparently a "Limited Edition", and one of their original designs: arcopal.co.uk/Lim…ion
32042101-32MwX.jpgLuminarc Adonia 18 Piece Set for £18.28, too amazon.co.uk/Lum…T3K
32042101-MsZiU.jpgMore Arcopal from this Amazon seller, here: amazon.co.uk/s/r…pal (though they also have various Luminarc and Arcoroc items, owned by the same company, the Arc Group).

Luminarc and Arcopal appear to be for the domestic market. Arcoroc seems to be the Arc Group's "Food Service Professional" range arc-intl.com/eng…nds ).

Cheers, MSK. I had no idea IKEA offered a Corelle rival - I very rarely get to visit stores, but I could see some caravanning/camping forum members discussing all the "tough tableware" options, and this one cropped up.

The IKEA tempered glass range is OFTAST, if others haven't heard of it. 50p a piece is a stonking price!! (range seems to be, 15cm Bowl, 20cm Deep Plate, 25cm Plate, 19cm Side Plate).

Where did you spot the black ones - could you post a link please?
Never had any idea plates could be so complicated

I can see two Black Luminarc ranges called Harena and Carine (though Carine rather bizarrely seems to come with both white and black plates in its set).

This isn't a competitive price compared to the others, but I can see the Harena 19pc Dinner Set For Six, at £32.99 delivered here:

Heat for great info, also for those near a branch of 'MahaHome' they do some Luminarc ranges at good prices, they have a website too though free delivery needs a £40 spend:
