I have a lovely melamine set but the cups stain easily inside and my brew just never seems the same so we ditched them in favour of proper cups, plates and even glasses, I store them in the bottom cupboard of the Dandy and they travel well if put away carefully. The melamine plates and acrylic glasses are a lot lighter and with little ones around much safer but do you take along a couple of real mugs and glasses just for adults?

What do you prefer

We find melamine stains like mad, and china ones would probably get broken, so we've got some light weight unbreakable plastic plates, they've not broken yet. Laughing But we do prefer the plates and cups at home.

We must sort out the cutlery drawer, we often end up playing cutlery roulette, it can be a problem eating cereal with a fork, although sausage and mash with a spoon is ok. lol!

I don't think you can put a brew in anything better than a real mug/cup. We've tried enamel and melamine and it's just not the same. A good brew deserves a decent cup Twisted Evil

We've drank tea from a jug before, when we forgot the cups, eaten weetabix from a saucepan and had toast in a bowl, but not all on the same trip. Rolling Eyes Laughing
