Human beings are resourceful creatures with a well-known knack for finding ways to circumvent a lack of proper utensils, whether it’s crafting a radio from a coconut shell and two hair-pins or using a flat rock over a flame to cook dinner. Rather than MacGyver a dinner-set from spare parts or drink your pea-soup from a sneaker, pay R799 for a safer, more stylish form of crockery in the form of an Arzberg Form White 1382 20-Piece Set.
It’s not just books that are often judged by their cover. No matter what vegetable, mineral or meaty product you’re cooking up, it’s usually judged first by the way it looks – and a big part of that depends on what sort of plate it’s on. Even the tastiest soufflé is going to go untouched if it’s served up in a rusty bedpan. While Arzberg’s white dinner-service won’t help you craft culinary masterpieces, the twenty-piece set will definitely help any fodder you serve up look like its fit for a king.
Perfect for any dinner party of four, the strong and chip-resistant porcelain dinner-service includes everything you need for starters, mains, dessert and after-dinner coffee. Two sizes of flat plates, coffee cups and saucers, the Arzberg set is an ideal basis for a lifetime crockery set. On top of being chip-resistant, it’s also dish-washer and microwave safe, so you don’t have to worry about it turning into one of those dinner-services you never use for fear of the cleaning process.
Even if you find yourself serving up haggis or veres on your fancy new crockery, you don’t have to worry about it picking up any weird odours that make your next soufflé smell like weird bacon; the non-porous porcelain doesn’t absorb germs or odours.
Whether you’re stocking up for next week’s dinner party, find yourself nesting and in need of crockery or you’re just sick of eating out of coconut-shells, the Arzberg Move White 9880 20 Piece Set is the perfect addition to any kitchen cabinet.
Porcelain fact: The first porcelain bowl was used in South-East Asia when the Emperors daughter left her favourite doll too close to the fireplace. When she realised that her doll was melted beyond repair, she demanded that the emperor do something to rectify the situation and make sure she wouldn’t have to throw it away.
