My family had one of these plates for as long as I can remember. It is tied with so many good memories. We used it for birthdays, guests, and when we recieved good grades. It has been my pleasure to buy one for each of my siblings for wedding gifts.

The plate arrives in a box with a small card inside that explains the history of the "special" red plate in American culture. I'm eager to start using the plate in our new family--I hope to begin a tradition that my children will carry on with their own families. Who doesn't like to feel special now and then? This is a great way to highlight someone and their achievements in a personal setting.

I saw this plate elsewhere and turned to Amazon for the best price. Really a good value for something that will be cherished and appreciated for years. Makes me smile just to look at it.

We raised three children to adulthood, and to this day, they still want to get to use the Special Plate when they come for a visit. Use this plate to celebrate birthdays, graduations, promotions, bar mitzvahs, etc. Everyone wants to feel special and to be recognized for their achievements. We bought this Special Plate for our new grandson and used the marker (included with the plate) to write him a personal message on the bottom of the plate.
Start your own family tradition by getting this plate and making someone feel extra special today!

We love using these to celebrate special family occasions or achievements. They are great for grandparents too. We have never used the pen to mark the back, but I know other people who like to do that too.

I got a Red Plate from my aunt at one of my bridal showers. It was such a unique and lovely gift. We have used it for everything from celebrating a move into a new house to celebrating a birthday. We actually used it at our wedding and ate our wedding cake on it.

I just sent one to a close friend and her new husband. I only hope that they can treasure it as much as we do. This makes for a great gift when you don't want to give something ordinary.

KUTV (a Utah television station) and a consulting firm performed a test on a random sample of dinnerware products across multiple brands a few years ago and found that all of the Waechtersbach plates tested contained lead (do a Google search for "KUTV exposing lead pdf" - Amazon won't allow me to post the actual web link). I recently e-mailed Waechtersbach's customer service department twice, asking for any clarity they could provide on the study and whether they could either verify or disprove the results but received no reply.

I also performed a Google search on this and found that as recently as December 2013, a customer service representative at Overstock.com confirmed that Waechtersbach's products do in fact contain lead (see Product Q&A after performing a Google search for "Overstock Waechtersbach lead Q&A").

I can not say with absolute certainty that Waechtersbach's mugs and plates contain lead but the evidence I've seen thus far does not inspire a lot of confidence. As such, I would be wary about letting young children eat and drink off of Waechtersbach's tableware products. It might also make sense to avoid microwaving food and beverages using their products as much as possible.

Of course, if the company is willing to state on the record that their plates and mugs are 100% lead-free and definitively address these concerns, I would be more than happy to change my rating on their product.

I have one of these plates but did not get it until I was in my 50's. I use it multiple times/year and record what the occasion was for on the inside of the box (that way I can put the plate in the dishwasher). Recently I gave this as a wedding gift. Think of all the history that might be built around this plate!
