NTL (New ThermoServ, Ltd.) has launched the Versaware microwavable dinnerware collection, here, at the International Home + Housewares Show. The company said it is similar in weight and durability to melamine, but can be heated
“This is a truly game changing line of dinnerware unlike anything else on the market currently. The material, Micropure, is a proprietary formulation developed by NTL and is similar in look and feel to melamine, with the same ultra-durability and dishwasher safe benefits. However, unlike melamine which is not meant to be heated, this material is entirely microwave and oven safe. It’s truly a new way to get the look and feel of stoneware or ceramic, along with the versatility of use for heating, but with all the break resistant properties of melamine,” said Dowdy.
The Versaware collection is also freezer and conventional oven safe, up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. She also said the Versaware collection will be priced in line with the company’s premium melamine collections, which makes it comfortable price point as well.
