Dinnerware sticks solidly to any smooth table or work surface. It is virtually impossible to lift or move the plate or bowl. Each Dinnerware Item screws onto the pad (like a jam-jar lid - see picture), and the dinnerware can be washed in a dishwasher (top shelf), while the pad can be simply washed and dried by hand.
To remove the pad simply lift up any corner to release the vacuum. The pad can now be removed or repositioned.
The bowls can be used in the microwave, but the bases can't, so the recommended safest procedure is to heat food in the microwave and then transfer to the Dinnerware.
Dinnerware enables independent eating and drinking for people with physical disabilities, no more chasing the plates and bowls around the table. Great for young children too.
