The hefty website lists the everyday product as being pp5(polypropylene #5) which falls into the"durable" category of consumer plastics, often microwaveable and dishwasher safe. Caveats include to "avoid using them to heat sugary foods, like syrup or sweetened tomato sauce, which reach very high temperatures and are more likely to melt plastic."

The party plates are ps6 (polystyrene#6), more commonly known as styrofoam,and "are made with benzene and could leech styrene, a possible human carcinogen and hormone disrupter; they also can't be recycled in most communities."
Even storing foods (cold) in these plates risks leeching these chemicals if the foods have a higher fat content (more prone to leeching.)

People- follow MFG's directions and don't use the colored ones in the microwave! Heck if you can't recycle them and they're not as durable- why use the colored ones at all?

Thanks for the great article- I had bought some 2 weeks ago in anticipation of grillilng weather, and appreciate the input!

I wash them in the dishwasher and reuse them, but they are no good for storing and transporting wet foods if you have kids or clumsy people in the house.

We need the interlock plates back on the shelves. I have gone to several stores and tried to find them. They are no where to be found. Please help me get these plates back on the shelves.

These have been discontinued by the manufacturer. Big Lots closeout store has bought the remaining inventory, so if you have a Big Lots nearby run and stock up while you still can.

I've heard reports that they are now discontinued.

The Hefty interlocking plates were wonderful and I am unable to find any. These were great for taking meals to senior citizens or people who were recuperating from surgery. I even washed them in the dishwasher when they were returned to me and they worked equally well when reused. I am now down to about 4 plates and would love to find some more.

Smile I also am unable to find the hefty serve 'n store bowls. I stocked up but am running out of red and green. I use them during the holidays in my work with young children. They give their parents homemade gifts in them. Where can I get more?

I really counted on these plates forever when they first were available and am terribly dismayed they are no longer available. My daughter always saved individual portions and froze them for me.............yum. It was such a wonderful convenience and we miss them and are hoping someone will manufacture them again. PLEASE..............

What do we have to do to get the manufacturers to return these to the marketplace? I have used them happily for years (the same ones since they are dishwasher safe) and now want to buy more for friends to use.

I bought several packs a few years ago. We've used them, thrown them in the dishwasher, and reused them over and over. We've given away alot of cookies and other food in these plates. Now I am almost out and bummin' that I can't get more. Only a few have cracked and needed tossed - I guess that's the downfall, they can't sell enough when they last so long. I sent a request on the Hefty web site to please make them again. Maybe if everyone does, they'll make it happen.
