Plates throughout Your Life

Food and drink has always been at the centre of culture and society throughout history. It gives people a sense of unique identity and forms the foundation for traditional events around the world[1]. The ingredients, methods of preparation, preservation techniques, and types of food eaten at different meals vary among cultures[2][3] – but the one thing they have in common is the use of plates.

Plates are needed every day, so it’s fair to say that they are a staple in life. Different occasions require different kinds of plates and here at Finish we have developed our most powerful dishwasher tablet yet, meaning your plates come out looking clean and sparkling after every wash, ready for the next delicious dish.  

Here are some life events when you may find yourself needing a lot more dishes.

Life and Life Events

Plates are for life, not just for Christmas.

For millennials, growing up with technology has allowed them to permanently compare themselves and the things they own to their peers - homeware included. Although older generations would have received plates to mark milestone dates in their lives, today this is something that is less practised. Nowadays plates are so affordable that more can be bought, and individual pieces can be replaced as and when they’re needed.

Big occasions throughout the year will always require a lot of plates. Whether it’s celebrating becoming a year older or another New Year’s party, there are always going to be family and friends who are there for the event.

Wedding Gifts

Previous generations would have received plates to mark milestone dates in their lives, nowadays however, people achieve different stages in their life at all sorts of ages. For example, having dinner sets on a wedding gift list is less common as in certain countries, an increasing number of couples now live together before marriage. They would already have everything they need to start their married life together, including dishware.  


Whether you are celebrating your own birthday, or a family member’s birthday, it’s great when loved ones gather around to celebrate. You’re going to need a lot of plates in order to cater to the amount of friends and family that could potentially be turning up but at least now, thanks to Finish, you can focus more on celebrating becoming one year older rather than having to face the washing up at the end of a busy day.

Serving plates

At times when you are catering for a large amount of people, a serving plate may come in useful – whether to serve canapes and nibbles throughout an evening or to allow people to help themselves to food during a large dinner party. Today, serving plates are rarely used but when they do they need to look perfect – and now thanks to Finish Quantum, they will be looking as good as new and have a brilliant shine after every wash.

Here at Finish we understand that throughout your life there is going to be moments when you require a lot of plates, and this means having to dedicate time to washing them all up. Whatever the occasion, and how ever many plates you may need, Finish has the Powerball to help your plates come out clean and sparkling after they’re washed and make sure your glasses, cutlery and crockery, get the best ever clean and shine*! No matter how many people are joining you to celebrate the occasion, you can always rely on Finish to do all the hard work, so you can focus more on enjoying yourself than worrying about how clean your plates are looking and how much washing up you will have to do at the end of the evening.
