Are there ANY dishwasher/micro safe unbreakable dishes?????

What are your suggestions, mamas? All I can think of is Tupperware, but a lot of it isn't microwaveable, and what good is that?? I need plates and bowls and cups we all can use but that my DD can't break or hurt herself with. BPA-free would be awesome, but I'll settle for just being unbreakable, dishwasher safe, and microwaveable. What do you guys use? PLEASE give me all the advice you've got...I'm so tired of searching and coming up with nothing!!!

Thanks a million!!

I am no help with plastic dishes. We are using china. For ds we have two plastic dishes, the reason you should not put them in the microwave is that the food doesn't warm up evenly on them and you might burn the baby. I personaly would not like to eat from plastic and ds will eat from china as well when he can eat by himself.

Corel. They are technically breakable, but they do not break easily. We have had about 5 broken dishes over 6 or 7 years and that's with 2 adults and 3 kids (and a dog and a cat, which have been known to knock things over). Also, they are not real expensive and they come in lots of different designs.

I agree with Corelle. It can break, but not very easily. We drop plates, my DS throws his bowl - we've had 1 plate chip but that's it.

Corelle is great, but not for picnics, camping trips, etc. I'm looking for Tupperware style stuff without the price and preferably with the ability to be micro'ed when necessary. Any other thoughts, mamas?

Out of all the sets of dishes I have, the ones we use the most are hard plastic plates(they also sold the bowls and salad plates but I didn't buy it) from Bed Bath and Beyond. Sold for outdoor use, picnics and barbques. Got it for $1 a piece on sale. Dishwasher and microwave safe and it hasn't broken yet despite being dropped and even dragged around by the dog.
