A Guide to G.E.T. Melamine Dinnerware Tiers

Armed with more than 30 years of experience, G.E.T. Enterprises offers a wide variety of attractive, durable, and innovative tabletop supplies and accessories, including dozens of melamine dinnerware patterns and shapes. With so many options to choose from, figuring out which G.E.T. dinnerware is best for your foodservice operation may seem like a difficult task. Fortunately, the experts at G.E.T. have distinguished their dinnerware lines into four categories: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum.

Bronze Melamine Dinnerware

The G.E.T. melamine dinnerware in the Bronze tier is considered a great entry-level option because it is the most economical and the most lightweight of the collections the company offers. This type of melamine is designed for foodservice operations that prioritize dinnerware with long-lasting performance and durability, so these plates generally offer a more basic presentation. However, this tier includes the popular Supermel collection, which contains oval, rectangular, and round plates and bowls in colors ranging from Sandstone to Hunter Green to Peacock Blue. It also includes the Dynasty Series collections like Longevity, Tea Rose, and Water Lily.

About the Bronze tier:

  • Most economical option
  • Lightest weight available
  • Best suited to heavy daily use.

Use the Bronze tier for:

  • Fast casual and quick-service restaurants
  • School and healthcare cafeterias

Silver Melamine Dinnerware

Melamine dinnerware in the Silver tier is G.E.T.'s medium-weight option. Like the entry-level collections, silver-tier dinnerware is recommended for use in foodservice operations that serve large numbers of guests each day. Collections in this tier are also a cost-effective option for operators hoping to invest in dinnerware that is slightly above the entry-level category, since they are designed to be more visually impressive without an extreme increase in cost. The Silver tier includes a number of patterns with neutral palettes of tan, blue, and green, including the Tahoe collection and the Texas Blue and Kentucky Green series.

This selection includes a wide variety of patterns, from colorful Barcelona and Mardi Gras dinnerware to the classic Diamond White and Ivory series.
