I like those six compartment cafeteria trays. Nothing says 'home' like an institutional place setting.

I think square dishes look nice but I wouldn't have them in my home because I'd be worried about the corners chipping off.

I prefer rectangle/square to round.

I have both, but almost always use round at home. I don't care at restaurants.

Square plates fit my dishwasher better. I assume that's why restaurants use them too.

We have square, because they are more efficient and hold more food. 10 inch circle Area = 78.5 sq. inches. 10 inch square Area = 100 sq inches.

Barbarian! Leave your plate on the table, lower your head, and slurp the juices up like decent civilized human being!

This could potentially be a life changing accoutrement. Would it not be seen as totally gauche to whip one of these out at the next buffet type shindig I'm invited to? I'm torn!

Served on a fold-away tv-tray in the family room, sitting in a Barcalounger, watching re-runs of Gilligan's Island? And mismatched cutlery for the finishing touch...

I actually really like the oval ones that are heated set into recessed wooden frames found in the nicer steakhouses. At home we use round and square without any discrimination.
