Miracle Plate Reviews
Miracle Plate is an As Seen on TV product which is said to keep plates and food warm. The name itself is something of a misnomer as you are not actually purchasing a plate, but a plate holder and a gel pack. Miracle Plate works when you heat up the gel pack in the microwave, then place it on the holder. You then place your regular dinner plate on top of the gel pack, which comes into contact with the plate, and transfers heat to it. The gel pack stays warm for up to 30 minutes, which should be more than enough time to last through a meal.
As anyone who has made a large meal knows, it can be difficult and frustrating to try to keep food warm while everyone arrives at the table. With Miracle Plate, heat is transferred from the gel packs to the plate in order to keep food warm longer, and allowing more time to assemble everyone at the table.
The design of Miracle Plate is simple, and should perform as expected for most consumers. One might argue that you could place any standard hot/cold gel pack under a plate and achieve the same function. While this is true, the combination of plate holder and gel pack are somewhat unique, and both pieces of the design are necessary. Simply placing a plate of food on a gel pack would be unstable and likely lopsided.
While our product researchers feel that Miracle Plate should satisfy the majority of consumers, there are of course a few caveats to consider. First, a gel pack placed underneath a plate will warm from the bottom up. Food tends to cool from the top down, thus you’ll probably still need to stir your food to mix the warm and colder sections together.
Another significant factor to consider is the billing and shipping process. Miracle Plate, as of this writing, only appears to be available from the official product website. Although there is a 30-day return policy, shipping is not refundable. Further, it seems as though Miracle Plate is currently only engaged in a limited marketed campaign, which means it is probably only being test marketed. It has been our experience that test marketed (or limited availability) products quickly go into back order status, or take longer to receive than their mass-marketed counterparts. If you plan to order Miracle Plate, we would expect the shipping to be on the high end of their expected 4-week window. Their shipping policy states: This “product will ship within 30 days from the time the order is processed and will be mailed via UPS.”
There are two different types of competing products which are relevant when discussing Miracle Plate. First, you have electric warming trays. These traditional products allow you to keep food warm and ready to serve. These are a higher end solution than Miracle Plate, although more expensive. A popular model is the Waring Pro 400-Watt Warming Tray.
There are a number of other microwaveable plate warmers to be found online and in stores.
It has bee suggested that any hot/cold microwave pack could be placed under a plate and used similarly to Miracle Plate, although it may not be as conveniently situated.
Miracle Plate is a plate holder and gel pack which are designed to keep your plate and food warm. We feel that this product, should it become widely available, will garner positive reviews from the majority of consumers who buy it.
