At first glance Le Cadeaux looks like quality ceramic or porcelain, however, this dinnerware is actually made of melamine. Designed in Europe and inspired by French Provencal, Italian and Spanish designs, Le Cadeaux is the highest quality melamine dinnerware on the market. It is triple the weight of other lower-priced melamine dinnerware. Perfect for poolside, patio parties, barbeques or everyday use. It is dishwasher safe and lead and cadmium free. Not recommended for microwave use.
