What Is a Charger Plate?

A charger plate is a large, circular plate that’s meant to be used as a base for a table setting. Charger plates aren’t meant to be eaten off of and shouldn’t be used as serving platters due to their generous size. Instead, they’re merely decorative. When placed below a dinner plate, these table chargers add a beautiful border that makes the table feel even more festive and elegant. The charger plate also helps to define each table setting area during meals with multiple courses. Even as salad plates, soup bowls and main dinner plates are set down and then removed from the table, the setting still looks complete because the charger stays in place.

Reasons to Use Table Chargers

Chargers are most commonly used for fine dining. You’ll often notice then in upscale restaurants and at weddings. In the home, chargers act as a fun way to personalize your table. Though they are great for dinner parties and other special gatherings, you can also use them for everyday meals. They can even be left on the table between meals to create a stylish table setting look in the dining room. With various styles, colors and designs available, these charger plates from Sur La Table can be used to make sure your dinner table always looks its best.
