We will try to use thin polymer materials to cover all the surfaces of plates so that when the plates are used the materials can be taken off to leave your clean unused plate.
The aim of such an innovation is to save time and increase convenience so the plates will have to be covered in polymers by the use of machines. The machines that cover the plates with polymers can use electrostatic means to keep the polymer layers attached. They can also be held by a weak, nontoxic, hypoallergenic adhesive so that they can be easily removed without leaving any residues on the plate. The machine will cover the whole plate in polymer and leave a few loose ends that make it easy to peel the polymer layers of the plates.
Multiple layers of the polymers can be placed on a dish at once so that it can be used over many cycles without having to wash it. The plates can also have many designs to give a feel of different plates. These polymer layers can be used on all utensils that do not have to be used at high temperatures. Materials other than polymers, that have high resistance to heat can be used to make surfaces for utensils like pots, that have to be put through high temperatures.
