Any soup lover knows that the least soup is on the plate, the more difficult it is to spoon it up. Then it is necessary to lift the plate, which often ends up in quite a mess. Claus Roeting came up with the great idea of developing a plate in which lifting up the plate is superfluous. The bottom of his porcelain plates is no longer straight but oblique, in this way the soup always slides into a hollow and so the plate can be emptied with the last spoon. A lifting on the top of the plate and the corresponding cleft on the underside make it possible to stack the plate easily with the rest of crockery.
