Answer 1:

Most dish manufacturers today will be able to tell you the diameter or the overall dimensions of your dish. Some might even tell you the volume of your bowls or cups. When it comes to plates we were actually laughed at by their customer service. "The plate is flat it does not have volume" we were tld by many. The joke is on them. most plates have volume and no matter how much volume they have they hold a volume of food. Our sizing system takes this into account and as a result we can assign a specific size to a plate, a bowl or a cup which can then be used interchangably as long as the size is the same.
