ISO: Keeps food warm plate-thing-a-majigs?

Where can I find those aluminum plates so I can keep food warm in a 200 deg. oven? Know what I mean?

Say I make steaks on the grill. I'll plate and cover them so they can rest, then by the time all the food is ready the meat is cold. Drives me nuts! I started warming my dinner plates, too.

It sounds like what you're looking for is called a sizzle/sizzling plate - and the better ones are cast iron (they will stay hotter longer than aluminum).

It's basically just an aluminum dinner plate. The cast iron would work, but not economical. I would be using these maybe 4-5 times a week, cleaning in the dishwasher.

I think you may be referring to the round flat-ish pans (VERY little lip around the edge) that we would finish steaks or seafood on at the restaurant. I would check a restaurant supply store.
