The plate is a block (and associated item) that can be found in a wide variety of structures, ranging from the Hobbit holes of the Shire, to the mead halls of Rohan, and the taverns of Dunland.


You can also make plates yourself, crafting raw clay plates with three clay balls in a row(as of Public Beta 34, two clay balls or two oak logs are used to create two plates, clay plates or wooden plates respecively):

Now, fire those in a furnace. This can not be done in any type of forge or Hobbit oven. As of Public Beta 34, you will get stoneware plates, and stoneware plates fired in a furnace will give you the fine plate.


Once the plate has been placed on a block you can right-click it with a food item to place that item on the plate. You can stack up to 64 food items of the same food type on a single plate (since Public Beta 21). Cakes and soups can not be stacked on plates.

Right-clicking a filled plate with something else or empty handed, will feed the player one piece. If you want to take a single piece, shift-right-click the plate (since Public Beta 21). If you want to take all food and the plate, break the plate (left-click).

As of Public Beta 27, plates, like pebbles, can be skimmed on water for fun. They rotate, when thrown (since Public Beta 6).

As of Public Beta 34, you can wear plates on the head like a hat, and the plate will show food you are holding in your hand on your head.


Plates can also be thrown, causing minor damage to any mob they hit, and breaking random glass or glowstone blocks that they fly through in a 5x5 corridor. Hobbits can also throw plates at you. You can auto-shoot plates by dispensers.

The achievement 'Kitchen Brawler' is awarded for killing a Middle-earth NPC upon which damage has been inflicted only by thrown plates.
