These plates are durable. They stay shiny, they withstand harsh conditions, and they tolerate harsh cleaning liquids. In a desperate search for places to store my growing art inventory, I've hung one behind the range top in our kitchen:

This is a pretty serious stress test in our house and it has not had any effect yet on the appearance of the piece.
