Billw, a good alternative is sturdy reusable plastic such as the kind sold as camping gear.  It is a kind of flexible ABS/polystyrene, cool stuff: microwaveable and dishwasherable, practically indestructible, more forgiving than wood perhaps, low cost, delightfully tacky yet unrefined.  You can get the plates, bowls, utensils, everything.  


I discovered on a camping trip the plastic damps out any vibration.  I started using them because I rise early and silently devour my breakfast before my family is stirring.  Well, almost silent:




Full disclosure, I own no stock in this company or any of the other camping-goods purveyors.  Check it out:

Alternative: go down to Walmart and test it before you buy it.


Now that our awareness has been aroused regarding background noises and hearing aids, what else can we think of?  Keyboards?  60 Hz hum?  Billw, what kinds of household products interfere with hearing aids and how shall we market silent alternatives and make a buttload of money?
