More Than Meets the Eye: the Influence of Tableware Aesthetics on Food Consumption

This research examines the influence of tableware aesthetics on food consumption. A series of four studies suggest that while aesthetically pleasing tableware increases food salience which increases hedonic consumption among men but triggers monitoring among women, reducing their intake. Plate type, food type, and goal primes moderate these effects.
