What crockery suits you?
Good resistance to thermal shock – often used as oven to tableware, allowing chefs to cook the food in the dishes you serve.
Stronger and more expensive than standard porcelain due to the addition of aluminium oxide added to clay but cheaper than bone china so often used as an alternative.
Stoneware or ceramic ware
Considered cost effective but not as tough or water-resistant than other ceramics. Uses a white and porous clay, glazed and fired at a low temperature.
A popular choice as it withstands regular use well and is very strong. Vitrified is the term used when the ceramic body is fired to above 1,210°C, it melts the material together to make it non-porous to prevent either water or bacteria from seeping in.
Made from at least 45% bone ash, feldspathic material and kaolin, bone china is renowned for its whiteness and translucency. It has a very high mechanical strength and chip resistance. It’s so strong that’s why it’s made thinly to make it lighter than other crockery.
A strong, lightweight and hard thermostatic plastic, used as a hygienic and durable alternative to china as it resists scratching, staining and is dishwasher safe.
