How to Choose Ceramic Tableware(Part 1)
Every day we pay attention to how to ensure health in diet, but few people pay attention to tableware. Tableware is an indispensable tool for eating. It is closely related to our health. Let's take a look at how to choose healthy, beautiful and practical ceramic tableware!
1. From the perspective of porcelain
When purchasing daily necessities of ceramics, bone china and strengthened porcelain are better, both of which are the materials of high-quality tableware. Bone China is a recognized high-end porcelain in the world. It is not pure white, but natural milky white, with high transparency and light texture. The shaping and color formation of bone ash itself mainly rely on silica, alumina and calcium oxide. The higher the content of calcium oxide, the better the color. In nature, there are not many sources of calcium oxide, so animal bone meal is chosen as the source of calcium oxide. When the bone meal content reaches a certain proportion, the porcelain quality will be greatly improved, which is mainly reflected in the gloss and moisturization of the utensils. However, if the content exceeds a certain ratio, the porcelain will become softer, and it will be difficult to form during the production process, and it is difficult to fire. If the process is not properly controlled, it is easy to cause the amount of lead dissolution to exceed the standard, so the price is also the highest. Reinforced porcelain contains magnesia and has outstanding characteristics such as high whiteness, high strength, and high thermal stability. It is as white as jade, crystal clear and moist, and is an ideal product for various families.
2. Purchase method
One is to "look", which means to carefully observe the top and bottom of the porcelain to see if there are any major defects such as deformation and black spots, and then to look at the whiteness, light transmittance and glaze gloss of the product.
The second is "listening", that is, listening to the sound made when the porcelain is lightly tapped. If the sound is crisp and pleasant to the ear, it means that the porcelain body is fine and dense, without cracks, and is completely porcelainized when fired at high temperature. If the voice is dumb, it can be concluded that the porcelain body is cracked or the porcelain is incomplete. This kind of porcelain is easy to crack due to changes in heat and cold.
The third is "comparison", which is comparison. To form a complete set porcelain, want to compare each fittings, see whether its modelling and picture adornment are harmonious and consistent.
The fourth is "test", which means test cover, test assembly, and test. Some porcelains have lids, and some porcelains are made up of several components. When choosing porcelain, don’t forget to try the lids and assemble the components to see if they are suitable.
