Hospitality Buying Guides

Commercial Firing Temperatures

There is a direct relationship between the high glaze firing temperatures of hotel grade porcelain chinaware and durability.

Hard paste commercial porcelain is typically glaze fired at over 1350°C, this achieves an excellent glaze melt and results in fusion of the glaze with the clay under body.

The outcome is a very hard wearing ceramic body that resists dishwasher detergent attack, glaze scuffing, metal marking, with near zero water absorption for the greatest durability and hygiene.

Inspiring Culinary Creativity

Gone are the days when chinaware was always matching and from the same range and manufacturer.

Today’s chefs are taking a much more eclectic and relaxed approach when choosing tableware to showcase their menus, often choosing unique shapes specifically for individual menu items. This helps to keep the table presentation fresh and relevant.

A few interesting and unique shapes incorporated into your regular service will enchant your guests and enhance their overall dining experience.
