Porcelain, a safe, resistant and elegant solution!
Hygiene and safety across manufacturing processes and at the moment of serving food should be determinant, being this a basic guarantee of the service provided to the consumer. Food items are a favorable environment for the development of micro-organisms, which can be contaminated by these ones and become a source of disease transmission.

Porcelain is a classic and elegant choice when it comes to crockery and household utensils. In addition to its aesthetic charm, it also offers a number of practical benefits, by turning it into a safe and durable choice.
What makes porcelain the right choice
One of the main advantages of porcelain is its composition. Porcelain relies on superiorly selected raw materials, unlike other ceramic products such as stoneware and earthenware, which use a greater quantity of clays and kaolin. The raw materials that make up porcelain are governed by very high and demanding quality criteria, regarding the absence of contaminants.
Another advantage is its durability. It is resistant to scratches, impacts and stains, which means that porcelain pieces can last for several years without showing signs of wear, while preserving their quality and beauty after several years of intensive use. This characteristic turns porcelain into a more economical option, in the long term, as it does not need to be replaced frequently.
In addition, it is easy to clean and sanitize. Unlike other materials, it does not retain odours or flavours, which means that the same pieces can be used for different types of food items, without any further problems. This is due to the fact that porcelain is a non-porous and therefore impermeable material, which facilitates the removal of stains and food residues.
It should also be noted that its thermal conductivity is low, much due to its density and mineralogical composition. Neither tempered glass nor metal can store preheated products, something that is possible with porcelain.
It is, therefore, clear that porcelain is the most hygienic and safe solution for intensive use across cafés, restaurants, hotels and hospitals, while zero porosity also results in easy maintenance.
