Tips on Choosing Great Japanese Plates and Dishes
Choosing the right Japanese dinnerware is important for your table. There are some factors you need to consider when investing in Japanese dishware.
Purpose: You need to consider for what purpose are you buying Japanese dinnerware? Is it for a casual dinner or for that special occasion when you have your friends over? Or is it a formal dinner for your office colleagues? Or May be you are starting a restaurant?
Material/Durability: You need to choose a material that is long lasting and durable.
Porcelain is a ceramic material which is made by heating raw materials including clay in a kiln at very high temperatures. Porcelain is a great material to use in Japanese dinnerware. Porcelain is tough, strong and has high resistance to passage of electricity which makes it a great insulator. Stoneware is another ideal material to use for Japanese dinnerware. Stone ware is dense, impermeable and hard enough but differs from porcelain, it is more opaque. It is usually colored grey or brownish because of impurities in clay. Stoneware has wide uses in hotelware, kitchenware, cookware etc because of its high strength and durability.
Design: There are so many countless designs you can choose from. We have great Japanese porcelain dinnerware in various shapes, sizes, designs and colors.
