Different types of dinnerware material

There is a variety of dinnerware available in the market, especially those made of different types of material.

Features and advantages of stoneware

Stoneware dinner sets come with a unique finishing glaze that makes them suitable for everyday use. As a result, they become virtually impenetrable to chipping and have a smooth appearance. Additionally, this gives the product a smooth finish and makes it virtually impervious to drops, cracks, and breaks. Stoneware dinner sets should not be exposed to extreme heat or freezing temperatures, which is why they must be maintained carefully.

Like porcelain, stoneware dinnerware pieces can be microwaved (if they are not barring any metal patterns or finishes), as well as baked in the oven to a temperature of up to 100 degrees Celsius.

Advantages of stoneware dinnerware sets

  • Easy to clean
  • Plain and smooth surface
  • Temperature resistant
  • Longevity
  • Dishwasher safe

Features and advantages of porcelain

Kaolin is the essential ingredient of porcelain. It is a silicate that provides the porcelain with its plasticity, structure, and strength. Furthermore, it contains pottery stone (which gives the ceramic its transparency or hardness).

The porcelain surface is nonporous, and the ceramic is fired at 1200 degrees centigrade, so it's incredibly heat-resistant. You can usually use it in the dishwasher, microwave, and oven, but some pieces may have metallic accents, so ensure it is microwave-safe before you use it.

Advantages of porcelain dinnerware sets

  • Can endure the high temperature.
  • Dishwasher resistant
  • oven safe
  • long-lasting
  • If it does not contain any metal decorations, it is also considered microwave-safe.

Features and advantages of Melamine

The term 'melamine dinnerware' refers to anything made with melamine resin. In melamine resin, melamine (and organic compounds) are combined with formaldehyde under high pressure and heat.

In addition to being heat-resistant, fire-resistant, and highly durable, melamine dinnerware is also durable when it comes to dropping and breaking.

Features and advantages of Bone china

In the construction of bone china, china clay, china stone, and bone ash are combined to create a durable, lightweight, and elegant material.

Due to its chip-resistant nature and stunning appearance, it has traditionally been considered the finest ceramic material for tableware and is suitable for both everyday use and special occasions.

Standard dinnerware set contains which tableware.

Considerations when buying dinnerware sets


The convenience of having dinnerware set that can be used in casual and formal scenarios is invaluable. vancasso offers an array of mix-and-match dinnerware options that will display your personality and complement the décor of your home.

It is a bold choice to choose hand-decorated, patterned, solid, or banded dinnerware sets, but sticking with neutral colors such as white and grey is always the best choice. Take a chance, but ensure that you choose stylish pieces instead of trendy ones, as you will want a long-lasting investment like this.

The color of dinnerware sets makes your dinnerware collection prominent and up-to-date. Unique dinnerware sets contain unique colors and even miss-match colors to complement the whole dinner theme. You should consider neutral or white color if you want a timeless and classy design and want to use it for a long time.


Another important consideration is choosing the right shape for your dinnerware. Shapes such as squares, oblongs, and ovals tend to be more edgy and contemporary, while round ones retain a classic look.
