Dinnerware Overview

There are so many types of dinnerware offered it can get confusing trying to pick out what is right for you. Several factors go into choosing the right kind, including customer volume, affordability, the type of establishment, and the frequency of use. You'll want to be sure you choose durable dishes that won't chip or crack. We carry a wide selection of dinnerware because Restaurant Equipment World wants to make sure you find all the pieces you need. See the list below for a more in-depth review:

1. Melamine and Plastic Dinnerware: We offer melamine plates and plastic plates in a variety of different shapes and sizes. These are the perfect option for serving breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Melamine plates are an attractive and reliable dinnerware solution for any high-volume restaurant. They offer both style, function, and durability. We have a large variety of color options to choose from so you can find what works with the décor of your establishment.

One of the biggest benefits of melamine dinnerware is they are sturdy in construction. This means they are resistant to cracking, breaking, and shattering. This allows them to be used in a variety of indoor or outdoor settings. Just because they are durable doesn't mean they have to sacrifice their appearance. Melamine plates feature a glossy finish and a great color that looks close to the look of china but without the added cost and maintenance.

2. China Dinnerware: There are many types of china to choose from the most common types of china are bone china, ceramic, and porcelain. Bone china contains at least 25% of bone ash and is the most expensive type of china. However, it's glazed outside protects it from chipping. This results in a thin-walled plate that offers a refined look making it perfect for upscale establishments. Ceramic china is usually thicker than bone china and porcelain. This thick build results in durable dinnerware great for Asian restaurants, upscale establishments, or even catering companies. Porcelain is made from malleable clay and is usually more affordable than traditional and bone china. Most pieces are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe.

There are a couple of things you should take into consideration when purchasing china. First is a perspective from the front of house. Does the style of your china go with the mood and theme of your establishment? Will it add to the experience of how people will evaluate their dining experience? Lastly, how does the color and style of your china go with the presentation of the chef's plating of food?

It's not just front of house things you need to think about but back of house things too such as sanitation, how well will they prevent crazing and cracks that can accumulate bacteria? You will also want to consider the durability of your china. Will it need to withstand use in commercial foodservice, or does it need to be microwave and dishwasher safe? Lastly, you will want to think about storage. Does your dinnerware need to be stackable to save space? These are all some things to think about when considering what china works best for you.

3. Tuxton: The privately owned and family-run, Tuxton China Company has a long successful tradition of creating dinnerware. They are one of the top suppliers in the foodservice industry.
