Porcelain Dinnerware or China Dinnerware
Porcelain and china are both terms that are used to refer to dinnerware made of a fine particle clay. It usually comprises of kaolin, feldspar, and quartz that has been heated at a high temperature. This makes the resulting dinnerware to be extremely durable and non-porous. This process allows the dinnerware to look more delicate and thin giving it a translucent appearance as well as for shaped details to be added into the design. Most china wares are oven and microwave safe. China with touches of silver, gold or platinum border should not be microwaved, and detergents with lemon scents might damage their metal accents as well. Porcelain usually has a more formal look making it the dinnerware of choice for formal dining occasions, although it can also be used for everyday meals.
Bone China Dinnerware
Bone china usually made from animal bones is combined with porcelain clay and heated at a slightly lower temperature than porcelain to produce a translucent, lightweight and delicate in feel material with a milky appearance. It is the most durable and strongest dinnerware despite its delicate look. Most bone china is oven and dishwasher safe and can be microwaved unless it has metallic banding.
