Collection: Melamine

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF MELAMINE CROCKERY?

All our melamine dinnerware products are NSF & SGS approved, chip and stain-resistant, dishwasher safe, and made to handle both hot and cold food. 

As it is safe to be dropped and almost impossible to chip or crack during normal use, melamine crockery is ideally suited to outdoor catering.

Because of its superior appearance and quality feel, melamine is the trusted alternative to traditional crockery for many weddings and corporate caterers.

Hardwearing

One of the biggest benefits of melamine is that it is hardwearing. Thanks to the strength of the material, it can be dropped and will rarely break, giving it a distinct advantage over traditional crockery ranges. This remarkable property of melamine crockery makes it the perfect choice for any establishment where accidents might be expected to happen, such as pubs, care homes, schools and hospitals, or even mobile catering units.

Scratch Resistance


Not only resistant to breakages, melamine is scratch-resistant too. This makes it perfect for use in busy catering environments where everyday contact with cutlery can quickly take its toll on more traditional crockery. And as it’s the scuffs and scratches plates and bowls pick up that are more likely to force restaurants to replace them – rather than actual breakages – this resistance to scratching gives melamine products a long working life. What does this mean for catering environments? A lower spend in the long run, reduced costs and the potential for extra profit.

However, although melamine is more scratch-resistant than traditional crockery, this doesn’t mean it can be abused. Serrated knives can still damage it, and abrasive cleaning chemicals should still be avoided when cleaning it. Treat it right, however, and it’ll last for a remarkably long time. 

Lightweight Design 

The real miracle of melamine is that it balances this remarkable durability with a surprisingly lightweight design. The typical melamine plate is noticeably lighter than a porcelain equivalent, for instance, while being more durable. From a catering perspective, this is useful as it makes carrying several melamine plates at once much easier than balancing several (often heavy) porcelain ones. That’s good news for waiters and waitresses!

Dishwasher Safe

There’s no denying that crockery being dishwasher safe is a huge benefit – whether you’re catering for small groups or hundreds of diners at a time. Melamine is dishwasher safe under normal conditions, making it likely to be as much of a hit with potwashes as it is with waiting staff.
