Stoneware is the world’s leading material for dinnerware collections because of its durability and stylish finish. Stoneware is nonporous and is still a type of ceramic that possesses other ceramic ware’s traits. Unlike porcelain, stoneware is fired at temperatures ranging from 2150°F to a high 2330°F. Stoneware is a lot more durable than your usual glassware and has a bigger and bulkier build, too.
You will know that you are handling stoneware because it will be heavier than your usual fine china and porcelain. Stoneware is not made purely of clay-like materials.
It is usually a mixture of various ceramic base materials and kaolinite. Commercial establishments like restaurants often go for stoneware because they are very durable and incredibly hearty for continuous use. Today’s blog is all about stoneware dinnerware sets that can set the stage for a new era in your kitchen.
This beautiful 16-piece dinnerware set from Gibson stands as an elite stoneware set because of its unmistakable postmodern finish and special, modern design. This set is from the Double Bowl collection that features wavy edges for that extra contemporary look you will surely love. The collection has a very modern yet earthy look that will help soften any ultra-modern setup, primarily metallic in aesthetic. The collection includes fruit bowls, artisan bowls, dessert plates, and dinner plates.
These beautiful plates and bowls are excellent for formal and informal occasions – they are microwave-safe and fit for the dishwasher, too. Suppose you are wondering what reactive glaze means. In that case, that means the manufacturer has melded two or more colors to create a very contemporary and dreamy finish to set apart the collection from the rest.
The reactive glaze method sets apart these dishes and bowls from everyday dinnerware with very basic designs (almost stamped-on) while maintaining the dinnerware’s super durable quality. If you have never purchased stoneware before, you are going to love how Gibson has reinvented the stoneware dinnerware set.
Pfaltzgraff’s Trellis 16-piece dinnerware set is another classic set fit for a king. This set includes mugs, soup cereal bowls, dinner plates, and salad plates.
This collection features full service for four people, so if you are serving parties of ten and up, you may need to buy three or more at a time to have an equal number of pieces from the same set. Pfaltzgraff has a very playful aesthetic in this set of plates and bowls, so you might want to use it when you’re feeling classic yet whimsical. The nice blending of colors is a great sight on any dinner table. The theme is reminiscent of the metal trellises used for rose vines and other beautiful ornamentals in your garden, so it has a very solid, earthy vibe that you will love. Despite the extra splash of color, the dinnerware remains a solid choice for modern kitchens and rustic kitchens, too, because they seem to fit both sides easily.
The manufacturer has designed the plates, bowls, and mugs so that the colors appear to have a weathered or aged look like the colors gently smudge into the pure white of the stoneware.
Pfaltzgraff has also invested in tough stoneware material at firing temperatures enough to make the dishes and bowls chip-resistant on top of the super aesthetics.
If you want beauty that will last long, for generations even, you will. If you are worried that the designs will clash with your curtains or any other aesthetic element in the background, don’t, because the whorl patterns are mild and gentle, and they meld with the surroundings easily.
These bowls, plates, and mugs are all microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe, and they can also be used to reheat liquids and solid food easily. Always opt for dinnerware that doesn’t crack under heat and pressure, and stoneware is always first in line for heftier and more durable dinnerware.
Break from the tradition of white and feast your eyes on this gorgeous collection from Elama. The Elama 16-piece dinnerware set has the most luxurious blue look that completely contrasts with what people know of dinnerware. Normally, people are comfortable with pure white ceramics with just whorls of pale color.
The Elama collection is completely blue on the inside, with lots of deep earthy tones to boot. This dinnerware set provides a sufficient number of bowls and plates for a total of four people, so if you are expecting more people, be sure to buy more than one box.
Elama gives every classic dinnerware lover a chance to own a Zen and lovely collection for any kitchen. They have added a distinctive swirling pattern that features both texture and color. The earthy speckles also give the dinnerware an even more distinct look, for that dash of dinnerware flare that always looks amazing in the kitchen (on the shelf) or on the dining table.
What’s more, all Elama stoneware is super easy to clean; they are also nonporous and highly resistant to staining. Some ceramics and stoneware are not thoroughly nonporous, resulting in heavy staining when exposed to liquids like tomato pastes and other color-heavy food items. If you don’t like having any dinnerware with food stains, you need to invest in nonporous dinnerware.
Whether you are adding gravy or sauces to the mix, you must choose when you are serving to friends or family. What about leftovers? You can use the large dinner plates to gather all leftover food items and refrigerate them for a few days.
Since Elama dinnerware is microwave-safe, you can reheat the leftovers easily to make sure that you have a nice, hot meal the next day. Your new dinnerware isn’t just beautiful; it’s also completely practical.
