Porcelain tableware can withstand very high temperatures and has a key feature, very appreciated not only by professional chefs: food cooks evenly thanks to optimal heat distribution, so you get a perfect crispness on the outside and a delicate soft texture on the inside.
However, not all porcelain dishes are the same. As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to get some efficient tableware that can be a valuable ally in professional kitchens: smart cooks plan to use products that can go from the refrigerator or stovetop to the oven, grill or microwave and then to the dishwasher. This planning is standard for caterers, but it becomes even more important when tables fill up and customers expect quick, precise service with dishes that rise to the occasion.
The quality of porcelain for kitchen and tableware
Porcelain tableware is a wide range of ceramic products used daily, fired at high temperature to achieve glassy qualities. The porcelain articles of MPS Porcellane are made with a mixture of feldspathic porcelain consisting of feldspar, top quality quartz and kaolin from Limoges. Thanks to the method of processing and firing at high temperatures, porcelain is an extremely durable material, despite a smooth, shiny, almost ethereal surface that makes it look delicate.
Used for a multitude of purposes, including the creation of tiles and furnishings such as sinks, porcelain finds its most congenial use in the kitchen: cookware, dishes, accessories and more, to provide essential and inspiring starting points for chefs. With a non-porous texture that is both impact and chip resistant, porcelain items are suitable for the heaviest professional use and are easy to clean, including being dishwasher safe. Versatile and available in many shapes, sizes and colors, they can also be used for cooking: MPS porcelain is the perfect heat partner.

Can porcelain items be used in the oven and microwave?
An item is oven- and microwave-safe when the material from which it is made does not break down, damage, or release toxic chemicals during its use. Using safe items in the oven and microwave is important not only for successful cooking but also for your health.
Our porcelain is fired at temperatures as high as 1300 degrees Celsius: it is this processing that makes porcelain products extremely durable and heat resistant. Therefore, unlike other porcelain items, MPS products can withstand the high temperature of conventional ovens and microwaves.
To know if a porcelain set can be used in the oven, it is helpful to check the bottom of the product or check the manufacturer’s directions. Usually symbols are used to indicate the possibility of use of the piece: horizontal waves are used for microwaves, while vertical waves are used for traditional ovens.
