Is vitrified porcelain a durable choice for my venue?
Yes. Vitrified porcelain is a type of porcelain that has been fired at high temperatures, making it one of the most durable options for plates, cups and other dinnerware in commercial settings.
Vitrified porcelain won’t absorb moisture and is safe for large commercial dishwashers and microwaves. It also features a scratch-resistant glaze that will keep your plates looking fresher, newer and cleaner for longer. Alongside its durability, vitrified porcelain can be customised with a range of different patterns, colours and styles to suit a variety of restaurant styles.

What’s the best way to clean vitrified porcelain?
Thanks to their durable porcelain material and scratch-resistant finish, Nova dinnerware is suitable for use in large-scale commercial dishwashers.
For washing your plates by hand, the best way to clean vitrified porcelain plates is to rinse them in warm water and then use a mild detergent on a soft cloth. You can also use a non-abrasive cleanser for mild stains. For tough stains, you can soak the plates in warm water with a mild detergent for 30 minutes before scrubbing them with a soft cloth.

Is Nova dinnerware scratch-resistant?
Yes. Our collection of Nova dinnerware features a scratch-resistant glaze that can withstand abrasions and marks from cutlery, scrapes, stacking and industrial dishwashers.
