My first tableware has been used for more than 5 years and has appeared one after another
The mouth of the bowl is broken porcelain, and the bottom of the plate is blackened
Problems such as not being washed cleanly have become more and more unpleasant to the eye recently, and I want to replace them collectively.
There are many exquisite tableware in the mall, but it is too expensive, and a small cup costs seven or eight hundred.
The porcelain in the night market is cheap and beautiful, but I am afraid of safety issues, and the night market is dark, the bubbles and black spots of the porcelain cannot be seen clearly, and the quality is not guaranteed.
In fact, many people now buy porcelain online.
In order to pick safe and beautiful porcelain tableware, I did a lot of homework and shared it with everyone~
Overglaze color, underglaze color, underglaze color
The structure of porcelain is that the green body is on the inside and the outside is wrapped in glaze and patterns.
There are many kinds of firing processes of ceramics, according to people
The relationship between glaze and flower surface
, summarize it into 3 types:
You don’t have to question the safety of glaze, just look at the flower.
It refers to the patterns and patterns on porcelain, which may be used

The surface of the overglaze color will directly contact the food, and the outer layer of the underglaze color is only the glaze…
But actually, this
All three types of porcelain are safe
, can be used with confidence,
The real difference between them is that they fit different styles and patterns.
Glaze color, not in vain
The glaze color would have been the most exquisite of the tableware, but because
The flower face is exposed on the outside of the glaze, and many people will question its safety.
There is no need at all, qualified quality glaze tableware, not only the highest appearance, too
There are no safety risks at all!

Its production process is that the green body is first coated with glaze, fired at high temperature (about 1300 °C) into white-glazed porcelain, and then painted or appliqué on the white glaze, and then baked in the kiln at 600 °C ~ 900 °C.
Porcelain is fired in a kiln
Qualified quality overglaze color,
Although the dye is not sealed by the glaze, the burning temperature has reached 600 °C ~ 900 °C.
That is, only when this temperature is reached can the dye melt and fade.
We use porcelain as tableware every day, and we can’t touch such high temperatures!
The warmest food it can come into contact with is fried, only
Left and right, there is also the instantaneous high temperature of the microwave oven
The glaze color will never melt or fade at 250°C
, the oil temperature of frying and cooking is no problem, not to mention the staple food and soup porridge of steaming are at 100 °C.
The decorative effect of glaze color is the best,
Rich in color, delicate in drawing and expressive.
Because on the glaze you can
Fine tracing and drawing, using delicate flower pieces
The dye is not covered with glaze, and the firing temperature is slightly lower than other processes, yes
Keep bright colors
Even the bottom of some glazed colored porcelain has dishwasher safe written on it. Obviously, glaze colors fired above 600 °C will not be afraid of the “low temperature” of about 100 °C in the dishwasher.
If you are a particularly cautious person, pay attention
The pattern does not touch the food, or it is okay to just use it for cold meals.
Just like this, the pattern is only on the edge of the plate, or the outside of the bowl, so you can always feel at ease, right?
In short, the glaze color is not as easy to fade and poison as you think, it is very strong ~
If you are obsessed with the appearance of glazed tableware, buy it with confidence!
Underglaze color, not so powerful
Underglaze color is often considered
is the safest
Underglaze painting is a one-shot firing process: the plain blank is dried, painted directly without firing, then a layer of glaze is sealed on the painting, and finally it is fired in a kiln.
This is equivalent to a layer of glass sealing the green body and pattern, even if the pigment is slightly toxic, it cannot come out.
Yes, the safety of underglaze is indeed extremely high, but it is not as flawless as many merchants boast.
Its biggest drawback is:
Not as beautiful as glaze
, the color of the pigment and the delicate drawing, are greatly limited.
During my visit, I found that many brick-and-mortar shopkeepers in the small commodities market said that all their tableware was underglaze.
This is most likely true!
The store said this only because most people think that underglaze color is the best.
In fact, underglaze color is one of the three processes
The most primitive, rudimentary technology
In some cases, underglaze is even used as synonymous with low-grade porcelain.

When purchasing in a physical store, it can be done through
Touch the feel of the pattern pattern to judge whether it is a real underglaze color.
The production process of underglaze color determines that the glaze evenly wraps the green body outside the pattern, if the pattern feels bumpy and convex, then it is most likely not underglaze color~
When shopping online, as long as
The parameter bar or detail page clearly says “underglaze color”
Three words will do, very simple!
Because if the parameters are fraudulent, the seller will be punished, the light is limited to 7 days, and the heavy can not continue to open the store~
Compared with offline stores, Taobao sellers are much more cautious when filling in the parameter column information.
What the hell is a color in the glaze?
Many people have not heard of the name of glaze color, as the name suggests,
Glaze in color, that is, the flower surface is in the middle of the glaze.
the production process of color in glaze,
It is first glazed firing, the glaze painting and then firing, during the firing process, the pigment sinks into the glaze, and then forms the glaze color.
If you are careful enough, you may have found that the production process of glaze color is the same as that of glaze color.
German Vebosch, glazed tableware
The difference is that the overglaze pigment floats on top of the glaze, while the glaze pigment sinks into the glaze.
Pay attention to keywords:
The firing process sinks, which requires that the temperature of the secondary firing be higher than the temperature of the glaze.
The stability of the pigment must be higher than the melting temperature of the glaze
Otherwise, when the glaze melts, the pigment will change color.
The temper of the pigment is difficult to grasp, sometimes two or three degrees higher, and it immediately changes color to show you.
Glaze color has relatively large limitations, and once dominated by blue and white colors.
But even blue and white alone can make a variety of thick and light patterns, which is very ingenious.
This is because the color material in the glaze can produce a strong halo after melting into the glaze, which is very similar to the effect of ink color on rice paper, which is especially suitable for expressing the meaning of Chinese painting.
Even if there are only blue and white colors, landscapes, flowers and birds are expressed vividly
As the color of the glaze increases, the different colors blend with each other, and the effect is even more amazing!
Rationally look at the three processes of overglaze color, underglaze color, and underglaze color, in fact
All three can be bought
Porcelain cooking has been made for thousands of years, and it is still struggling with safety issues, which is too rudimentary!
What should really be considered, is
Appearance, feel, collocation
The fit of the shape of the plate and the living habits, the cost performance, etc.
Contrary to popular belief,
Underglaze color is the most common and suitable as a basic model in the home; High-grade overglaze and glaze color do not have the safety problems that people imagine, but can be used to enhance the taste of the home.
Follow the place of origin and shop for porcelain online
Instead of hesitating between porcelain in three processes, such as glaze color, it is better to follow the place of origin to buy porcelain.
There are 5 most famous porcelain production areas in China:
Jingdezhen, Tangshan, Dehua, Chaozhou, Liling.
Buy different porcelain from different origins, and the advantages of origin can be fully utilized.
The most simple, Dehua white porcelain
The advantages of Dehua white porcelain include:
Good whiteness, high gloss, pure and warm glaze…

Dehua white porcelain is particularly suitable as a base for the home.
Dehua County belongs to Quanzhou City, if you want to buy white tableware, look for the store in Quanzhou, Fujian!
Search for “plate”,
Select Fujian in the Origin column
, then pick a white style.

However, among the Dehua white porcelain, there are also high-level “guiti”, that is
“Mutton fat jade porcelain”
Mutton fat jade porcelain belongs to very high-grade white porcelain,
The price is 2~4 times that of ordinary Dehua white porcelain
, almost more expensive than the same style of bone china!
From porcelain clay to glaze, mutton fat jade porcelain is more high-end than ordinary Dehua white porcelain,
The porcelain is delicate, warm in color, white and transparent
, the visuals are very advanced.
Mutton fat jade porcelain is not that silly white silly white, but light beige, glowing with warm light, very good-looking.

Superlative, Tangshan bone china
Bone china was invented by the British in 1794 because of its in
The clay is named bone china by adding bone meal from herbivores such as cattle and sheep.

To buy bone china, choose a store in Tangshan.
There are some C shops that sell tail orders for exporting bone china, which are very beautiful.

The most Chinese, Liling underglaze multicolor
Liling porcelain originated
Official kiln at the end of the Qing Dynasty
, innovatively fired
Liling’s underglaze multicolor,
The painting is exquisite, the colors are elegant, and the degree of sophistication is comparable to the traditional glaze multicolor

The following set of red plum annunciation series is especially suitable for sending elders, or with new Chinese-style beauty.
The most down-to-earth, Teochew porcelain
It is said that Teochew porcelain is grounded, not because it does not have high-end goods, but because
Chaozhou’s ordinary daily porcelain is really cost-effective
The history of firing pottery by the ancestors of Chaozhou dates back to the Neolithic period.
More than 6,000 years ago, the ancestors were smelted here, and there was large-scale development in the Tang Dynasty, and now it is also a place with a relatively high degree of mechanized production.
The degree of mechanization is high, and the price will naturally come down.
Teochew porcelain factory
So, I recommend everyone to choose
When using daily and ordinary tableware, you can consider Teochew porcelain.
Low price is the advantage of Teochew porcelain, a set
4 4.5-inch colored bowls for only 29.9 yuan.

Ordinary ≠ ugly
, can choose a good one among low-priced porcelain, and even the one that “looks quite expensive”, which shows more profound skills.
Among Teochew porcelain, it is especially recommended that you buy heavy, rustic Japanese tableware.
It looks simple and advanced, but it does not require too elaborate drawing and coloring skills
, just suitable for Teochew porcelain.
For example, the following set, 4 people tableware is only 86 yuan, too cost-effective~

The most literary and artistic, Jingdezhen porcelain
Speaking of porcelain, you can’t get around Jingdezhen.

Shop: One juice and one dish
“Jingpiao” refers to the new generation of artists and designers who come to Jingdezhen because of their love of ceramics, and the mature industrial chain of Jingdezhen empowers their works.
The price of these works is not low, and it is not so easy to find online, so it needs to be carefully explored.
