What is tableware
Tableware refers to non-edible tools that are in direct contact with food during meals, and are used to aid in the distribution or ingestion of food. There are also many disposable tableware on the market, which are not good for the environment; there are also some tableware made of degradable materials.
Tableware includes complete sets, including metalware, ceramic tableware, teaware, glassware, paper utensils, plastic utensils, and a variety of container tools (such as bowls, saucers, cups, pots, etc.) and hand-held Tools (such as chopsticks, knives, forks, spoons, straws, sticks, etc.) and other utensils.
Common tableware material
Ceramics have been widely recognized as non-toxic tableware and reports of poisoning of porcelain tableware. It turns out that some of the beautiful outerwear (glaze) of porcelain tableware contain lead. If the temperature is not enough when the porcelain is burned or the glaze ingredients do not meet the standard, the tableware may contain more lead. When selecting porcelain tableware, use the index finger to gently slap on the porcelain. If it can make a crisp, squeaky sound, it indicates that the porcelain embryo is delicate and burnt well. If the sound is dumb, it is porcelain damaged or porcelain. The embryo is inferior.
The biggest advantage of bamboo and wood tableware is that it is easy to take and has no toxic effects of chemicals. But their weakness is that they are more polluted and moldy than other tableware. If you do not pay attention to disinfection, it is easy to cause intestinal infectious diseases.
Stainless steel cutlery
It is beautiful, light, easy to use, corrosion-resistant and rust-free. It is favored by people. Stainless steel is made of iron-chromium alloy mixed with nickel, molybdenum and other metals. Therefore, it should be noted that it should not be used for salt, soy sauce or vinegar for a long time. Etc., because the electrolyte in these foods reacts with the stainless steel for a long time, so that harmful substances are dissolved.
Commonly used plastic tableware is basically made of polyethylene and polypropylene. This is a non-toxic plastic approved by the health department of most countries. The sugar boxes, tea trays, rice bowls, cold water bottles, and milk bottles on the market are all such plastics.
