Porcelain and ceramic drinkware is a popular choice among restaurant and home owners alike. Ceramic is great for serving both hot and cold drinks. It insulates well and prevents transfer of heat to the handles, which keeps the users’ hands from being burned by the handle. An assortment of ceramic cups is available in many styles and colors.
Food Service Warehouse offers a variety of porcelain and ceramic drinkware including cups and mugs. These ceramic cups are the choice for coffee shops, cafés, Tiki bars and Asian restaurants. Ceramic is nearly as fragile as glass, but is less likely to create “shards” that can end up on the floor or in someone’s food. It also typically has a beautiful white or cream finish that will match the décor of any type of restaurant.
If you use ceramic dinnerware, consider trying the dinnerware page to find the mugs that will match your collection. However, nowadays many food service operations choose to use a hodgepodge of mugs and cups from various collections or manufacturers, which creates variety and gives each patron that special feeling that his or her mug is unique.
Most pieces of porcelain and ceramic drinkware can go in the dishwasher, which really speeds up the process of warewashing. While shopping for your coffee mugs, Asian tea cups or other pieces of drinkware it is important to consider the size of the glass before purchasing. This is crucial in order to make sure that the porcelain cups will be able to fit into your dishwasher’s glass rack.
