Precautions for the use of imitation porcelain dinnerware
Imitation porcelain dinnerware is a kind of dinnerware made of resin. Its appearance is similar to ceramic dinnerware, but it is stronger than ceramics, not easy to break, and has bright color and strong finish, which is loved by many children. So parents, do you know what to pay attention to when using imitation porcelain dinnerware?
The imitation porcelain dinnerware you just bought should be boiled in boiling water with vinegar for two or three minutes, or soaked in vinegar for two hours at room temperature to release harmful substances as much as possible;
When using imitation porcelain dinnerware, try not to keep acidic, oily and alkaline foods for a long time;
Do not put food containing more oil in imitation porcelain dinnerware and heat it in a microwave oven to prevent it from releasing toxic substances;
When cleaning imitation porcelain dinnerware, use a soft rag, steel ball, etc., which are easy to damage the film on the surface of the dinnerware, exposing the impurities inside, which is not good for health;
It is best to use a mild cleaner rather than a strong acid and alkali type cleaner, as it may react with the imitation porcelain material.
Is Imitation Porcelain dinnerware Poisonous?
Strictly speaking, regular imitation porcelain dinnerware is non-toxic when used correctly. Imitation porcelain is a polymer plastic material called melamine formaldehyde resin, also known as melamine resin, which is non-toxic and can be used for food packaging. Generally speaking, the temperature resistance range of imitation porcelain dinnerware is between -30 °C and 120 °C, and the oil temperature can exceed 230 °C. This high temperature has far exceeded the tolerance temperature of imitation porcelain, so it will release Excessive formaldehyde.
There is also a fake porcelain dinnerware on the market, which is made of urea formaldehyde resin, a raw material banned by the state. The temperature resistance of this material is only about 80 ℃, and it will release more formaldehyde than regular imitation porcelain dinnerware. Since the imitation porcelain dinnerware will release formaldehyde when it encounters a temperature exceeding the tolerance, does that mean that the imitation porcelain dinnerware can not be used, of course not. Qualified imitation porcelain dinnerware can be used normally at room temperature, or can be put in the refrigerator, or even boiled in boiling water, which are all safe.
