What are the differences between Ceramic and Porcelain?
The major difference between ceramic and porcelain is how it's made. Both are made from a clay mixture that's fired in a kiln (窯), but porcelain is made from more refined clay and it's baked at higher temperatures. This makes it denser and more durable than ceramic.
Any piece made of natural clay, minerals, and quartz sand hardened by heat and generally given a glaze is ceramic. It’s more porous (小穴の多い多孔質) than porcelain. 100% ceramic cookware can be used in the microwave oven. Also, traditional ceramic cookware is perfect for baking and use in the oven. Pure ceramic cookware can handle oven temperatures, so you can use it safely under high temperatures.
