"I can use clay pots and ceramic or porcelain (not gold / silver design) to cooking in the microwave?

I use the microwave plastic dishes safe. but I've seen people use ceramic plates for her on television. So I wonder if I can use clay pots, ceramic or porcelain. Thank you.

It depends on the goods which is trying to use for cooking. Many ceramics are well in the microwave, but the handles or other ornaments that make them inadequate. Clay pots should be specifically for food because some kinds of minerals and can leach chemicals acidic foods (tomato-based products for example). To test if a dish in the microwave, place it in the microwave with a glass of water it contains. Heat for one minutes after verification. If the water is warm and the food is cold, it is safe. If water is still fresh, but the dish is hot or warm, should not be used. And as much as gold or the compensation money is concerned, can cause dramatic arcs that can ruin your microwave oven. Never use metal fittings for this reason. The bottom line: If in doubt, tell the manufacturer. If this is not possible and not sure if the paper is to cook, no. It's not worth poisoning by you or your family to save face.

ceramic tile or porcelain - What is the best?

The answer to this question really depends on where the tile will be used. Today more than 80% of the tiles used for flooring tiles are porcelain, while most of the tiles for walls, splashing and countertops, ceramic tile. The exterior surfaces such as decks, pavers are generally, or porcelain tiles.

The reasons have to do with sustainability in the case of floor. While the price, color and design options have much to do with some tiles ceramic walls, splashes and countertops.

Ceramic tiles have been around for thousands of years. It is a testament to their durability and versatility. The body of the tile (called a cookie) is composed of clay and other minerals. The combination of these materials give the soup its strength and stability.

The quality of the slab has to do with the quality of the manufacturer the density of the clay, and the tensile strength of the slab. Porcelain is just a finer grade of clay and made a set of tiles more difficult.

The porcelain tile has a lower rate of water absorption of ceramic tiles, because they are dense. When fired at 1,800 degrees, which creates a surface color porcelain tiles. But when fired at 2200 degrees, the color changes throughout the body of the tile.

Therefore, if these get a splinter, do not show as much as in a mosaic with only a surface staining. Porcelain can be used outdoors, even in areas where temperature is below zero. They are considered "Resistant to frost (not freeze the test). It is therefore appropriate for porcelain patios since the elements are not damaged.

Ceramic tile and porcelain are used and evaluated by the Institute enamel (IEP). This rating system tables is approved by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ATSM). The classifications are:

PEI 1 = Not enough to walk. Use only on the walls.

PEI 2 = Use the bathroom wall and floor only. However, only use small tiles on the floor. more tiles high (6 x 6 or 8 x 8) can break traffic long.

PEI 3 = use in the kitchen and bathroom counters, walls and floors where traffic is not walking heavy (good for residential areas).

PEI 4 = Can be used in residential, commercial and institutional light.

PEI 5 = Use in all residential buildings and / or commercial (malls, airports, etc.) This rating means that images are highly resistant to chipping or cracking.

Many photos of a glaze to the surface. glazed have greater resistance to sliding tile, it is recommended for areas with water. The advantages of tile is that you get a unlimited range of colors and greater resistance to stains. tiles will be healthier, and added slip resistance.

You can find images that have grain to their surface, which significantly reduces the risk of slipping. These tiles are well suited to public areas and the outdoors. There is another test just for the process of enamel. This is called Mohs test determines the hardness (resistance to stripe) of the enamel.

As you can see, there are several quality levels, which determine the different price levels. In Generally, you get what you pay for. However, there is always the possibility that you are misinformed on the tile you buy.

It is important to deal with suppliers who provide the story straight and your interest in mind when suggesting tiles for your home.

Here advice on installation. Make sure the soil is dry, stable and solid before applying the tiles. If the basement is "spongy" (For plywood) or wet (in the case of the basement concrete slabs) chips bankruptcy end.

Installation ceramic tile or porcelain in your home value and improves the quality of your lifestyle. One of the best benefits for the owner low maintenance cost of tile floors and walls. Relax and enjoy.
