8 REASONS WHY A CHURCHILL PLATE IS MORE THAN JUST A PLATE
Churchill blend centuries of experience with cutting edge technology and design innovation to produce one of the strongest ceramic bodies in the world.
Manufactured in the UK, Churchill’s tableware is precisely engineered to perform to the demands of the hospitality environment. Every step in the process is practised and refined. From the sourcing of raw materials and unique formulation of the clay body, to shape engineering and numerous quality checks ensuring that Churchill products work as hard as you do. Top industry chefs choose Churchill over other brands due to the performance, expertise and design of our ceramics adding value to their hospitality operations.
PERFORMANCE MATERIALS – Their unique clay recipe is essential in creating a strong and durable product for the hospitality industry. The raw materials are selected to deliver the optimum balance of strength and whiteness.
ENGINEERED SHAPE & FORM – Every piece of Churchill’s ceramic is designed with performance in mind. Through expert shape engineering, they reinforce strength and durability while continual investment in technology guarantees functionality and consistent quality.
VITRIFICATION & FIRING – 100% of Churchill’s ceramics are vitrified which is essential to the hospitality industry. Through the process of vitrification, the particle structure of their ceramic body becomes strong, dense and watertight.
GLAZING – The glaze used is hard wearing and designed specifically for the hospitality environment. The durability is a combination of the glaze recipe, the firing temperature and substrate. Their Eco Glaze is specially formulated to be re-usable, minimising our impact
on the environment.
QUALITY & CONFORMANCE – Churchill ceramics are continuously tested and quality checked, from the stage of raw materials, throughout the manufacturing process to the final fired piece.
DESIGN INNOVATION – Churchill are experts in ceramic design and at the forefront of innovation. Their entire product portfolio is designed in the UK by an experienced and
talented design team. They work with chefs from around the world ensuring they understand the needs of their customers.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
BRITISH STANDARD EUROPEAN APPROVED VITRIFIED HOTELWARE – They test the vitrification of their products everyday, both in the kilns during firing and in their laboratory when the manufacturing process is complete.
BRITISH STANDARD MECHANICAL DISHWASHER RESISTANCE – In service testing has demonstrated that under hospitality use, this is the equal to 5000 dishwasher cycles.
FULLY GLAZED BASE – Although glazing the feet of their ceramics adds complexity it increases functional benefits to the customer. Foot glazing requires ‘pin firing’. This prevents scratching to tables and plates when stacked.
STACKABLE – The technology used to form their products ensures consistency in size and weight allowing pieces to be stacked back of house using less space and reducing breakages.
SUPERIOR GLAZE FINISH – Their glaze is hard wearing and designed specifically for the hospitality environment. Sprayed glaze creates a smoother and more consistent finish.
DURABLE & VITRIFIED – Breakages in ceramics are generally related to porosity or how much water a piece can absorb. Water absorption weakens the chemical structure affecting its durability over time. Through the process of vitrification, the particle structure of their ceramic body becomes strong, dense and watertight.
ECO GLAZE – Their glazing system is carefully formulated to allow oversprayed glaze to be collected, go through a lengthy cleaning process and then be reused, minimising our impact on the environment.
5 YEAR EDGE CHIP WARRANTY – Certain lines are covered by their 5 Year Edge Chip Warranty. Those products covered by this warranty are annotated accordingly on their individual page.
