Probably the most economical tableware on the market

Probably the most economical tableware on the market – Gompels Super Tuff Melamine


Melamine has been valued as a robust tableware option for many years, so why is it such a popular choice in today’s busy care environments? It certainly fits the bill when it comes to functionality, with a super smooth feel that mimics the more expensive porcelain option, as well as its ease of care, but the real benefit comes when you compare the annual replacement rate of melamine to porcelain. 

Cost effective

You can expect to replace less than 20% of your melamine dinnerware annually compared to 50%-150% of porcelain. Additionally, if you use disposable paper plates, consider how much money you’d save not replacing large volumes of plates etc, as well as less storage space and less waste removal. Porcelain, being prone to chipping and breakage is definitely the more expensive option in the long run. Considering that after your initial investment in a set of melamine you can easily get 2-4 years wear out of it, if properly handled and washed, making melamine a sensible choice for your budget.
