  • First, look at the appearance and certificate
  1. Look at the product itself: whether there is obvious deformation, color difference, whether the surface is smooth, whether the bottom is uneven, whether the applique pattern is clear, whether there are wrinkles or bubbles, etc.
  2. Look at the certificate: the qualified melamine tableware must have the QS logo and number, the implementation standard, the temperature range of use, the raw materials used and the name of the company, address, contact information and other information.

We should pay special attention to the current market. There are a few manufacturers that have obtained a production license (QS) that produce both melamine tableware and urea-coated melamine utensils with two different products. It is even more important to be wary of the manufacturers using QS certificates in violation of regulations and use them as shoddy products.

  • Second, check the smoothness of the tableware surface

Check whether the surface is rough, whether there is a sense of unevenness, whether the colored tableware is faded with a white napkin, and the qualified melamine tableware has high density and large specificity compared with the counterfeit tableware produced with urea-formaldehyde resin raw materials. What’s more, qualified melamine tableware with identical appearance specifications is about 5% heavier than counterfeit melamine tableware.

  • Third, check the smell

Whether the tableware has any peculiar smell. Qualified melamine tableware doesn’t have any peculiar smell.

  • Simple test:

Refer to the damp and heat resistance test method in the "Melamine Tableware" standard to simply test whether the product is qualified: boil it in boiling water for 30 minutes, then take it out and leave it for 1 hour, and repeat this 3 times. If the tableware appears white, astringent, blistering, cracking, and pungent smell during this process, it means that the tableware may have quality problems.

There is no problem if good quality products are boiled 4 times. Whether it is melamine tableware, ceramics, stainless steel and other tableware, boiling water is for sterilization on the one hand, on the other hand, can also promote residual substance dissolves or volatilizes.

As long as you master these identification methods, the authenticity of melamine tableware will be visible to you!
