That's right. But ORNAMIN tableware is made of high-quality plastic. And that offers many advantages.



Longer lifetime, excellent efficiency: ORNAMIN tableware has many good characteristics.

Children's tableware


ORNAMIN tableware is always the right choice: at home or in nurseries.


Is this porcelain?

No, better: this is plastic.

Of course the look and feel of porcelain is something special. If only it was not so sensitive. This is where the ORNAMIN reusable tableware comes into play. Made of high-quality plastic, it looks deceptively similar to porcelain and is already therefore a good choice: for professional use in canteens, cafeterias and nurseries. Or just as camping dishes in a caravan or on trips. And of course also as break-resistant children’s tableware at home.

Durable and sustainable – high-quality tableware made of reusable plastic offers many benefits.

The special advantage of our tableware in comparison with porcelain? It is very clear: it is extremely sturdy. And that especially means: it lasts significantly longer. In addition, it is lighter and more low-noise to use than compared to porcelain crockery. The feel is also convincing: it feels just as valuable as normal porcelain. And if it falls down, it will not break.

ORNAMIN tableware lasts longer


ORNAMIN tableware is extremely sturdy. This also means: no shards and no risk of injuries if it falls to the ground. The low fracture susceptibility ensures a longer durability in comparison to porcelain tableware.


Convincing look and feel


The porcelain-like appearance makes the ORNAMIN tableware a real eye-catcher. And with the variety of series, colours and decors, everyone can find the tableware to suit their taste. Also the feel is convincing: ORNAMIN tableware also feels like porcelain.

ORNAMIN tableware everywhere


ORNAMIN tableware is the sustainable and cost-saving solution for every canteen or cafeteria. Children learn to eat with it and also in schools there is significantly less breakage. Picnic lovers and hikers are also pleased about the low weight.


Crockery for young and old

ORNAMIN tableware fits everywhere and for everyone. For private use: at home or on the go. In the professional sector: For young and old. Children learn to eat independently without danger. And in German canteens a little more calm is finally returning.

The Ornamin canteen tableware has been used in our canteen for four years. We can talk well during lunch, because a noise emission compared to porcelain dishes is hardly noticeable. The durability of the tableware is also enormous.

The advantages of plastic tableware are obvious. When several thousand trays and plates pass through the hands of staff and students in the canteen, weight and background noise make a big difference when handling the dishes.

Detlef Will,
Department Head Hochschulgastronomie Bielefeld

In 2008, we decided to introduce new tableware in our canteens. According to our specifications, ORNAMIN has developed the tableware series in campus style, which we have been using since then and from which the students and the Studentenwerk benefit equally.

Frank Sager,
Director CampusGastronomie

Our main reasons for ORNAMIN: The crockery of ORNAMIN is significantly lighter than porcelain and therefore better to handle. The decisive factor for our decision was also that the tableware contains renewable raw materials and that it does not break immediately when it falls down.

We chose ORNAMIN crockery for the fun and adventure pool because it is simply aesthetic and does not look like the usual plastic tableware at all. At the same time, it is also more break-resistant than porcelain and glass, so that we can use it without fear of sharp edges in the swimming area.

Peter Mundt
Head of the Gastronomy Department
Tropicana Stadthagen

We started using ORNAMIN crockery because the bowls are much lighter compared to porcelain, making the workflows of our employees much easier. In the meantime, we also appreciate the very high quality and that the breakage rate has almost reached 0.

Christian Puslednik
Head of University Gastronomy
Studentenwerk Dortmund

At our University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration and Judicial Administration in Bavaria, we use completely plastic crockery, so that our guests do not run the risk of shards and yet there is a pleasant atmosphere at the table. The simple handling of the sturdy material also relieves the daily work of our employees.

Bernd Vullert
Head of Department CITTI GV-Partner

In the country kitchen we were looking for a solution to bring aesthetics to the lunch table in the area of “dining on wheels”. Together with us, the ORNAMIN employees have developed a practical and attractive solution – the place plate. This makes “eating like from the plate” possible without decanting.
