Top 8 Places in India to buy Crockeries –
Crockery made out of bone china, porcelain, ceramic, stoneware and earthenware etc are bound to break anytime if not handled with utter care. But it doesn’t mean that we should never invest on crockeries. They bring the feel of royalty and soothe your eyes with satisfaction. For a fact i must say that i can never take my eyes off from them even if i have handled them a hundred times.
There are lot of benefits for having food in ceramicware:-
Ceramicware never hold the bacteria E. Coli or any other bacteria on its surface unlike steel or any other plates due to its material and build structure. Its is healthiest of all material due to its non porous nature.
It makes your simplest food look so good on plate. As they say “You eat with your eyes first”. Presentation matters the most. Ceramicware are considered non toxic and non reactive. But not all ceramic can sustain heat so choose accordingly.
Last but not least they come in such varities of shapes and size, the quality and the appearance, that for people like me i can buy any ceramicware irrespect of its purpose.
There are two types of people that you can mainly see when it comes to shopping crockeries:-
1. Few buy crockeries, to serve when you have guests at home.
2. Rest buy crockeries out of passion.
If you fall anywhere under the second category then you are with me… So its been 8 years and counting by now and my craze for crockeries never ever subside. I never feel enough of it or regret spending my money on them…
Its my love for crockeries or any thing made out of ceramic. I feel delighted in exploring stuffs brought from different places.
As such i am the single handler of my crockeries and never give it to my house-help with even cleaning them. I also make sure while investing on any crockeries for its quality and design without any compromise. I believe this article serves you in some way.
Let me jot it down for you with some of my collection for your reference:-
1) IKEA India – Hyderabad & Navi Mumbai (New Bombay).
IKEA is one stop destination to meet all your expectation under one roof. You can find all kinds of things required for your home here. The best of one is no doubt – The crockeries. They are so eye catching and fine and full of quality that we can hardly find it anywhere. Most of the things you see in Ikea are imported. It is basically a platform for different designers across the globe, who puts up his product in the entire branches of Ikea. There are thousands and thousand of designer products in IKEA offering variety of option for single product.
That too at affordable range. For some people it may be a product designed and manufactured in their own country while for others may call it imported. But whatever it be imported or domestic, the price remains the same for all countries according to their country’s currency value.
This is one big benefit of buying things from Ikea. They have got those fine finishes and best of it when it comes to Aesthetics. One may never find it enough to have shopped from Ikea. they are budget friendly and you get varieties of shapes and colours. The colours are also most often in pastel hues meaning they wont to be bright and disturbing your attention amongst your display unit or Kitchen. few may find it expensive, but trust me its worth buying crockeries or any bone china related products from IKEA.
One problem with Ikea shopping is that all those things that are bound to breakage is not deliverable. so you have to go to the shop physically and collect them. There is also another option of click and collect service which will be convenient if you stay nearby. Things that cant be brought online can be purchased by this option as well.
