Can I use my melamine dinnerware with food hotter than 70ºC?
Can I use my melamine dinnerware with food hotter than 70ºC?

Yes, this is not a problem. When 'boiling hot' food (100ºC) is removed from the pan and put straight onto a plate, it will actually cool to between 60 and 80ºC in just a few seconds. The standard of 70ºC is only an issue when a product is subjected to prolonged heating for more than two hours. It's safe to use melamine products with food at a higher temperature as long as this is for less than two hours.

However, in practice, your food will never stay hot for more than a few minutes, so you can continue to use your dinnerware safely. All our products are safe for both children and adults and comply with European legislation and regulations for consumer products that come into contact with food and drink.
