Summary

An improved apparatus has been developed to evaluate the metal marking resistance of dinnerware. Stoneware matte glazes are the easiest to mark and easiest to clean. White opacified stoneware glazes are readily marked and difficult to clean. Fine china and porcelain glazes are more subject to scratching than to metal marking.
