Second touch, touch the part of the meal with and without patterns by hand. If the two parts are the same smooth, it means it is inferior; if there is a pattern part that is obviously jerky, it feels like the pattern is stuck on the surface of the tableware is a good product.

Three scratches, the outer layer of the tableware is very hard, no matter how hard it is scraped, it will not damage the glaze. If you find that the glaze pattern of the tableware can be easily scraped off, it must be inferior.
