The history of glass dates back to 7,000 years before Christ. At that time, glass was not manufactured, but broken out of volcanic rocks. Finally, about 2,500 years ago, the production of glass began, which still today consists of five components: quartz sand, dolomite powder, lime powder, sulfate powder and soda powder. Today, glass is not only used as a material for window panes, eyeglass lenses or coverings, but it is also indispensable in the catering industry.
Cold drinks are almost exclusively served in glass: Gastronomic establishments, hotels and restaurants in particular attach great importance to perfection, which is expressed by serving high-quality glasses. These must emphasize the ambience and visually match the tableware. At LUSINI, you will find not only individual glasses, but also glass series from VEGA with different sized glasses of the same style or color, which create a uniform image. At the same time, they have features that are of high importance in the catering industry: They are stable, sturdy, easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
In order to obtain clean glasses with the dishwasher, attention should be paid to both the correct loading of the rinse basket and the dosage of rinse aid. The higher the water hardness, the more rinse aid will be needed. You can avoid water spots by polishing the glasses after the rinse cycle.
Every drink requires the right glass shape. For aromatic red wine breathes in bulbous glasses, latte macchiato served in a glass shows the classic separation of coffee and milk foam. Which types of glasses are needed depends on the beverages on offer and the catering concept. If you are unsure which drink is served how, our glass 1x1 informs you about the appropriate drinking vessel. Basically, most gastronomies need these glasses:
According to the European calibration law, a glass in the catering industry is a measuring device and must be calibrated. This means that a glass must have a calibration mark or a filling mark so that the guest can check whether the quantity ordered corresponds to the reality. If the beverage is served in a decanter, for example, it is sufficient if the decanter has a calibration mark. The calibration law does not apply to coffee, tea and mixed drinks consisting of three or more liquids.
