    Most buyers don't know which one to buy….. Basically people will go after, what fits in their budget and give the best look for their home or office.

    This explanation put forth in the video is confusing! Porcelain is a type of ceramic. Generally, there are Porcelain, Stoneware, and Earthenware types of clay bodies under the category of material called "Ceramic".

    Porcelain's water absorption rate is usually 1% or less. This is what makes porcelain a good choice for outdoors (freezing weather is less likely to crack a porcelain tile since there is less water in the tile to expand when frozen).

    Stoneware, as a rule, has an absorption rate of about 2-5% absorption rate. Some stoneware clay bodies have a lower absorption rate, making it a good choice for pottery dishes along with porcelain. (Dishes are subjected to a lot of abuse from absorbing water in a dishwasher to superfast heating in a microwave.)

    Lastly, earthenware is a clay body that can absorb around 10%-15 water. Items made from this clay body are not meant for microwave use, but can be used just like other clay bodies. The clay's absorption of water means that these tiles might help keep a home more comfortable in an arid climate.

    These people are so wrong, I deal with tiles and stones all day every day and porcelain chips far easier than ceramic. Don't believe me go to a home depot or Lowe's and take one of each tile and barely tap the sides of each together and see which is damaged! People please do your due diligence!!!!!
