Why is crystallisation better than evaporation?

Crystallisation is a process that separates a pure solid in the form of its crystals from a solution. Crystallisation is better than evaporation because during Evaporation. Some solids decompose or some, like sugar, may get charred on heating to dryness. Some impurities may remain dissolved in the solution even after filtration which on evaporation contaminates the solid. Impure solids are obtained by evaporation and are further purified by crystallisation. e.g. salt obtained from the sea is further purified by this method. In some cases e.g. sugar crystal cannot be obtained by simple evaporation technique because sugar gets charred on heating to dryness. In such cases, the crystallisation technique is applied.
