Cleaning Stainless Steel Surfaces
You may have learned that in commercial kitchens and catering settings, stainless steel is essential for hygiene.
Sanitation is important in hospitality and industrial kitchens to avoid foodborne illnesses. It’s also essential to prevent cross-contamination with food with other chemicals.
The fast cleaning of stainless steel summarises its hygiene properties. Cleaning both kitchen benches and cabinets on a daily basis is standard procedure. This necessitates a high level of corrosion and cracks resistance in stainless steel.
Stainless steel surfaces lack cracks, making it difficult for soil, microbes, spores, or viruses to take root – if you don’t even own a stainless steel bench, you’ll appreciate how simple it is to clean.
Stainless steel is close to the glass in terms of cleanability. It outperforms other materials like plastic and aluminium. When all of this is taken into account, you have a surface that offers beauty, economy, longevity, and antibacterial safety. It’s no surprise that it’s a common option in restaurants and hospitality establishments all over New Zealand!
Stainless steel is an excellent material for food applications, so it’s no wonder that it’s a popular option among food companies.
Stainless Steel Corrosion Resistance
It has a long lifespan due to its corrosion resistance. This is due in part to the non-porous quality of the material.
Although stainless steel is a strong and robust material, it is also soft enough to be easily moulded into whatever shape is needed, making it an excellent choice for kitchen benches and sinks.
