Imagine yourself in your kitchen. Now, look around and check the appliances that incorporate stainless steel. Yes, there are plenty of them. Have you ever thought about this?
Why is stainless steel widely used, especially in the kitchen?
As its name suggests, stainless steel is a material capable of resisting oxidation.
It is a metal alloy composed mainly of iron, chromium, and nickel. Among its components, chromium is responsible for its resistance to corrosion and abrasion. Nickel increases its resistance to oxidation and corrosion.
The ability of stainless steel to maintain its appearance and integrity without deformation, even when in contact with corrosive agents, is one of the reasons why it is considered a versatile and durable material and, therefore, widely used in several industrial and domestic applications, namely in the kitchen.
These are the main benefits of its use and what justifies its investment:
Stainless steel is highly resistant to corrosion, which means it can withstand prolonged exposure to water, chemicals, and acids.
This property makes it ideal for kitchen utensils and appliances, where cleaning and exposure to water are frequent.
No wonder RODI’s offer is so extensive and diverse in kitchen sinks made from stainless steel. The sink is perhaps the kitchen equipment most exposed to intensive use and wear.
Kitchen utensils made from stainless steel do not scratch easily and retain their original shape, which means they can withstand daily use for years without significant wear and tear.
In addition, stainless steel is a safe and hygienic material that won’t release toxic substances or pollutants when used in contact with food.
Stainless steel is also easy to clean and maintain. No special cleaners are required – just water and soap.
The stainless steel hardly gets stained and doesn’t absorb odours. Therefore, there is no need for short-term replacement of stainless steel utensils and equipment.
Hygiene and food safety
Stainless Steel is a non-porous material, which means it doesn’t enable the proliferation of bacteria, fungi, and other micro-organisms that tend to accumulate in cracks.
Stainless steel is also easy to clean and sanitise.
Due to its low maintenance cost and high durability, stainless steel appliances have an excellent cost-benefit ratio over time.
In addition, it is a timeless and elegant material, which makes it an element that suits any style and decor.
Stainless steel is one of the most recyclable materials in the world and has a low ecological footprint.
At RODI, our kitchen sinks are made from high-quality stainless steel, containing more than 70% of recycled materials.
