While kitchen cabinets come in many materials, stainless steel is one of the best. Why?
Stainless steel is a metal alloy which stands out for its hardness and hard-wearing resistance characteristics. Indeed, owing to these intrinsic characteristics, stainless steel is the material of choice when making professional kitchens. Indeed, these need to be especially resistant to wear, considering they are designed for much more intensive use. Owing to its characteristics, stainless steel is being increasingly used in the production of domestic kitchens too.
Stainless steel is a biologically neutral and therefore an antibacterial material. Unlike other metals, stainless steel does not modify the colour, the fragrances or the flavours of food and it does not release toxic substances which could contaminate it. This is why it has always been used in the kitchen. Both to make cutlery, crockery and food containers, as well as to design industrial kitchens, where hygiene and perfect food preservation are fundamental requisites.
Stainless steel is extremely easy to clean thanks to the smooth surface which is immune to bacteria. This makes it the preferred material for professional kitchens, where cleaning tasks need to be facilitated as much as possible.
Stainless steel is a material that is resistant to corrosion and to extremely high temperatures. It is weather-resistant and extremely strong. It can withstand UV rays and harsh winter weather.
Unlike almost all the other kitchens (which are only partially recyclable or often not at all), stainless steel kitchens can be 100% recycled. At the end of their useful life, they return to being pure steel, without causing our planet any problems.
Stainless steel kitchens, when well-made using prime quality materials, are near eternal. Indeed, stainless steel is a very hard-wearing material that does not age or change over time.
