5 Benefits of Having Stainless Steel in Your Commercial Kitchen

As the foremost stainless steel suppliers in Perth, we have done a lot of work in commercial kitchens. Stainless steel is the material of choice in commercial kitchens for many reasons. Here are five of them.

Stainless Steel Commercial Kitchen

Food Tastes Better

Many surfaces react with foods to impart their taste upon them. Stainless steel doesn’t affect the flavour of any foods. It is one of the safest surfaces in the world for preparing food because it doesn’t harbour microorganisms very well. It is the most sanitary of metal surfaces in the restaurant industry and is used often in both restaurants and hospitals.

Fewer Places for Microorganisms to Colonise

Stainless steel is not only non-porous, but it is also corrosion resistant. Stainless steel remains smooth for as long as you can keep from scratching it. Even when scratched, the damage isn’t nearly what it would be on other surfaces. All you have to do is apply a sanitiser every day and any stainless steel surface will be clean enough to work with confidence.

Neutral Appearance

Stainless steel is “neutral” in appearance. This means that it “goes with” anything. If you find the traditional stainless steel finish too shiny, you can always use a brushed finish. The brushed finish won’t shine at all but many feel that it makes for a “warmer” appearance.

Long Life

This may be the best benefit of all: long life. Stainless steel is hard, tough and corrosion resistant. It can take a physical beating and is resistant to a lot of chemical contaminants, too. If you outfit a restaurant in stainless steel and take care of it, it may last longer than your restaurant does. It could help you perform so well that your restaurant could last forever.

Easily Cleaned

Stainless steel is the most easily cleaned surface in any restaurant. It is not porous, giving food no “foothold” with which to stick to stainless steel.
