Popular in the food and beverage manufacturing and processing industries for manufacture, bulk storage and transportation, preparation and presentation applications, stainless steels are suitable for most classes of food and beverage products. As an iron-based alloy, stainless steel
contains various combinations of other elements to give it characteristics suitable for a wide range of applications. Chromium is the element that makes stainless steel “stainless.” Any steel containing a minimum of 11% chromium is considered a stainless steel. The chromium content in the steel produces a rich, transparent oxide film, which coats the steel and protects it from corrosion and oxidation. Pure iron, the primary element of stainless steel, is extracted from its natural state as iron ore, it is unstable by itself, and naturally wants to corrode (rust). The chromium helps procrastinate nature's attempts to combine the pure iron with oxygen and water to form rust.
Stainless steel is generally used in commercial kitchens, including utensils because it is one of the most hygienic surfaces available. It is easy to clean and thus makes the preparation of foods very easy. Aside from being attractive and requiring minimal care, stainless steel won't chip or easily rust.
