Stainless Steel Used in Food and Catering Industry
October 12, 2021
Stainless steel is used in the kitchen accessories, cutlery and cookware. Less ductile grades of steel are used to make knife blades with sharp edges. More ductile grades of steel are used for items that have to be molded into shape such as cookers, grills, sinks and saucepans. Stainless steel is also used as a finish for refrigerators, freezers, countertops and dishwashers.
Stainless steel is ideal for food production and storage as it does not affect the flavor of the food. Stainless steel’s corrosion resistance is important as some foods, like orange juice, can be acidic. Also stainless steel is easily cleaned which helps keep undesirable germs at bay.
Stainless steel is also important in ice cream production as it allows strong anti-bacteriological cleaning products to be used.
