The hospitality industry is one that will quite literally, keep you on your toes. In fact, high customer expectations, a naturally fast-paced environment and upholding set hygiene and sanitation standards are among the many things that have earned hospitality a slot on many ’top 10 most stressful industries’ reports. Stainless steel has the ability to lessen much of the associated stress based on what it lends.
You only have to think of the amount of stainless steel found in hospitals to see why it is one of the materials most sought after for creating hygienic environments. Stainless steel is a non-permeable material; moisture cannot be absorbed and bacteria subsequently cannot thrive in it. Any residue or liquid that spills onto stainless steel can simply be wiped away with anti-bacterial sprays as an added measure of precaution.
“If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen” – well, stainless steel can certainly take the heat, which is why it has so much prevalence in professional kitchens and food industry sectors. Able to withstand extremely high temperatures without posing a fire hazard or changing composition, makes it the perfect substance to support grills, line surface areas found in the kitchen and even be manufactured into effective cooking utensils.
Any environment where heat and moisture co-exist will generate a fair amount of condensation. For many other materials, that condensation would result in their demise. The dense composition and non-permeable nature of stainless steel means that continued exposure to moisture won’t leave it vulnerable to rust or corrosion, which not only affect aesthetic appeal, but leave areas vulnerable to bacteria.
Stress Less with Stainless Steel
The hospitality and food industry is stressful enough without having to worry about fire hazards, maintaining hygiene standards and the durability of the materials in your kitchen. Aesthetically pleasing as well, stainless steel is a sound and long-term investment for any food orientated sector. For more information, contact Kwal Kraft or visit their website.
