Why Stainless Steel Does Not Rust

Steel has been one of the most revolutionary’s discoveries that redefined its use and utility. It was discovered by metallurgist Harry Bradley in 1913. No wonder it has played an important role in the arena of kitchenware and utensils across the world. Steel packs a punch on other metals because f the fact that it has high tensile strength, low maintenance cost, longevity and scratch-resistance feature. But the biggest merit steel has is the corrosion resistant property.

Stainless steel is basically an alloy of several metals which form a stable film on the surface of the steel. This layer prevents it from further corrosion. The primary elements in the steel made for hard anodized cookware are iron, chromium, manganese, silicon, carbon and sometimes traces of nickel and molybdenum. When the steel is exposed to water or air, these alloying elements react with water and oxygen to form a thin stable film of corrosion products like metallic oxides and hydroxides. The reason why no rust is formed on the steel surface is because the stable film present which acts as a barrier to access of water or oxygen to the inner surfaces of the steel utensil. The rust which we see is the more visible corrosive layer commonly called as ‘rust’ which is prevented by the steel.

Chromium is an important part of the steel composition. In fact, there is 10% of chromium in their composition in all the steel utensils of the stainless steel utensils manufacturers in Delhi. This adds the ‘stainless’ tag of the steel. Steel utensils and tools have immensely popular in countries like India, Mexico and China. Another reason why it is favoured over other metals is because they do not need any paint, never corrodes under normal conditions and has lighter weight. This reduces the wear and tear costs making it the least expensive material cookware which is in use these days.

It is because of the rust free properties of the steel cookware which successfully counters the growing food poisoning and water contamination cases in the developing countries. So much so that the its chemical nature is almost inert to the acids or alkalis released by cooked food and additives, etc. Stainless steel cookware has also flourished in the households due to the ease in cleaning them, maintenance of hygiene and sanitation etc. Steel is relatively easy metal to be molded in the shape and vessel of choice which makes it easy to make almost anything starting from fork, spoon to the larger vessels like sauce pan and handi. In the years to come, the stainless steel manufacturers in India are set to see a high demand for stainless steel utensils which would bolster the robust industrial recovery in the emerging economies. Sourabh Steel is one of the best steel utensil manufacturers which are on the forefront to produce stainless steel utensils which are known for its corrosion-resistant property which distinguishes it from the other metals.

What Utensils Do I Buy For My Induction Cooker?

Many new cookers nowadays incorporate induction cooking, but due to its particularities of operation and being a relatively new concept raises many doubts to buy the suitable induction cookware.

stainles steel dishes

In this article induction designers try to answer the frequent question: Will it serve me with induction?

How induction works?

An induction cooktop creates electromagnetic field. This variable electromagnetic field stimulates heating of utensils made of ferromagnetic material when it comes into contact with the device plate.

In other words, it is important to understand that the induction hob only heats up if it comes in contact with magnetic metals, to which a magnet would stick, such as iron or stainless steel of some kinds. So, if you place a ceramic plate on an induction plate, for example, it will not heat up even if you turn it on — the magnetic field has no effect on ceramic.

The great advantage of induction cookers is that the pan is heated directly; In a standard glass ceramic plate, the electrical resistances are heated first, which in turn transmit the heat to the container placed on top, with the least efficiency that this entails. Induction heats much faster, with consequent energy savings.

Cookware for induction

The answer to which products are suitable for induction cooking is clear: any product that has an iron or ferromagnetic steel base. Among these utensils, you find induction pots, induction pans and induction cooker pots, among others. Nothing that only contains aluminum, terra cotta, ceramic, glass or copper will work.

  1. Frying pans suitable for induction

All pans made up of ferromagnetic material (iron pans), or those which have a special diffusing base made of ferromagnetic material, are suitable for induction.

There are also cheaper pans on the market that lack a diffuser bottom, one should prefer diffuser bottom pans because it also gives greater strength to induction parts: it is more difficult for the pan to deform. Thus, you will see that all the non – stick pans and stainless-steel utensils(pans) are suitable for induction.

  1. Iron pans

Iron frying pans do not require any specific diffuser bottom for induction, since the entire frying pan is induction sensitive and completely heated.

In market, you will find iron pans that are not suitable for induction. This occurs because they are very thin and could be deformed (that is why the manufacturer will have indicated that they are not indicated for induction) or they have an alloy in % of iron that is not sufficient to induce).

  1. Cocottes and casseroles suitable for induction

Another good example is the cocottes: Branded cocottes are made of cast iron, perfect for induction.

  1. Stainless Steel: Induction Safe Batteries and Pots

Stainless steel cookware with a ferromagnetic stainless-steel base are also suitable for induction hobs. Be careful, not all stainless-steel utensils are of the ferromagnetic type, suitable for induction; There are old cookware made of non-magnetic stainless steel (which does not attract magnets) are not suitable for induction cookers.

But good quality stainless steel kitchenware or cookware with ferromagnetic stainless-steel diffuser base works wonders in induction cookers. Exactly the same will happen to fast waves: if we talk about a current and quality pressure cooker, they will all have a diffuser bottom suitable for induction.

Induction cookware size

Another common question is the size of the utensils to use with induction. It is not necessary that the size of the base of the utensil has the same diameter as the fire where you plan to use it.

Unlike in ceramic cookers, in modern induction cookers it is not necessary to cover the entire surface of the fire for heating to be efficient, since they adapt to the size of the utensil that you use. That is, if the base is smaller than the fire, only the surface that is in contact will heat up.

Care In Stainless Steel Pots And Pans

The stainless steel is a fabulous material for use in the kitchen: it is durable, healthy, perfect for cooking at high temperature and demand few requirements when it comes to maintenance.

Fry-pan-saurbh-steel

Both, stainless steel kitchenware (pots, pans, plates) and accessories (tongs, spatulas, ladles, knives) are found in any kitchen. These utensils can last you many years. There are only two disadvantages with them:

  1. You have to get used to cooking in them, because it is easy for food to stick.
  2. Although one of the advantages is that they do not rust and are easy to maintain. If they are used improperly, they can present some cleaning problems that are difficult to solve.

Today, kitchen experts are going to address a recurring question in the store: what precautions should be taken when using stainless steel utensils, and how to remove certain stains.

Care when using stainless steel utensils

  • Before using them, remove all the labels and wash with a sponge with hot soapy water to remove any dirt that may come from the factory.
  • When heating the pot or pan you are going to use, make sure that the flame or the induction or vitro disc is not larger than the base of the utensil.
  • Do not leave empty utensils on a heat source (unless you need to heat it for a few seconds before adding the oil).
  • When removing the saucepan, pot or frying pan from the heat, be sure to leave it on a suitable surface.
  • If you need to throw salt, always dissolve it in boiling water: pour it when the water is hot and stir, to ensure that it does not settle to the bottom. If it does not dissolve correctly, it could leave some whitish spots on the bottom.
  • Avoid leaving food in pans and pots for a long time, because the salt that they incorporate could leave stains.
  • If it is still hot, do not put the stainless-steel plates in direct contact with cold water to avoid deformations.
  • Avoid cleaning them with a scouring pad, to avoid scratches on the surface (although, if any, they do not affect the proper functioning of it).
  • They can be perfectly washed in the dishwasher; they do not rust. Although it is always recommended to wash with a sponge to maintain its original shine.
  • Try to clean the pans, saucepans and pots immediately after using them, to ensure that the remains of water and food do not leave stains.
  • Ideally, dry the utensils after cleaning them (otherwise, the remains of water can generate lime stains).

How to Clean Stains from Stainless Steel

  • In case of embedded food, leave the stainless-steel tiffin to soak in hot water with dish detergent for several hours. You can also use hot water with vinegar.
  • In the case of heavily embedded foods, after the soaking time you can help yourself with a dish cleaning brush or a harder sponge. Avoid using scouring pads to avoid scratches on the surface.
  • In the case of stains caused by the starch that certain foods leave during cooking, such as pasta or rice, you can easily remove them with a sponge and soap, or with a cloth with lemon juice or vinegar.
  • It is easy to leave water stains, produced by lime and other minerals that the water incorporates. You can remove them with a little sodium bicarbonate: add a little bicarbonate, rub it with a damp cloth, rinse and dry instantly. You can also clean them with a little vinegar and a soft cloth.

Ceramic, Teflon, Cast Iron or Stainless-Steel Skillet? Which is better?

The ceramic , cast iron, Teflon and stainless steel utensils are 4 types of kitchenware that people usually use in their cooking area. Ceramic and Teflon are nonstick and are used to delicate foods. While stainless steel and cast iron are sturdy and ideal for more elaborate dishes.

stainless-steel-utensils

Ceramic frying pan vs. Teflon frying pan

The main difference between ceramic pans and Teflon pans lies in the non-stick composition of their coating. Teflon is part of many people’s kitchens, but unfortunately, when heated to a certain temperature, it releases substances that are not very friendly to the human body.

Because many people tend to cook at high temperatures and are more informed than ever before, the popularity of ceramic pans has increased and become a new alternative for housewives.

On the other hand, ceramic-coated pans are often lead, cadmium, PFOA and PTFE- free because they are made from natural minerals. Therefore, there is no danger of toxic substances leaking into your food or into the air you breathe while cooking. In addition, it is not necessary to cook at high temperatures due to its excellent heat conduction.

Ceramic frying pan vs. stainless steel frying pan

The distinguishing feature between ceramic utensils and Stainless-steel dinner set is that one is nonstick and the other is not. However, ceramic cookware should be used on low to medium heat, while stainless steel utensils are stronger and can withstand high temperatures.

Stainless steel tiffin can be used with metal utensils without the worry of peeling. Also, there will be no problem if you put this skillet in the oven or grill. This is one of the main reasons why it is used so much in restaurants, since it lends itself to different preparations.

However, if you need a frying pan for daily use without so many demands, the ceramic frying pan will be more than enough and you will not have to worry about food sticking to the surface. And, in case it happens, cleaning it will be quick and easy.

Ceramic vs. Teflon vs. stainless steel gift items

Each frying pan has a specific use, even each one is intended for amateur chefs and chefs with extensive knowledge of the cooking times of each food. Despite everyone’s shortcomings, it’s still handy to have a ceramic or Teflon nonstick skillet for making scrambled eggs or frying fish.

However, if you have a restaurant and need a durable frying pan, the stainless-steel cookware will be ideal, since you can work both on low and high heat without fear of damage to its coating. In addition, you can use it in stoves, ovens or grills, you just have to have more experience so that the food does not stick.

Cast iron skillet

Cast iron pan is the only one that requires a higher than average level of expertise compared to ceramic and Teflon.

Where’s the trick and the difficulty? These require constant vigilance and care to keep them non-stick. This means that it cannot be washed in the dishwasher or with heavy detergents. They should be cleaned by hand after each use with oil and salt.

Why Use Stainless Steel in Your Commercial Kitchen?

Have you ever wondered why you should use stainless steel? There are many reasons why food businesses acquire this metal. For many, there is nothing better than a commercial kitchen equipped with stainless steel products because of all the benefits it provides.

If you are thinking of opening your own restaurant and you are still not sure that this alloy is the best for you, in the following article, you will find all the information you will need to make a final decision.

100%

Easy to clean

Stainless steel is used in commercial kitchens and food processing plants because it is easy to clean and is a non-porous material, meaning it cannot absorb moisture like other materials (for example, wood).

This makes it a safe option for environments where it is essential to prevent the growth of bacteria and viruses.

Requires little maintenance

Because scratches are difficult to cause on its surface, Stainless steel cookware requires very little maintenance. In the event of any damage, you will only need a metal cleaner and a soft cloth for the material to regain its original appearance.

While Formica surfaces can crack or break under stress or impact, stainless steel is strong enough to withstand bumps.

It may cost a bit more than other materials, but you won’t need to replace it in a long time. If you take care of it as it should, your stainless steel equipment will last beyond its useful life.

Better efficiency in the kitchen

Food preparation tables made from stainless steel plates play an essential part in any commercial kitchen, as they allow staff to prepare multiple foods at the same time.

These not only increase kitchen productivity, but they also minimize the risk of cross-contamination.

Hygiene’s norm

Sanitation laws state that each meal or food station must have a sink throughout the facility (near the bar, in the kitchen, in the staff restrooms).

Stainless steel sinks are a must for these businesses. Decide on a long, deep design to keep dishes and kitchen supplies clean. As for the sinks, go for a small one: Due to its limited capacity, your kitchen staff won’t be tempted to use it for activities other than cleaning your hands, such as rinsing vegetables.

To serve and store food

The buffets and carveries are a popular culinary trend, but pose potential health risks due to cross-contamination of food and damage them.

Stainless steel broilers or pots can prove to be good insulators and regulators; they will be able to keep your products at a desired and safe temperature.

Useful for cooking

Unlike Teflon cookware, stainless steel cookware is sturdy; they are not prone to chipping, rusting or staining if properly cared for.

Additionally, these metal appliances have at least 5 layers that allow a uniform heat flow and durability, while aluminum appliances conduct heat in the internal layers, which is not desirable outside due to its corrosive properties.

Cleaning tips

At the end of a busy day in a commercial kitchen, your Stainless steel kitchenware, sinks, and shelves can end up dirty.

To clean stainless steel products, use cleaning products suitable for this material, so you will remove any residue or stain very easily and leave a shiny finish.

Remember to never use steel wool to clean stainless steel products, as you could scratch or leave pieces of metal that could contaminate food.
