Stainless steel is, without question, the best material for use in food equipment and household appliances.
 

No other material can challenge stainless steel's supremacy in providing properties vital to end-users. These properties include remarkable corrosion resistance, temperature resistance, cleanability, durability, impact resistance and an attractive appearance.
 

Stainless steel is also a very hygienic material and totally neutral in food-contact contexts. Manufacturers also find in stainless steel a material that ideally suits their flat needs for forming, welding and polishing.
