Stainless Steel Kitchen Worktop
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron and chromium, and may also contain nickel, molybdenum and other elements, which has higher physic-chemical properties than ordinary steels. Stainless steel tops are generally chosen for their high resistance to atmospheric oxidation and corrosion in addition to their hygienic appearance. Stainless steel worktops are also to some extent environmentally friendly, as such material is recyclable.
There’s a reason most professional kitchens have stainless steel worktops and that’s because of it’s extremely hygienic. This client of ours, whose kitchen is pictured above, wanted stainless steel worktops because she runs a cooking school out of her home and trusted it to be robust enough.
