Stainless steel is easy to keep clean

Stainless steel has an exceptionally smooth surface that stands up well to disinfectants and makes it hard for bacteria to bind to and grow. As a result, stainless steel has become the material of choice for countless food-industry applications due to its hygienic qualities and the ease of cleaning that are ensured. The same benefits apply to everything from kitchen utensils to medical instruments – and other applications requiring the highest levels of safety and hygiene.
