Stainless steel catering equipment can be easily cleaned by wiping down with a damp cloth and your standard degreasing or antibacterial cleaning spray. Its smooth flat surface means it cannot trap any dirt, making it the most hygienic material available.

Hygiene is the most important aspect within a commercial kitchen, and because of this, stainless steel is the best choice for a commercial kitchen. Stainless steel is non-porous
and does not harbour bacteria - making it a great choice. Even if stainless steel surfaces become scratched, it does not affect the use of the product. With the use of a sanitising spray the stainless steel surface will be bacteria free.
Taste of food
Stainless steel doesn’t affect the flavour of any foods. It is the most sanitary of metal surfaces in the restaurant industry and is used often in both restaurants and hospitals as a result of this. It will not react with any foods, condiments or spices used during food preparation. Many other surfaces react with foods to impart their taste upon them.
Unlike many materials, stainless steel is heat proof and corrosive resistant and therefore will not chip or crack, making it the perfect material for areas of high wear and tear.
Stainless steel is neutral in appearance and will make any kitchen preparation area look smart and tidy. Some people may find the traditional stainless steel finish too shiny and in this case a brushed finish may be preferable.
