When it comes to the heart of the most the sink is arguably the most beaten and battered area and also the one of the most important because not only does it influence the hygiene of your kitchen but also the hygiene of every morsel of food you put into your mouth prepared in your kitchen. This brings us to the beauty of stainless steel sinks and 6 of its incredible perks.
- Corrosion can go home
Stainless steel is an alloy manufactured with the addition of chromium to low carbon steel along a variety of other elements to enhance its properties. This not only renders a metal which is resistant to rust even with continuous exposure to moisture and oxygen but also a metal which has a unique self-healing property. So, the chromium in stainless steel forms a chromium oxide film on exposure to oxygen whenever there is a slight scratch or damage on the sink’s surface.
- Impeccable strength
Stainless steel undergoes a process of cold work hardening which imparts great strength to the metal so you do not have to worry about creating dents and bumps in your sink even if you accidentally drop a stone mortar from your slippery cleaning hands. The hardening of the metal also increases its tensile strength which makes it possible for manufacturers to mould the sink into a shape and size that delivers the best.
- Strong in every temperature
Quality stainless steel sinks will resist scaling while maintain strength at surprisingly high temperatures as well as freezing cold temperatures. So pour out that scalding hot starch from our rice or throw out a bucket of stale ice without causing even the slightest damage to your sink.
- Easy to clean
You can only hope to keep a kitchen clean if you keep the place where you clean everything thoroughly clean. Stainless steel kitchen sinks are super easy to clean. You can either us a generic cleaner from the shelves of your grocery store or make a home-made all natural cleaner with baking soda and vinegar. If you wish to disinfect your sink then plug the drain, fill it with warm water and add a little bit of bleach to it. Let it sit for a while and then let the water flush out of the drain along with all traces of dirt and germs.
- Only adds to the aesthetic
The sparking silvery shine of the stainless steel in your kitchen adds a subtle touch of glam to your whole kitchen. However, make sure to keep the sink clean to maintain its shine as it was when it arrived at your doorstep.
- Eco friendly
The importance of being aware and helping the environment in whatever way you can is more important than ever in today’s day and age when mother earth is literally being smothered by us. Take a step towards healthy living by opting for a stainless steel sink which is an easily recyclable metal. It is also beneficial to your own health because there is no chance of leaching toxin when it comes to steel.
