Stainless Steel Kitchens
Stainless steel got its start in the commercial world of food preparation. Highly durable, easy to clean and stain resistant it was the ideal material for the high traffic and demanding environment of the commercial kitchen. The nonporous nature of stainless means it is also very hygienic as it does not absorb liquids or allow for the growth of dangerous molds, fungus or bacteria.
Sometime in the early 1980's stainless steel began making it's way into the residential kitchen as a modern and fashionable look for new appliances. The dramatic visual impact of stainless over the drab tones of plastic appliances quickly gained it status as an upscale and fashionable alternative. Now it is common to see any high end appliances available in stainless steel and sales have increased steadily over time to now account for a large portion of new appliance sales.
Although it is extremely durable and stands up against the worst kitchen conditions of humidity, heat and grease, stainless steel does require regular cleaning to keep it's lustrous shine. Rejuvenate Stainless Steel cleaner and Polish is perfectly suited to maintain your stainless steel as it is a dual use product that strips away grease and grime then polishes to a brilliant finish. Another maintenance point concerns scratches and scrapes. Although the hygienic properties of Stainless Steel are not negatively affected by minor blemishes, the aesthetic impact may be considerable for those who desire a clean modern looking kitchen. Fortunately Rejuvenate also produces a Stainless Steel scratch eraser kit to remove minor blemishes from most any stainless steel appliance or surface.
