Stainless steel kitchen utensils are being used in more and more households because they are durable and easy to clean. However, improper maintenance of stainless steel kitchenware is also prone to spots and "rusting". Improper food storage can also cause stainless steel to chemically react with food.
This article teaches you how to maintain stainless steel kitchen utensils! 1. Keep stainless steel kitchen utensils clean. Usually do not use stainless steel tableware to hold tableware overnight, because long-term exposure to salt and water will cause the tableware to rust and deteriorate. Remember to keep the kitchen utensils clean and scrub frequently, especially after storing vinegar, soy sauce and other condiments, clean them in time to keep the kitchen utensils dry.
In this way, the kitchen utensils will not be corroded and defective, but also maintain a beautiful image. 2. Do not use strong alkali for cleaning. Stainless steel tableware should not be placed in acid, sauce, salt, wine, flour and other acid-base foods for a long time to prevent corrosion.
Do not let the utensils dry by themselves, wipe them with a towel, and try not to let the utensils get wet during storage. Do not use strong alkaline or strong oxidizing baking soda, bleaching powder, etc., because these substances will electrochemically react with stainless steel and cause the tableware to rust. Rusting of tableware will not only affect its appearance, but also reduce its service life.
3. Can be coated with vegetable oil to prolong the service life Before use, a thin layer of vegetable oil can be applied on the surface of the kitchen utensils, and then dried on the fire, which is equivalent to applying a protective film on the surface of the kitchen utensils. This facilitates cleaning and extends service life. 4. Wipe off water stains before heating After cleaning the stainless steel kitchen utensils, the water marks on the surface must be wiped clean.
Because when heated, sulfur dioxide and sulfur trioxide produced by combustion will generate sulfite and sulfuric acid when they meet water, which will affect the service life of tableware. Stainless steel tableware should be used frequently and should not be stored for a long time. Doing the above four points can not only keep the stainless steel kitchen utensils bright, but also prolong the service life.
