Safe Food…Anytime, Anywhere

Stainless Steel has long been used where food is being prepared as the kitchens on the Queen Mary, launched in 1934, demonstrate. Importantly, its corrosion resistance means it is perfectly neutral to foodstuffs so the taste and appearance of foods remain unchanged. And the fact that it is easy to clean makes it the ideal material for environments where strict hygienic conditions are important.

Today, stainless steel is the number one choice, particularly when the cooking area is in public view such as restaurants, cafes, fast food outlets and even in the ubiquitous burger van!
