Stainless steel countertops are popular choices in many professional kitchens. A steel countertop can advantageously appear as a practical and complimentary element in conjunction wth other countertop materials
The surface of stainless steel is smooth and solid, making it easy to maintain – even in industrial kitchens. Daily cleaning is done with a wrung-out cloth in clean, warm water. Steel countertops should be wiped with a dry cloth to avoid limescale deposits.
The countertop can be welded together so that dirt and bacteria cannot hide in joints and cracks.
To preserve the shine and optically minimize scraches, you can care for the steel countertop with oil (for example, mineral/paraffin oil such as old-fashioned baby oil.
- The oil is applied and rubbed in lightly with a soft cloth.
- Leave on for 10 minutes.
- Wipe the countertop with a dry, clean cloth until the countertop is grease-free.
The steel surface is completely closed and the countertop therefore absorbs neither water nor dirt, which makes it very resistant to stains.
Dried stains are easily removed with warm water and detergent.
