Commercial Kitchen Design Tip #14
Stainless steel design is ubiquitous in commercial kitchens and has become a staple in many residential kitchens as well—with good reason. A professional stainless steel kitchen has many benefits to its users. There's really no limit to how you can use stainless steel design in any space to lift the area and at the same time create a workspace that can take pretty much anything you throw at it.
Stainless steel design is commonly used because it's durable and high quality. The material itself is an alloy of different metals, but the ratio of the components can vary and this will affect the quality of the steel. For a professional stainless steel kitchen you want the best possible steel so it's a good idea to be on the lookout for stainless steel of at least 304 grade (18/10) stainless steel. That means that the stainless steel is made up of 18% chromium and 10% nickel and the end-product is of good quality. Chromium helps stop deterioration whilst nickel gives real strength to the steel.
As a general rule, the higher the ratio of chromium and nickel in the steel, the better the quality will be so if you're planning or designing a commercial kitchen it is probably worthwhile to invest in good quality stainless steel for its longevity and design.
