Here at Munch we believe that our food should ideally be stored in food safe containers. We have previously explored whether food should be stored in plastic containers, and in this post we explore storing food in stainless steel containers.
There are many types of food containers that can be considered food safe. Stainless steel, glass, cast iron, wood, ceramics with lead-free glaze, rice husk and bamboo and silicone are the safest materials to use in the kitchen.
Benefits of storing food in stainless steel containers?
Stainless steel is one of the most common materials found in kitchens today. It’s used in everything from appliances to cookware, dishware, flatware and utensils because it is durable, easy to sanitize and corrosion resistant to various acids found in meats, milk, fruits and vegetables.
All our stainless steel products are made of the highest quality foodgrade stainless steel. There are a number of benefits to using stainless steel products to store your food. Stainless steel is:
- One of the safest materials for food storage as there are no chemicals that can migrate into your food from these products.
- Really easy-to-clean and can cleaned in the dishwasher.
- Virtually unbreakable.
- Resistant to stains and rust.
- Cost effective, and will save you money as it will out last any plastic equivalent.
- A zero waste to landfill product becuase it is enduring.
- Stylish and keeps looking good even with lots of use.
