6 quality features of stainless steel cabinets



Bacterial and Fungal Resistance

Stainless steel has a non-porous surface, so that no liquids, bacteria, fungus or mold can penetrate it. This means that bacteria, fungi, and dirt have nowhere to hide.

A simple wipe down with any products and it can be cleaned and sanitized quickly. Stainless steel is the first choice in hospitals and commercial kitchens as it is as sanitary as can be.  

Moisture Resistance

Stainless steel is made of low carbon steel that consists of chromium and nickel. Chromium makes it resistant to rust and corrosion.

Because rust isn’t an issue, moisture is not an issue. This means that stainless steel is perfect for outdoor spaces, sinks and high moisture areas.

Chemical Resistance

Stainless steel has significant chemical resistance.  Most salts, organic chemicals, solvents and biological stains are not an issue. Some acids and bases are also not an issue.

Because of the resistance, the salt from the sea or your pool, will have little effect to the cabinets. But, please do wipe down the cabinets routinely. The stainless is resistant but not chemical proof! It needs to be given some love to keep them for decades to come.


Heat Resistance  

Nickel in stainless steel is the chemical element that makes it heat resistant. It can sustain continuous heat exposure above 1500 °F. There may be some discoloration with prolonged high temperatures, but “it can take the heat”.The heat generated by your BBQ, Kamado or griddle does not come close to 1500 °F, meaning your stainless steel cabinets are safe from any heat the grills put out.



The metal composition of stainless steel makes it highly impact resistant. While stainless steel can be dented, it is relatively easy to fix minor imperfections by buffing it out. And, while stainless steel is not scratch resistant, it does maintain its aesthetic beauty over a long period of time.



Stainless steel is a recyclable material. The main alloying elements of stainless steel (chromium, nickel and molybdenum) are all highly valuable and can be easily be recovered and separated from other materials.

Today, where environmental issues are so important in saving and preserving our world, stainless steel is cleaner for the environment.
