Material of kitchen tools

  1. 1. Materials of Kitchen Utensils and Equipment
  2. 2. Aluminum • Is best for all use. It is the most popular, lightweight, attractive and less expensive. It requires care to keep shiny and clean. Much more, it gives even heat distribution no matter what heat temperature you have. It is available in sheet or cast aluminum. Since it is a soft metal, the lighter gauges will dent and scratch easily, making the utensils unusable. When aluminum turns dark acid vegetables will brighten it.
  3. 3. Stainless Steel • The most popular material used for tools and equipment, but it is more expensive. It is easier to clean and shine and will not wear out as soon as aluminum. Choose those copper, aluminum or laminated steel bottoms to spread heat and keep the pot from getting heat dark spots.
  4. 4. Glass • Is good for baking but not practical on top and surface cooking. Great care is needed to make sure for long shelf life.
  5. 5. Cast Iron • Is sturdy but must be kept seasoned to avoid rust. Salad oil with no salt or shortening can be rubbed inside and out and dry. Wash with soap before using.
  6. 6. Ceramic and Heat-Proof Glass • Is used especially for baking dishes, casseroles and measuring cups. Glass and ceramic conduct the heat slowly and evenly. Many of these baking dishes are decorated and can go from stove or oven to the dining table.
  7. 7. Teflon • Is a special coating applied to the inside of some aluminum or steel pots and pans. It helps food from sticking to the pan. It is easier to wash and clean, however, take care not to scratch the coating with sharp instrument.
  8. 8. Plastic and Hard Rubber • Are used for cutting and chopping boards, table tops, bowls, trays, garbage pails and canisters. They are much less dulling to knives than metal and more sanitary than wood. Plastics are greatly durable and cheap but may not last long.
