304 and 201Stainless steel has good corrosion resistance, durable and easy to clean, so many families will choose stainless steel products such as tableware and cookware.However, stainless steel products in the choice, use and care of a lot of attention, we will learn together.


Choose stainless steel products, 304 steel is recommended,304 steels (stainless steel with 18% chromium and 8% nickel) are widely used in corrosion-resistant containerstableware,furniture,railings and medical equipment.


Choose stainless steel products to look at the type marked.On stainless steel tableware, there are three kinds of codes: "13-0" (420 steel), "18-0" (430 steel) and "18-8" (304 steel).The safety of stainless steel vessels is mainly a problem of heavy metal migration.Generally speaking, the common 304 steel on the now has less chromium migration.


In order to use stainless steel products healthily, the following points should be paid attention to:


1.Foods containing salt and acid should not be stored in stainless steel for a long time.Stainless steel has good stability and corrosion resistance, but it does not mean that it will not be corroded or rusted. If salt, vinegar, etc. are stored in stainless steel products for a long time, it will lead to rust on its surface. Therefore, it is not recommended to use stainless steel products for household storage of such items.


2.Don't use stainless steel products to cook Chinese herbal medicines.Chinese herbal medicine composition is complex, mostly contains a variety of alkaloid, organic acid.When heated, it is easy to react with some components of stainless steel, making it less effective and possibly even more toxic.


3. Do not burn stainless steel products in the air.Compared with iron and aluminum products, stainless steel products have low thermal conductivity and slow thermal conduction.Finally, what should you pay attention to when cleaning stainless steel products?Stainless steel products have certain corrosion resistance, but no matter what, after a long delay will still breed bacteria, still have to be sterilized at intervals.When cleaning stainless steel products, avoid washing with strong alkali and strong oxidizing agents, such as alkaline water, soda and bleach, because these strong electrolytes will have an  "electrochemical reaction" with some components in the products, which will erode the stainless steel products and make them dissolve harmful elements.
