Why does Stainless Steel rust?
A complete modernization of a space is never a bad idea. And more so in the kitchen, which is one of those places where everything has a destination and a very specific function. Think about the cabinets that you currently have in your industrial kitchen. Don't you think that some stainless steel kitchen cabinets would really suit you? Wouldn't you like to replace the ones you already have?
This very modern looking furniture offers you enormous advantages in functional and aesthetic terms. They are extremely solid, durable, and practical. They can be designed just the way you need them, so that they harmonize with the rest of your kitchen while offering you very high levels of hygiene.
Next, we will tell you what stainless steel is and why it turns out to be the perfect material for all the furniture, utensils and elements of your industrial kitchen. Our stainless steel cabinets, as you will see, represent the forefront of design and versatility. Stay until the end to definitely convince yourself.
Before you know what are the reasons why having stainless steel furniture and utensils is a great idea, it is important to know a little about what stainless steel is and why, not only in the kitchen but throughout the industry in In general, it turns out to be the ideal material.
The benefits of stainless steel, since its discovery at the beginning of the 20th century, have been significant in almost all human activities since then. The industrial revolution had to go through many difficulties, since they mainly used iron which, despite being a particularly hard and resistant material, quickly yielded to the undesirable effect of humidity: oxidation.
Thus, when it was discovered that by adding a percentage of chromium to iron (between 10.5 and 12%), a metallic alloy that is especially hard, resistant, shiny and -the best- able to withstand the ravages of humidity and corrosive materials, the industry experienced the arrival of a material that changed the quality standards of the products it offered.
That's not to mention the types of stainless steels that were eventually developed, with even more special properties, suitable for other new applications. You should know that it was also combined -although to a lesser extent- with nickel, carbon or magnesium.
Within all the applications that were found for stainless steel, in the food industry and health sector they knew how to take advantage of it enormously. As you know, stainless steel is a smooth material like few others, whose hard surface gives it a very high resistance to scratches and dents.
And, apart from being visibly attractive, what does it mean that it does not scratch? That there is no place for bacteria or microorganisms potentially dangerous to health to proliferate. In other words, it was soon discovered that stainless steel was especially functional in hospitals, clinics, restaurants and, especially, in Industrial kitchens.
In short, here are all the advantages that stainless steel can represent in your kitchen:
Industrial furniture whose only merit is to be aesthetically attractive is of little use. But if they are visually appealing and comfortable to work with, they are more valuable. However, if they are beautiful, useful and comfortable, they are an exceptional piece of furniture that is worth having.
In this sense, stainless steel kitchen cabinets combine these three aspects that we value so much in industrial kitchen furniture. They combine comfort, utility and aesthetics. Although things seem obvious, many times they are not; in the question about the elemental of things you often find sophisticated and unsuspected relationships that, when applied to reality, offer you much superior products.

It is a very innocent question, but by answering it you will know what you are looking for in a cabinet. Furniture, as everyday material objects, is defined by the function it fulfills.
