I am very grateful to all of you for reading the articles of Xiaobian in the busy schedule. Your reading and comments are the motivation for Xiaobian to continue to create.
 
Stainless steel pots are available in almost every household, but do you know about the safety and hygiene of the pot? Common models of stainless steel products, such as 304, 316, 420, do you know its significance?
 
As modern people pay more and more attention to health, various products come into being, and pots are no exception. Among them, stainless steel pots are also popular among consumers because of their stability and durability. The types of stainless steel are also very diverse. With the misinformation of various false advertisements, can you really distinguish the characteristics of various stainless steels?
 
Common stainless steel types
 
304: Commonly known as "white iron", this can be said to be the most common type of stainless steel, commonly used in many food industries, such as mugs, pots, bowls, etc.
 
316: Recently, the mainstream, claiming to be better than 304, even has the nickname "medical steel", mostly used in the food industry, surgical equipment.
 
Due to its high carbon content and high hardness, the 420:400 series of stainless steels are suitable for making tools, especially scalpels, to prevent some patients from being allergic to nickel.
 
 
It can be seen that the 300 series and 400 series stainless steels are all suitable for making food containers, and the European, American and Japanese countries have strict testing standards for food containers, in a 95 degree high temperature, 0.5% citric acid test environment. It is impossible to detect three kinds of toxic substances such as lead, cadmium and arsenic. Therefore, no matter which type of stainless steel is used, it is impossible to detect these three kinds of toxic substances. It is safe to use, and many manufacturers claim that 316 stainless steel belongs to "Medical level", it is not difficult to see that it is just a propaganda technique. 420 stainless steel is suitable for making knives, especially scalpels, to prevent some patients from being allergic to nickel.
 
 
In this case, what is the current use of 316 stainless steel?
 
 
316 stainless steel is mainly used in high-chlorine environments, such as chemical raw materials, shipbuilding, food industry pipelines, etc., because such environments are highly corrosive, high purity 316 can meet stringent standards, and currently known in the market Most products made of 316 material cannot meet such high standards of purity.
 
Black hard-to-wash stainless steel
 
All kinds of products have their advantages and disadvantages, stainless steel is no exception, has its inherent shortcomings. For example: heavy weight, oil must be used in cooking, in order to achieve the effect of non-stick pan, otherwise it will easily lead to the coke black, not easy to clean. These characteristics can be said to be common to stainless steel, and will not avoid the above phenomenon because of the use of 316 material. When we face the various propaganda terms of the manufacturer, if we can understand the characteristics of stainless steel, we will not fall into the specifications. Myths, naturally, will not be led by manufacturers.
 
 
5 key points for selecting pots
 
So what are the precautions when we buy stainless steel pots? Consumers are advised to follow the following 5 points to pick the right one.
 
1, do not deliberately choose the model: as long as the stainless steel has passed the product inspection, then the safety is naturally higher than the product that has not passed the inspection.
 
2, the material is heavy: because it is too light and thin material, once used for cooking, it will soon be easy to burn black, difficult to clean.
 
3, the surface is meticulous: If you find that the surface of the pot is too rough, do not buy, because the gap is easy to hide dirt, not easy to clean.
 
4, no need to raise the pot: usually recommend that consumers need to take oil, vinegar, rice water and other pot manufacturers, said that they did not completely remove the industrial oil in the production process, so they will be required to handle their own.
 
5, ergonomics: If the weight distribution is not uniform, even if the installation position of the pot ear is not right, not strong, it is prone to burns, or accidents of sprained wrists, but it is not worth the candle.
 
If you want to buy a good pot that is high quality, durable and healthy, you must understand the manufacturer's words and product characteristics, so that you can buy a good pot for you!
