Why We Should Be Using Stainless Steel for Food Storage

Why We Should Be Using Stainless Steel for Food Storage

Jul 29, '21

Stainless steel doesn’t absorb bacteria nor does it leach chemicals, so storing your food in a stainless steel container can give you peace of mind when it comes to your health.

Stainless steel is non-staining and non-porous. Even the most fragrant of foods and the most colorful (tomato sauce doesn’t have to be the bane of your existence anymore) can be stored in a stainless steel container, without any evidence they were there after one single wash. These containers are refrigerator safe, making them a great option for leftovers or lunches. While they can’t be used in a microwave, they can go into an oven up to 450 degrees F.

Using stainless steel containers not only saves you money, time and your health woes, but it prevents more plastic waste from entering into landfill and the oceans, as the containers will last you years to come. Because these containers are BPA-free, don’t contain any silicone or plastic parts, or any chemical resins, they are not just 100% reusable, but also 100% recyclable for when you are through with them. Aluminum, along with stainless steel is infinitely recyclable. 75% of the tin cans and stainless steel products produced in the last 100 years are still in circulation! Knowing that your food container won’t be going to landfill is a huge added bonus!

Dalcini Stainless has specifically manufactured their containers to be seamless and without any tight corners. When there are seams in stainless steel, they must be joined using chemical adhesives. An epoxy resin is applied to prevent the food from coming in contact with the chemical adhesive. All of these chemicals, as you can imagine, contain things like lead, BPA, and other hormone-disruptors. Having a seamless design means that these containers are chemical and resin-free, as well as non-ridged, so bacteria has nowhere to hide.
