Stainless Steel Buckets and Pots

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Stainless steel is the apex of building materials – stronger than plastic and more weather resilient than metal or wood. For the best quality buckets available – heirloom buckets – nothing outclasses stainless steel.

A Disease Destroying Surface

Stainless steel is like Death Valley, Nevada for bacteria. Tiny life can’t find a purchase on its bright, smooth surface. That’s why commercial kitchens and surgery rooms are absolutely covered in SS. It’s best to use stainless steel any time where hygiene matters.

Keeping Stainless Steel Fresh

Stainless steel isn’t invincible. Its surface can be damaged by nearby non-stainless steel residue or rust particles. And watch out when it comes to cleaning products! Certain chemicals such as hydrochloric acid react negatively with your stainless steel equipment, drastically reducing the lifespan of your stainless, leaving you with just plain old rusty steel.

The best advice regarding cleaning stainless steel is to maintain it as close to its original appearance as possible.

Chili Cookoff Compatible

Unlike any other common bucket material, steel won’t buckle or melt with 450 degrees of heat underneath it. That’s why we have special 5 gallon kitchen buckets called stock pots. You might be preparing a great american chili or testing a microbrew recipe. Either way you’ll be doing it in stainless steel.

Animals and the Great Outdoors

A standard metal bucket might start out in impeccable shape, but leave it out in the rain just once and its condition starts to snowball toward the proverbial “rust bucket.” So if you have outdoor livestock and you don’t want them eating out of plastic, use a stainless steel feed or watering bucket.

Ice Cold Stainless Steel

You’ll never find an ice bucket at a hotel made from anything else unless it’s a really fancy place that uses leather. It’s the ease of cleaning, antimicrobial attributes and long useful lifetime that make it the superior choice.
