Stainless Steel Worktops
This may sound like a paradox, coming from a metal famed for its rigidity. In this instance however, we are referring not to steel's willingness to yield under the crushing blow of a tenderised steak, but rather to its customisable nature. Steel can be crafted into almost any conceivable shape, to maximise the available space and reduce wastage during the manufacturing process. So whether you need to fricassee an octopus in your sink or just want a countertop shaped like a Stegosaurus (we've all thought about it), stainless steel is the solution. Off-site custom stainless steel fabrication also minimises waste and reduces on-site installation time. Assuming you took your measurements accurately in the first place, your sink should just slot into place. All that's left to do then is hook up the plumbing and prepare to fricassee at will.Stainless steel worktops are have the least environmental impact...Due to its 100% recyclability, steel doesn't have to try too hard to gain full marks in the environmental department. So when the excitement over the Stegosaurus countertop finally dissipates, you can just have it turned into a T-Rex instead. Not content with being completely reusable however, steel's green credentials are further enhanced by its sustained lifespan - steel is impervious to almost every hazard known to man, including the dreaded zombie apocalypse. When the undead finally decide to walk the Canada Goose Chilliwack earth, barricade yourself in the nearest restaurant kitchen and you should be safe. As well as having a larder full of food to sustain you, just think of all those knives with which you can fight off the flesh-eating hordes when they come scavenging for scraps. Even if the ungrateful dead do make it past the rudimentary barricade you've thrown up and all hell breaks loose in the kitchen, at least the steel worktops shouldn't get scratched. Of course, that may be of little consolation in the heat of the moment, when your mates are turning into zombies in less time than it takes to scream 'Keep off the molybdenum worktops!' Later though, when you've vanquished the zombies and are steered with the task of rebuilding civilisation, you'll be grateful that your cherished worktops are still intact. It's the little things that get you through the day sometimes.Composite countertops just aren't cut out to handle the sustained abuse that invading hordes - or even just overzealous chefs - can inflict upon them. Just grabbed a hot pan that's rapidly burning your hands through the tea towel you deployed in place of oven-gloves? Slap that pan down on the worktop and give your scorched digits a breather - the trusty steel worktop won't mind a jolt. Try that with a composite countertop and you'll end up with a souffl-sized crater, for even the most advanced plastic material (such as Du Pont's Corian) is not completely heat-proof. Indeed, the Du Pont website claims that hot pans should not be placed directly on it. Herein lies the true reason why top chefs trust in stainless steel worktops: they can handle the searing skillets of the most hellish kitchens. So, is your kitchen destined for lukewarm tofu or searing steaks? With stainless steel, you can cook up whatever you want, however you want and make as much mess as you like in the process. Ditch those roasting hot griddles wherever you like; smear grease and gristle across every surface. Dinner comes first, the clean-up later. With nothing more troublesome than stainless steel to wipe down, that shouldn't take long.
