Microwave ovens have three typical characteristics: penetrating, absorbing and reflecting. The principle of operation is to oscillate and heat water molecules and proteins, sugars and other accumulating molecules in the food, so that the kinetic energy of the microwave is converted into thermal energy of the food and heat is absorbed. Using paper, porcelain, glass containers, microwaves will penetrate the container to heat the food, but will be reflected when encountered with metal, so metal containers are generally not used as a microwave oven to heat up food utensils.
The use of metal containers in the microwave oven heating has many disadvantages. First of all, microwaves are reflected can not be quickly heated; reflected irregular electromagnetic waves and metal collision will also occur sparks, there are security risks; in addition, the electromagnetic echo on the magnetron emission tube will reduce the long-term lifespan of the microwave oven!
Under general high-temperature disinfection, stainless steel can be placed in a disinfection cabinet and dried, sterilized, and disinfected by ultraviolet, far-infrared, high-temperature, ozone, and other methods on tableware, towels, clothing, beauty and hair tools, medical equipment, and other items. Most of the cabinet materials are made of stainless steel, and attention should be paid to the combination of special techniques such as gold and printing, as well as stainless steel materials, to avoid high-temperature fading and oxidation.
Stainless steel containers can be placed in the oven. Oven containers are usually metal-based materials, because metal containers have a good heat transfer effect, can quickly heat the food well. Stainless steel containers belong to metal utensils, can be used in the oven Oven temperature is generally within 50-250 ° C, stainless steel containers of high temperature resistance of up to 800 ° C, in 250 ° C or less in the temperature of the use of its physical stability is better.
Stainless steel utensils are not affected when placed in the dishwasher.
But you need to pay attention to the following metal tableware.
- Silver products. Try to wash them immediately to avoid salt or acidic food staining. Do not wash with stainless steel and copper products.
- Copper products.Do not wash with silver or stainless steel products togetheras it may make them discolored.
- Aluminum products.Maycause the color fade or darken.
- Cast iron products.They are easy to rust.
- Rusty gold products.The surface is easily discolored.
- Tin-lead alloy products. The color iseasy to fade or darken.
- Tin products. They areeasy to rust.
- Lead crystal glass products.The surface may be worn or etched.
Can be used on the induction cooker depends on whether there’s magnetic steel at the bottom of 304/316 pots. There are magnetic and non-magnetic stainless steel. Magnetic ones are generally type 201, 430, 433, which can be directly used for induction cooker. Non-magnetic ones such as type 304, 316, they can not be directly used for induction cooker.
