Kitchen utensils are a part of furniture in life. At present, ordinary kitchen utensils are common to everyone. Now many families who pay attention to safety and environmental protection basically choose to use silicone materials. Silicone kitchen utensils and some other materials are gradually integrated into the kitchen industry. We are promoting the use of green ecological and environmental protection materials, so the silicone tableware industry will gradually enter every family in the future, so what are the characteristics of silicone tableware, and what are the benefits of using it?
1. Originated from nature, the material is environmentally friendly. In order to be light and cheap, many kitchen utensils will have more or less plastic. However, the white pollution caused by plastics has caused serious harm to water quality, soil, resources, and the environment. With the continuous innovation of the ecological civilization system, green development has become a social consensus. Silicone tableware is made of green and environmentally friendly materials, and its main component is silicon dioxide, which is common in nature, and will not cause harm and burden to the natural environment and the human body.
2. Material characteristics, healthy escort. Consumers who have used plastic kitchen utensils should know that most plastic products may be able to hold boiling water, but they can never be used for frying. Even for better-quality plastics, the highest temperature resistance is mostly around 120°C, and the frying temperature can generally reach around 200°C. The silicone used in silicone tableware is flexible and has a strong advantage in thermal stability (temperature resistance range -40°C to 230°C). dust. This feature makes the safety and stability of silicone much higher than even food-grade plastic materials, which is more reassuring in kitchenware applications.
3. Antibacterial and antifungal, easy to clean. In addition to plastic, metal and wood products are also common traditional kitchen utensil materials. But because of the high thermal conductivity of metal, it is easy to cause burns, and the fatal pain point of wood products is that after long-term soaking or in a humid environment or affected by the seasons, mold is easy to grow, which bury a greater safety hazard for the body. Silica gel benefits from the macromolecular microporous structure and is insoluble in water or any solvent. It is a highly active adsorption material. In practical applications, silica gel is often used as an adsorbent or desiccant. Therefore, after the silicone tableware is used, the liquid cannot be melted and can be air-dried immediately, which is not easy to breed mold. In the cooking environment with high fat, salt and vinegar, it is not easy to be corroded by oil, salt and vinegar.
