Silicone Kitchenware Has Become the New Favorite in the Kitchen Industry
Compared with traditional kitchen utensils, silicone kitchen utensils have the advantages of long service life, good stability, non-corrosion, temperature resistance and non-toxicity. More importantly, it will not cause harm and burden to the natural environment and human body, and it is a new choice for kitchen and home for those who pay attention to health and environmental protection. Maybe people don't have much contact and understanding of the silicone industry and its products, but in fact, the global silicone industry has a long history of development. Since the invention of the silicone tube in the 18th century confirmed the beginning of the development of the silicone industry, it has been booming to this day.
In fact, custom silicone products have quietly entered our daily family life. I believe that many people can find out when watching short videos of gourmet baking that the baking scrapers and oil brushes used by many food creators are no longer traditional plastic, wood or metal products, but are replaced by silicone kitchen utensils. There are people in demand, and businesses and brands that focus on production will naturally be derived. Why do food bloggers and brands give up traditional materials in the choice of kitchenware materials, and choose silicone kitchenware?
1. Silicone kitchenware is derived from nature, and the material is environmentally friendly
For the sake of lightness and low price, many kitchen utensils are more or less plastic. However, the white pollution caused by plastic has caused serious harm to water quality, soil and resources. With the continuous innovation of the ecological civilization system, green development has become a social consensus. Silica gel is a green and environmentally friendly material, 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 of silicone kitchenware
Consumers who have used plastic kitchenware should know that most plastic products may be able to hold boiling water, but they should never be used for frying. Even plastics with better quality have higher temperature resistance, mostly around 120°C, and the frying temperature can generally reach around 200°C.
Silicone kitchen utensils are flexible in texture and have a strong advantage in thermal stability (temperature resistance range -40 ° C ~ 230 ° C). This feature makes the safety and stability of silicone far higher than even food-grade plastic materials, making it more reassuring in kitchenware applications.
As a professional silicone rubber products manufacturer, we provide a full range of kitchen silicone products, allowing you to eat healthier and more assured.
3. Silicone kitchenware is antibacterial and mildew-resistant, easy to clean
In addition to plastic, metal and wood products are also common materials for traditional kitchenware. However, due to 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 being in a humid environment or affected by the season, it is easy to grow mold, burying a greater safety hazard to the body. Silica gel benefits from the macromolecular microporous structure, is insoluble in water or any solvent, and is a highly active adsorption material. In practical applications, silica gel is often used as an adsorbent or desiccant. Therefore, after the silicone kitchen utensils are used, the liquid cannot be dissolved and can be air-dried immediately, which is not easy to breed mold. In the cooking environment with high grease, salt and vinegar, it is not easy to be corroded by oil, salt and vinegar.
To sum up, compared with kitchenware made of traditional materials, silicone rubber products in kitchen have the advantages of long service life, good stability, not easy to corrode, temperature resistance and non-toxicity. More importantly, it will not cause harm and burden to the natural environment and human body, and it is a new choice for kitchen and home for those who pay attention to health and environmental protection.
