Stainless Steel

Both traditional and contemporary, stainless steel works for most kitchen styles. Since it's a metal and nonporous, it doesn't have to be sealed and is naturally antibacterial. Another bonus, stainless steel is easy to clean with soap and water following the grain of the metal. Just be sure to dry with a clean cloth after to reduce water spots. For tough stains or scratches, stainless steel cleaner is available. Design by Barb Ince
