I'm thinking of stainless steel in my kitchen
Inox is omnipresent in the kitchen: it is found in credence, worktop, vat or cabinet hood, but also for furniture and appliances. Giving a "pro" touch to the kitchen, the stainless steel with its silver aspect is easily combined with most decorative choices. It is a very resistant material, which supports high cooking temperatures and also corrosion. In addition, it does not retain dirt.
But it also has a bad reputation: it should be known that as and when used, the stainless steel will tend to tarnish. Fingerprints are hard to remove. Also, it is better to privilege treated stainless so-called "anti-trace", the maintenance easier. As for its vulnerability to scratches of all kinds, it is today counterbalanced by new finishes of the type "worn", microdécor or structured. In addition, some tanks or basins can receive a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) treatment, making them four times more resistant to scratches.
