Stainless steel ice cube

People who love whiskey must know stainless steel ice cubes. General ice cubes are able to cool rapidly but they would affect the taste of whisky. Stainless steel ice cubes, on the other hand, cool down much slower. They will not affect the taste of liquor and can be used repeatedly.

 

The magical principle of stainless steel ice cubes is that it is filled with ethanol at the interior to generate a cooling effect much lower than water. Such magical stainless steel ice cubes must be made of carefully ed 100% food-grade SUS 304 stainless steel.

 

There are many kinds of stainless steel materials, such as stainless steel #201, #304, #430, etc. The main reason for stainless steel to prevent rusting is the “nickel” content. The higher the nickel content in stainless steel, the greater it is to resist rusting and the higher the price is. So #316 is ranked as the highest grade and the most expensive stainless steel due to its highest nickel content, followed by stainless steel #304 and #430, and the lowest grade is stainless steel #201 due to its very high content of manganese. As stainless steel #201 is bad for the human body, so we must avoid using it.

 

Stainless steel #430 can be commonly seen in kitchen utensils as it does not contain nickel, but it is cheaper than #304 and #316 and has a high content of iron. Its corrosion resistance is poorer than #304 and will also rust after prolonged use. So while enjoying the advantages of stainless steel ice cubes to enhance the quality of life, it is also vital to choose safe material. Whisky and red wine lovers are recommended to use stainless steel ice cubes due to their high CP value.
 
 
Many types of materials can be used to make kitchen utensils. However, stainless steel is a very popular option as there is a need to clean food ingredients and tableware in the kitchen, so water- and corrosion-resistant stainless steel kitchen utensils are highly preferred. Of course, house owners can also choose other materials for their kitchen utensils depending on how they design the kitchens. My kitchen, for example, is dominated by stainless steel kitchen utensils, including a convenient area to place the pots and pot lids immediately after they have been washed. They are practical to use and can be maintained easily. I would like to recommend them for everybody as a reference.
