Is ‘stainless steel’ the same as ‘steel’?
No. While both are alloys known for their strength, stainless steel is considerably more expensive because of its many added benefits. Stainless steel was discovered more than 100 years ago and is most revered for its non-corroding, non-staining, non-porous, antibacterial properties. There are also different grades of stainless steel, each of which has its benefits in different applications. At DALCINI™, we use a high-quality food grade . It is the type used in commercial kitchens and hospitals around the world.
Are DALCINI™ containers dishwasher safe? I have other stainless steel products and they are "handwash only".
There are many reasons why some stainless steel products are handwash only, or "not recommended" for the dishwasher. It may be the delicate exterior paint finish, the chemical resins that leach when heated, or it may be because of the interior seam that weakens. It could be because of the non-dishwasher safe parts such as the clasps, lids, seals, straws. At DALCINI™, we make life less complicated. All of our products are dishwasher safe. We pay careful attention to the design, finish and grade of stainless steel with each product. We've done the work, so you don't have to. Go ahead, free up some time and put your DALCINI™ containers in the dishwasher!
Can they go in the refrigerator or microwave?
Refrigerator- Yes. The containers are excellent for storing all types of leftovers, including the most fragrant or acidic foods. You can finally goodbye to tomato sauce stains or lingering food odours often found with other containers.
Microwave- No. These are metal product and should never be used in a microwave
Are the containers leakproof?
Leak proof yes, but not liquid proof. This means they will securely hold fruits, vegetables, crackers, cheese and other dry goods very well. They even hold juicy watermelon or cantaloupes with no issue. They are not ,however, designed to store liquids such as soup.
