Test Your Kitchen IQ - Debunk Stainless Steel Myths!

Stainless steel - it's shiny, it's strong, and it seems like it can handle anything your kitchen throws at it. But there are some rumors floating around about this wonder metal. Are you a stainless steel whiz or do you need a refresher? Take this quiz to find out and debunk some common myths!

Myth #1: All stainless steel is the same.

True or False?

False! Think of it like clothes - different materials work better for different things. Stainless steel comes in various grades,and PDD Falcon uses the best kind for cooking: food-grade stainless steel (SS 304 or 18/8). This type resists rust, wear and tear, and won't let nasty chemicals seep into your food.

Myth #2: Stainless steel can't handle the heat!

True or False?

False! Good quality stainless steel can take the heat! It has a super high melting point, so it can handle your hottest stovetop or oven settings.

Myth #3: Stainless steel can never be non-stick.

True or False?

False! While it won't be as slippery as Teflon, good quality stainless steel can develop a non-stick layer over time if you take care of it properly. This means healthier cooking with less oil!

Myth #4: Stainless steel is dishwasher safe, but handwashing is better.

True or False?

Kind of true! PDD Falcon's stainless steel can go in the dishwasher. But for it to stay shiny and beautiful for years to come, handwashing with warm soapy water is best.

Myth #5: Stainless steel is heavy and clunky.

True or False?

Depends! Some thicker stainless steel pots and pans can be a bit heavy. But many PDD Falcon products use a special double-wall design. This keeps your food hot or cold, but it's also lighter and easier to handle.
