Stainless steel tables are highly durable and easy to disinfect, as stainless steel is non-porous and does not have any cracks. A stainless steel tabletop provides a flat work surface and does not absorb odors. Stainless steel generally does not rust, corrode or stain from water drops.
Because they are highly sanitary, stainless steel tables are typically used in restaurants for food preparation to help prevent food poisoning. Cooks can quickly disinfect their tabletops in between the preparation of different foods, such as vegetables and fish, without worrying about cross-contamination. The flat, slick surface of a stainless steel table is ideal for rolling out dough for making pizza or baked goods, and the material's resistance to odor absorption makes it ideal for cleaning fish.
