Large commercial kitchens with their own separate confectionary stations require the greater dimensions of 12 qts. - 14 qts. stainless steel double boilers to manage large quantities of desserts and sauces. One of the greatest benefits of stainless steel is the fact that it can be used on either induction stoves or conventional hobs. When preparing sugary dishes over high heat, kitchen safety is a major concern that is resolved through cool magnetic energy. These 12 qts. - 14 qts. stainless steel double boilers therefore offer contemporary kitchens the safest alternative while still providing the indirect diffusion needed to prepare delicate sweets, cheesecakes and sauces. Stainless steel generally carries NFS certification because it is extremely hygienic and does not allow metal to leach into ingredients. This facet keeps dishes free of metallic flavors. Aluminum is a light, conductive metal, but it reacts with milky and acidic foods. This negates its usefulness at the confectioner's station unless it is clad in stainless steel. This layered approach is frequently used to add thermal responsiveness to double boilers. High quality stainless steel is renowned for its durability and corrosion resistance. It forms a part of an easily maintained kitchen, since it does not need to be maintained through polishing or seasoning.
