Wood & Wood Composite Kitchens vs Stainless Steel Modular Kitchens
focus for Indian households,
The best modular kitchens would be the ones that are well thought out for the need of the Household and the person cooking in particular.
Factors that determine in the long run apart from the aesthetic looks would be the convenience of Preparation of Ingredients, cooking, cleaning & Storage, and in the long run that is Hygienic and safe.
A peek into the factors of the raw materials is as follows which are basically wood and wood Composites and the use of Metal.
Particle Board, Medium Density fiberboard, and of late Plywood with decorative laminates are the maximum used as the availability with the advertisements tempts the usage, moreover, an average Carpenter completes the task of buying all the raw materials and processes the modular kitchen installation.
The point to ponder is how the raw materials used which are basically wood which is safe, however, the resins that are used to manufacture these wood composites are highly toxic in the long run to any living being.
For instance, apart from the wood the resins, solvents, and adhesives used are all Inorganic chemicals for binding such as Phenol Formal Dehyde, and Ammonia based Adhesives that emit gases that deposit either on the utensils or the food that is stored, Laminates especially are the decorative sheet that is pasted on plywood with Ammonia based adhesive which one can smell for a long time after the installation, the laminate is basically Ethyl cellulose paper which is printed on Gravure machines with water-based Inks for the design or Colour and later on is dipped in Urea Formal Dehyde for either the gloss finish or the matt, one could browse the WEB to check these factors for reality checks which frighteningly reveals the toxicity of these modern-day advertised materials are made of and not even a warning symbol is displayed. The use of Biodegradable wood containing cellulose attracts domestic pests, Termites & Borer that cause irreparable damage and result in total ruin over a period of time.
The use of inert metal which does not degrade with the weather or certainly does not emit fumes is preferable to these wood composites least to say.
Stainless steel which is used in Food processing units, Confectionaries, Dairies, Hotels, and related industries use only stainless steel as it lasts long, is hygienic, and is easy to clean and disinfect Plain soap and warm water could be used after use.
