How is polypropylene kitchenware made?
Polypropylene kitchenware is made from a thermoplastic polymer. This polymer is derived from propylene gas and is used to make various products, including food containers, packaging materials, and textiles.
Polypropylene is a tough, lightweight material resistant to moisture and chemicals. It can be moulded into many different shapes and is commonly used in injection moulding processes. For example, polypropylene cutlery holders for restaurants are generally made by melting the polypropylene and forming it into the desired shape. This process uses various methods, such as injection moulding, extrusion, or thermoforming.

What are the benefits of using polypropylene kitchenware?
Polypropylene kitchenware is durable, dishwasher safe, and has a high heat tolerance, perfect for everyday use in busy commercial settings. Our cutlery holders are durably made and can withstand repeated washings in the dishwasher. Polypropylene also features a high melting point and is resistant to staining and scratching, making it an ideal choice for cutlery holders and other restaurant supplies.
We recommend polypropylene kitchenware for restaurants, cafes, buffets and other venues looking for reliable products that can provide exceptional long-term use.
Why should I use stainless steel kitchenware?
Stainless steel is a hallmark of kitchens worldwide thanks to its durable construction, sleek design and stylish finish that suits a range of restaurant decors. Stainless steel products are dishwasher safe and easy to clean — plus, stainless steel can handle higher temperatures than most other materials.
How do I clean a restaurant dishwasher rack?
Many chefs and kitchen hands assume that dishwasher racks are completely clean after being used in a commercial dishwasher. However, dishwasher racks hold an assortment of plates, bowls, utensils and cutlery covered in oils, liquids and other food waste that can go unnoticed on your racks. If your restaurant dishwasher rack is starting to look dirty, there are a few things you can do to clean it.
