The Best Steel For The Best Dish!

An interesting wok test compares the carbon steel wok again the stainless steel wok. There is a lot of debate over these two compositions of woks even if they look kite similar there are some important difference with their temperature reaction.

image

Most people prefer the carbon steel wok over the stainless steel wok because it has the most regular heat dispersion. This is not the case with stainless steel overheated and these hot spots can totally ruin a cooking and reduces long-term quality cooking. On the other hand, the carbon steel has good resistance to high temperatures and retains heat much longer than stainless steel woks for future use.

image

The only downside is that carbon steel requires slightly more maintenance to eliminate the appearance of rusting. We just needs to dry well and rub with 2 or 3 drops of oil to prevent any risk of rust.

image

To have a good wok stainless steel we have to choose the best quality of stainless steel and the final price may be higher than the carbon steel wok.  Overall, the carbon steel wok is a better choice for short and long term use.

Shanghai Metal Corporation offers a large selection of carbon steel with the highest quality standard and an affordable pricing. To find out more, please visit our Website or send your inquiry here.

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

What do a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant and a local eater have in common?

Answer-they both use stainless steel in their kitchen, in one shape or another. The world of professional cooking is a vigorous and every so changing and demanding world. From preparing the perfect cocktail, to pleasing the customer with small works of art, and of course to serving them a most memorable dessert. All and many more of these examples would not be possible and hygienic without the participation of Stainless steel.

image

Let’s view this idea as if you just had a long day at work, and just want to sit down and enjoy a great diner with no worries. You begin with a cocktail, a cold vodka martini which was possible by the stainless steel ice box, and the stainless steel shakers which chilled your cocktail at a rapid speed without diluting it. Before, this same cocktail would have been stirred, diluted, and not reach the ice cold feeling you are enjoying today.

image

Dinner has arrived! It is a perfectly poached Salmon with seared tomatoes and reduced vinegar glaze on top. A small work of art, and yet again this perfectly balanced dish would not have been possible without the assistance of stainless steel appliances. Since stainless steel holds on to temperature very well, and it is not affected by acids such as tomatoes, or vinegar; this dish you are taking pictures of and twitting about, could not have been possible without the help of stainless steel pots and pans.

image

Finally dessert; a curious pairing of frozen ice creams sitting on top of a variety of fried fruit, both curious and intricate. Again, difficult without the help of stainless steel appliances such as: the deep fryer and ice cream maker. Your experience has come to an end, and you leave with a smile on your face. You leave thanking everyone, except one silent participant, but it is ok, those pots and pans will be waiting for you for many years come.

image

The participation of Stainless steel is one who has helped raise the level of artistry in the world of professional kitchens, as well as in your kitchen at home. As Stainless Steel Industry Professional, Shanghai Metal Corporation takes pride in the manufacturing of those products which are used in our customer’s daily life such as stainless steel cutlery, kitchen sinks and a countless variety of stainless steel products, which our company manufactures and supplies at the highest quality and most affordable price. So you never know-you might have to also thank us next time you go out to eat.

The Lux Device That Froths Your Beer To Perfection

To beer enthusiasts a head of foam is not only an aesthetic element. The foam carries a ‘trigeminal’ sensation, which gives a completely different mouth feel and body to the beer. Like capsaicin, the compound responsible for chillies’ spiciness or menthol for its cooling sensation and the fizzy feeling of carbonated beverages. Beer foam is carbonation in other words, hence a trigeminal sensation –  so it’s a tactile like you feel.

Tricks to give the perfect foam to your beer involve creating bubbles by briskly pouring the drink into the glass with a bit of splash. Although this process will give you foam, it will be destroyed by big bubbles and low density. Another trick is to add CO2 in the beer or, for a more creamy foam, nitrogen gas and nitrogen will also work wonders by “softening” the overall palate.

Rather complicated to DIY at home, Danish design studio Norm Architects (for the design brand Menu) just made your life even better. They created the Beer Foamer that separates the foam-making process from the pouring process, in order to give you that creamy, fluffy, crisp and dense feel of foam.

1-beer-foamer-by-norm-architects-for-menu

The device is copper-plated and takes inspiration from the large boilers used in old beer breweries, while the bottom container is made of shatterproof glass. How it works? You pour approximately one centimeter of beer into the bottom of the transparent glass container, press the button and wait 20 seconds while a battery-powered whisk froths up the liquid. Then you pour the freshly frothed foam onto your beer.

The Beer Foamer promises you to the precious bubbles that release the different aromas which beer makers put so much effort on as they can alter the perception of any given beer.  Well, it’s Friday today anyways so why not try it out?

Innovative Uses of Soap

In Fight Club, soap was seen as symbol of purification and cleanliness, of a culture lacking the hypocrisy and fraudulence of contemporary culture. It was then sold for $20, representing a too highly refined culture – a culture where all traces of natural humanity are suppressed, effaced, washed off.fightclub

Ironically, this soap is now sold commercially. Inspired by Chuck Palahniuk’s novel and sporting the logo of the film adaptation, this caffeinated, color-matched pink soap is completely usable, which slightly defeats the point.

Friends also gave a shout out to soap, and inspired a new soap product:

JOEY: Hey, why can’t we use the same toothbrush, but we can use the same soap?

CHANDLER: Because soap is soap. It’s self-cleaning.

JOEY: Alright, well next time you take a shower, think about the last thing I wash and the first thing you wash.

Soap innovators have finally found a way to avoid such follies as you can see here. Except according to studies, your face actually has more germs on it than your butt.

ButtFace-Soap

Other soap innovations seek to cure the cooking smells sticking to your hands. One good way to remove the unpleasant odors left by certain food such as onions, garlic and raw fish is to use the stainless steel soap. Stainless steel soap is a bar of ordinary steel formed into the shape of a standard soap bar, clad in a thin layer of chrome. The sulfur left on the cook’s hands after handling onions or garlic could form a chemical bond with the chromium oxide on the stainless steel soap bar and cling to the bar’s surface, not the cook’s skin.

How Do Telephones Actually Work?

It’s one of those facts you think you know from school but simply won’t come to you when you need it most.  Just next to you some work friends talk intelligently about a recent news story. They turn to you for your opinion, but of course you spent your morning running late and wasting time in the coffee line. So you fall onto your backup – smile and laugh. In a Bridget Jones fashion, you vow to memorise some clever facts for next time. Chechnya anyone?

And just like that F.R.I.E.N.D’s episode, where Joey feels left behind when everyone talks about current events despite his V encyclopedia investment, we at SMC are here to help avoid such social mishaps.

How The Telephone Works:

  1. The sound energy in your voice makes the air vibrate. Vibrating air carries the sound energy into the phone.
  2. The diaphragm in the mouthpiece microphone converts sound energy into electrical energy.
  3. The electrical energy travels from the phone, via exchanges and carbon audio transformers, to your friend’s phone. Carbon is special because it changes its electrical conductivity with minimal amounts of pressure—pressure such as that created by pressing a membrane against it, a membrane that is vibrating due to, oh, say, the sound waves created by a human voice.
  4. A diaphragm in the earpiece loudspeaker of your friend’s phone converts the incoming electrical energy back to sound energy.
  5. The sound energy travels out from the earpiece into your friend’s ear.

So, next time there is a lull in the conversation, we at SMC have you covered – how to segue into telephones…that’s your business.
