5 Reasons Why Wire Mesh Is Perfect For The Fast Food Industry
Wire mesh is a necessity in many industries ranging from construction and agriculture to even food processing. It is also a staple in the fast food industry, especially for fry cooking. Many restaurants use wire baskets for making a variety of dishes. Made from woven wire mesh, they have a multitude of advantages. 5 such major merits will be addressed below.
Benefits of wire mesh basket.
Made from stainless steel or galvanized steel, they can withstand extremely high temperatures. Since food is dipped in boiling oil at high temperatures, it requires a robust basket that can endure this level of heat. With woven wire mesh baskets, it’s an easy task.
Safe For Food Industry
In the food service industry, it is vital to have food-grade products, and wire meshes used in this field are manufactured to uphold this quality. Generally, Type 304 and 316L stainless steel wire mesh qualify for this task, as they are corrosion resistant and can withstand temperatures as high as 1600 F (871.1C).
Resistant To Acids And Food Chemicals
Plenty of food products are highly acidic, hence the wire mesh must be able to withstand their corrosive nature. Furthermore, there are several chemicals used in cleaning products too such as dish soaps, liquids, or sprays. Fortunately, wire meshes are highly resistant to such chemicals.
The fryers used in the food service industry may or may not be of standard specifications. Hence, wire meshes need to be highly customizable. For instance, if the openings in the basket are too narrow, it can lead to clogging. Conversely, if it is too wide, the food might fall into the fryer. Hence, wire meshes need to be customized, and it is quite easy to do so.
Compared to other pieces of fancy cookware, wire baskets are quite affordable. Hence, they can be ordered in bulk, as per the requirements and specifications of the customer. This saves valuable time and resources for a restaurant.
