Trend Toward Higher Safety and Sanitation in the Kitchen 

People have resumed the habit of cooking at home for their families since the pandemic started. They have been living in an atmosphere of fear, combined with increased attention to preserving their health. This combination has increased the awareness of the importance of maintaining a sanitized environment especially in the kitchen, a place where bacteria and contaminated products from outside often settle, especially after grocery. This has led to a growing need for antibacterial products even in the kitchen environment.

This is an environment frequently exposed to humid conditions, typically formed during cooking, where simple carelessness in cleaning the kitchen environment or food preparation can cause cross-contamination and the spread of bacteria, resulting in the risk of diseases.

Therefore, hygiene has become the main ingredient in every kitchen's food safety recipe.

The cookware handle is the only part of the pot or pan we touch while cooking. For this reason, it is important to keep it clean and sanitary.

What if We Could Choose Antibacterial Cookware? 

The importance of managing and passing items in a way that reduces bacterial contamination between multiple surfaces is even greater if we think of the retail store where a product is handled and passed on by many people during transport and storage and finally in store by potential buyers. Having a product with antibacterial properties allows you to select an item with more security and peace of mind, both for the supply chain and for the buyer and end user. Think about it: a disinfectant will kill bacteria for a given timeframe. If you do not continue to clean the item, the bacteria will return.

Within this context, F.B.M. has launched a new product line with antimicrobial properties to offer you antibacterial effectiveness. The new line is named F.B.M. Active Shield to reflect its special protective effect and it is the first line of cookware accessories that has an internal agent that inhibits bacterial growth. Having a product with antibacterial properties inside the material it is made of, it does not allow bacteria to grow on it anymore. Therefore, combining this product with regular cleaning will ensure maximum antibacterial effectiveness.Active Shiled DEFINITIVO Orizzontale
