Zinc Countertop Reactions with Food

Posted on 20 August 2015 by cradmin

Metal countertops have come on the scene, and they have moved well beyond the stainless steel you may think of in a commercial kitchen, such as a restaurant. Nowadays both copper and zinc have made their way into the mix. This video, produced by Mio Metals, takes a look at what happens to zinc countertops when various food items are exposed to them. As is also the case with copper countertops, zinc countertops are known to take on a “patina” of stains, etching, dents, etc. over time that lovers of the product (and fabricators of it) like to think of as┬ácharacter. Certainly no two countertops made of this material are alike and in most cases, the countertops can be restored somewhat to their original look by a sound polishing. However, it seems few owners mind the ever-changing look and go through the work of heavy polishing. In this video, wine, lemon juice and other various foods are placed on a zinc test kitchen countertop just to see their effect.
