STAINLESS STEEL = NO RUST< ?? Why do we get spots on the stainless steel, easy answer is this is STEEL, and Stainless Steel is easy care if you understand the product and care it will last for years with no RUST SPOTS.
Our BBQ Tools are made in China, YES, so are all the other brands, everyone goes to the same manufactures for BBQ Tools in China, many are located in the same providence.
Our Backyard Dudes ® and BBQ Dudes ® tools are made to a higher standard, we use a better quality of Stainless Steel for our products. A European Class of 430 grade Stainless, cost more of course. We want your BBQ Tool set to last for years, without problems. Others package in a fancy box, gift wrap, like for retail sale. This is a E-Commerce product, who cares about the fancy color printed box, you open and toss anyway right? We spent this money for fancy package on the QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT.
I am sure you will find similar tool sets, selling for less, but "really" you get what you pay for, a fact of life in our times. Better quality cost a bit more, we think this fact will overcome the box your not paying for.
CLEANING STAINLESS STEEL BBQ TOOL SET
Dishwasher safe?? NOT REALLY, as the strong detergents will remove the protective natural top layer on the stainless, this is the cause of the spots. Hand wash in the sink is way better than strong dishwasher soap.
Dry them off after use
Rub a lemon or lime on the surface to protect the stainless for oxidation which creates the rust spots.
Spots may appear on ANY BRAND, not only ours, we have taken care to make better quality but you still need to clean & take care of any outdoor item, they need love too.
Scouring pad will remove the spots, easy,, then rub a bit of cut lemon or lime juice on them to protect.
HERE IS THE CHEMICAL STORY FOR ALL THE GEEKS OUT THERE
strong bleaching agents from dishwasher detergent have stripped some of the chrome from your stainless steel top layer, Exposed the steel, will rust.
Lemon or Lime will help remove the rust spot and prevent from spreading, making them bright and like new again.
