Gift Thoughtfully! Give Steel!

As you’re combing the internet and stores for a new gift idea for that special someone, you may want to think about giving a gift made of steel. When you give steel, you can tell all of your special people that their present is helping to improve our society. Steel is safe, strong, germ-resistant, recyclable, and sustainable. It is often the “go to” material for building safer cars, bacteria eliminating appliances and rust-free eating and cooking utensils.

To help you make good and quick decisions on what to get who this year, Profess-ORE Otto at WorldAutoSteel has compiled the “12 Gifts of Steel.” We hope that this list gives you a spoonful of knowledge to purchase the right gifts for all the people in your life. Enjoy!

2Stainless Steel Dishwasher

Ideal for the germophobe you know and love. A dishwasher that has the insides built from stainless steel puts out cleaner dishes than a plastic one. Stainless steel can handle higher water temperatures and will sanitize dishes more effectively.

3A Set of Stainless Steel Teaspoons

The best gift for the person in your life who loves to throw parties! Often times we need extra spoons for coffee and dessert after dinner but already depleted our supply. That’s when we resort to using plastic , which unfortunately, increases the amount of trash we produce. With extra stainless steel teaspoons, they can be safely washed and will last a lifetime if cared for properly.

4Stainless Steel Stove

The best gift around for the special person who loves to cook. The surface of a stainless steel stove resist stains and rust despite constant, messy use. Stainless steel is a highly durable material on your cooktop and will keep your stove looking like new for years to come.

5Stainless Steel Cookware

The highly coveted gift for the person who’s never had his/her own matching set. Stainless steel cookware can cook meat at high temperatures at first for browning, and then later at lower temperatures for safe doneness. The benefit of stainless steel is that it is non-reactive; that is, it will not break down over time and it won’t affect food flavors as with some other materials.

6Steel Lawn Mower

Ideal for the lawn fanatic in your life. Most designers of today’s quality lawn mowers specify a high-carbon, nickel alloy steel for the blades. This steel (commonly used for automotive leaf springs) has the hardness to be extremely resistant to wear and breakage and will result in a better cutting job and longer life.

 8Steel Snow Blower

For the weary snow shoveler who needs to upgrade to a snow blower. A plastic chute could shatter, but if properly maintained, a snow blower chute made of steel can take the punishing sub-zero impacts of snow, ice and ingested debris that non-steel chutes cannot.

12nSteel Bicycle

Whether cruising the countryside, racing or commuting to the grocery store, you want a ride that is durable and will last, and is affordable. Your family cyclist will be delighted when you give him or her a bicycle with a frame made of chromoly steel, a very strong and light alloy. This type of steel is weldable and less prone to snapping or bending.
