WHAT IS SO UNSANITARY ABOUT OTHER ABOVE COUNTER STORAGE SYSTEMS?

WHAT IS SO UNSANITARY ABOUT OTHER ABOVE COUNTER STORAGE SYSTEMS?

Airborne cooking particles settle on counter-tops, stove-tops, appliances… on and in everything, including cutlery storage systems.  Anything not wiped clean will be left with a sticky film of that airborne food residue.  Traditional wood cutlery blocks and ‘slot-less’ cutlery storage systems require special cleaning and as a consequence of their not receiving it, they become a repository for these kitchen pollutants.

Germs in the kitchenThat sticky film then receives a layer of household air pollutants… those tiny particles you see floating in air when a concentrated beam of sunlight illuminates the air pollutants in your home.  They land-on and stick-to that layer of film that hasn’t been removed.

When there’s even the tiniest of any remaining food particles left on a knives blade, they get scraped-off the blades edge (MORE) as it slips ‘in and out’ of the grooves created by the concentration of the knives repeated ‘in-and-out’ action in the knife slots lower wall.

Those ‘in-and-out’ crevices also become the receptacle for any moister remaining on the knives blade as it slips in to its resting place.

Now you have the knife being stored in this dark, poorly vented and scared knife slots that contain the old airborne kitchen pollutants mixed with common household pollutants and microscopic residual food particles and any moister from a humid kitchen environment or left on the knifes blade.

Understand that this Petri Dish environment is where you store your knives before retrieving them to prepare the next meal.

That’s why above-counter cutlery storage systems have been found to be among the top 10 filthiest kitchen utensil (LINK T10FKU) and to have 8 times the concentration of bacterial colonization as the floor in front of the family throne.  (LINK to ‘The Doctors’)

It’s also why the Center for Disease Control states there are 48 million food related illnesses causing 128,000 hospitalization and 3,000 deaths annually in America alone that are avoidable.
