Stainless Steel Cookware

IS Standard : IS 14756 : 2022

Cookware made of stainless steel is a common sight in kitchens all over the world, valued for its long-lasting beauty, adaptability, and durability. Stainless steel, an alloy renowned for its remarkable resistance to rusting, corrosion, and stains, is used to make this kind of cookware. Iron makes up the majority of stainless steel's composition, with chromium and other components added to form an oxide coating that protects the surface from food reactions and ensures long-term endurance. The capacity of stainless steel cookware to preserve the integrity of cooked food's tastes is one of its primary benefits. Additionally, the superior heat dispersion of stainless steel cookware ensures consistent cooking and reduces the possibility of hot spots.

Cookware made of stainless steel is guaranteed to be produced in accordance with IS 14756:2022 quality requirements. Respecting this guideline enables producers to provide cookware that is safe to use while preparing meals and cooking, shielding customers from any health risks. Failure to comply may result in entrance obstacles and restrict a producer's capacity to market their goods. Manufacturers who follow safety and quality requirements while producing stainless steel cookware are less liable for mishaps or injuries brought on by non-compliant goods.

This standard specifies the minimal requirements for the subsequent types of stainless steel cutlery:

  • Cooking utensils
  • Serving utensils
  • Table utensils
  • Storage utensils

Note: The necessary ISI Mark Certification must be obtained by manufacturers of cookware made of stainless steel.

A manufacturer's constant dedication to providing cookware that not only meets but surpasses strict quality and safety requirements is highlighted by ISI certification, giving consumers peace of mind that the kitchen utensils they use on a daily basis are of the highest caliber and follow strict safety regulations. By assuring consumers that the cookware they depend on is dependable, long-lasting, and safe for food preparation and cooking, this certification for stainless steel cookware also helps to build customer confidence.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
