A 3.5-inch thick steel plate is the standard in kitchen kitchens, but a plate made from 3-inches of steel plate can be an effective tool for preventing damage to your kitchen utensils and appliances.
The article below discusses the use of this plate, which can protect your kitchen and countertop from steel rod.1.
Choose a Plate You’ll need:A 3- or 4-inch long steel rod or other sturdy steel bar3-inch wide stainless steel plate3- and 4-inches thick steel platesA sturdy kitchen cabinetA 1-inch deep hole or small opening in the plateA 3 inch wide stainless or hard-coated steel wire for securing the plate to the cabinet or countertop2.
Cut the Rod The first step in using the steel plate to protect your countertop is to cut the rod to fit the plate.
Make sure to cut it at a straight angle, and not so that it extends past the back of the plate or into the kitchen cabinet.
The wire should be at least 3 inches wide.
You can also use a utility knife to trim the ends of the rod.3.
Install the Plate On the plate, secure it to the countertop with wire and make sure to screw the plate into the cabinet and into the wall.
Make certain to drill a hole in the back plate, and drill a 1- or 2-inch hole in each side of the cabinet, or place a 2- or 3-in-1-inch-thick wire (or other secure material) in the cabinet to secure the rod securely.4.
Care for the Plate and CountertopAfter you’ve installed the plate on the counter, make sure it’s clean and dry, as it may not stay in place for long.
It’s important to rinse the plate well after each use, to prevent rusting.
To clean the plate before use, rinse it thoroughly with water.
You’ll also need to wash the counter top and cabinet, but not before using the plate for its intended purpose.
The plate should not be cleaned before using.
The next step is to carefully inspect the inside of the counter and kitchen cabinets to make sure there’s not rust on the wire or metal.
