Are you looking for a new cookware set or thinking about renovating your kitchen? As you look around and shop at your favorite stores, you may be surprised to learn how many products NSF certifies. NSF helps protect families in so many ways by certifying products like cookware, knives, cutting boards, and cooking thermometers, as well as plumbing fixtures and many household appliances.

In addition to kitchen appliances, there can be public health issues associated with many other products we use in our kitchens every day, including cookware, food storage containers, cutting boards, and even thermometers. No matter what type of product you are seeking for your kitchen, give yourself peace of mind and look to see that the equipment and materials you choose for your kitchen are NSF certified.
From laminate and solid surfaces to engineered stone, the choices are endless today. When selecting a countertop, you can help protect the health and safety of your family by asking the manufacturer if their product is certified to NSF/ANSI 51 or NSF P224. Certification to these standards helps confirm whether the material is truly suitable for use in a kitchen where there may be direct or indirect contact with food.
