Cooking aprons: the effective protection against contamination and injuries
Cooking, barbecuing and baking are lived passions and naturally associated with various food splashes. Aprons have always protected clothing from being soiled and are therefore an integral part of the workwear of chefs. At the same time, they minimize the general risk of injury because hot sauces and splashes of fat are effectively kept away and cannot penetrate to the wearer. But which material should be chosen when buying an apron? What should you watch out for when cleaning? In this blog post we consider the most important aspects and show the special advantages of ROHLEDER aprons.
The advantages of a leather apron as a cooking apron
In addition to fabric aprons, leather aprons are very popular and ultimately emerge as the clear winner when the material properties are compared. Especially when barbecuing, sparks can fly, which can lead to a dangerous situation with a fabric apron and, in the worst case, burns. In addition, hot splashes of fat on a permeable fabric can not only contaminate clothing, but also cause an extremely unpleasant sensation of heat. In contrast, leather aprons are heat-resistant, water-repellent and extremely hard-wearing. Fat and oil are also absorbed into the leather without leaving unwanted stains. Among other things, these impressive material properties are partly responsible for the firm conviction of ROHLEDER that leather is the ideal material for cooking aprons and, with its longevity, is a guarantee for countless hours of cooking. For example, if you buy our leather apron in a natural brown color, you are purchasing a high-quality leather product that has all the advantages of the material used and also represents a result of our passion.
The uncomplicated cleaning of leather aprons
The leather apron as a cooking apron is extremely easy to care for and does not require time-consuming washing machine cycles. The various stains that usually occur during cooking can simply be wiped off with a damp cloth. In view of the good cleaning properties, hands can be wiped on the apron without hesitation. For the intensity of the advantages of a leather apron, the quality is primarily decisive. While most manufacturers offer aprons made of synthetic leather or Chinese split leather, our leather is made from exquisite grain leather from cattle in Italy. The handmade and natural aprons from ROHLEDER have particularly positive cleaning properties due to the high processing quality. The surface is only waxed and without a plastic coating, so that the folds of the cowhide, individual scars and insect bites are recognizable and give the leather apron a unique character.
The special wearing comfort with leather aprons
In addition to excellent material properties and uncomplicated cleaning, the ROHLEDER aprons are particularly comfortable to wear. In particular, the low weight of 700g (1.5lb) stands out and allows it to be worn for hours without any negative side effects. The ultimate freedom of movement is a significant advantage, especially in the kitchen, and allows dishes to be prepared with particular ease. Our leather is velvety soft, extremely pleasant to the touch and naturally hugs the shape of the body. It is also extremely breathable, comparable to a leather shoe, which significantly reduces the risk of sweating. Our leather aprons with their pockets offer sufficient storage space for cooking utensils and thus a further plus in comfort. At ROHLEDER you can personalize your leather product and thus give it an individual touch. We not only offer you the embossing of a text or logo, but also embroidery with a colored logo.
