Probably the best Scandinavian watch

I wanted a special memento of my favourite city, Copenhagen. This beautiful watch is exactly what Danish design is all about; beautiful, simplistic and modern. I look forward to many hyggelig moments with it.

Can definitely recommend buying from Nordgreen

Very pleased with my purchase - exactly what I was hoping it would be. Very quick delivery , well packaged. Would definitely recommend. Particularly like the scheme where part of the purchase price goes to an eco scheme.

Mohamed El Kerdany

The ordering and processing of my order was very smooth and my order arrived in 3 days! I had made an error on entering the address and had contacted Nordgreen right away. They were able to change the address at the warehouse and sent me a confirmation which took away the anxiety.

After seeing my not so positive online review about their lack of response to my issues with my previous watch the Nordgreen team were quick to suggest a replacement and organise delivery

Beautiful Timepiece

I like the watch on my shirt. It is a nice watch to wear. Simplistic and beautiful at the same time. I value this purchase. Thank you.

Professional and amateur chefs will agree that a watch is one of the essential items in any kitchen.

Although most people rely on smartphones to tell time, with hands occupied in meal preparation, a glance at a wristwatch is a far simpler alternative.

Someone who isn’t a professional chef, but spends a lot of time in the kitchen, will also find watches essential in terms of cooking times.

So, how do you find the best kitchen watch that will look good on you and be able to resist the heat in the kitchen?

The Common Watch Materials: Which One is Best to Use In the Kitchen

Don’t let a sharp object or too much water get the best of your new watch.

If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you need a high-quality, sturdy, and scratch-resistant watch that will transition easily from work to play and help you prepare your favorite meal on time.

There are plenty of excellent watches for the kitchen that are more than ready to withstand your next cooking adventure. Before you choose your ideal timepiece, you need to know what material is best for resisting the heat.

A variety of materials is used in the manufacture of watches, but only certain substances are suitable for everyday use in tough environments, like the kitchen. Stainless-steel and titanium are the best choices.

Stainless steel watches are some of the most heat-resistant watches and perfect for your kitchen adventures. In general, stainless steel is almost impossible to scratch. It is also lightweight, durable, and sturdy.

Stainless steel is one of the most popular materials for watches, thanks to its resistance to rust, the steel’s strength, and the maintenance of a glossy shine. The biggest disadvantage of these watches is the tendency to fingerprints and dents, so you have to be more careful when wearing it in a kitchen environment.

Titanium watches are another option for kitchen use. Titanium is a durable and lightweight material and produces watches that are twice as strong as steel. One advantage of titanium watches is that it is also hypoallergenic and resistant to corrosion. It is perfect for everyday use and can withstand the kitchen heat.

Gold is a precious metal and typically combined with palladium and silver. It is a popular choice among women and men because it looks sturdy and luxurious. Rose gold watches are more discreet because of the distinctive coloring, but the material is durable and corrosion-free. It is also soft and prone to scratches.

Gold is NOT suitable for everyday use, though, especially in the kitchen.

Silicone rubber watches are comfortable to wear, soft, lightweight, and waterproof. They are best for people who prefer comfort wear. It is also ideal for sports activities, but less advisable for kitchen adventures.

The rubber isn’t able to resist high temperatures and may easily be damaged from sharp kitchen objects.

Plastic is the final material to consider, and one of the cheapest options for watches. In terms of durability, it is a suitable choice, but it can easily be scratched. You won’t get the most glamorous watch appearance-wise, but you will find a wide choice for something unique and colorful.

It is NOT suitable for kitchen use, though. Plastic can’t resist high temperatures.

Good Quality Kitchen Watches You Don’t Have to Take Off When Cooking

Whether you have an apron tied on tightly or an old t-shirt, it is challenging to prepare for the mishaps and damages that frequently happen in the kitchen.

Watches as accessories are prone to scratches and damages. If you don’t have a good quality watch, you can’t expect it to wear for years.

Rather than risking damage to your new accessory, equip yourself with a high-quality watch that can withstand the heat and other hazards in the kitchen environment.

Find the best kitchen watch, strap it on, and get down to your favorite recipes. There is no need to sacrifice aesthetics and style when you have an excellent kitchen watch at your disposal.
