Household and Kitchen Utensils
Safety and performance tests for cookware ensure your organization's compliance with national standards, such as ASTM, FDA, and BS.
We depend on safe tools in the kitchen for enjoyable meal preparation day after day. From ceramic and enamel cookware to kettles, coffee makers, table cutlery, insulated food containers, thermal packs, hot water bottles, drink coolers, and other products, Intertek tests, inspects, and certifies household utensils to ensure they are safe for use around our homes.
We check on quality and safety characteristics, such as handle strength, coating thickness, adhesion, abrasion, scratch resistance, corrosion, and other potential defects to prevent mishaps in home use. By testing product quality and performance before utensils meet store shelves, Intertek provides comfort and trust in your household brand.

- FDA Food Contact Substances (FCS)
- Dishwasher Safe
- Microwave Safe
- Thermal Shock
- Metal Release
