Stainless steel flatware and culery is available in a variety of
grades. Use of stainless steels and super stainless steels is
expanding in a variety of markets. Stainless steels have higher
resistance to oxidation ( rust) and corrosion in many natural and
man made environments; however, it is important to select the
correct type and grade of stainless steel.
Stainless steel is finished by different degrees of polishing:
high polish finish, dull polish finish and a light grey matt, non
reflective finish, etc.
Stainless steel's resistance to corrosion and staining, low
maintenance, relative inexpense and familiar luster make it an ideal
base material for tableware. Stainless steel neither tarnishes nor
stains. It resists scratching far more than other metals and may,
therefore, be said to be more hygienic.
