Our portfolio includes stainless steel cookware, kitchen tools/accessories and zinc alloy, aluminum table-top products. Each item is then individually inspected to make sure it matches our high standard of quality. We’re also keenly proud that we owned business emphasizes the personal and human touch that established our sterling reputation through the years. We still inspect each piece by hand today, just as we did in decades past.
Stainless steel is durable and long–lasting. The majority of the benefits of stainless steel cookware, including corrosion resistance and durability, ultimately contribute to the material’s important role in sustainable design and alternative energy evolution. On average, the recycled content of stainless steel is 60%.
18/8 stainless steel contains a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel which gives its alternate name 304 stainless steel. 304 stainless steel contains chromium-nickel content and low carbon. This stainless steel type is oxidation and corrosion resistant. This durability provides ease for fabrication and prevention of product contamination. 304 stainless steel is considered the most versatile and common austenitic stainless steel. 304 stainless steel is more cost effective compared to 316 stainless steel.
18/10 stainless steel, as well as 18/8 and 18/0, are fractions explaining the percentages of chromium and nickel alloys, respectively, added to stainless steel to reduce rust and enhance shine and durability. 18/0 contains limited nickel and is therefore, slightly less resistant to oxidation, while 18/10 provides the highest amount of nickel producing the greatest resistance to rust, and longest held polish. This designation is claimed to indicate a better quality steel than '18/8', and is essentially the same as the 304 grade.
18/0 is a 'ferritic' stainless steel type, which is attracted by a magnet (like pure iron). This steel is known as 430 stainless steel is used where corrosion resistance is not too demanding as an alternative to the '18/8' 304 type. The chromium content is optimistically said to be 18% but is nearer 17%.
