The term ‘stainless’ indicates that a steel alloy of chromium and nickel is used for the production of the items.
- Chromium ensures that the cutlery is durable and remains rust-free.
- Nickel provides brightness and makes the cutlery more resistant to food acids. This composition gives the cutlery a long-lasting shine, as well as making it rustproof and suitable for the dishwasher.
If stainless steel items are not cleaned for a long time, aggressive substances such as acids from fruit and vegetables, salt water and other similar corrosive substances can still affect the material.
