Stainless steel 304 is the most widely used chromium-nickel stainless steel, with good corrosion resistance, heat resistance, low temperature strength and mechanical characteristics; stamping, bending and other heat workability, no heat treatment hardening phenomenon (use temperature-196℃~800℃). Stainless steel 304 is nationally approved food grade stainless steel.
How do we recognize the good quality stainless steel material?
There is a good method that you can use a magnet to recognize. The tableware that can be attracted by magnets is stainless iron products containing chromium and no nickel, which has poor corrosion resistance and is usually stainless steel 430. Tableware that can not be attracted by magnets is stainless steel products containing both chromium and nickel, which has high corrosion resistance. Therefore, when purchasing stainless steel products you can carry with a magnet.
