Knives should be an essential part of your kitchen tools, whether you are a beginner or a professional chef because they make a lot easier the job of cooking and eating. Knowing this, if you do not have a proper set yet, and want to purchase a new want, there is something important you need to know first.
Stainless steel is the best material for flatware and cookware in general, and later we will detail the reasons for this. We will also detail all the stainless steel knife sets that we offer here on Artydome, in case that you want to take a look and get your new set now.
So, let’s read on and learn much more about this material and why it is the best for our utensils:
The Best Material For Flatware & Cookware
This alloy of iron, chromium and other metals has been one of the most important inventions for several industries. It has medical uses (surgical tools and medical equipment is now made of this material).
It is commonly used in the construction of bridges and airport roofs. It also has automotive and aerospace applications. However, the use that we are going to focus on is in kitchen tools.
When we talk about flatware, and specifically about knives, we can find different types of stainless steel qualities. Depending on the content of chromium and nickel, the designations are as follow:
- 18/10 Stainless steel (304 stainless steel)
- contains 18% chromium and 10% nickel
- 18/8 Stainless steel (304 stainless steel)
- contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel
- 18/0 Stainless steel (420 stainless steel)
- contains 18% chromium and 0% nickel
- 13/0 Stainless steel (410 stainless steel)
- contains 13% chromium and 0% nickel
To give you an idea about the meaning of these numbers, chromium is a metal that provides durability and makes the utensil rust-resistant. On the other hand, nickel is a silvery-white metal, so it provides luster. However, some people are allergic to nickel, that is why you can find flatware and utensils with 0% of this element.
Besides the advantages that we mentioned before, stainless steel has other useful properties. It is temperature resistant and is easy to maintain because you can wash it in the dishwasher.
Having explained all the qualities and advantages of this material, we are going to break down the best stainless steel knife sets that we offer in Artydome.
