The stainless steel story

Stainless steel has been at home in American kitchens for decades. Made from a combination of steel alloys and chromium (chrome), stainless steel is popular with folks who think straight chrome and polished brass are too gaudy. Stainless steel shines like a new penny when new but (like most of us) can become dullish over time. Still, stainless resists rust and corrosion well and can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
