FINE QUALITY STAINLESS STEEL FLATWARE is comprised of 18% chromium and 10% nickel but what if you have a nickel allergy? Chromium resists stains, rust, corrosion and is a strong solid metal in its own right. The nickel content adds to the strength of the product.
Chromium, or chrome, is a tough white metal, used in stainless steel and other alloys, because of how hard it is and its stain-resistant properties
Nickel is a corrosion-resistant silvery-white metal, often used for its shine to coat other metals
Easy to maintain
Zero nickel content
Prone to staining
Even though this is all fine and dandy. There are reviews that don’t reflect the Nickely Challenged excitement. I was so happy coming across this article and thought that there was hope of going out to eat without getting sick. Apparently there are 18/0 stainless steel cookware, I didn’t know if their review is this bad. In other words, this needs further investigation.
Rapid rusting is not limited just to Oneida’s 18/0 flatware sets — zero nickel content flatware from all brands is not only more prone to rust, but it is also of a far less quality than 18/8 and 18/10 flatware that contains nickel, and natural, rust-resistant material that also prolongs the “shine” factor of flatware.
Even though the reviews are sort of terrible. Stainless steel silverware is a win for me. I hope all of you will join me in the investigation of this product. I will buy mine next week and will review it in a month. Anyone is welcome to share their thoughts, concerns and opinion about this product.
Till next Wednesday,
Make new discoveries
