Is 304(18/8) stainless steel safe? 2020-08-20

You may see 304 (18/8) logo advertised in lots of stainless steel products. Many brands claim they only use 304 (18/8)stainless steel. So what's special about this kind of stainless steel? Does it really represent high quality or is it a small trick that brands use to boost sales?

In order to receive a particular grade, stainless steel needs to go through a variety of strict tests, measured by quality, durability and temperature resistance. 304 stainless steel contains a high amount of chromium and nickel. The high amount of these metals combined with the iron and carbon gives 304 stainless steel excellent corrosion resistance and rust resistance features. It must contain more than 18% chromium and more than 8% nickel, so the steel is also called as 18 / 8 stainless steel.

With good corrosion resistance, less thermal conductivity, and high durability, it is widely used in kitchenware, furniture decoration and medical industry. In addition, 304 stainless steel is super smooth making it easy to clean and  prevents the growth of germs and bacteria. Compared to other materials which are rougher it provides an ideal environment for bacteria to grow. Food-grade steel is safe for food and beverage storage.
