AISI 430 BS430S17 X 6 Cr 17 EN 1.4016
Requires careful maintenance to keep rust proof, durable, very hygienic and non toxic. Excellent for hardening and thus ideal for cutlery, can openers, cutting tools etc.,suitable for people with nickel allergies, magnetic, heat resistance similar to 18/10 stainless steel but less resistant to chemicals
Requires dishwasher or manual cleaning with mild washing up liquid immediately after use, deposits, including lime scale/calcium and especially food must be removed after washing up, less robust than 18/8-18/10 stainless steel and therefore requires more care, never use steel wool or scourers
Special advise for cutlery.Food deposits which are not immediately removed will affect the surface of the cutlery
Dry all items thoroughly immediately after removing them from the dishwasher and store them away.
