304 stainless steel is often used as a kind of nickel-nickel stainless steel. We often see that some tableware is made of 304 stainless steel because this stainless steel has alkali resistance, acid resistance and relatively good corrosion resistance.

The price of 316 stainless steel will be more expensive. Compared with 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel, the most essential difference is the addition of a molybdenum element, which can greatly improve the corrosion resistance and acid resistance of appliances made of 616 materials. In this regard, 316 stainless steel is really good.

Since utensils made of 316 stainless steel are really good, this material is generally used in more formal fields such as the food industry, watch industry, and medical equipment.
