How can you prevent your stainless steel cutlery from getting blue and yellow streaks in the dishwasher?
I live in an area where there are a lot of salts in the water. Perhaps that is one of the causes; I don't have the scientific knowledge to confirm that. My problem seemed worse if I used the Sani-Rinse or the Steam options so, obviously, the combo (salts, detergent, & extreme heat) had an adverse effect. I also sometimes wonder if there is enough water circulating to do a good job. What I do know is that when I switched from the powder detergent (Cascade) to the gel (Electrosol) & stuck with Hi-Temp Scrub, I got an all-around cleaner load, not just the cutlery. Perhaps different detergents contain different elements which react with the local water salts & really mess with our dishwashers. If that the case, I guess one has to experiment with various brands. Or possibly, the gel causes more turbidity & fools the sensor into thinking that the load is dirtier so it takes in more water; I don't know. All I know is that I saw quite an improvement when I switched. It's not perfect but much improved. A note of caution: My sister who lives 600 miles away, in the country & had no water softener was using a gel & gummed up her dishwasher to the point where it wouldn't run. She has since gotten a water softener, cleaned up the dishwasher (had to take the thing apart, soak & scrub...took days) & all is well now. She has a 22 yr old Maytag & I envy the sparkle of her glasses & flatware. Being the pessimist that I am, I do one load with the gel & one or two with the powder to make sure I don't gum things up. I found that wiping with lemon juice (or any form of citric acid) on a cloth gets rid of that bluish colour on the flatware & the tub (stainless steel) without any scrubbing. I haven't tried just throwing some in the dishwasher or sink & soaking; that might work too.

A lttle vinegar and water, dampen your cloth with the solution andwipe each piece. trust me.
The value may vary from knife to knife. Normally, Frost kitchen cutlery is purchased in sets at about $60 dollars. Follow this line. Go to frostcutlery.com>Kitchen cutlery>Block sets>picture of knives. When sold individually; a chef knife is sold for $30-35,carving $20-25, bread $12-15,utility $10-…14, paring $8-12. The reason for this pricing is these knives are forged instead of stamped (flat-styled knife). A stamped knife has a lower price, therefore, a lower value. Generally speaking...and that means 99% of the time...Frost knives, which are of course ALL manufactured in China, Pakistan, or India...are constructed of the least expensive stainless steel that can be shaped into anything resembling a knife. 440A, 420, 14000 Series from Germany, etc, all steels suitable for butterknives and cheap K-Mart screws and/or hinges. Not that any of the above steels are in and of themselves bottom of the barrel...low quality but not the worst...but with horrible heat treatments such as is done by Frost's Chinese business partners, they should not be considered suitable blade materials. The average 5" fixed blade from China, purchased in lots of at least 200-250, go for approximately $2.00, shipping included, to the Frost warehouse in Tennessee. In the quantity Frost purchases, that cost goes down considerably. (MORE)
In technical terms, it is also known by the name of inox or inoxsteel. It is an alloy of steel, with a minimum of 10.7% of chromiumcontent . It does not quickly disintegrate, corrode or tintwhen it comes in contact with water, which is the case withordinary steel. Though it is called "Stainless", h…owever, it is not100% stain proof.

Any of various alloys of iron that contain chromium, nickel, and small amounts of carbon. They may also contain minor amounts of other elements, such as molybdenum. Stainless steel is resistant to rusting and corrosion. I got this information of one of the websites in the related links. http://www….thefreedictionary.com/stainless+steel (MORE)
Stainless steel is the term used to describean extremely versatile family of engineering materials, which areselected primarily for their corrosion and heat resistantproperties. All stainless steels contain principally iron and aminimum of 10.5% chromium. At this level, chromium reacts withoxygen an…d moisture in the environment to form a protective,adherent and coherent, oxide film that envelops the entire surfaceof the material. This oxide film (known as the passive or boundarylayer) is very thin (2-3 namometres). [1nanometre = 10-9 m]. Thepassive layer on stainless steels exhibits a truly remarkableproperty: when damaged (e.g. abraded), it self-repairs as chromiumin the steel reacts rapidly with oxygen and moisture in theenvironment to reform the oxide layer. Increasing the chromiumcontent beyond the minimum of 10.5% confers still greater corrosionresistance. Corrosion resistance may be further improved, and awide range of properties provided, by the addition of 8% or morenickel. The addition of molybdenum further increases corrosionresistance (in particular, resistance to pitting corrosion), whilenitrogen increases mechanical strength and enhances resistance topitting. Corrosion is the gradual degradation of ametal by a chemical, often electrochemical, reaction with thesurrounding environment. It impacts material properties such asmechanical strength, appearance, and impermeability to liquids andgases. Although stainless steels are often chosen because of theirresistance to corrosion, they are not immune to it. Whether astainless steel is corrosion resistant in a specific environmentdepends on a combination of its chemical composition and theaggressiveness of the environment. Stainless steels are often selected for theircorrosion resistance, but they are often also constructionmaterials. Mechanical properties such as strength, high-temperaturestrength, ductility, and toughness are therefore also importantconsiderations. The toughness of the different types ofstainless steels shows considerable variation, ranging fromexcellent toughness at all temperatures for the austenitic steelsto the relatively brittle behavior of the martensitic steels.

Stainless steel in metallurgical definition is a steel that contains ~14% or more Chromium. Other alloying elements such as Nickel can also improve steel's stain resistance properties. The amount of free Chromium, i.e. not tied up in carbides determines steel's stain resistance ability. Higher carb…on content leaves less free Chromium in the alloy, which explains why some of the high end stainless steels with more % of Chromium are less stain resistant than lower grade stainless steels with less Chromium and Carbon. However, given time and conditions all steels will rust. For more information on alloying elements effects on the steel see the related links. (MORE)
All stainless steel has at least 10.5% Chromium in it. Chromium is what makes the steel stainless. The other elements in stainless steel can be nickel, nitrogen, molybdenum. You can find more information here: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-stainless-steel.htm It is the incorporation of a good bi…t of chromium that makes steel into stainless steel. The presence of chromium in steel alloys allows them to resist chemical attack better than "regular" steels. Stainless steel contains chromium. The chromium forms a protective oxide layer on the metal surface. Even when scratched or cut, a new chromium oxide layer will form in stainless steel. (MORE)

Stainless steel has a different metals which help reduce corrosion or rust when placed in water for a length of time. As opposed to high carbon steel. It is preferred by Health Inspectors throughout the United States.
Yep, you can weld steel to stainless and you can weld stainless to steel. You can use steel or stainless welding rod in either case but the steel or steel welding rod will of course rust.
Stainless steel is dishwasher safe but it is best to clean by hand.Using a fine powder cleanser and warm water is the safest way toclean them.
\nThe temp. gauge on the side of the water heater is obviously set too high causing this problem. Turn down the heater until the problem is solved.
Stainless steal is a mixture of carbon (2%) atoms and chromium (13%) and steel (85%). Stainless steal is more brittle than other metals because of the high carbon content. Chromium helps protect the steel from rust.
It heavily depends on which type of stainless steel you're referring to and what your definition of strong is. High carbon and perhaps plain carbon steels would be harder then austenite and ferritic stainless, but martensitic stainless would be harder then plain/high carbon. Austenite and ferritic s…tainless would be tougher and austenite would have have highest degree of corrosion resistance. I consider a steel to be "strong" if it has a balance of hardness and toughness in which case,I would say martensitic stainless steels. (MORE)
We have a set of stainless steel flatware which shows patches of small black pits and discoloration. Please advise.
Stainless steel because it does not have to be combined with oxygen is stainless. Becauseit is alloyed with chrome and stainless steel.
Stainless steel is steel. Assuming that you mean high carbon steel, and martensitic stainless and proper heat treatment, most of the martensitic steels would be harder with some exceptions.

Stainless steel is an Alloy steel because it contains chromium as an alloying element - steels without alloying elements are called carbon steels.
The primary characteristics that steel and stainless steel share are that both are steels, and are made of iron with a bit of carbon in them. While stainless steel has about 10% or more of chromium in it, the "steel" part is still essentially the same.

no Actually, despite the opinion of the previous poster, yes you can! Use a flux suitable for stainless and there should be no problems. I've done it many many times completely without issue.
You can weld stainless steel to stainless steel using various welding methods such as TIG welding and MIG welding. However, it is best to get a professional to do the job. And understand that stainless steel does not weld very successfully under any circumstances - it will almost always, inevitably,… break right next to the weld. (MORE)
Stainless steel does not usually rust. It will pit and also undergo crevice corrosion, so would need more information on the environment it is to be placed in. Also would need to know what grade of stainless steel - 302, 304, 316, 316L?

ordinary steel will oxidize and rust when exposed to water; stainless steel has chromium which prevents this from happening
because of all the grease that gets on it, it needs to clean so they used STAINLESS steel and also beause we use cutlery to eat so it always has to be looking cleaning or else if they used steel it self you may be affected with chemicals or sorts of kind thats another reason why we used STAINLESS.
It depends on the type of stainless steel. Stainless steels come in various compositions and are identified by numbers and letters. Electrodes should be chosen that match these. For example when welding 316 stainless use type 316 electrodes. In a lot of situations you can safely use the next higher …number. 304 stainless can be welded with 308 electrodes, 308 stainless with 310 electrodes. 309 electrodes are generally used to weld stainless to carbon steel.
