Stainless steel does not stain, rust or corrode the way standard steel does. There are different grades of stainless steel which has an impact on the amount of resistance to corrosion and heat. Stainless steel is different from carbon steel, determined by the amount of chromium within. In addition, when it comes to this steel there are two grades, austenitic and martensitic.
Austenitic steel is made from chromium and nickel. While the martensitic is usually a stainless steel alloy made from hard steel crystalline. Both grades are designed to prevent corrosion. There are five different grades, 200, 300, 400, 500, and the 600 series.
