Fine Quality Stainless Steel Flatware is comprised of 18% chromium and 10% nickel but what if you have a nickel allergy? Chromium resists stains, rust, corrosion and is a strong solid metal in its own right. The nickel content adds to the strength of the product.
Chromium, or chrome, is a tough white metal, used in stainless steel and other alloys, because of how hard it is and its stain-resistant properties
Nickel is a corrosion-resistant silvery-white metal, often used for its shine to coat other metals
- Brilliant luster
- Rust-resistant material
- Durable construction
- Easy to maintain

- Zero nickel content
- Economical design
- Prone to staining
Even though this is all fine and dandy, some reviews don’t reflect the Nickely Challenged excitement. I was so happy coming across this article and thought that there was the hope of going out to eat without getting sick. Apparently, there are 18/0 stainless steel cookware; I didn’t know if their review is this bad. In other words, this needs further investigation.
Rapid rusting is not limited just to Oneida’s 18/0 flatware sets — zero nickel content flatware from all brands is not only more prone to rust, but it is also of a far less quality than 18/8 and 18/10 flatware that contains nickel, and natural, rust-resistant material that also prolongs the “shine” factor of flatware.
Even though the reviews are sort of terrible. Stainless steel silverware is a win for me. I hope all of you will join me in the investigation of this product. I will buy mine next week and will review it in a month. Anyone is welcome to share their thoughts, concerns and opinion about this product.
Till next Wednesday,
