Let’s learn about stainless steel, its advantages and disadvantages in the context of today’s commercial equipment market! Hope the article below will shed light and help to clarify on your purchasing decision.

What is stainless steel?

Stainless steel is a general term of corrosion resistant alloy steels containing 10.5% chromium or more. All stainless steels are highly resistant to corrosion. This resistance is due to a naturally occurring chromium-rich oxide film formed on the surface of the steel.

Some outstanding advantages of stainless steel


Stainless steel brings to industry-leading durability material. Simply says, the material is very strong and retains its original shape for a very long time. It is highly resistant to impact, structural damage and the hardness of the steel is preserved over a high range temperature (up to about 1400 degrees F ~ 760 degrees Celsius).

If you buy products made from stainless steel, you can count on it to last for a very long time. It is not necessary to replace it as often. Except for the business requiring new equipment for additional functionality.


Stainless steel has superior corrosion resistance compared to other materials. Therefore, stainless steel is perfectly suited to variety of environments. However, it is worth noting that despite its resistance to corrosion, there are certain chemical environments that can cause issues for stainless steel equipment. It is advisable to talk to your provider for more details about its restrictions. This is how you can avoid exposing your new stainless steel appliance to the risk of corrosion.


Unlike other common materials, such as wood, plastic, and alloys, various metals (such as aluminum). Stainless steel retains a smooth surface, so as long as you maintain the stainless steel properly, there will be little dents, cracks and grooves forming on surface of stainless steel. This helps to keep itself clean, much more aesthetic than other materials because there is less chance for dirt and dust to stick. Moreover, bacteria will not have the opportunity to multiply and grow in hidden areas.

Resale value is guaranteed over time

Stainless steel equipment is very durable and can be maintained its original condition for a long time so it tends to hold significant resale value. This makes it a pretty safe and reasonable investment. Even if you’re not sure, whether you would need to replace it with a new one later on.

Fortunately, since stainless steel appliances have a pretty good resale value, you can simply sell the convection oven afterward, significantly reducing your costs.

Popular in the market

Because of the outstanding advantages of stainless steel, products made from stainless steel are used quite commonly everywhere. It won’t be too surprising when you easily meet items, decorations, industrial equipment, construction works – architecture, … are all made from stainless steel. Therefore, you will have no problem finding stainless steel equipment suppliers in the market. In addition, stainless steel can also be recycled to serve many different purposes, helping to reduce significant costs.

Some disadvantages of stainless steel

Stainless steel is the alloy that has the least disadvantages compared to all other alloys. At the same time, with their disadvantages, they do not affect the characteristics of stainless steel and the working principle of the product.

Tends to be more expensive than other materialsstainless steel

The truth is that stainless steel appliances tend to be more expensive than other materials, such as aluminum. Perhaps this is the most fundamental drawback of stainless steel appliances but it should be recalled that the resale value of stainless steel equipment is quite high. Furthermore, stainless steel is more durable and easier to maintain so in terms of long-term use you can see that the overall cost will be less than other alternative materials.

Easy to keep dirt (smudges)
