I love it
somebody talking my kinda shop talk
very well said, my friend. but, what you are discribing here is and alloy called 316 stainless steel.
316 is never used in food products it is always 304 or 18/8 is another way to say it, the nickel in 304 is in the 8% range and the crome is 18% more or less. there is no Moly . anything used in food or restaurants will be either 304 or 410, the easiest way to tell the difference is 304 is not magnetic, and 410 is,so just try a frig magnet on it
very often I have seen pots and pans marked on the bottom as being 18-8 stainless and after touching it with a magnet I've seen it's not. always keep a little frig magnet with you when shopping for stainless pots if it says 18/8 and sticks with a magnet, it's not
