Stainless steel is steel to which chromium has been added, providing resistance to corrosion, scratches, stains and rust. Stainless steel is available in a variety of finishes, and the satin finish is a common choice for sinks. It's silver in colour with a light shine, and doesn't show minor scratches and spots like a mirror finish does. Clean your stainless steel sink with the proper cleaning products to maintain its resistance to wear and keep it looking new.
