So how can you determine if your cookware is of high quality or not?. There is a simple test that you can do to determine this. Get a magnet and put it close to your cookware surface. If it sticks then it is a 18/0 stainless steel, if it doesn’t stick that it is either 18/8 or 18/10. These effect is due to the nickel presence in the alloy itself.. What the nickel does is neutralize the ferrous properties of the iron in the stainless steel alloy. Hence, there is no nickel presence in 18/0, so the magnet will stick to its surface. Always ensure that you do this simple test before buying your cookware. Most of the time, the nickel presence information is not available with the cookware.
