The 18% chrome provides for maximum corrosion resistance and the 10% nickel gives each piece a brilliant finish. Other products that do not claim to be produced from 18/10 stainless steel or that use 18/0 stainless steel do not offer these benefits and can corrode in a short time of use. Provence features a perfect balance of mirror and frost accented design produced from high quality 18/10 stainless steel.
