Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between 304-series and 430-series stainless steel work tables?
- 300-series stainless steel contains both chromium and nickel, and is not magnetic. 400-series stainless steel contains chromium but NO nickel, and is magnetic.
400-series products, such as 430-series stainless steel worktables, are not quite as corrosion-resistant as 300 series, and therefore typically cost less. They are good for finishing surfaces.
300-series is corrosion-resistant, etch- and crack-resistant, and easy to clean and maintain. It is the most commonly used type of stainless steel.
What’s the difference between 14-gauge, 16-gauge, and 18-gauge stainless steel?
- The gauge refers to the thickness of the stainless steel. The lower the gauge, the thicker, and more durable the stainless steel.
An 18-gauge stainless steel construction is often reserved for budget-friendly worktables. These tables are often less expensive than standard tables and best reserved for light duty use, such as sandwich or salad prep. They’re lighter than 14-gauge or 16-gauge stainless steel equipment, and more susceptible to dents and dings.
16-gauge stainless steel is a bit thicker than 18-gauge, and therefore more durable while still remaining affordable. 16-gauge stainless steel equipment will better hold up against the daily wear and tear of commercial operations.
14-gauge stainless steel provides the highest durability, and therefore often come at a higher price point. They are ideal for use with heavy duty equipment and rougher prep work, such as meat tenderizing or use with cleavers, since they don’t dent as easily as thinner-gauge stainless steel.
