Step 1

When choosing steel for a teapot, stainless steel should be preferred. The anti-corrosion resistance of the material will save you from expensive processing of the product. And there is no guarantee that during operation a layer of applied enamel will not be accidentally chipped off, after which the first signs of rust will appear. Damaged kitchen utensils must not be continued to be used, as harmful metal compounds will enter the water and, with the liquid, into the human body. A stainless steel teapot is attractive in every way. Its shiny surface looks beautiful and attracts attention, and in the process of use, the product does not require special handling and maintenance. In addition, due to physical laws, the water in it cools more slowly.

Step 2

Give preference to steel with high strength and ductility. Such a material best tolerates temperature changes, so the kettle can be taken with you to nature and heated in it, for example, water over a fire. In the world market, austenitic steel of the AISI 304 brand, which has all the properties that are important for the modern consumer, has proven itself well. The content of chromium in the material is 18-20%, nickel - 8-10.5%, carbon - no more than 0.08%. Translated into Russian standards, the AISI 304 brand corresponds to steel manufactured according to the standards of GOST 08X18H10. GOST should be read as follows: the first digits mean the carbon content, the subsequent alphabetic and numerical values ​​are equal to the chemical elements and their percentage.

Step 3

Choose steel with a high molybdenum content, for example AISI 316 (Russian counterpart - GOST 02X17H14M2). This material has increased resistance to corrosion, therefore it can be used in aggressive environments. However, such steel is less workable than AISI 304, and slightly differs in color.
