Purchase details of Stainless Steel Kitchen Cabinets :
① Don't buy the cheap ones
Everyone knows the principle of what you pay for. Each brand of stainless steel cabinets has different prices, but the general price is 2-3 times that of ordinary stone cabinets. If the price of the merchant is too cheap, it must be tricky.
② Look at the certificate
The surface of 304 stainless steel cabinets is generally stamped with the material "304" with a steel stamp. Check whether there is the wording when purchasing, and ask for the relevant warranty from the merchant.
③ Measuring magnetism
Genuine 304 stainless steel is generally non-magnetic or very weak. Take a piece of the iron-absorbing stone when you buy it. After repeated tests on the countertop and side of the stainless steel cabinet, 304 stainless steel has no obvious adsorption power. Counterfeit products are the opposite. Although this method cannot scientifically verify the true and false, repeated tests can identify the weak magnetic coating on the counterfeit stainless steel.
④ Identification potion
The popular stainless steel identification solution on the market can know which type of stainless steel it is by detecting the content of Ni (nickel) in the stainless steel. Drop the potion on the surface of stainless steel. Generally, 201 stainless steel will show dark red, and 304 will show colorless or light yellow. However, this identification method is relatively old. It should be noted that the detection principle of the potion is to identify nickel, so if the merchant If the surface is covered with a nickel-containing coating, it is impossible to distinguish.
Regardless of the material of the cabinet, the hardware is very important. When purchasing, it is the same as the ordinary cabinet. Pay attention to whether the surface of the hardware is smooth and whether it feels heavy.
