I am looking for a stainless steel cookware and while researching on the best kind of stainless steel cookware, I came across this comment on youtube:
Actually 18/10 steel is better and costlier. You're talking in terms of health hazard where more nickel (10) is considered more harmful than less (8). But in reality more nickel makes a pot sturdier and shinier and less prone to chemical leaching.
So, my question is, is it true that more nickel in case of stainless steel means less leaching? I know 18/10 is better in heat distribution, is sturdier and better than 18/8, but it also has more Nickle. To me, it doesn't make sense. But then again, chemistry was not subject. Or I am worrying too much and just get either 18/8 or 18/10 steel?
