Walco holloware is exceptionally beautiful in its simplicity and remarkably durable in its design. These pieces of hollowware will complement nearly any restaurant’s décor or suit any catered event’s theme. Walco has over fifty years of experience crafting fine stainless steel products for restaurants and hospitality businesses.
Walco strives to offer the best quality stainless steel products at the best value on the market. They offer 18/0, 18/8 and 18/10 grade stainless products to best used for serving patrons from pitchers to buckets. When choosing the proper stainless steel, it is important to know what the grading system means and how it works. The 18 in the set of numbers stands for the percentage of chromium. In this case, all of Walco’s products have 18 percent chromium, which is the highest available on the market. Chromium is what makes the steel stainless, so the more of it, the better.
Nickel also plays a part in keeping the steel stainless since it has properties that resist corrosion and rust as well as chromium. The highest amount of nickel is ten percent, so 18/10 stainless steel is the highest grade stainless available for purchase. The term 18/0 is somewhat misleading in that it simply means there is no nickel in the alloy.
