We have over 40 years experience in the metal fabricating business. We specialized in the Beverage and Dairy industry. We started making extra thick 304 and 316 Alloy Stainless Washers and Spacers for our own needs and some customers started asking if they could buy some of our washers. So, we started to sell them online, to individuals and companies. We have sold to all 50 states in the US and also Guam, Puerto Rico and 15 international countries.

 In the past, we would buy stainless washers and spacers from other companies. Some of them would charge over $20.00 for one washer and another $9.00+ for shipping. We can sell that same size washer for $9.80 and with FREE SHIPPING. On some of our washers and spacers, we are about 3 or 4 times cheaper than some other companies, when you include shipping charges.

We ship Same Day, Before 2:00 pm PST / 5:00 pm EST

Some other companies can have descriptions of their washers as “Stainless Steel” or “18-8”. 

The term “Stainless Steel” could mean any stainless alloy.
If the description only says "stainless steel", you don’t know what you are getting.

Stainless Steel: All About Food Grade 304, 18/8 and 18/10

What's the difference between the different grades of stainless steel (304, 430, 220, etc.)? What do the different numbers mean (18/8, 18/10, 18/0, etc.)? We often get these questions here at MightyNest and hope this post helps answer those questions.

The "grade" of stainless steel refers to its quality, durability and temperature resistance. The numbers (18/8, 18/10, etc.) are the composition of the stainless steel and refer to the amount of chromium and nickel (respectively) in the product.

So, what do the numbers mean?

18/8 and 18/10: These are the two most common grades of stainless steel used for food preparation and dining, also known as Type 304 (304 Grade) and are part of the 300 series. The first number,18, refers to the amount of chromium present and the second represents the amount of nickel.  For example, 18/8 stainless steel is comprised of 18% chromium and 8% nickel.  

304 grade stainless steel is comprised of 18% chromium and 8% nickel AND also comprised of no more than 0.8% carbon and at least 50% iron. The chromium binds oxygen to the surface of the product to protect the iron from oxidation (rust). Nickel also enhances the corrosion resistance of stainless steel.  Therefore, the higher the nickel content, the more resistant the stainless steel is to corrosion. 



The 304 alloy stainless is guaranteed to have less the 0.8% carbon.

"18-8" is NOT guaranteed to have less than 0.8% carbon and most likely it will have more than 0.8% carbon. That is why you may see rust forming on "18-8" washers.

"18-8" means you don't know how much carbon there is in the washer.

304 has a higher qualification to meet.


We have metallurgical test results from the 304 and 316 alloy stainless material that we use in our washers


Thanks for the interest,
