Stainless Steel Dinnerware For Kids

Stainless Steel Dinnerware For Kids – Kids Stainless Steel Plates, Bowls, Cups And Utensils

 

In the past, I wrote a post about non toxic dinnerware which talks about lead-free dinnerware.  Most of the time, I use Corelle Winter Frost White Dinnerware which is made of glass as my dinnerware and it has been working great.  However, since it is made of glass, it can break when it is dropped or get chipped when it gets hit hard.   Therefore, it may not be the preferred material choice used for young kids.  I found that stainless material worked the best when it comes to my daughter.  Stainless steel dinnerware is light, non-toxic, easy to clean, easy to handle and durable.  Stainless steel is a great material choice for kids dinnerware or snack containers.  I loved using bowls and cups made with stainless steel for my daughter so I wanted to also get some stainless steel dinner plates.  In this post, I share with you what stainless steel dinnerware for kids are available including kids stainless steel plates, stainless steel bowls, stainless steel cups and stainless steel utensils.

 

 

Things To Consider For Stainless Steel Dinnerware

Here are somethings to consider when choosing stainless steel dinnerware.

  • Stainless steel is considered non toxic in general. It doesn’t contain harmful heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium or arsenic.  Its main ingredients include chromium, nickel and iron.  Food grade or medical grade stainless steel are safe to use for food or medical applications such as implants, tools or devices.  Although stainless steel doesn’t leach harmful chemicals into food, very acidic food such as lemon juice or tomato sauce can make stainless steel leach chromium, nickel or iron at a very small amount during long duration cooking or storage.  Since you are not cooking or storing acidic food for a long duration and will just be eating food from dinnerware, this shouldn’t be a concern.  However, if your child is allergic to nickel or have health issues concerning iron, nickel or chromium, consult with your child’s pediatrician.
  • Food grade stainless steel includes 400 series (430), 300 series (304, 316), and 200 series.  
  • Most commonly used food grade stainless steel is 304 and there are two different types of 304 stainless steel: 18/10 and 18/8.  18 indicates chrome content in the stainless steel which is 18% and 10 or 8 indicates nickel content in the stainless steel which are 10% and 8%.  18/10 stainless steel has more nickel than 18/8 stainless steel. 
  • Nickel helps stainless steel be more resistant to corrosion.  The more nickel stainless steel contains, the more corrosion resistant it is. 18/10 stainless steel is more corrosion resistant than 18/8 stainless steel. Typically, stainless steel with higher nickel content is more expensive because the price of nickel is not cheap and it also provides a higher corrosion resistance. 
  • Stainless steel grade 316 contains approximately 16–18% chromium, and 10–14% nickel and 2% molybdenum.  It is more resistant to corrosion than grade 304 stainless steel.  Grade 316 stainless steel is more expensive than grade 304 stainless steel.  Most stainless steel containers or dinnerware use 304 stainless steel since 304 stainless steel offers excellent corrosion resistance and value for its price.
  • 400 series (430) is 18/0 stainless steel (18% chromium and 0% nickel) so it has no nickel amount. Therefore, it is less resistant to corrosion than 300 series.
  • 200 series contains manganese instead of nickel.  Manganese is a lot cheaper than nickel and it is less resistant to corrosion than nickel. 200 series stainless steel is lower quality stainless steel.
  • Therefore, look for dinnerware products made with food grade 304 (18/10 or 18/8).
  • Some manufacturers can mark stainless steel products 18/10 when their stainless steel only contains a slightly higher than 8% such as 8.2% or 8.4% which is allowable labeling.  Although 18/10 may be better, both food grade 304 stainless steel which come in 18/10 and 18/8, should be fine for dinnerware.
  • Some flatware uses 430 stainless steel which is 400 series and they will have a reduced corrosion resistance than 304 stainless steel.  They also tend to be less shiny and cheaper in price. 

 

 

Stainless Steel Plates For Kids

I only included stainless steel dinnerware that is made of 304 stainless steel (18/10 or 18/8) below.   During my research, I have seen some stainless steel dinnerware that was made of 200 series which is lower quality stainless steel.  There were also 18/0 stainless steel dinnerware or 18/0 stainless steel utensils that were made of 400 series which do not contain any nickel.  If your child is allergic to nickel and would like to avoid nickel, there are some 18/0 stainless steel dinnerware or utensils available.

Final Thoughts

Stainless steel is a great non toxic material choice for kids dinnerware.  Stainless steel dinnerware doesn’t break easily, it is easy to clean and maintain.  There are several different types of stainless steel and 304 stainless steel (18/10 or 18/8) should be a good choice.  Type 200 stainless is a lower quality stainless steel and 403 is also less corrosion resistant.  Type 200 and 403 stainless steel dinnerware may be cheaper in price but may not be as good quality as type 304.  Therefore, when you buy stainless steel dinnerware, find out what type of stainless steel it is made of.  Hope this post helps you find stainless steel dinnerware for your child.
