Metal Monday: Stainless Steel Scrap

Finding stainless steel scrap in restaurant equipmentStainless steel is great to sell….but very hard to identify the different grades of stainless. Stainless steel has many grades but like all metals, some are worth more then others. It will be tough to tell, but assume that most of the time the stainless that you will have is called 303/304 stainless steel. This is the most common in items like:

  • Grills
  • Kitchen Appliances
  • Sinks
  • Other household items.

Sorting Stainless Steel Scrap

Stainless is a VERY hard to cut and even harder to clean or to take glue or paint off of. We never recommend trying to clean stainless unless you are able to unscrew items relatively easily. The easiest thing that we recommend cleaning is the stainless steel sinks. You can unscrew the brass from underneath and then have a 2-4 pound piece of brass to sell.
