The most important feature of stainless steel is its resistance to rust. Stainless steel is an alloy of iron and at least 10.5% chromium in order to improve corrosion resistance. Nickel is often added as well.

Nickel is needed to further improve the rust resistance. The higher the amount of chromium and nickel, the more rust resistant it is, but the more expensive it is. When choosing a stainless steel product, please refer to word of mouth and reputation to find the right balance between performance and price.

Also, stainless steel has very low thermal conductivity and is susceptible to scorching. Try not to put it directly on the fire. It is relatively resistant to acids and alkalis, and is also shock resistant. This product is made of stainless steel with a double-layered structure using a special technology to block the outside air temperature.

hot-water bottle

A hot-water bottle is a container filled with hot water that is used to warm the body. A kind of simple heating device.

How to use

Pour hot water from a pot or other container, plug it in, and put it under a futon to heat the bed at bedtime. In addition to warming your body and legs, you can also place it on the back of a chair, or on your knees or feet to warm your legs and waist.

When adding hot water, the hot water bottle must be completely filled. This is because if water vapor and hot air remain inside the hot water bottle, they will cool down, condense, and contract over time, reducing the pressure inside and possibly deforming or damaging the hot water bottle.
