What Should I Look for in the Construction of Stainless Cabinets?

Most stainless steel furniture is made in a metal shop of heavy duty 18 or 20 gauge steel, and consists of welded pieces of laser cut steel.

Spot welding gives the cabinets a strong structure to support the weight of the cabinet, and its contents.

The corners of the cabinets should be hemmed and without gaps, and there should be no visible hardware sticking out of the stainless steel.

The cabinet doors should open smoothly, and close securely. Proper hinges will keep the doors from slamming shut.

Smooth drawer guides will ensure quieter opening and closing of drawers.

Most manufacturers will use stainless steel parts to ensure correct functioning of these moving parts.
