This is not 100% stainless steel
on February 20, 2016
This is not stainless steel. Parts of it might be stainless, but the female threads on the syringe tube where it meets the injector threads is pitting and brittle. This is not stainless. The underside of the plunger syringe cap has also worn off a thin layer of some metal, and it is corroding. If this were stainless you should be able to remove the rust (if any) and it would revert to the original finish if polished. This is simply not the case. Some of these parts are plated. The point in buying stainless steel is to have something that will last, in addition I was interested in the non-reactive properties of stainless. If I were to inject anything acidic it will dissolve the metal ions and a) throw off the flavor and b) over time it is toxic.
If the product did not claim to be stainless it wouldn't be an issue. But I bought this product based on this claim. The product has been kept dry, treated the same as all my other metalware. This is the only product I have that is rusting, except for my skillet which is expected its cast iron. If anyone is interested I will post pictures of the peeling surface.
