Stainless steel is a sanitary metal. It has a perfectly smooth hard oxide layer which offers inferior ccommodation to these microorganisms, so it doesn’t allow microorganisms to colonize and make the water stays clean. Many brass forged faucets are rough and foreign material collects over time negatively altering the taste and hygeine of your water.

Unlike brass taps, stainless steel contains no lead (Pb), it is regarded as the most hygienic material, that’s why it’s used in not just restaurants, but hospitals abundantly.
