Steel is also the most common metal alloy mixture of different elements like Carbon, mostly used in building houses, tools, motors and engines, industrial machineries, bars for making reinforced  concrete, kitchen cutleries, industrial plants,  ships and boats,  electrical appliances, rails for trains, electrical transformers and towers, bridges and other industrial machineries. The most attractive trait of steel is that it can be casted into various shapes. Perhaps one of the widest uses of this metal alloy is as Stainless Steel in household appliances, utensils and kitchenware. 

Stainless steel has an impressive tensile strength, is resistant to high and low temperatures, and is resistant to corrosion(https://fractory.com/what-is-stainless-steel/). The durability and long-lasting features of Stainless Steel makes it suitable for being molded in the form of utensils and other household tools. It is also among the most recycled metals which makes Steel scrap a good metal for the circular economy.
