Stainless steel is a low carbon type of steel that contains chromium which is what provides the unique corrosion and stain resistant properties.  Chromium provides the invisible, rough chromium oxide film for excellent resistance to corrosion. If the film is damaged it heals itself when oxygen is present.  Additions of other elements such as nickel, nitrogen and molybdenum increase corrosion resistance and other properties.
