Thanks, you’ve answered a lot of questions I had. The explanation makes sense. Stainless steel body is reminiscent of the DeLorean. Different stainless steels, though, demonstrate different resistance to rust. High quality and fairly expensive 316 SS, for example, rusts in the salt spray of an offshore oil rig. Hopefully this SS will stand up to ice melting chemicals better than that..
