Question:

Why is it called Stainless Steel?

I work with stainless steel a lot and I know it's rust resistant but it's definitly not STAIN resistant. You might be able to remove some stains easier from it than you can from some other surfaces but when it does stain, its hard as heck to clean it. It takes forever to scrub stains off my stainless steel pans so maybe it should just be called rustless steel?

Answer:

Stainless steel is not suppose to rust! If it does use Barkeepers (its comes in a can like comet but it isn`t) and you can buy it in the same section. It is called Bar Keepers friend. It is especially used on stainless steel.

It is called stainless because it is much more highly resistant to rust and corrosion. It is stainless in camparison to other steels, such as carbon steel.
