Stainless steel comes in several common finishes. 

  • Mill Finish is the standard and is a dull grey on thin section
  • DP1 / DP2 is a dull polished (as shown in the pic) - it's actually a brush polished finish like a cooker hood
  • Bright Annealed is a "semi-mirror" polished - you can see your face in it but it's a bit distorted
  • Mirror polished is what it says - polished to a mirror surface

Polished stainless is only readily available up to around 5mm thick - any thicker and it has to be custom prepared (read expensive!)
