Stainless steel is available in variety of thicknesses. The thicker the steel, the more beneficial it is. The thickness also depends upon the purpose of the component. If you are using stainless steel utensils, they may not need to be thick enough. But if you are looking for countertops or sinks of stainless steel, they need to be thick enough. In such circumstances, the thicker the steel, the toughest it is. For example, your sink needs to be thick enough to withstand the pressure, the weight of utensils etc. A thin sink can be easily damaged. Another thing to consider is the noise.
