This grill was stamped out of mild steel, a steel containing low levels of carbon, making it softer than steels with a higher carbon content, and therefore easier to be stamped into a desired shape. A chromium alloy was then electroplated to the surface, a process known as chrome plating. This technique adds a very thin layer of chromium to the steel, giving it a decorative shine and adding corrosion resistance.
