For 18/8, it means the material have 16%~18%, the number 18 means chrome 18%, and number 8 means nickle has 8%.
For 18/0, it also means chrome 16%~18%, but the nickle is zero, because the nickle is very expensive, 18/8 is much more expensive than 18/0.
For 18/10, it means chrome 16%~18%, but nickle is 10%.
Actually, the material 18/8 and 18/10 are the same material, because the tolerance of nickle is 8%~10%.
In china, we select 8% as our standard, but in Europe, people will select higher percentage as their standard. So we call it 18/8 in china and Europe people call it 18/10.
