Stainless steel, on the other hand, is not a naturally occurring substance but an alloy of different elements. Since it is made through the combination of different elements, it is a little bit heavy, and as a result, it is used to create an object that can resist stress. It can resist corrosion just like aluminum. However, one of the significant differences between aluminum and stainless steel is that aluminum is a stronger heat conductor than stainless steel. Another thing is, Stainless Steel has more weight compared to aluminum. Since aluminum is a very common material, it is cheaper than stainless steel
