Unibits are not really made for going thru quality S.S. Some of the lower grade stainless has a lot of carbon in it and much easier to work on. Just sayin.
My pot is 1mm stainless but even if a step bit won't work that one that Wampus used will. The only thing that made mine difficult was that it was polished...slippery stuff
