Electric Water Heaters

I noticed recently that heating elements in some of the new water heaters are made of stainless steel. Could someone inform me of the advantages/disadvantages to SS or direct me to a site where I could be enlightened?

the advantages/disadvantages to SS

advantage = SS is corrsion resistant ... steel isn't

disadvantage = will cost more than steel.
