Does the metal madder?

So I'm looking into a bit for my mini. I'm looking into getting him a simple snaffle to start. But I'm curious does the kind of metal madder? Are some just better quality or do some horses not like the taste of one? In the ones I'm looking at there are nickle plated/malleable iron and stainless steal. Which is "better"?

Don't get plated bits as they can chip and leave sharp points, they can also not taste very good to the horse. Lots os horses like sweet iron with copper inlayed in it. I use stainless steel bits on my horse because she foams way too much with a copper bit. With stainless steel, she gets a nice rim on her lips.
