Default Recommendations for a good stainless steel door knob/deadbolt lock set?

All the ones I find online on Amazon/Home Depot/Lowes seem to be crap. Can anyone recommend a good stainless steel (or something that isn't going to rust) exterior door knob/deadbolt lock set?

Thanks.

Schlage has a lifetime warranty, and I have used it several times effortlessly for front door strikers. I know if I were to spend significant money on home door locks above box store brands, I would get pick resistant locks. Thieves can pick open a door lock like butter and lock it when they leave, but I have a 100# alarm with teeth so I don't worry so much.

If you go to the Schlage website they don't list stainless steel as a finish for door knob/handle/hardware. They list "Bright Chrome" "Satin Chrome" "Polished Nickel" "Satin Nickel" and "Distressed Nickel".

This is what the existing Kwikset lockset looks like after 5 years. I'm hoping for something more durable than this crap. Maybe Gemlux makes 316ss locksets? Lol
