I've had good results from this one:

It handles stainless and steel equally well. Not cheap, but good.

The Imperial brand of benders (the ones I use) are also good quality, but not cheap. Very similar to the Rigid one posted by Hotrod46.

X2. I've got a set of the Imperial benders. You can find them on ebay for reasonable prices. I won't use anything else.

I only have one job to do and may never do another one I got a bender from Harbor Freight that is similar in pattern to the Imperial. Works fine just oil the dies a bit so the shoe of the bender slides easier.
