Stefan problem is a well known free boundary problem modeling a liquid-solid phase transition within a fixed domain $\Omega$. We establish a sharp nonlinear stability/instability criterion for the steady state spheres in the Stefan problem with surface tension. The nonlinear stability proof relies on a high-order energy method and the introduction of suitable orthogonality conditions.
