Isn't stainless steel already magnetic? Aluminum is not.
Series 300 stainless...No

Series 400 stainless...Yes

At least that's what I was taught by a Machinist friend.

Stainless Steel Properties

There are magnetic stainless steels. There are several families of stainless steel with different physical properties. A basic stainless steel has a ‘ferritic’ structure and is magnetic. These are formed from the addition of chromium and can be hardened through the addition of carbon (making them ‘martensitic’) and are often used in cutlery. However, the most common stainless steels are ‘austenitic’ – these have higher chromium content and nickel is also added. It is the nickel which modifies the physical structure of the steel and makes it non-magnetic.
