Are stainless steel fridge doors magnetic?

I bought the Frigidaire stainless steel smudgeless fridge and was pleasantly surprised that the doors are magnetic.

I thought that wasn't possible... or are my doors not truly stainless steel? Hm....

No they are not. I have the same finish on my fridge I also had the really deal I love this one no finger prints and much easier to clean.

My LG and GE stainless steel appliances are not magnetic. But the side of the fridge is magnetic, the front is not.

Question
What does Real Stainless Steel mean?
Answer
Frigidaire’s Real Stainless Steel is true stainless steel that has been treated with a protective coating that reduces fingerprints and smudges, making it much easier to clean.

if its magnetic, its not real stainless steel, its a stainless steel finish (which is aweome because it looks like it, but without the finger smudges!)

Re: Are stainless steel fridge doors magnetic?

Stainless steel CAN be magnetic by nature
since it's an alloy, but the alloy used for most appliances isn't magnetic. It's also very possible that a magnetic "SS" fridge isn't really SS.

5. Is stainless steel magnetic?

Answer: There are several "types" of stainless steel. The 300 series (which contains nickel) is NOT magnetic. The 400 series (which just contains chromium and no nickel) ARE magnetic.

Re: Are stainless steel fridge doors magnetic?

Depending on the grade of stainless is what would determine if it's magnetic. The better grades aren't. If a real SS surface is scratched it can be restored. A finish with a clearcoat can not be restored.

Mine is only for REALLY strong magnets, the weaker, lightweight ones just fall off.
