Has anyone else noticed the $149 insulated container is not stainless steel? Try sticking any kind of magnet on it. I have ones I use to submerge and separate my bags in a steel turkey pot that won’t stick to this one. What’s the deal?
I’m not familiar with the container you are referring to, but not all stainless steel is magnetic.
To quote something I found posted on the subject: “The most common stainless steels are ‘austenitic’ - these have a 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.”
Right Mirozen, always go shopping with a fridge magnet.
My 20 yr. old Weber grill table, and our 20 yr. old pots are Stainless and magnetic. My 2 yr. old pellet grill has a Stainless lid but it is non-magnetic. Different alloys of same metal.
I take a magnet when shopping for a pan to use with my induction cooktop, if the magnet sticks to the base it should be fine with induction cooking. Not all stainless steels will work!
