It's not the lack of iron that makes stainless steel non-magnetic.
It's the way that it's heat-treated as well as the other metals that
are added. From what I've read (I guess you missed the quotes and
links) after the steel is heated to make it non-magnetic, nickel is
added to (among other things) keep it non-magnetic after it cools.
Here are the links I posted :

Have you no moral compass, sir?

You mean there are people posting opinions about the magnetisability
of stainless steel in this thread who don't know what they're talking
about and don't much care? Why would they be doing that?

Of course they did. The problem was that nobody who counted as an
authority did :-)

It contains lots of iron.

It's rather less amazing if you do a bit of checking and discard the
nonsense that's so generously offered :-)

Me too, I was being hypothetical. I can't stand stuff on the fridge..
If we wanted a noticeboard we'd buy one. It just amuses me to see what
some people stick on them.

And here's an etiquette question. When visiting someone (oh, let's say
an acquaintance rather than a close friend), is it rude to look at
what's on their fridge? The only reason I ask is that sometimes I
notice the things on there can give a rather intimate insight into their
affairs.. (O:

Thanks to this thread, I will personally inspect the magnetic qualities
of any future purchase of large kitchen appliances.

I really hate it when I see someone's icebox covered in invitations to
parties I didn't know about. That's obnoxious! So, if it's on the box,
it's your duty to read closely.......or at least oooh and aaaah over the
cute photos.
