Question about KitchenAid KSF26C6Xyy Side by Side Refrigerator
Are there different levels of quality in stainless steel finishes on appliances? I would think that this KitchenAid would have real stainless steel trim.
Stainless steel is a term for a family of high chromium steels, some of which do in fact stain, although they do not rust as ordinary steel does.
The more expensive 'austenitic' stainless is non-magnetic, but harder to work into product shapes. 'Martensitic' stainless is a little more prone to staining and corrosion, but easier to work with, and is magnetic. Then 'ferritic' stainless is even cheaper, but less corrosion proof, and is also magnetic.
So yes, many stainless steels are magnetic, and if the manufacturer has not used the very most corrosion proof but expensive grade, then you will see it in that way. I would not see much reason for a fridge door to be made from austenitic stainless.
