Stainless steel typically has a little magnetism. Far less than steel though. 300-series has less than 400-series. 316 is typically used in marine applications, it has a bit better corrosion resistant than 304, the most common grade.

Anyhow, it's pretty easy to conduct a surreptitious ferromagnetism test if the need arises.

I'm getting more curious now. The pan they have is mostly shiny silver with a few flecks of black on the sides/bottom. But it is cast - the handle is integrated, not riveted on. It looks just like cast Iron, but it is shiny. It is about as heavy as cast iron (not aluminum). I know you can cast stainless, but it's a pain and I think the handle would be really tricky. I can't find an example on google anywhere - it may be a one of a kind.

Could be nickel plated iron. I have seen cast aluminum pots; they had a wrinkley finish and the crevices had black...stuff in the bottoms. They wouldn't be shiny shiny bright tho, not after any use anyway.

It does sound like cast stainless. It's possible.

WW-II minesweepers were built to be non-magnetic, so they would not attract mines. The hulls were oak. The engines were cast in stainless steel. The engine in the one we toured was about the size of a mid-size car. It's a two-stroke, and has a special allowance to run without most modern anti-pollution measures.

A friend of ours has a  steel pan that looks like a regular cast iron, but it's shiny. It is great. I'm used to our cast iron, so it is weird to see that finish. I couldn't find a brand on it anywhere, I wonder if it's a lodge.

yep. seasoned it just like a wok or cast iron.

One morning, I was cooking home fries in my wok and I thought someone should make frying pans out of this stuff because it really cooks up home fries nice and quick. Turns out they do.
Lodge makes a whole line of carbon steel skillets and grills. This one isn't lodge. I got it from chefs.com and it's their house brand.

Nice paddle! Very pretty.  I have a Werner Shuna among others (I'm a paddle slut) and it is one of my favourites.  I wish I'd got a 210 cm instead of a 205 though.
