Are all stainless steels non-magnetic?

No. The austentic or 300 series stainless steels are generally non-magnetic but high levels of cold work make them somewhat magnetic. Castings made out of these stainless steel can also be somewhat magnetic. The slight magnetism is not an indication of a problem with the stainless steel. Other stainless steel families are naturally magnetic (e.g. ferrtic 400-series and duplexes).
