I work at a company that makes commercial griddles and deep fat fryers. Purchasing has requested that I investigate changing the material for the control panel from 304 SS to 430 SS.

It seems that from a corrosion perspective that this should be feasible.However, I seem to recall someone telling me that 430 couldn't be used in a "food zone" because it is magnetic.

I checked with NSF/ANSI 51 Food Equipment materials and theres noting mentioned about materials that were not allowed due to being magnetic. I just want to double check to see if there was a reason that I remembered the "no magnetic in food zone" rule or if anybody else had heard that as wellThanks.
