IMO, an incorrect statement is less helpful than no statement at all.

Right, I agree Mel. But those that are (attracted to magnets) have a higher content of carbon which is one of the main components that causes oxidization. The point being is 18-8 stainless steel isn't supposed to be magnetic, so it isn't as likely to oxidize, but the dissimilar metals will cause oxidization and where the Anti-Seize will help.

I was always told (mostly in marine industry arena) to void using copper-based anti seize on aluminum since it can promote galvanic corrosion of the aluminum. Guess I need to do some more reading. Thanks

Anti-Seize did come in aluminum also but it's been years since I purchased the aluminum anti-seize.
