im guessing my stainless steel cookware must not be all stainless then.. as it works on induction.. so must be just a stainless steel coating perhaps on the inside of the pan

Magnets do not stick to true stainless steel but they will stick to almost any stainless steel appliance sold to you.
Real stainless wont hold a magnet and if you want to work with it. You better have the right tools cause you will waste your time and money with the cheap tools.

All comes down to the grade of the stainless. Magnets will stick to all of it that has a high enough percentage of ferrous metal in the alloy. Low ferrous content will not hold a magnet. That is generally regarded as "the good stuff" since it is more rust resistant but it really depends on what the alloy was intended for. Knives typically need a higher ferrous content to hold a decent edge for example.

Word. The only tool that I own that will work with stainless is the angle grinder! I tried a jigsaw with metal blades, a hole saw and hand tools, but they didn't "cut it".

Tried to "bake" biscuits this morning on the cooktop. Well, I achieved about a 95% success rate. I set it up for 11 minutes at 375 and watched through the glass lid. Right idea, wrong mechanization. I had to remove the bottom 5% of each biscuit, as it had turned to charcoal. Next time, I'm trying a longer cook time at a lower temp.
