I was given a spring form pan that would be good to use as a firepot, but I'm not sure if it's stainless or galvanized. The hinge shows signs of rust, but the pan itself is rust free. I put a magnet to it to see if there was a zinc layer that wouldn't attract it, but it stuck without any issue. However, I know this rule doesn't apply if the zinc layer isn't thick enough or if certain other galvanizing methods are used. I looked up the company name that's stamped on it (Rowoco), but they don't have this pan listed anywhere. Does anyone know a way to test this instead of just heating it up and watching for smoke?
