Could you please let me know if anyone is aware of this type of
frames?

Buy the frame you want, then go to Wal-Mart or any crafts store and
buy a roll of adhesive backed magnetic tape. Apply the tape to the
back of the frame, and put it on the fridge door.

aluminum or plastic....

Velcro.


I use commercial grade Velcro to hang pictures, up to 16x20 with small
frame, on the walls of my motor home. Some have been there for 50,000 miles
over all kinds of roads.

I use the magnetic tape to attach carpet to the outside steps of the motor
home. I do add hot glue to the tape, but I leave the carpets on the steps
when driving. I've never lost one. They wear out in about 2 years, and I
remove the magnetic tape and put them on the back of new carpet.

Either would work, but the magnetic tape will be easy to take down and clean
the fridge door, it the door is a metal that will hold the magnet. If you're
worried about the adhesive giving way, just tack the magnet down with hot
glue or a bit of gorilla glue.

We have an employee with some of those fancy stainless steel
appliances. She says magnets don't stick.

So paint it white and use magnetic primer.

Some grades of stainless steel aren't magnetic. Depends on how much
nickel is in it, I gather.

Yes, you're right there is type of stainless called "Austenitic" that,
in the right conditions, is non magnetic. Slap it with a hammer (or
other tooling) and it becomes quite attracted to magnets, however.

At one time, before alloys that were magnetic become commonplace, the
standard test was to apply a magnet--if it didn't stick the part was
steel (aluminum and magnesium you could tell by weight, and titanium,
well, it didn't exist commercially).
