Magnetic pot didn't work with induction cooktop

My wife, still not 100% happy with my choice to replace our cooktop with an induction (Monogram 5 top) has been looking for certain pots that she loved and found a Dutch oven by Oster which fitted the bill. Anyway, I"ve convinced her to walk around with a magnet (maybe it'll erase her charge cards!) and the bottom of this particular pan was magnetic but when put on the cooktop (we checked multiple burners) it registered an error message and won't heat. How come? Any answers? This is the only pot we've tried that checked as magnetic but didn't trigger the induction mechanism. (The blue thing is a magnet)
