It's steel. When i used a magnetic drain plug, it would always want to stick to the oil pan instead of going into the drain hole.

Which piece. It is a 2 piece pan. It is aluminum and the bottom portion is steel.

+1 a magnetic oil drain plug is always a good idea. Stick with the named brand magnetic oil drain plugs because the cheap knock off oil drain plugs will break over time.
