Cast Aluminum

Saw this cast aluminum pot at Target the other day. How is this even legal? Isn't aluminum highly toxic to ingest?

        These are lined with plastic, you aren't cooking in them, and soda is already toxic.

        So when I smoked weed out of a pop can pipe I was inhaling burnt plastic? I thought I was only inhaling aluminum!
        This is even worse than I thought before!

          yeah and most the nasty kind of plastic.

          these are coated with epoxy resin which is made from BPA and epichlorhydrin which is then cured by mixing it with amines like phenylenediamine

          Burning HDPE is just like burning a candle.

        I don’t understand. What point is he making? Aluminum cans are bad or protective?

          Plastic lining stops acid in soda from eating through the can and keeps aluminum out of the soda. Expiration date on soda is usually for the plastic and expired sodas will begin to leak.

      Those are lined with plastic, and never see anything above 100°F, only the morons who smoke pot out of a can pipe have toxin issues
      Aluminum is fine for cooking anything that has almost ZERO acid in it.
      I still wouldn't ever buy one.
      I found a large AL stockpot being thrown out one time so I snagged it to use as a scalding pot for chickens. Just seeing the heavy pitting on the inside, I knew some retard had cooked large amounts of tomato sauce in it for years.
      it really makes you wonder how many of those customers were irreparably mentally damaged by that.

          People often think that long road trips is what puts a lot of mileage on their cars but in reality is the daily back and forth to work is where the majority of the wear and tear come from... same with your lungs

    I thought it was illegal to sell aluminum cookware in the USA, especially since I haven't seen it in years, but I saw an aluminum pot for sale at Fiesta (Houston local Mexican supermarket) just last week and had to do a double take. I wonder if president Brandon changed the law.

          probably maybe. evidence is inconclusive but to be fair there's very little reason to risk it with all the options for cookware we have these days.

              No I eat correctly, and also I am right.

              as someone who has talked with an alzheimers doctor and asked him, the aluminum thing is bullshit. do some research before you speak.

          Unless you're an antivaxxer worrying about the tiny little bit which makes it from the pan into the food into your blood is silly. They are shooting far more directly into you with the vaxx.

            Also you're more likely to get your aluminium poisoning from antiperspirant, if at all.

    raw aluminum is commonly used to cook in every part of the world. Restaurants mostly use aluminum cookware. Classic moka pots are made of aluminum.
    It's pretty much safe to use, unless you often cook very acidic foods in it for a long time. Otherwise it's well below the safety thresholds.

      yeah, WTF is going on in this thread. Does no one here work in a restaurant? Pretty much all restaurant pans are made out of aluminum(or atleast 80%) since they're cheap and transfer heat literally 5x faster than stainless steel.
      Pretty much all sheet pans are made out of aluminum too.
      Not to say aluminum isnt toxic, but the circumstances where it is are VERY rare. Pure aluminum in a vacuum will be toxic, but once it oxidizes(which happens in seconds after its cast) it gets a very strong layer of oxide that would need some pretty strong chemical to dissolve it off(which it would then re-form right away once you clear the surface)

      Its still a good idea to avoid it if you can though, if only cause its not very durable.

        Also very lightweight compared to other materials, and that makes a difference when you have to handle large pots all day.

      that's what ceramic pans are, aluminum with a coating of enamel. non stick pans are also almost always made out of aluminum. if it is not clearly labeled as steel, chances are that it is aluminum. it's just not used uncoated because it is not safe.

    I don't know if anyone has ever told you but you shouldn't be ingesting your cookware, no matter what it's made of.

    This is hispanics or other foreigners buying whatever their mothers told them to buy.

    You don't store leftovers, or cook acidic foods in items that will leech metal into your food overnight, that's all.
    They can ban my aluminum based antiperspirant over my dead body! It works. I also think it does not lead to dementia. I also buy actual talcum powder on the net, as well. Who wants corn starch sugars in moist places, uhhh no one ever. I will still powder down before a marathon or summer evening the correct way.
