Default Cleaning

OM
Not sure about AL, but Copper pots and such can be cleaned with salt and a lemon pretty easy. Might be worth a try.
Dump salt on the pot and rub it in with half a lemon.

If the food doesn’t touch the pan you are good to go Jerry.

AL frying pans and pancake griddles are OK because the food sits in the grease and rarely touches the metal directly.

I would definitely stay away from any spaghetti sauce made in an AL pot.
IMHO the combination of AL and the acid in the tomatoes is a poison maker.

And now for a bump back to the top for a reminder about cooking with aluminum and an video exposing the aluminum Coke can liner.

IF you really consider Carbonic acid an acid I guess there is but it's so weak as to hardly qualify. :-) CO2 dissolved in water. You had better be careful of all that ACID in anything that fizzes. :-) If the Aluminum is good hard anodized it would/should be pretty impervious to contaminating contents in a cooking environment. Cleaning with HCl (your swimming pool acid) will almost surely strip it to bare Aluminum and be easily attacked by any weak acid like tomatoes . . The Teflon coated pans/pots should be pretty safe from that standpoint.

Aluminum is amphoteric. Zinc is also.

Now you are going to make me lookup that big word. I don’t remember that being in my 6th grade vocabulary class.
