What would you like to do?
Yes, it is. It is done all the time. Make no mistake about it. Aluminum on the atomic level (or a bit more if a cook is overzealous with utensils in the vessel) gets into the food cooked in uncoated aluminum vessels. But the amount is so small that no toxic threat is posed and no change in taste is effected. (There is no documented evidence.) Aluminum is being linked to Alzheimer's disease (dialysis dementia). It is only fair to mention this. But the link is tenuous. Do your own research. The chemistry of aluminum won't change for the reading. Aluminum is poorly absorbed by the body and is quickly passed through the system. We have been using (uncoated) aluminum cookware for years with no demonstrated ill effects. Research is ongoing. Aluminum resists corrosion by the simple mechanism of "putting on" a thin coat of oxide when exposed to air. This "blocks" further corrosion. When we scour the pan, we remove this thin layer. Don't panic - it's only atoms thick. A good rub with a "scrubbie pad" won't hurt. The pan needs to be clean. Some things we cook in the pan will "pull off" some of the aluminum. Tomato sauces are famous for leaving a bright shine on an uncoated aluminum pot where they are simmered. Aluminum is frequently the choice of professional chefs, and the uncoated kind of aluminum, too.

Thanks for the feedback!
Yes aluminum is safe to wrap up your food with. There are some studies that are trying to link the use of aluminum pots, pans etc. with an increased risk of dementia such as… Alzheimer's.
No it is not. It can be used in the oven when cooking roasts for ease of cleaning afterwards
Not without the risk of blowing up.
Hi there you can use aluminum in cooking in several way. The main way is to slow cook delicate foods such as fish .The fish is gutted and wrapped in the foil and herbs are add…ed, you slow cook it in the oven then when its read its like its been steamed . the foil prevents burning and drying the food out.
iron is a good conducter of heat. so that the food ur cokking wont get stuck on oil when cooked
because it doesn't explode or anything when it reacts.
If you're microwaving it, it isn't safe. Nor can you put it on the stove. But I think you can put it in the oven for a bake potato.
Cast Aluminum is made by pouring heated molten aluminum into a mold. During this process, microscopic air pockets form in the metal. This means that the resulting cookware ite…ms will hold their heat for longer than sheet cookware. It also makes them quick to heat up and they only need a low heat source. However, they are not so great at distributing the heat evenly and are also quite brittle. If they are dropped, they will probably crack. Cast aluminum cookware is porous and needs to be seasoned. How Do I Season It? Wash the cookware with hot soapy water.Dry it and then coat it thoroughly with vegetable oil. The easiest way is to pour the oil onto a paper towel and work it well into all the surfaces.Put the well-coated cookware into a 250 degree oven and leave it there for 2 hours.Never use scouring pads or detergent on cast ware. Simply wipe it out using a damp cloth.If food starts to stick to the cookware, just season it again. How Do I Look After It? Repeated washing in a dishwasher will strip off any seasoning, can cause discoloration and is not advised. Remove the staining by boiling something acidic like tomatoes or apple peelings and then re-season.Don't leave it to soak in soapy waterDon't use steel-wool pads to clean itYou can use non-abrasive cleaners or a paste made with baking soda and water. se either of these with a gentle, synthetic scourer and your sheet or cast aluminum will shine! Is It Safe? Many people are scared to use aluminum cookware as they believe it may cause Alzheimer's disease. Back in the 1970's, some researchers in Canada reported the finding that people who had died with Alzheimer's had unusually high levels of aluminum in their brains. It sparked controversy - was aluminum the cause of Alzheimer's, or the result of it? Many people were alarmed by this and threw away their aluminum cookware. More recent studies would seem to indicate that the increased levels of aluminum were due to the Alzheimer's itself. Brains which have already suffered damage from Alzheimer's will allow unusually high levels of aluminum in. This is not difficult as aluminum is everywhere. The most common elements on Earth (in order of prevalence) are oxygen, silicon, and aluminum. It's in air, water, soil and consequently in the plants and animals that we eat. So can using aluminum cookware harm me? Current research believes that it is safe to use. To put it into perspective, many common medications contain aluminum. One antacid tablet may contain more than 50 milligrams of aluminum.One aspirin may contain between 10 and 20 milligrams of it.The World Health Organization says that an adult can safely ingest more than 50 milligrams of aluminum each day. People in the western world naturally consume about 10 milligrams each day and only 2 of those milligrams come from aluminum cookware.
Yes just not in the microwave
no it is not safe!
no. If you cook it like that it will burn the house down and kill you in the explosing

No as long as you are not cooking foodstuff with citric content or highly acidic.
Aluminum is safe as long as it has been treated in some way to make sure the food doesn't come in contact with it. Usually the exterior of the pot is hard anodized to prevent …it from corroding, and the interior is given a non-stick coating to protect food from coming into contact with it. If aluminum is not treated, it reacts with food, especially acidic foods.
