Metals can be elements, yes, however, most that you would see on a day to day basis i.e. cookware, door handles, etc. Most of these metals are alloys, which are a mixture of several elemental elements. For example, brass, a common door handle metal, is a mixture of zinc and copper. So, to find out the elemental metals, look at a periodic table.
