I'm always gunshy about using aluminum in my cooking and baking. They used to believe it contributed to Altzheimer's; I don't know if they still do, but I figure why take the chance?
Don's mom died of Altzheimer's. She used to always use aluminum ALL THE TIME, and she drank several beers (out of aluminum cans) every single day of her life -- Marie did love her beer! -- and I really got the connection. I just don't use aluminum ever.
Does it really make that much of a mess in the pan? Even if you spray it well with Pam first?
