I have a aluminum large pot and cookie sheets with scratches on them. Are they items to get rid of?

You can line scratched sheet pans with parchment paper or silpat.

Get rid of the pot, but you can get by with just lining the cookie sheets with foil or parchement if you want.

I agree...get rid of the pot and keep the cookie sheets but line them with parchment or aluminum foil.

When you say aluminum you mean plain metal right, not Teflon? If they're Teflon toss them. If the pot is hard anodized aluminum it's unlikely you'll be able clean out the scratches and that anodized coating is too thick to remove easily.

Otherwise for plain aluminum I say keep them both. Scrub the #%&! out of them with steel wool and Bar Keeper's Friend, which is an abrasive cleaner containing oxalic acid. You'll remove the layer of aluminum oxide and polish the aluminum underneath, which will certainly remove gluten. Then wash out the pot with lots of dish liquid and a gluten free sponge and run the cookie sheets thru the dishwasher. And, to put my money where my mouth is, this is how I de-glutened my aluminum cookie sheets after 14 years of gluten-filled cookies being baked on them, with no ill effects.
