Aluminum Bakeware And Tupperware ?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have aluminum bakeware and tupperware that I used before I went gluten free. Do I need to replace these or is there a way to clean these surfaces sufficiently to be able to keep on using them.

I appreciate your help.

Good news and bad news.

The bad news is you really should get rid of the Tupperware because tiny bits of gluten are probably lurking in all the tiny pits and scratches in the plastic. I personally wouldn't use aluminum even if it was new, but that's just me. I don't trust it not to leach into our food. (Perhaps someone else can give you some more encouraging info about the aluminum.)

The good news is you get to pick out some new stuff for your kitchen. :rolleyes:

I kept some Tupperware if it was in good condition. But I threw out quite a bit. Depends on the item.

My cookware is Calphalon hard anodized aluminum and I gave it a good scrubbing and it's been fine.

I think the bottom line is that if something is in good condition, I kept it. If not, I got rid of it. And it is fun buying new things...I just can't seem to stop. :lol:

This is actually embarassing. I have been gluten free for six months now. I have been on this forum all that time. I have read the warnings many many times about our pots and pans.

But I have an old pot that my Mom got as a shower gift back in 1950. When Mom got new pans many years ago, I asked if I could have that one. Sentimental reasons, you know - Mom was the world's best cook. Almost every meal I ate while growing up had something that was cooked in that pot. I loved it so much that when I only took what would fit in my car when I moved to South Dakota, that was one of the things I included.

Yep, you guessed it. I have been having trouble with rice, both brown and white. But last week one day I was running late and didn't have time to cook, so I just brought the rice to work and cooked it in the microwave in a ceramic bowl. I ate it that way for a week, and sure enough, the rice stays with me and I am now actually DIGESTING it.

I feel like such a fool for not taking the warnings more seriously. I will still keep the cherished pot Mom gave me, but I think I might plant flowers in it. :rolleyes:
