Aluminum Characteristics Aluminum is a light-weight metal with a bright silvery
luster. Small amounts of other metals are added to
aluminum to make harder alloys for most uses. Its
affinity for oxygen makes it resistant to corrosion and attack by most chemicals. Most aluminum used in visible parts of appliances is lacquered or otherwise coated, anodized or painted.
Aluminum reacts with air to grow its own thin oxide
coating very fast. This hard, dark gray coating protects the metal. It's found on all bare aluminum surfaces, including utensils which, if rubbed on a counter or range top, or other material, makes a dark gray mark. If washed off the outside of the pan, it quickly forms again. A commercial process, called "anodizing", thickens this coat and often colors it. Anodizing does not rub off. A special
anodizing process produces a very hard, dark gray finish on professional type cookware.
