Yes, you can generally put an aluminum pan in the oven. Aluminum is a safe metal for oven use, and many people use aluminum pans for baking and roasting. However, there are a few things to keep in mind:
Ensure the aluminum pan is labeled oven-safe, and check its temperature limits. Most standard aluminum pans are safe for ovens at around 400 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit (approximately 200 to 230 degrees Celsius).
Avoid High-Acidic Foods
Avoid using aluminum pans for cooking highly acidic or alkaline foods, as they can react with the metal, affecting the taste of the food and potentially causing the pan to deteriorate over time.
Shape and Size
Make sure the aluminum pan is an appropriate shape and size for your oven and the dish you are preparing.
If your aluminum pan has a non-stick coating, be sure it is labeled oven-safe. Some non-stick coatings may have temperature limitations.
Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions and recommendations for your specific aluminum pan. If you have any doubts about whether a particular pan is suitable for oven use, it’s best to check with the manufacturer or choose an alternative oven-safe cookware.
