    A lot of recipes call for mixing or cooking ingredients in a "non-reactive" bowl/pan

    Is stainless steel considered "non-reactive"?

    it is nonreactive. So is glass.

    They are talking about aluminum and an acid food it will either make the food taste bad or is bad for you type of thing.

    copper, and autoclave clean for proper results.

    if you're not working at the haute cuisine level, stainless is fine for everything else.

    Aluminium is nearly verboten from good cooking, with the exception of a few items like steamers & pressure cookers.

    Glass sucks, stainless rocks, and triple layer bottoms are the best.

    I replaced my steamer and pressure cooker with stainless. No more aluminum in my kitchen...
